Leo gave an excellent tour of Santiago. He is very knowledgeable about Chile and Santiago. The pace was just right and his driver was excellent! I strongly recommend Leo.
We spent a fun filled afternoon with Leo seeing the sites of Santiago city. He was knowledgeable and considerate. His photography tips were great and he made sure we got the images in the best possible light. We loved sitting down and sharing a drink with him and sampling a Pisco Sour! Thanks Leo, 10/10! We loved our sense of humour and the laughs we had.

Rebecca SnyderIndiana, PA, United States
We had a fantastic tour of the city of Santiago with Leo. He showed us all the highlights of the city, including the different sections of the city and information about the people who lived and worked there. Our tour included both driving and walking and it was nice to stroll in the Plaza De Armas and have a guided tour of the Pre Columbian Art Museum. Leo was very friendly and seemed to know everyone in the city! We would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rebecca Thank you very much for your review and I am very happy , you enjoy and learn a lot about our culture and the Pre Columbian Art Museum , I love that place. Please the review have to be in this section , I know you write for T.A but please mention Tours by Locals Thank you very much Leo

Jacqueline FernUnited States
Our third (!) trip with Leo to Perez Cruz and Santa Rita vineyards. Terrific day out of the city. Leo again spoke to my family of 4, including 2 college students, about life in Chile: politics, economy, social issues, history. We learned non-stop and Leo tried to accommodate us by driving us past certain things in Santiago on our way our or back to the vineyards. He wants his visitors to leave happy and we surely did! Leo is a terrific guide and a wonderful, caring person. Book Leo for any trip.
Jacqueline FernUnited States
Our second day trip with Leo during our one week in Santiago. Leo graciously answered our questions about politics, the economy, the educational system, etc.. We journeyed east into the Andes, stopping for photos and having fun learning how to create memorable and beautiful pictures. Our short hike into the Andes was appropriate for our family of four, 2 college students and 2 fit adults in their 50s. If you want a challenge, ask. Leo is very accommodating. He wants his visitors to have a good time.
Jacqueline FernUnited States
Our first day with Leo, exploring Valparaiso and Vina del Mar on Christmas Day. Terrific time! No traffic on this holiday, so things were closed but easy to maneuver through the towns. Leo guided us, making the most of our time. We both drove around and walked through town. Lots of public art which Leo explained as it related to indigenous people and Chilean politics. My family of four with 2 college students loved our day trip to this UNESCO city. Run to sign up with Leo for this trip.
Great tour, highly informative, flexible (which was important with our 3-year old) and made the day very relaxed. Highly recommend and include the stop at Concha Y Torro winery!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ian Thank you very much for your great comments and you can see I love my job. Muchas Gracias Leonardo
Ruijin QiUnited States
We had a private tour with Leo to tour Valparaiso and Vina del Mar last December. We also toured Casablanca Winery and had lunch there. It was a wonderful tour. Leo was an excellent tour guide who has a warm personality. He is fun and very motivated. Further, Leo is a good photographer. Everywhere we went, he would not only help us take nice group pictures, but also teach us photography techniques such as finding the best view and framing the best picture. It was an unforgettable experience for all of us.
Kurt WollenhauptUnited States
Outstanding day with Leo in beautiful Chilean wine country. Like the Napa Valley 20 years ago. Genuine people living the wine life. Leo customized the day to fit our interests. Just a perfect day in sunny Chile.

