Mary Ann DriscollUnited States
Larisa planned a full day walking tour of Santiago for us. Larisa and the tour were terrific. She knows the history of Chile and integrated it as we walked through the city's neighborhoods and markets. By the end of the day it felt like we were walking with an old friend. We would highly recommend Larisa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words Mary Ann. It was a pleasure to meet you and Jackie, and to share Santiago with you. I enjoyed our conversations and it really felt like exploring the city with good friends. Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
Carol OsbornUnited States
Larisa has all the wonderful elements of a perfect guide: a good storyteller, insightful, flexible and a good sense of humor. We loved her orientation to Santiago and gave us a framework to understand this wonderful city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Carol! This was one of the most fun tours I’ve had. Five star clients. :) Enjoy the rest of your vacation ladies!
Shelbi HerringUnited States
great tour, very professional and enjoyable! Will definitely seek out Larisa again on our next trip to Santiago
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Shelbi! I'm happy to hear that the group enjoyed the tour. Thanks again for booking!
Eileen KaufmanUnited States
We loved our walking tour with Larisa. She was very knowledgeable and personable and took us to places we would never have found on our own. We chose the tour because it promised that it would take us to neighborhoods that are not typically seen by traditional city tours. We visited neighborhoods with fascinating architecture and equally fascinating histories, as provided by Larisa. I enthusiastically recommend Larisa as a wonderful guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Eileen for writing such a wonderful review! I had lots of fun with you, Joanne, Richard and Robert. I am happy that you enjoyed the tour! Come back soon, there is so much more to see! :)
Larissa was delightful and very informative. She was waiting at the meeting point ahead of time and got the tour started immediately. We particularly enjoyed her great local knowledge and the fact that she was obviously well known and liked by the stall holders. We received several tastings at no extra cost and learnt quite a bit about Chilean food culture. We highly recommend Larissa to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Glenys for your kind words! I had a great time guiding you through the markets and I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the experience. :) Gracias!
Ellen RussellUnited States

We duly took this walking tour with Larisa, who came to our hotel even though it was the side of the city. It gave us a chance to travel by underground and, little did we know what exciting experiences and encounters were in store! She really encapsulated The Charms of Old Santiago in every sense of the word, including an impromptu haircut at the 2nd oldest barbers in the world. Her knowledge, her command of English and her sense of fun were infectious. A very professional job all round!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ginny, it was a great pleasure to meet you, Susan and James, and to show you my favorite neighborhoods! I am glad that you went home with beautiful memories from Santiago and that I got to be a part of your experience. Thank you so much for this wonderful review! I hope our paths cross again. :)
Harry LawrenceUnited States
Larissa is a delight, knowledgeable and prompt. This was our second tour with her and if we could we would give 6 ��. She knows Santiago's food and wine scene and gave us a bunch of great recommendations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Harry! It was a pleasure to show you the markets and I am happy my recommendations were helpful. :)
Harry LawrenceUnited States
Larissa was wonderful, knowledgeable and very accommodating to our interests. We would rate her 6 stars if available.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Harry, thank you for choosing me as your Santiago guide! You were a lovely family to tour with and it was a real pleasure for me to show you around the city. I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay and that Jeanne had a memorable birthday dinner. All the best to you, Jeanne and Geoff.
I rated her a 5 star but I would love to rate her a 7!!! She was organized, professional, kind, interesting to listen to and instantly likeable. We just loved her!! Our best tour guide ever! Larisa had a great handle on what things we were personally interesting to us. She was beyond accommodating and was more like a good friend and not someone just doing her job. Sincerely, Tour By Locals is very lucky to have Larisa represent them. Sincerely Dr Bob and Julie Boadway
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie and Bob, thank you so much for this glowing review! Exploring the city with you was a real pleasure and hearing about your past travels gave me so many ideas for my future trips (I am looking forward to receiving your travel notes on Portugal). :) I hope that my suggestions helped make the most out of the rest of your stay in Santiago. Warm regards to both of you, hoping our paths cross again.
Jon PorterUnited States
You know your tour guide is a true local when she is greeted by the fruit and vegetable vendors and the waiters in the fish market! Our time with Larisa went by very quickly! We started in the flower market and then spent quite a bit of time in the fruit and vegetable markets. You must check out the custard apple! Larisa was kind enough to share some olives with us too. Larissa kindly suggested several restaurants to check out and we can't wait to go back to Santiago to do so.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jon and Karen, it was great to meet you and I'm happy that you enjoyed the tour. Thank you so much for this wonderful review. :) Hope to see you back here in the near future.
