Gabriel was a great host, very knowledgeable and friendly. He arrived early for our pickup and selected an amazing winery for us to tour, taste and buy. His van was roomy, clean, comfortable and new.

Gabriel was an excellent guide, very conversant, knowledgeable and easy to interact with. He picked us up from our cruise ship in San Antonio in a large, late model, clean van (4 persons + 8 luggage) and toured us to Vina de Mar (great little museum there) drove along the shore to Valpariso where we walked around the city where he discussed the architecture and had lunch in a wonderful restaurant (great fish) overlooking the city and then to our VRBO in Santiago. Gabriel is highly recommended.

Gabriel is yet another first class guide. He knows the area and recognises individual needs within the group. He is thoughtful and considerate. Cathy and both have health issues and have limited mobility. Gabriel was very thoughtful in this area. The winery he took us too was one of the best meals during our five week holiday. We would recommend Gabriel to any traveler wanting excellence and value for money Thank you very much from Tim Cathy Beau and Lee

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tim Cathy Beau and Lee I am very happy that you had a good time with my excursion, I also had a great time with your company, and thank you very much for your comments. Regards, Gabriel O.

Gabriel was very accommodating. The plan was to take the tour of the area and then get dropped off at the port where our cruise was to begin. Prior to flying into Santiago we had some misinformation as to where on the coast we were to catch our cruise ship. With the correct information in hand Gabriel made sure we were taken to the right place and on time. He picked us up at the airport when he said he would and adjusted our tour to make it all work. We learned so much from him about the local culture.

Gabriel did a wonderful job in picking us up at the cruise ship terminal in San Antonio and then taking us on a full day tour of Santiago and the surrounding areas before dropping us at the airport for our flights home. He was informative and helpful and we really appreciated his thorough knowledge of history and architecture among other topics. We also appreciated his excellent email communication in planning the tour. I would definitely recommend Gabriel as a tour guide. We had a wonderful time.

I rate Gabriel as Outstanding. He is by the far the best tour guide that I have ever had in all my worldwide travels and tours. He speaks English very well, having lived in New York City for over four years. He has a very broad perspective since he has personally traveled to many countries in South America and Europe. I recommend him this highly without qualification.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Michael Levitt I am very grateful for your opinion about me, and I'm glad you enjoyed the tour, and I hope to see you for the next time, thanks again. Regards, Gabriel O.

Our day trip with Gabriel was wonderful. We started with a visit to Valparaiso, where we took the funicular and walked down through charming neighborhoods decorated with murals. Then after lunch we went to a beautiful vineyard and learned about Chilean wine making. I just wish we had had more time to enjoy this part of the world. Gabriel was a great guide and has a very comfortable car. I highly recommend him to you.

Gabriel is an outstanding guide for this full day tour. We are tired of group tours and chose this private tour. It was wonderful!! We got a perfect amount of walking the hilly streets in Valparaiso and were able to stop in several other spots for pictures. The tour finishes with the perfect winery visit which includes time in their vineyard, plant and wine tasting room. Gabriel is a fountain of knowledge and excellent driver. I highly recommend taking a tour with him like my wife and I did.

Spent a wonderful day with Gabriel who shared his knowledge and experience of this beautiful region. We came away from our tour with the feeling that we had experienced an in depth ( although short) exposure which couldn't be gotten without a very good guide. Lovely day!

Might be an unfair rating as Gabriel didn't actually give us our tour as he arranged for a substitute do to illness. While the substitute was nice and spoke good English, it wasn't the experience I've come to expect from Tours by Locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good morning, my apologies for what happened in the city tour made on February 16, I could not do the service mentioned, due to my last minute health status, the staff of toursbylocals will contact you, to see details of what happened. Thank you. Regards, Gabriel O.

Gabriel's one-on-one City Tour was an excellent overview of Santiago. His English is very good ... I am not a Spanish speaker, and we had no difficulty in communicating. He is a life-long Santiago resident, and is well travelled, including a four year diplomatic posting in New York. He's very knowledgable about Santiagos cultural and natural history, politics, and architecture, and is easy to spend an afternoon with lots of good conversation along with the learning. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind and sincere comments on my performance in our city tour in the city of Santiago. Regards, Gabriel O.

Wow!! Gabriel is truly amazing in his complete knowledge about Chile and Santiago. If you are interested in specific details; dates, architects, architecture, history, Gabriel is your man. Our tour was comprehensive including neighborhoods that buses do not go to. We felt lucky to be with Gabriel because his English was so good and he was so able to answer all our questions. I highly recommend him.

We have a group of nearly 40 people taking the South America Cruise Tour and need excursion on the last day from San Antonio to Santiago. I contacted Gabriel. He was very easy to work with from the very beginning. Since we were a large group, so there was another guide Myriam accompany us. Myriam was very knowledgeable and detailed. Gabriel always stayed at the end of the group to make sure everyone was there. I strongly recommend Gabriel and Myriam.

Gabriel gave me the Santiago city tour this week. I found his tour to be interesting, detailed and engaging. I feel I got a solid history lesson along with a good feel for what life is like in Santiago. I flew in from Chicago with little background or knowledge of Santiago or Chile in general and Gabriel was awesome. I highly recommend taking his tour.

Gabriel is terrific. He gives an excellent tour of the city. He has so much to offer on the history of Chile. This was the second year in a row that I have used his services. The first time I met him was 8 years ago. My friend and I loved the visit to the private race track club. Gabriel is an exceptional guide. His English language skills are great. I highly recommend him. Keep up the good work, Gabriel.