Lorretta S.United States
Leo was a fabulous guide for one of our tours while we were in Santiago. He took us to see the penguins near Zapallar and then decided to extend our trip to Valparaiso. He was knowledgeable and a lot of fun to be with. His affinity for plants and his overall personality made the trip exceptional. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lorretta Thank you very much and I glad you and your husband feel much better and I did my best , Big Huge , I hope you came back to Chile again in the future Thank you very much Leo
Judith HodgsonUnited Kingdom
Leo was right in time to meet us at our hotel and was friendly and welcoming. We had arranged a tour for Monday not realising that all the museums are closed so worth knowing if you want to visit any. Leo is very knowledgeable about his country's fascinating history but is equally happy to talk about more recent events. He took us to some super areas around the city that we will visit again ourselves. A great guide!!
Sally HarrisonUnited States
Leo was so friendly and knowledgeable. He loved sharing his love for Santiago. Lots of fun to be with.
Phyllis Van WanseeleUnited States
Santiago came alive through our gracious host who not only knew the city very well but also gave me free camera shot advice. Leo was very accommodating to our schedule and helpful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Phyllis Thank you very much for your great review and I thing you need to be back to Chile again and visit South of Chile , Puerto Montt , Puerto Varas and Frutillar and do the lake crossing to Argentina is beautiful trip A big huge Leo
Stephen F.United Kingdom
Leo is a force of nature. His indestructible cheerfulness and enthusiasm for the scenery is hard to resist. Touring feels a bit like hanging out with him while he visits his favourite places and countless friends. At the same time, he is very professional and everything ran very smoothly. He prompted us to include Valparaiso in our tour, which we hadn't booked, but was an excellent idea.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow .. I talk to him about and sorry for his comments Leo

Michael DeahlUnited States
This was a unique tour, getting to see real penguins, and a truly enjoyable day getting out of the city of Santiago and exploring a different landscape. Leo was knowledgeable about the region, and obviously cared that we had a good experience. He provided snacks and water, the car had wi-fi, and he took us to both a cute local coffee shop for a break, and restaurant for lunch. In both places, he helped us order, so a language barrier wasn't a problem. Leo is also a photographer, which was nice!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow ..Thank you very much for your great review and I love the nature and my job too and I love to share this place they are not full of tourist ..! Thank you very much and big huge Leo
The tour gave me a general view of Santiago which was my expectation due to the short time I had. Leonardo was helpfull and fully answered my questions. Next time I go to Santiago I will be able to organize myself better and do it by myself. The tour showed me that Santiago merits a longer visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Henriqueta Thank you very much for your review and you are totally right , Santiago is a lot to see , but we need more time to explore a lot more I hope see your next visit and you have more time Leo
It was a pleasure to be guided for our first time exploration of Santiago. Leonardo was just delightful in sharing his knowledge of such a great city; in a very casual and relaxed manner; very thorough in passing information and the tour of the city was brilliantly passed. Thanks Leonardo for your fruitful guidance in such an interesting city. Lisa & Dani
Leanardo and his driver did an outstanding job for us on the tour of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar. They showed the places we wanted to see and took us to an outstanding location for lunch. We had been on an airplane all night and were exhausted. They were understanding in every way to learn as much as they could about Chile and the two locations we had on the schedule to visit. We got back to our hotel on time for our meeting. I was delighted with this tour. Great job!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello John Thank you very much for your great comments and I am super happy you had a excellent tour and experience in Santiago , Chile when you you book a tour with Tours by Locals and me I hope see you again Leonardo C.

This tour was a highlight !! Leo was absolutely amazing ! we went on holiday for a Month, and went on many tours...but this was the best of them all !! He was so informative, and very passionate about his country, and what he does. He went out of his way many times, to show us what we wanted to see, driving and stopping at many different locations for us !I would highly recommend Leo, and this tour ....and if we make it back, we will be booking him in again !! Thanks so much Leo...from the Avocado kiwi
Colleen CallaghanUnited States
Leo was amazing. Could not have asked for a better guide. I ended up being very sick on the tour and he was so accommodating and helpful. Could not recommend enough. He was flexible but at the same time the tour was well planned. His car is very nice and spacious and his English is fantastic.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Collen I hope you feel much better and I try to do my best and thank you very much for your comments...! Un Abrazo y un Beso Grande Leonardo

