We're so glad we took this private tour instead of doing the bus excursion through the cruise line. Miguel is very personable and full of a lot of info. He made our day very enjoyable. We learned so much more than just listening to a narrative on a bus. Miguel is a fun guy and very down to earth. He dropped us off at a few places and let us roam but was always clear when and where to meet up again. Thank you Miguel for a great day.

Miguel H was. A wonderful guide. He was prompt, knowledgeable, funny, personable, accepting and flexible. He was honest and adapted our day with the weather challenges. It was disappointing not to get to see the volcanos due to weather, but Miguel made a special day for us. Looking forward to our next 'tours by locals' ports of call!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola David P. ! Gracias! Thank you very much for your kind words. We never know what the weather have to us. I really appreciate your sense of humor! All the best for you 3 !

Miguel picked the four of us up at our cruise ship. What an excellent and fun day we had! Miguel is a pleasure to be with, his English is excellent and we saw as much of the area as possible during our afternoon! A five star day in Puerto Montt and surrounding areas. We couldn't have asked for more!

We had a wonderful tour with Miguel. He showed us around and explained a lot about the culture and the nature (especially the volcano). We (the 4 of us) were super comfortable in his car (a minivan). I recommend Miguel for this tour of the volcano, the falls and the town of puerto Varas. Moreover he took us to some amazing viewpoints in the city that he knows very well because he lives there! He gave us plenty of time everywhere and we didn't feel rushed which was great! Miguel is our new friend in chili
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm really glad to be your host. And very sure that you have a new friend down here! A very big wow! For you. Kind, Miguel

Miguel provided our group of 3 'senior travelers' with a wonderful experience. He has deep knowledge of the area and loves his community and country. It shows and it adds to the value of dealing with a truly local person almost 'one and one'. Two of us had visited the area numerous times, the 3rd person was a first timer in Chile. The experience was equally great for all 3. Would recommend Miguel without reservations. Very good guide. Nice person. April 2019

Miguel was on time to pick us up at the ship, and we quickly headed out of town. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't so good and the volcano was totally covered in clouds. Miguel still took the time to drive us to the top. We did see the falls and enjoyed them and Miguel gave us good suggestions for lunch in his home town. For us, it would've been too much time shopping/eating. We did see some city views upon return and too and drive along the ocean.

Miguel hat uns heute Morgen pünktlich am Kreuzfahrtpier in Puerto Montt abgeholt und auch wieder zuverlässig zur rechten Zeit zurück gebracht. Wir waren sehr zufrieden und konnten unsere Tour mit seinen Anregungen perfekt gestalten. Miguel hat uns informativ und kompetent über die Geschichte und die Natur informiert. Englisch war kein Problem für ihn und wir konnten uns gut unterhalten. Auch italienisch und gehört zu Miguels Sprachschatz und ein wenig Deutsch. Vielen Dank für den schönen Tag

Miguel is an excellent tour guide. He is very pleasant, funny, and knowledgeable. His vehicle was very comfortable. We saw some beautiful sites with Miguel, and he took us to an authentic Chilean restaurant for Lunch. It was an excellent tour with an excellent guide.

Magical and comprehensive tour! We issued flexible instructions to show us some art and horses on our way. Did he deliver! We saw an eclectic mix of sculpture at the lake front in multiple locations. He then stopped where Chilaen horses were readying for a rodeo, complete with gauchos in traditional dress!! Miguel was kind, attentive,and very informative regarding the area's history and culture. Lunch in Puerto Varas was terrific with fresh fish and muerte/quince dessert. Expert with mobility issues!

Miguel picked the four of us up at the dock in Puerto Montt, Chile for a day long tour -- fantastic day. We had asked him to make lunch reservations at a specific restaurant "Donde el Gordito" (where Anthony Bourdain had eaten) and he took us there for a wonderful lunch. We couldn't have asked for (or even anticipated) a better day -- beautiful scenery, volcanoes and waterfalls. If you are looking for a GREAT tour guide, pick Miguel . . . you will not be sorry. Thanks -- Ron, Judy, Maureen and Jim

THIS tour needed to be altered owing to the health of one of the participants.A walk in the rain forest was not going to be a sensible option . We went to a tour of the Falls followed by A visit to a local restaurant for a honey and lemon tea to relieve my chest infection. we then went to Puerto Varta where we spent time exploring and having coffee. we were driven back to Puerto Montt where we visited the local market. Miguel was flexible and understanding, and made the day enjoyable for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Im really happy to know that I did something special for you and your experiencie. I hope to see you soon to do the walk in alerce andino! Best for you. Miguel.
Amanda TraversUnited States
This tour was excellent. We absolutely adored the town Frutillar (be sure to try the kuchen!) and the views of the volcanoes on the ride were breathtaking. Miguel was a great tour guide and very informative not only about our sites, but all our questions about Chile. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Miguel was a fantastic guide - friendly, knowledgeable, interested in giving us the best experience possible. His English is great, and he was very patient in allowing me to try out my Spanish as well. The heart of our tour was the visit to the Petrohue falls in the Vicente Perez Rosales National Park along with the hiking around the Laguna Verde. Miguel shared a lot of natural and cultural history as well as making sure that we were able to take our time and see everything! Fabulous tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Pamela! Thank you so much for your comments. That helps to keep guiding as I really feel that we have to do it: closer and friendly as you wrote. Thank you again to let me show this wonderfull part of my country! See you soon!

Miguel waited 3 hours for my cruise ship to arrive and for my disembarkation. His upbeat humorous nature minimized the rain that seemed to come and go, along with warm sunny times and suddenly cool winds. Miguel had me laughing most of the time on the drive to the lakes, volcanos and waterfalls. We also stopped for a delicious lunch of local crab in a local restaurant--one previously visited by Anthony Bourdain. It was a delightful day...weather and all. Muchisimas gracias.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sandra! Im very glad being your welcomer! Keep your beautiful humor! Thank you!!! See you next season!
