We had a wonderful tour by Roberto of the Canyon and volcanoes on February 16, 2019; Our tour guide Roberto was excellent in his presentation of the highlights and the country's history. We could have had a more knowledgeable, insightful and humorous guide. He was charming, and had no issues in our requests to include other items of item for our experience. We could think of no higher recommendation that to include Roberto on our lists of those that excel in your industry.

We just wanted to let you know that our time yesterday with Roberto was a great experience. Best city tour we have ever had. We experienced much of Santiago and learned a lot about Chile and its history. We also were led by him to Colmado, truly the world's greatest coffee shop

Roberto did more than live up to his reviews that I'd previously read. He is devoted to his trade, has an amazing amount of energy and knowledge of the city and puts his heart and soul into the entire day. We saw so much of the city, not just only the touristic side but he also shared some of his personal favorite spots and we especially liked the Human Rights museum. I only wish we would have had more time in Santiago. He also picked us up the previous day in San Antonio and that tour was also a great.

I can't say enough positive about our tour with Roberto. He met us on time and pours his heart and soul into the profession. He was able to show us his own personal favorite spots on the way to Valparaiso via Vina del Mar, then taking us on an interesting walking tour, showing us fantastic grafitti and ending in a great restaurant for lunch. When one couple forgot their bag in his van at the end, he returned to the airport and didn't give up until he found them. He's a special guide!

I would easily give Roberto 5 stars. It is a little more difficult to rate the total experience as we were just a little bit disappointed with the city of Valparaiso after all we had heard about the marvels and beauty of the city. Therefore, I would give the total experience 4 stars. My rating of Valparaiso obviously has nothing to do with the performance of either Roberto or your organization, which worked very well and was very responsive.

Roberto was a very good guide. Our flight arrived late and he was very flexible. It was a long 2 hour drive to the mountains through all the Santiago traffic but Roberto was very engaging and communicative. The empanadas we bought on the way to our picnic lunch were good as was the fruit salad he brought for us. The 20 minute walk to the waterfall was nice.

Roberto didn't show and didn't let us know until his replacement arrived. Didn't get an opportunity to chose the guide/replacement. Substitute was good which is the only reason I'm giving a 3 star rating.

We took a Tour to Viña del Mar and Valparaiso with Roberto and I must say that we were very satisfied. Robert come to pick us up at the hotel at the fixed time in his own car that was new, clean and comfortable. He was very friendly, easy going and very knowledgeable about the area. He set the tour as our needs and had the flexibility to accommodate all our requests during the day. I highly recommend Roberto's guide service.

Roberto arrived early to meet us. His car fitted the 4 of us comfortably. We drove to Valparaíso via Viña del Mar. Roberto was fabulously knowledgeable about social economy, his English was excellent. We spent our time in Valparaíso and skipped the wineries because we loved Valparaíso so much (and seen many wineries before) so this was just what we wanted. He found things in Valparaíso that we never would have found by ourselves and even introduced us to artists. So fun!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review! It was very nice to meet you! All the best!

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.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tnak you very much Kenneth! a big hug from Santiago!

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 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.

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.