Enjoyable trip to the wine country and Valparaiso. We had a delicious lunch at the winery, and Leonardo helped us troubleshoot a problem with our luggage. I highly recommend his trips.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Patricia Thank you very much for your comments and I hope you are having a lot fun and good time in Chilean Patagonia Un Abrazo Leonardo
We had a great tour with Leo. He was a very good guide and a lovely person. We went along the coast from San Antonio to Valparaiso. We went on a walking tour of Valparaiso including a trip on one of the old funiculars. Leo was very informative about Chile and was also very good company. We also had a very nice stop at a winery. It was a very enjoyable day. The only downside was the shortness of our trip and this was due to the cruise ships altered schedule. We would love to have had longer.
Mark CoverUnited States
Leonardo was wonderfully professional and excellent Dosen. He had every point of interest timed perfectly I could not have experienced the high points of this region without his help I would highly recommend this guide. Exquisite in every way

Carolyn DombrowskiUnited States
A 10 hour tour could be dull, but not with Leonardo. He was waiting for us at the pier (even that we were early). He was both knowledgeable & delightful. He personalized our tour & we enjoyed every minute of it. If we are ever back in Santiago we would love to tour with him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carolyn and Family Thank you very much for your comments and like you notice I love my job and I will be here If you and your family decide to be back to Santiago, Chile Thank you very much Leo Cuzmar
Joan SchachtUnited States
Once again Leo did not disappoint. We traveled away from the main tour groups to a destination that offered fabulous views. We stopped at an old mining camp and Leo gave us insights into the life people lived there. We traveled further and had a surprise picnic within view of the volcano. He offered a spread of Chilean foods and wines, including freshly fire-oven baked empanadas. Truly a memorable day.
Joan SchachtUnited States
Our second day with Leo & it was great once again. We visited the lovely Viu Manent Winery & had a great informative tour. After informing Leo of our bad luck with closed museums in Santiago, he offered to change our itinerary for a visit to the Colchagua Museum in Santa Cruz. What a fantastic museum & exactly what we were looking for. Leo then took us to eat at lovely restaurant in another winery. He speaks excellent English, drives well, on time & is filled with information & is flexible as you see.
Joan SchachtUnited States
Leo is an excellent guide. His English is first-rate. His knowledge of Chile and his on-going narration of sites and local history along the tour are only surpassed by his enthusiasm. He was willing to stop along the way for photos and unexpected sight such as local cowboys training their horses for a rodeo. We highly recommend Leo
Excellent guide- friendly and exuberant.
Susan DathwestonNew Zealand
A tour is only as good as your guide and if you choose Leonardo then you are guaranteed a great time. Leo is punctual, friendly and flexible with a wealth of knowledge to share. We took the tour to Penguin Island and were not dissapointed. Sensational spot and great for wildlife photographers. It seemed as though there were no other tourists, just locals which was great. Leo then took us to a great beachfront cafe for lunch, which was again wonderful. Whatever you do in Santiago, contact Leo
Dan DziuraUnited States
Leo was amazing. He knew a lot about all of the areas we drove through and was super flexible about what we wanted to do. We stopped at a great Winery in Casablanca and had a wine tasting. Then he took us to lunch at a nice local restaurant, where he introduced us to the staff and together we tried different foods. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and friendly. He was very excited to share the local culture with us. We highly recommend touring with Leo!
Lomberto PerezUnited States
Leo was excellent. He demonstrated deep knowledge of the history of Chile. He was very courteous and personable. He was also very flexible with our needs. Leo has a extremely positive attitude that radiate confidence. I would definitely contract him again whenever we go back to Chile.
James GeibelUnited States
The Aconcagua tour is a great day trip from Santiago and totally worth it. One shouldn't believe all those horror stories about the border crossing on the Internet. Leo was a great guide with a deep knowledge of his home. He was open for everything we suggested and made ideal suggestions himself, too.
Thomas MehlerUnited States
The tour was excellent. Leo is a very knowledgeable and experienced guide. My wife was sick and therefore did the tour by myself. We ended up finishing earlier at the first winery (Montes). Leo convinced the security guard at Lapostolle to let us enter at noon, even though our tour was scheduled at 4pm. That allowed me to go on a 12:30 tour. Then stopped at a beautiful family winery for lunch and some more wine tasting. Leo makes everybody feel comfortable and relaxed. Thank you for a great experience
Joan YuHong Kong
