Victor provided an outstanding all day tour of the Valparaiso and Santiago area. He started providing us with non stop detailed descriptions of the history, economy, etc of the area from the time we embarked in the van at San Antonio. We did not have to pry the information from him. His ability to balance driving and keeping up the verbal presentation were admired by our group. His speaks excellent English. We highly recommend you contact Victor for a private tour if you get to the area.

Victor was amazing. Spoke excellent English and took us to a great boutique winery. Toured Vina De Mar and had lunch overlooking the ocean. Onward to Valparaiso where after touring through the town he dropped us at our hotel. He is so good we booked another tour with him on Wed for a tour and transfer to our cruise ship in San Antonio.
This tour was superb and we were very impressed with Victor. Victor was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, his English was excellent, he was a courteous driver, and the van was clean and met the needs of our group perfectly.

Great tour.... Victor was early to our hotel.. speaks excellent English and was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Valparaiso and the surrounding areas. So easy to be taken to the interesting places without having to try get to and from Santiago. Private tour for price of a bigger tour group.

We had a fabulous day with Victor visiting Valparaiso, Vina del Mar and two wineries in Casablanca. He is very knowledgeable and very easy to get along with. We were very happy to be able to spend the day with him. This was the second time I used Victors services while visiting Santiago and would certainly use him again when in Santiago.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I do appreciate your comments John and I'm very glad you have enjoyed all what we did here and I hope we can keep in touch, because there is always something interesting and new arising here, as you well know. Muchas gracias John and please give my regards to your son and wife. ¡ Hasta la vista amigos !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Clients required to stop by the Santiago fruits and vegetables market, but by the time we arrived the city, that market was almost closed on Sunday and the only chance for that fruit shopping, would have been at the supermarket. All that not part of this tour itinerary, anyway.I offered them to go the local store, But it was also closed.I'm sorry for that.

What a wonderful day with Victor! We stopped at the Emiliana winery for a tasting, then went on to Vina del Mar to see the sights and enjoy a seafood lunch. We then went to Valparaiso where we rode one of the old funiculars and went to several scenic viewpoints to marvel at the vistas. Victor also drove us by many of the city's famous murals and art. We even stopped at a photo gallery since Victor knew I was an avid photographer. Victor's enthusiasm was infectious, and his English was flawless.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review mrs. Hunley. I'm very glad you enjoyed our tours here. I hope to meet you both some time again. Best regards for you teo.

We were a party of four arriving by Oceania cruise ship. Victor Hugo promptly met us at the port entrance and we headed out for our tour. We toured Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, both beautiful cities. We then headed to Casablanca Valley, Chile's icon wine valley where we toured Casas del Bosque winery. The tour and tasting at the winery was delightful. Hugo did an outstanding job, he spoke great English and he was very enjoyable to be around. I highly recommend Hugo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review Dean, I very glad you enjoyed our tour and I hope to meet you agin sometime. Un abrazo desde SNtiago

Victor was great. He was very personable and funny. He also had an excellent knowledge of the area and things I wanted to see. I would highly recommend taking his tour.
Jim F.United States
Victor provided us a great tour of Valparaiso, Vina del Mar and a winery. None of us cared for the wine we sampled at Casa del Bosques, but the winery was beautiful. We liked Victor's style of touring; he drove by various areas and points of interest in each city, offering ongoing commentary on what we were seeing. In addition, we made several stops at the more significant sites. We could have made more, but we were not so inclined. We enjoyed the overview of the cities.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments and I hope we can meet again in the future. ¡ Hasta siempre !

Victor was excellent. He brought a special local knowledge that we would not have gotten on a large tour. He was ready with a full day planned for us including a reservation at a winery and lunch which we enjoyed so much. He is a wonderful guide and representative of the Chilean people!
