This was a unique tour, getting to see real penguins, and a truly enjoyable day getting out of the city of Santiago and exploring a different landscape. Leo was knowledgeable about the region, and obviously cared that we had a good experience. He provided snacks and water, the car had wi-fi, and he took us to both a cute local coffee shop for a break, and restaurant for lunch. In both places, he helped us order, so a language barrier wasn't a problem. Leo is also a photographer, which was nice!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow ..Thank you very much for your great review and I love the nature and my job too and I love to share this place they are not full of tourist ..! Thank you very much and big huge Leo

A tour is only as good as your guide and if you choose Leonardo then you are guaranteed a great time. Leo is punctual, friendly and flexible with a wealth of knowledge to share. We took the tour to Penguin Island and were not dissapointed. Sensational spot and great for wildlife photographers. It seemed as though there were no other tourists, just locals which was great. Leo then took us to a great beachfront cafe for lunch, which was again wonderful. Whatever you do in Santiago, contact Leo

This was a wonderful day to the Chilean coast to see the country side and penguins at the beach. We were not disappointed. The real surprise was a special lunch on the beach with fantastic food. I would highly recommend this tour.

I was beginning to question my decision as the initial drive is a little long. But when you get to the island, Penguins were abundant along with pelicans, and other birds. The coastline is just beautiful and the walk easy. The lunch spot is just excellent in food quality and flavor. Eat outside if the weather allows. On the way back there will be some napping and digesting.

Leo is a fantastic tour guide. He is courteous, accommodative and took the extra mile to bring us to places beyond the itinerary listing e.g. "fisherman village" at Zapallar area, despite extending the tour schedule. He brings along his binocular as to ensure that we were able to better view the Penguins and left us with a very memorable experience in Chile. A special thanks for giving the family and I this special memory.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Whye Suent Leong Thank you for your review and for you trust in my job as your local guide and all the extra I did is nothing because I love what I do Thank you and say hello to your husband and dauther Leo
This is a beautiful tour! Leo was an amazing guide!!! Very informative and very entertaining. It really felt like we were with an old friend, not someone we just met. He was very friendly, nice and accommodating. The drive from Santiago was beautiful. Cachagua & Zapallar are amazing costal towns, very beautiful and definitely worth the trip. We really felt like we got a sense of Chile after this trip. One thing about the penguins, they are small and on a little island off shore so they're hard to see.

Wonderful guide! Leonardo was great. His knowledge of local history was extensive. He was great with our four rambunctious kids. I will definately book another tour with him once we return to Santiago.

Dorothy DummettUnited States
My guide, Leonardo, was excellent. His English was very good and his knowledge of where to see condor birds was most enjoyable. I took as many photos of the Humbolt Penguin as I wanted and we ate lunch at a very nice restaurant that overlooked the beach. The day I spent with him in Chile was the best of my 4 week vacation to Antarctica.

I recently had the pleasure of booking Leonardo to conduct a day tour to the Chilean coast from Santiago. Prompt, informative, prepared and knowledgable. We saw Penquins, Sea Lions, beautiful scenery, had a very memorable lunch and the whole time it felt like we were spending the day with an old friend. I highly recommend him.