Leo was fun, knowledgeable and well planned out with attention to details. Would love to do another tour with him if we had a chance!
Kim MonsalveUnited States
Leo is amazing! I would highly recommend his tour to Viña del Mar. He shows you all the attractions and makes informative and fun, including a stop for ice cream by the beach.
Debra C.United States
We can't say enough about Leo. His transportation was 5 stars, he was fun, informative, interesting, and great sense of humor. The route he took from the port to Santiago, wad beautiful! He arranged to stop along the way at a wonderful local restaurant for lunch. Divine!! He found an artist's street fair for us to walk through and some specialty shops that tourists wouldn't normally go to. The entire trip/ tour was perfect. Ask for Leo if you want the best tour. We just can't say enough about him!
Leo was fantastic and very accommodating. After a very long flight most of us fell asleep in the car and Leo drove around pointing out the most interesting places for my husband (who was awake)! Would recommend Leo and his tour - I hope to be able to finish it next time!
On time, good car, safe driver, friendly, willing to talk, answering questions, explaining, teaching. ...The winetasting was great ( winery factory tour could have been skipped for us, tasting was more than enough), walking tour in Valparaiso was lovely and could have been longer for us. We highly recommend Leo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Anne - Marie Thank you for the review and I think you should tell me before or same day you want only wine tasting and to have more time for walk in Valparaiso and also I should let you know we had limited time for long lunch ...sorry for that next time I will be carefull Leo
Susan AshtonSt. Helens, MERSEYSIDE, United Kingdom
We had an absolutely superb day with Leo! I cannot recommend him highly enough. He was pleasant, informative, fun; and did everything possible to make our day as enjoyable as it could be. He listened to what we wanted to see and do, and gave us enough time to take all our photos, even stopping without us asking when he considered there was a good photo location. We saw so much with Leo; but maybe the highlight of the day was stopping at his favourite cakeshop and trying the variety of cakes he suggested!
Ira S.United States
Leo picked us up on time. It was a Sunday things were very quiet on the roads. We got lucky and showed up just in time to see the changing of the guards. Leo got us a front row view of the parade. We then did a walking tour of downtown. it was hot so we did things quicker then we might have liked and Leo did his best to give us a history lesson. Then it was off to the newer part of the city with a car tour. Finally a lunch in a local restaurant. Dissapointed in we ended at 3 and didnt see Christobal hill
Peter SchosbergUnited States
Leo C is one of the best, if not the best guides I've had having traveled all over the world. He is friendly, interesting, extremely knowledgeable, and has a true passion for his work. He gave us exactly the kind of tour we wanted, experienced all we hoped for, and was a pleasure to be with for our day tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peter Thank you very much for your comments and I love my job and enjoy very much show my Country and the real life also be friendly is part of my personality and the life is very more easy to everyone I meet. You are very welcome to come back to Chile many times you want, you will know your friend Leo will be here Thank you very much and enjoy the life and a big huge Leo Cuzmar
Howard BergerUnited States
Tour was great. Leonardo gave us a educated and informative briefing of the city and country. Although we started with a miscommunication of not picking us up at airport as scheduled, he more than made up for it with his professionalism.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Howard Thank you very much and my apologies for not meet you at the Airport as we agree before and after that situation we had a excellent day in the City Tour of Santiago and the typical places where the Chileans know Thank you very much Leo Cuzmar
Peter RogersSouth Africa
Our guides were great. Patient, clear, informative and enthusiastic. Plenty of local knowledge which was clearly explained. A palpable sense of pride for the lovely city of Santiago and its history. In addition, my husband walks with a stick and this was at all times accommodated. We felt safe and enjoyed ourselves. Thank you to all involved.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Thank you very much for your great review and the idea was to you and your husband enjoy the city tour is the best way without any limitation Thank you very very much and have a great day
Leo was always on time knowledgeable & courteous.
Patricia ParsonsToronto, ON, Canada
We spent three days touring with Leo in addition to him dropping us at the airport for our flight home.From the moment he met us at the cruise terminal in Valparaiso, through his city tours of Valparaiso and Santiago with wonderful touring int he countryside in between, we enjoyed every minute of our time with this knowledgeable and passionate guide. Leo took us places that no other tourists would ever find. You should see the shots of the Andes we were able to get! Thanks so much Tours-by-Locals.

