We spent a wonderful day exploring Viña del Mar and Valparaíso with Roberto. The car was really comfortable and clean. He welcomed us with bottles of water and provided lots of explanation during the entire day. He offered options for walking in Valparaíso and brought us to a very neat place for lunch on a roof top patio offering open view on the city and the ocean.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your reference Simon, all the best!

Date: Mar 18/18

We were very lucky to find Roberto. Our pick-up from San Antonio port went very well, despite the late arrival of our ship. He customised the day very well and we saw and did a lot - the coastal villages, a bird sanctuary, Valparaiso, a winery, the countryside between the coast and Santiago, and Santiago itself. He was also very interesting to talk to, and we learned a lot about the country, its culture and history. We would thoroughly recommend him to any visitors to the area.

We used Roberto in Santiago, Chile. He was terrific. We toured with him for 2 days and really enjoyed what he shared with us. He also gave us a great recommendation for dinner. Top Notch

Roberto is an excellent guide. He knows a lot about the culture and history of Chile and is eager to share his knowledge. He was amenable to customizing the tour to our interests and helps us with other travel plans in Chile. Highly recommended!

My daytrip with Roberto to Valparaiso and Vina del Mar was absolutely fantastic! He was incredibly informative about the area and customized the tour based on my interests. Not only is he a great guide, but he is genuinely a terrific person. Thanks Roberto!

Roberto was just fantastic! He showed us many different sites that the cruise ship tours would never go, both in the countryside and in Valparaiso. The place we stopped for tapas was like "having lunch in a postcard". Our highest ratings for this tour.

Roberto is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. His tour was imaginative and took us to places off the normal tourist trail, as well as the main sites. We felt we had a rounded impression of Santiago at the end, and thoroughly enjoyed our morning.

We had a few hours with Roberto after he picked us up from San Antonio Cruise-ship Terminal. He maximized the time for us to explore 2 very special vineyards on our way to Santiago. While in Santiago, he took us to the top of the hill to take in the beauty of the city. He showed us many interesting sites and buildings. Along the way, he always educated us, gave us the back stories and explained in details the history, progress and future of Santiago/Chile. We will definitely hire Roberto again!

This was our second tour with Roberto and it was another good one. It was a perfect way to see part of Chile around Santiago for half a day, have a leisurely lunch, get dropped off at the port in San Antonio and get on the ship after all the crowds. (Sorry for my delay in giving feedback, but we finally have decent internet after our cruise!)

Excellent tour by Roberto. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and even had arranged a picnic, on a scenic spot, where he brought wine and home made food that he had prepared. Great tour with lots of nice scenery, new experiences and impressions. However Roberto made the tour so much more special. I would give him 5 stars+

Roberto is deeply knowledgeable about so many topics in Chilean and South American history and culture. On top of learning so much from him, we were so relaxed in his good hands as he is very reliable, flexible and easy-going. He was really able to condense so many quality experiences into a day! Highly recommend without any reservations!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so Glad to share with you, I end that day with a very nice feeling of sharing with yours! All the best!

Roberto met us at the airport and provided an excellent 1/2 day of activities to fill the time before we could check in to our hotel. He asked us for input on any particular areas of interest and modified the tour to meet our requests. He had very good English communication skills since we know very little Spanish. The "jugo" at the market was outstanding -- well worth a visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jim & Tammy, thanks for all, very nice to meet you!!

Roberto was a perfect guide and worked hard to make sure we had an enjoyable day. Our cruise ship diverted it's original scheduled port from Valparaiso to San Antonio. To complicate our plans the day of our visit was a religious holiday. We decided to concentrate our visit on San Antonio region at Roberto' suggestion and he showed us amazing sights, marine and bird sanctuaries and shoreline observation peaks that only a local would know about. Roberto later found us a unique seafood restaurant.

To see a city the way it should be seen needs to be through the eyes of someone born and raised in that city. What a wonderful decision that we made by doing this. Roberto was an amazing guide with so much information and knowledge. He made sure that we saw everything we wanted and more. He was caring, informative, and very considerate of our slower pace. His choice of restaurant for lunch was the Ocean Pacific's. Delicious food and an awesome theme. Roberto, you are the best. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: George &a Irene Thank you very much for make it posible! I would love to have the nice pictures, have a nice happy new year! Legovini@gmail.com Best regards Roberto L.

Thank you Roberto! I have been on dozens of private tours on 3 continents and I can honestly say that the tour with Roberto was the best! His passion for his country and people, and his knowledge of history was incredible. We were welcomed with open arms at every stop. Roberto spoke excellent English and his flexibility and easy going attitude ensured a relaxing, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable tour. I highly recommend Roberto for anyone heading to Santiago or surrounding areas. Top notch!
