Chris was prompt, very helpful with our luggage, had a clean, comfortable vehicle, and was a very safe driver. On the drive to Santiago he engaged in a very detailed, informative and interesting conversation about the history of Chile and the current situation in the country. The tour of Santiago was thorough, covering most areas of life in the city, and Chris was very accommodating to our particular needs. Thanks Chris!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, that's a great review.!! , i'm glad i met you, kind wishes, Chris.

Date: Feb 21/20

We had an Amazing day wine tasting in the Maipo Valley! Chris was super friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to boutique wineries where we felt like VIP's since we were the only ones there. Super private and lovely. The wines were excellent and we learned so much. This wine tour was better than any tour we had in Napa and Sonoma Valley. For extra special bonus ask him to take you to the empanada place on the wAy home.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a delight to meet you both, and you're right, those are the best empanadas !! All the best..

Our last day in Santiago. At Christopher's suggestion. we travelled into the Andes. The scenery is absolutely stunning. Christopher's descriptions of the Geography of the area are vivid. And the icing on the cake? Seeing the majestic Condors in flight. Thank you Christopher for sharing Valparaiso, Santiago and the Andes with us. It is a shame that we could not learn about your wines from you.Maybe next time?

Day two of our tours with Christopher. He is an engaging and knowledgeable guide, and a fluent English speaker. His enthusiasm for his city and his country are infectious. Thanks to Chris's introduction, Santiago is now definitely a top 10 city on our list

After a very late port closure, Christopher repositioned an collected us from a changed cruise line terminal. He gave us a thorough and fascinating tour of Valparaiso, and then transported us to our Santiago Hotel. This was the first of three enjoyable day tours with Christopher.

We took a day tour with Chris to Valparaiso, including a stop off at a winery in Casablanca. Chris was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable about a wide range of topics, history, local features, and modern Chile. The walk around the streets was awesome and we have great memories. Chris didn't rush us and we had plenty of time to take photos and talk to him. He recommended a great restaurant for lunch. If you want an intimate and interesting tour to Valparaiso then we highly recommend using Chris.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Also had a awesome day with you both , good luck in your future travels. !!

Christopher is a wonderful guide and I would highly recommend him for your travel needs in Valparaiso, Vino Del Mar and Santiago Chile. He is very knowledgeable and told our group the history and stories of the region. He picked us up on time at the cruise terminal and took us on a 10 hour tour of the region before our flight home. He was accommodating to our needs as we had some folks with walking difficulties. He was attentive, funny and his English was perfect. He is one of the best guides we have had.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jeff,. Hope you and family are well, see you next !!

Christopher was personable, prompt, provided comfortable transportation and enthusiastically shared his knowledge of the Santiago area, Valparaiso, Vina del Mar and the Casablanca wine region. To further customize the trip, we were able to: stop at a roadside shop for a coffee/restroom break, visit an additional winery (Bodegas RE), shop in Valparaiso and enjoy lunch at the Casas del Bosque winery, in addition to the tour. The day was well planned, tailored to our requests and was not rushed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed your company, thanks! !

Date: Jan 14/19

Concerned as the day before the tour ,had a note to say our tour guide was unavailable, but,they would try to get a new tour guide for us. This was a Sunday! We had no need to worry as we later received a note to give us the name of our new tour guide. Chris was on time in the hotel reception and was a very friendly guy who appeared to want to introduce us to Santiago, as he saw it, but, did ask if we wanted to change the itinerary in any way and he was happy to oblige. Very happy with our day with Chris