This was a very scenic tour made even better by a wonderful tour guide. Our guide Leo provided for every detail and was both extremely personable and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful day and left with a new friend. I would definitely take this tour again and highly recommend this guide!
Ross LittleUnited Kingdom
Great tour with Leo. Transfers were comfortable and punctual. Leo was friendly, his tour of Valparaiso informative, and wherever possible he went above and beyond (ensuring that we were safely checked in to our Santiago hostel). Would highly recommend.
MIchael DruryUnited Kingdom
Leonardo a truly excellent guide with deep knowledge and love of Chile which comes over in his approach - informative and engaging: he is happy to discuss anything. Efficient, flexible (we sensibly had more time in Valparaiso (fantastic!) and dropped Viña del Mar. Good advice too about leaving valuables in hotel led to "El Classico" bird poo attempted. robbery leading to only a change of clothes and shower and nothing more serious. Airport pick up on day and after tour on time and efficient. Brilliant!
Genevieve MorelandUnited States
The penguins were amazing and Leo is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. Highly recommended!
Leonardo is a top guide, a true professional with a sense of humour. He gave us an overview of Santiago, a Valparaiso experience and a drive through Viña Del Mar to a wonderful local restaurant literally on the side of the sea, plus a visit to a winery. He had great local knowledge and obviously loves providing individualised tours. We thoroughly recommend him!

Brian D.University Park, MDM, United States
By Marcela G: Leonardo was wonderful! Our stay in Santiago was so short and we had a project to work on, so it was somewhat of a tense morning, considering our original guide had an emergency. But Leonardo came and saved the day! He came early and said he would be replacing our previous guide. I really enjoyed his personality and the positive vibe he held during our walks along Santiago. He took us to great locations to shoot, and afterwards to a beautiful thematic seafood restaurant. Thank you Leo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marcela Thank you for your review and I told you we will be the best team and have a excellent day with your Art Project ..Thank you for trust in Tours by Locals and the Tour Guide Un Abrazo y Un Beso Leo Cuzmar

Loved the tour. Leonardo was great guide very informative and friendly
Professional and very friendly guide. I enjoyed the tour very much!
Andrew RivinusCanby, OR, United States
I was beginning to question my decision as the initial drive is a little long. But when you get to the island, Penguins were abundant along with pelicans, and other birds. The coastline is just beautiful and the walk easy. The lunch spot is just excellent in food quality and flavor. Eat outside if the weather allows. On the way back there will be some napping and digesting.
Stewart LusskyUnited States
Leonardo was very knowledgable, interesting, and wonderful with my 12 year old son, doing a great job of making the tour fun for our 3 generational family. I would recommend him highly.

Ed L.United States
Leo took us on a wonderful and welcomed change of pace day into the Andes. The scenery was amazing. We made numerous stops for photographs and explanations of the environment. The comfortable drive itself showed us much more of Chile than simply a city tour. Our party of 4 had a great day and especially enjoyed our stop for lunch. This day was our last before returning to North America. It was the perfect ending to complete our South American vacation.
Ed L.United States
Wonderful, comfortable trip for our party of 4 adults from our Valpo hotel to one in Santiago. Leo made it a very pleasant site seeing transfer including a marvelous lunch at the Casas del Bosque winery. Upon our arrival in Santiago we leisurely strolled the city center as Leo explained the significance of the structures and their associated history. Leo was more than simply a guide. He was an enthusiastic conveyor of information about the peoples and culture of Chile. We had a great afternoon.
Leo is a terrific guide, one of the best we have ever had; knowledgeable, personable and accommodating to our every need. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of Chilean life, culture and history. We only wish we had the time more for another tour. We will definitely tell our friends about his comprehensive tour!
Leo was wonderful. He spoke fluent English and was great fun. We are a party of 8 and we agreed that his happy demeanor set the tone of the tour. We learned a lot and laughed a lot: we would highly recommend Leo.

