Claudio picked us up promptly at our ship and drove us immediately to Petrohue Falls. It was raining quite heavily and we were able to walk out to the falls and head back on the road which was beginning to flood over. Other groups from our ship with a later start were unable to get to the falls. Since Osorno Volcano was clouded over, we went to Puerto Varas for a lovely lunch and walk around town. A final stop at the municipal Puerto Montt vegetable and fish market was a perfect ending. Thanks Claudio!

Claudio was excellent, punctual, informative and fun. He meet us at the ship's port and delivered us right back. He communicated with us before arrival so we knew the plan. His English is clear and understandable. We were able to get out ahead of the buses and maneuver with ease. Claudio shared his knowledge freely. He has a great sense of humor. He arranged for lunch at local place and it was one of the best seafood meals we have eaten. It was a really nice shore excursion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sara!!....Despite the weather you were always very enthusiastic...what a wind we had at the volcano !! Say hello to Richard !!

We had a great day seeing a local food market, and then a trip to Frutillar, staying ahead of the tour buses. We would have liked more guidance and information at the Frutillar Museum (which was beautiful). We were taken to a very good restaurant for lunch, and were given plenty of free time to browse. Overall, very good time!

What a wonderful day our group of 5 seniors had with Claudio. Claudio's van was clean and comfortable and he was there to open our door and assist us getting into and out of the van. Claudio's English was excellent (his wife teaches English - so he has been a star student!!!). We saw so much pretty scenery and enjoyed the time we spent in Puerto Varas (wish we had more time but the ship won't wait on us). Thank you Claudio for a wonderful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Puline. Maybe you are seniors but with a youthful and healthy spirit, full of energy!! Say hello to te rest of your group Best wishes!! Claudio

Geoffrey DaileyUnited Kingdom
Our day with Claudio was the perfect combination of scenery, history and local life. Yet again the benefits of using a local guide bore dividends as we arrived at the museum ahead of the big tour buses, enjoyed a coffee break in an excellent quiet local cafe and arrived back at the ship before the main rush. My wife has mobility problems and Claudio was always at hand to help her whenever he was needed. Altogether a great day with a great guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Geoffrey!

In addition to the beautiful Fruitillar, Llanquihue and Puerto Varas, all of those places were beautiful and on our itinerary, Claudio started the day with a short tour of Puerto Montt and showed us a local market. That market was fantastic, the vendors were friendly and eager to show us their produce and ware. We had great fun with the vendors with Claudio serving as translator. Great communicator, very knowledgeable about fauna, flora, history, background, custom. I highly recommend Claudio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas Gracias Ben!!....Kind regards!!

Esther RubinUnited States
We had a great time with Claudio. He knows a lot about the area, and Chile in general. He is very personable, and it was fun to hang out with him. In addition to the standard stops, like amazing views of lake Llanquihue, Osorno Volcano, and the National Park Vicente Pérez Rosales, he took us to Puerto Varas, which is a very cute town to shop and have a snack. He gave us good recommendations for both! Highly recommended! Thank you, Claudio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Esther; I had a great time with you too and learning a lot about your culture and religion. So interesting!! Muchas gracias por visitarnos!!....un gran abrazo
Claudio fue super profesional y muy amable con nuestro grupo familiar de 18. Tuvimos muy buena suerte ya que aun cuando al llegar al puerto el clima parecía terrible, ya cerca de Frutillar se despejó totalmente y las vistas fueron asombrosas! Lástima que el barco sólo está muy pocas horas pues nos hubiera encantado poder ver mucho más! Gracias por el tour espectacular!!! Familia Castillo (Mx)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Ana! Entonces ya tienen una razon para volver!! Feliz de recibirlos de nuevo. Un gran abrazo a todos!!

We had an amazing day in Puerto Montt with Claudio - he is fabulous , extremely knowledgable and fun to be with. The weather in Puerto is extremely variable - one can experience 4 seasons in a day and Claudio kept a careful eye on the weather and planned our visit to the different attractions so as to ensure we got the best of all before the mist clouded everything A great day with a great person Book Claudio if you can
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bev !! I really apreciatte your words. Having Lunch with that nice talk was superb. Best wishes for you!!
