We were a group of 8 friends who booked a personalized tour with Andres. Andres and his driver Jorge provided us with a wonderful one day trip that included a visit to see the natural beauty of the area, a stop in one of the beautiful little towns, and ended with a tour of Puerto Montt. Andres' knowledge of the area provided some excellent insights. His friendly and helpful demeanour made this one of our favourite days on our trip. We highly recommend booking with Andres.

We had the best day with Andres! He was waiting for us when we arrived with a very comfortable car and bottled water. He sped us off to the Petrohue Falls to beat the tour buses and it worked. He then took us to all of the sites and told us about his home town of Puerto Varas. Andres recommended a delicious local restaurant which we loved. Andres is an excellent driver, tour guide and instagram photographer! Can't recommend him highly enough. Hope to be back to Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas again!

On 1/7/20, Andres took us (2 couples) for a wonderful tour of the Chilean Lake District and Orsono volcano. We were met and dropped off at the cruise terminal on time. His knowldge and aticulation of English made us feel comfortable to ask questions and engage him in dialogue. The van used was clean and spacious. Although much of the volcano was obscured by cloud cover, we drove up Orsono as far as we could, to gain a better feeling for it. We highly his services & would give him a 10, if we could.

Andres met us as we departed the cruise ship and we had a memorable tour and were blessed with clear skies to see this magnificent part of Chili.

Excellent tour of the Puerto Montt area by Andres. His vehicle was immaculate and comfortable. Andres was knowledgeable, friendly and interesting. He shared information about his region and about the cultures in the area with enthusiasm and we felt like we learned a lot about Chile from him. We enjoyed the local restaurant where he joined us for lunch and acted as translator. This was our first experience with Tours by Locals and we were very impressed.

We were very satisfied with the Market Tour that Andres provided for my husband, myself and our adult son. He was prompt in picking us up at the pier and conducted himself very professionally. Lunch was included and he even gave me some pesos in order to use the women’s bathroom. At the end, I mentioned that we would like to go to a department store in order to buy some socks for our son and he accommodated us with no problem. He did a fine job.

We had an incredible experience with our guide Andres. He was prompt, knowledgeable, easy going and very accommodating. His local insights provided for our maximum benefit. We hit many of the primary attractions within the Lake District- Puerto Montt market, Fruitillar, Puerto Varas, Osorno Volcano, Petrohue Falls, Lago Todos Los Santos. With each stop he shared history and current events. The natural beauty we experienced was beyond imagination and adding to this was our exceptional guide Andres.

We were very impressed with Andres! Our tender time in port was changed three times yet each time we notified him by email, Andres rolled with it. In the end, we had much less time in port that we had hoped, but he was flexible and we felt like we saw SO much in the time we ended up with. And he even took us to his favorite empanada place when we asked! We also felt like we learned a lot about chile!

Date: Feb 28/18

Andres gave us a lot of local information and details. However he did not come up with other things or a way to use our full allotted time. It was nice to see the area, but there is not a lot to do here in a six hour period as you cannot get into any significant hiking if interest is there and some of the national park features are easily seen elsewhere. We opted to see the towns and how people lived and worked in the area and that was interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Andrews. Thank you for your advice, I will take in mind, but city tours is not the best place to hiking, If you compare with the National Park. Different excursions, different experiences. Thank you for visit our country. Andres Tour Guide

Andres was a delightful guide with a very keen sense of humour! His communication skills are very good; he spoke of his personal experiences of living in the area in an entertaining manner. He took us to a viewpoint near the house where he was born and he covered many miles to ensure that we saw as much of the area as possible. Although we were some 90 minutes late meeting him at the port (ship's fault), he gave us the total amount of time paid for. He provided a snack too! He was great company.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Roland Jones. Thank you for your booking and feed back about my Job. I really apreciate your comments. I hope to see You again in Chile some day. Best regards, Andrés Tour Guide