Kevin CarruthersUnited Kingdom
We booked a transfer from Valparaiso to Santiago but with Leonardo it became far more than that. After nearly a four hour delay, getting our luggage off our cruise ship, Leonardo waited for us and was just what we needed after the luggage problems. His wit and happy personality helped us soon forget our issues with the luggage. The transfer became more of a guided tour of the area and a stop off at a lovely winery for lunch made for a perfect day after such a bad start. Thank you Leonardo
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kevin Thank you for your comments and that was the idea to forget the bad time with the luggage..soon I meet you from that minute its will be different for good and we made a new day and start is excellent way Thank you and a big huge Leo Cuzmar
Donna AkiyamaUnited States
Fantastic tour! Leo is one of the greats; he is informative, interesting and so friendly and fun that we both felt like we'd known him for a long time. The area we went to - Maipo Valley - was beautiful and the mountain ranges spectacular. We were able to experience a local restaurant with wonderful food and even nicer people which was the highlight of our trip. I would recommend this trip highly especially with Leo -- he really made the trip something very personal and special!

Leo is an excellent tour guide. Our transfer from our Santiago hotel to our Valparaiso hotel was not just the transfer for which we paid, it was an excellent tour. Leo puts himself in our shoes and treats his guests as he would want to be treated. He speaks several languages and his command of English is excellent. His vehicle is nearly new and very comfortable for 4 persons and their luggage.

We had a 12 hour layover in Santiago on our way back to the states and booked Leo for a tour of the city. The enthusiasm of Leo and his knowledge of the city made the tour a great time and a great experience. We highly recommend Leo to anyone who wants a great tour. This was also our first experience with Tours by Locals and we were not disappointed.
Nancy RoweUnited States
If it were possible, we would give Leonardo 8 stars! Santiago and the surrounding sites came alive when he talked about them. He showed all aspects of the city, including old and modern, wealthy and poor neighborhoods, parks etc.. His wide range of interests pervade the tour, and he makes us feel as though we are his own friends that he is sharing his interests with. LC is the best guide we have had thus far.....
Nancy RoweUnited States
What a dynamo Leo proved to be! His zest for providing maximum satisfaction to his clients makes the tour enlightening and enjoyable. He shares his favorite vistas and people with us and made us feel like our pleasure was foremost in his agenda. Leo is the best tour guide we have encountered to date.
Stephen MachizUnited States
Leo was a treat. His passion for his country shines through. He is a great embassador for Chile. His tour is very personalized and informative. He takes you where the locals go. His English Is excellent and he is an excellent communicator. We had a great day in Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso. Thank you Leo.
Steve LichtUnited States
Leonardo was on time at the Santiago Airport. He was right where he said he would be. Leo was personable, knowledgeable about the area, friendly & accommodating. His driver was very friendly and did an excellent job getting us around. One of Leo's specialties was getting us to special areas where we could take memorable pictures, which he helped us to create. His lunch spot at a winery was outstanding. Although pricey, the food and ambiance was worth it. Highly recommend Leo & the huge Mercedes Van.

Leo was fantastic, we were a group of 3 adults and 3 children ( aged 11, 10 and 8) , he was so accommodating to our girls , which made our day so much easier. His knowledge of the areas was fantastic , we certainly would not have seen anywhere near the amount of places in Valparaiso without him. ( amazing place great cultures) He is a photography buff so he took great photos of us all, which was great as we were all in the photos. True keepsakes of an amazing day with Leo. I would highly recommend Leo.
