Tours by locals was a great way for us to see the city we were "stuck in" for several days because of the pandemic. Miriam, our guide, was so gracious to squeeze our group into her busy schedule with very short notice. She was knowledgeable and interesting and passionate in her delivery. Some in our group signed up right away for more the next day!

Myriam must be one of the world's best guides: there was nothing she didn't know about Chile the country, history and politics - and we so enjoyed her company too. A great day out.

Myriam was fantastic. We could not be happier. She shaped the tour to our particular preferences. She was smart, witty and thoughtful, especially about the trying circumstances facing Chile, about which we were very interested. Notably also, when an item I had lost on a previous flight suddenly was found, she even offered to have the car drive to the airport so I could recover it, an impromptu benefit without which I would not have gotten it. Highly, highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both for your words. I really appreciate your comment. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your tour and besides happy to help you when it was needed. Thank you

We had an outstanding tour of Santiago with Myriam, and Julio, our driver. Myriam had extensive knowledge of the city and it's history. She is very organized, speaks excellent English, and anticipated our needs and interests. The tour was well paced, between walking and sitting, and presenting information and answering our many questions. Our 5 hours flew by quickly and were well spent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Susan , Happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and happy to share with you all the information of my country. Thanks for your comment. Keep enjoying your trip in south America.

Myriam is a FABULOUS guide! She picked up my husband and me from the San Antonio port and then took us on a full day tour of Vina Del Mar, Valparaiso and Santiago before delivering us to the airport for our evening flight. It was a great experience - both the sightseeing and the evenhanded, informative discussion of the current political situation in Chile. Myriam's language skills are top notch, as are her knowledge of history, architecture and wine. It was truly a wonderful day. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank very much Barbara for your words. It was a pleasure to share the stories of Chile with someone that appreciate the information. Warm regards for both of you

My family of 4 took this particular full day tour with Myriam. Myriam is punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. She showed us all the pertinent things along with some things off the beaten path in Valparaiso, Vina Del Mar and along the way. She answered all of our questions to our satisfaction. The driver that she had appointed was very professional and courteous. We were dropped back to our hotel in time. I would certainly very highly recommend taking this particular tour to any traveler.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for words. We had some great days together. Enjoy the merken and the jam of alcayota ;-) Warm regards from Chile

Myriam was outstanding on our tour of Valparaiso & Santiago Chile. We had a long layover in Santiago & she accommodated our schedule and interests perfectly. She works with an excellent driver which allowed her to give her full attention to interacting with us. Her wide-ranging background knowledge adds to the experience. We truly felt we had a personalized tour in the alleyways of Valparaiso, enjoyed a lovely lunch, & finished w/ an interesting tour of the main sights of Santiago. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Tracey. Valparaiso is my favourite city so I always happy to go back and show you the best of my beloved city. Warm regards. Myriam

Myriam gave us a wonderful day out, letting us see Valparaiso in all its glorious manifestations. Valparaiso is best enjoyed on foot and by using a driver, Myriam enhances the tour unhindered by parking concerns. It also allows her to concentrate on filling us in with her great knowledge about Chile during the journey. Visiting during the recent troubles, Myriam adapted the timings of the tour so that we avoided demonstrations while losing nothing of the tour. We left with wonderful memories.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks George for your review, thanks for the flexibility that help us to get the most of every single opportunity and situation and we did. Happy to know that you enjoyed the tour. Warm regards, Myriam

Great walking tour with Myriam. She was very good at informing me about the situation in Santiago before I arrived. We managed to see a lot, and also specific places I had requested. Afterwards she was excellent at following up and suggesting things to see on my own. This was my first time using Tours by Locals, but definitely not the last. I give Myriam my very best recommendations.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy to read your words Sarah. Thank you for your flexibility, it was very important. I felt the same way it was great to spend that time talking with you. Hope you continue enjoying your days in Chile.

On Nov 3 Myriam led my wife and me on a splendid walking tour of Valparaiso, followed by a shorter tour of Viña del Mar, and finishing with a stop at the Veramonte winery, where we enjoyed a lovely glass of their Carmenere. Our trip was not impacted by any protests. Myriam is an excellent guide. She is friendly, knowledgeable, energetic and flexible - very focused on meeting the interests of her clients (and keeping them safe). We really benefited from her wine expertise at Veramonte. Highly recommend.

Myriam is an excellent guide! She is knowledgeable, friendly, high energy and flexible - always seeking to provide the experience her clients want. Our walking tour was not adversely impacted by the recent protests as we were not wanting to visit the museums that were closed. Things were quiet in Santiago during our tour but Myriam was alert to ensure our safety was her top priority. We also had a tremendous full day tour to Valparaiso with Myriam on Nov 3 and will post a separate review.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Doug, thank you very much for your words. I had a great time with you both, we talked about many different topics I loved your questions. Keep enjoying your trip in Chile.

Myriam was a wonderful guide for our tour to Valparaíso and Veña del Mar for our family with two teenage girls. On the ride there, she talked about the history and agricultural aspects of Chile (with helpful maps to show). Once we got there, she gave us lots of flexibility to create the perfect tour for us. We spent lots of time walking the hills and photographing the murals. Myriam was very knowledgeable about the artists...she even introduced us to one of them! I would highly recommend Myriam!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your words. I am very happy to know that you really enjoy the day. Keep enjoying the rest of your holidays with the family

Myriam took us on an excellent walking tour Santiago. Her knowledge of Santiago was extensive, and she made the history of Santiago quite fascinating. She was very patient with questions. She also knows the "can't miss" restaurants and sites in Santiago, so we were glad that we booked her for our first day in the city. In summary, I HIGHLY recommend booking Myriam for your Tours By Locals tour!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I love what I do and I love when people is interested in my country and its history so the tour was enjoyable for the 3 of us. Thanks again
