Maritza was a great tour guide. As I was preparing to book this excursion, she was willing to answer all my questions in a quick and timely manner. Once she picked us up, she gave us a great tour of the Punta Arenas and told us lots about the city. She explained everything about the day and so we were well prepared. We wanted to purchase some very specific items and Maritza helped us to find them.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a nice surprise! Thank you all for being part of one of my tours. I want you to know how easy it was for me having a party like yours so interested in knowing things about the place where I live. All the best. Maritza

Thanks much to Maritza! Super job arranging our tour and You made our group trip unforgettable! Boat ride to Magdalena Island was a wonderful trip. Time we spend in the Penguin colony was unusual experience that we will never forget. Tour guide Jaime was a very knowledge of history and architecture of Punta Arenas which served to enhance our experience and appreciation of Punta Arenas. We highly recommend this tour and Maritza!!

Three of us had a very enjoyable tour of Torres del Paine through ToursByLocals. We had an excellent guide in Maritza A. Maritza is extremely knowledgeable of Torres del Paine (TDP) - its landscape, history and local traditions. She entertained us with anecdotes and well-researched commentaries. She showed us the best of TDP effectively and efficiently. She is flexible with her hours and very serviced oriented. As a consequence, we had two fun days at TDP. Thanks Maritza.

Our tour guide was fantastic! I have spent the last ten minutes trying to give her five stars, but the site does not work so well. I hope they will fix it because she deserves five stars and more! She was so personable and knowledgeable! Clean and new van that was more than enough space for the five of us. She also was very accommodating as we had special needs with the children. It was a wonderful day! We highly recommend her!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you all!

Our tour in Punta Arenas had a last minute change in our guide (from Javier to Maritza). Maritza was very enjoyable and the van we toured in was very comfortable for our group of 4. Because of the late change there did seem to be some confusion on what sights we were to see but he did his best to accommodate and all went as best could be expected.

no penguins; alternative tour was given but it was pretty marginal

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The penguin colony was opened and closed several times during the season due to the decreasing number of penguins. It was 100% unforeseeable. We did offer a hike instead,so we drove 125 Kms. round trip to a new trail for hikers which is considered superb by the tourism Board in Chile. Now I know it is not that much. Anyway the customer is always right. Thank you very much to have traveled with us.

Maritza, she is the best 5 out of 5. She took us to a few extras based on our interests and customized the tour to our hopes and desires. Thank you Maritza and I'll be sending you a few great photos!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was so happy to see you were enjoying nature so much as I do. Thank you very much for your interest in knowing about the place I love so much. Still the best birder I have had.

Tour: City Tour in Punta Arenas, Punta Arenas, Magallanes, Chile
Date: Dec 31/15

We had originally planned to take an all-day tour with Maritza, but the penguins did not arrive at the Otway Sound this year, so she adjusted the plans and gave us three-hour city tour of Punta Arenas. We appreciated her knowledge and good spirits, particularly during our tour of the Braun cemetery.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments. That was great to meet you all. Kind regards, Maritza
