Our daylong tour with Juan Carlos was really interesting. We had not been able to see either of these places during our 2012 trip to CHile, and Juan Carlos did them well with lots of details and sights/sites. He showed up early, just to give us confidence that we has coming. His car was immaculate and he himself was friendly, personable and knowledgeable. He continued my positive experiences with Tours by Locals wherever we have traveled.

We had such a great day exploring Santiago with Juan Carlos. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about sharing his city. He answered all of our questions and now we are schooled in Santiago history! At the end of our tour, he dropped us in an area that we would enjoy and recommended a fabulous restaurant. We would highly recommend this tour and hopefully you'll get Juan Carlos!!

From the get go Juan Carlos made us feel comfortable and relaxed. His company was a pleasure and he spoke excellent English. The car was spacious and very clean. We all enjoyed the tour, his suggested venue for dining was great value and the trip into the mountains just what we wanted. Cheers, Janelle, Jon, Lance and Andrew from Australia

Juan Carlos was a very responsible tour guide! Due to weather, our ship docked at a port 50 miles from our scheduled port. Juan Carlos knew about the change even before I was able to get a message to him and was already driving to meet us at the new port. He adapted our tour to meet our new arrival time and location. His English is very good. We felt very fortunate to have Juan Carlos with us, seeing the sights but knowing we would be at the airport in time for our flight.

Juan Carlos is an excellent tour guide! We visited a beautiful winery en route to Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso, and a nice local bakery. Vina Del Mar is a large ocean resort, and Valparaiso is an historical port city, with a very artistic flair. He is very informative and friendly. As a local, he knows the best ways to go, and the best places to go to make your tour memorable. We had a great time, thanks to Juan Carlos!

Juan Carlos was a wonderful guide, helping us to understand what the city of Santiago is all about, its history, development and current situation. In addition he clued us in on very local things, such as the delicious "Mote con huesillo" (a refreshing concoction made with husked wheat, dried peach in a sugar/cinnamon drink). We enjoyed our day with Juan Carlos and highly recommend him.

Juan Carlos spoke excellent English and provided good information during our all day tour of Santiago and Valparaiso. His car provided comfortable transportation for 2 couples plus our luggage, 4 large suitcases plus carry on. We enjoyed our tour and time spent with Juan Carlos.

Let me start by saying there were some positives to this tour. Juan Carlos was knowledgeable and the part of the tour that we accomplished was scenic. We were getting off a ship that day so things were chaotic and Juan Carlos was flexible as we tried to plan the day. I think the biggest issue was his time management skills and setting realistic expectations for the tour. So as it was we did not get to the winetasting and he got us to the airport later then requested. I would not use him again.

We had a wonderful afternoon with Juan Carlos. He was on time, showed us exactly the things we wanted to see and was very informative throughout the afternoon. We would seek out doing another tour with him if we had more days in Santiago.

Had the pleasure to be with Juan Carlos for 3 days from the pickup at the hectic Santiago Airport (nice to see our name and Juan Carlos after getting our bags) to Valparaíso and Vira Del Mar and on to the cruise ship at San Antonio. Having successfully used tours by locals in other countries, we would rank Juan Carlos as the best having a broad knowledge of Chilean history, geography, politics, wines, and exciting locations not frequented by tour buses. Thanks Juan Carlos

Juan Carlos gave my wife and I a six-hour private tour of Santiago. He was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all of our various questions. His pricing was reasonable and we found the tour to be an outstanding value. I would recommend that anyone interested in Santiago book a tour with Juan Carlos.

What a great guide! He was able to put together a custom tour that would accommodate our shortened time frame. He picked perfect wineries for us as well as a great local restaurant. His knowledge of the area and history of the wine region was impressive and added to the each stop. Would recommend booking a tour with Juan Carlos!

Today, we had a great time with Juan Carlos when visiting Vina del Mar and Valparaiso. He was kind and so knowledgeable not only about these two towns but also about Chile history and by extension South American history. He was on time at our meeting spot and his courtesy is amazing. I gladly and warmly recommend him to any person wanting to do a smart and enjoyable tour in Santiago, Valparaiso and Vina del Mar.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are awesome!! Very nice time shared altogether.... Those empanadas were epic!!! Thanks a lot... God bless you!!

A very informative and complete overview of Santiago. Juan Carlos has strong knowledge of the city, it's history and interesting facts. He was very adept in navigating the traffic and guiding us along safely during the walking portions. He was very attentive to make sure the activities matched interest. Organized, well timed and very personable guide. Highly recommend Juan Carlos!
