We signed up for Leoncio's tour from Santiago to Valparaíso as we were boarding a ship that day. Leoncio was waiting at our hotel in a very nice van. We had a great time during the drive hearing wonderful stories about Chile. We arrived at port just at the right time. Excellent service.

Date: Feb 18/19

Leoncio was a very congenial and knowledgable guide! His tour to the Casablanca wineries was scrumptious, went to two wineries and had a delicious lunch at the second one. He explained the history of wineries in Chile and there were plenty of delicious options for tasting at each winery. The pickup and dropoff at the downtown Santiago hotel was very easy, and the tour had a relaxing pace. It was easy to communicate with the wine tasting guides to get recommendations and information about the wine.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dear Catherine!! God bless you!!

We had a fabulous 3 days with Leo and his son Matias. They are both wonderful people, friendly, and professional. We enjoyed touring Valporaiso, Vina del Mar, and a bit of Santiago on our transfer tour from the cruise ship to our hotel, along with a city tour, and Andes tour. They are very passionate about their home and share lots of great information about its history and people. They both have an excellent command of English. We were sad to leave and head home, but hope to return some day!

Leoncio was wonderful!! He and his son were with our group of 8. They were there to meet us at the cruiseport and were more than willing to personalize the tour. Leoncio's English was PERFECT!! The Sprinter was extremely comfortable and they provided bottled water to all of us. We were all extremely pleased that we chose Leoncio and he not only took some of us to the airport on time, he also dropped others at 2 hotels. We saw the sights that we wanted to and he explained everything.

From the time Leoncio picked us up in Santiago until dropping us back at the airport two days later, everything went smoothly. The wineries he picked out for us were interesting as was lunch at a "typical" roadside restaurant. We had heard of a winery called Koyle and it turned out to be next to one we were visiting. Leoncio snuck us in and we got a private tour even though they were closed technically. Also his suggestion to stay overnight in Santa Cruz was spot on. Thanks so much Leoncio!

Leoncio took the four of us on an amazing adventure into the Andes foothills. He was punctual, very professional and very knowledgeable. We were very impressed by the tour itinerary, and were very fortunate to have amazing weather on the day. A highlight of the tour was when we stopped to take the snack he had prepared, which we enjoyed with a truly spectacular backdrop of the Andes. I highly recommend Leoncio and this particular tour if you want to get a taste of what the Andes is all about!

The tour of the city and the ride into the Andes were wonderful.

He maximized our time with good planning, as I wanted to visit two homes of Pablo Neruda (Isla Negra and La Sebastian), the highlights of Valparaiso and end up in Santiago. With the driver we were able to use our time efficiently. He shares the history of Neruda, including his untimely death, and even recites beautiful poems of Neruda ("Tonight I can write the saddest lines")! Muchisimas gracias.

We want to thank Leo for a fabulous beginning to our South American Adventure. We had a very relaxed and fun day from our pick up at the airport in Santiago to a delicious dinner in Valparaiso. He was very informative and let us chose the things we wanted to do at our own pace. He was very helpful in making connections for us to make our way to the passenger terminal for our cruise the next day. He felt like a friend that we had known for longer than the day. We definitely would recommend him to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your visit to Chile God bless you.

Leoncio was fabulous. He is knowledgeable and truly enjoys showing off Valparaiso, especially the street art. He listened to what we said was important for us to see, and he customized the tour to allow us to do just that. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. He took us to a restaurant with a view high above the city and to some interesting shops. I highly recommend Leo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your visit to Chile God bless you.

Our tour by Leoncio was terrific! We could not have asked for a better tour. He was very professional, prompt to pick us up, very knowledgable of both the areas we toured and also gave us the history of both Country and individual places. He had a cooler full of "goodies" for us in case we were thirsty or hungry. We highly recommend the tour but especially our guide Leoncio!

Leonico was just great! First our flight was delayed, and he waited for us at the airport. Second, it is so clear that he loves his city, Santiago, and that always makes the tour better when there is an emotional connection. I didn't know what I wanted to see when I signed up for it, but when it ended I felt like I had really seen the city, gotten a feel for it, saw the best parts of it and the authentic parts of the city too. I was very impressed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was nice to meet you Dear Colleen,all the best for you,have a good year.

Expected much.Expectations exceeded.Leoncio:consummate host,flexible,very knowledgeable about the area & communicates exceptionally well in English.More importantly,we could relate to him and he to us.No "cultural-barrier" impeding understanding of the nuance of our questions or his thoughtful,insightful,& honest answers. Our safety was always a consideration to him as was ensuring our belongings were not stolen by opportunistic "bad boys" who are especially active on "cruise ship days".Highly recommended

Sunday in Valparaiso was an interesting day because of Leoncio's carefully chosen sites for us. An impromptu stop a neighborhood church was view of local life. The ride on a newly renovated funicular was high on my bucket list and I was not disappointed.The brightly painted buildings and tasteful graffiti brightened the day. Lunch in Vina del Mar at Pomairinos, among the locals, enabled the four of us to get a real feel for the area. The view from Renaca was a photographer's delight. Leoncio is a true pro

We had a nine hour layover in Santiago, Chile our first time in the country. We went on line to see if we could book a 5 hour tour--we did and it proved excellent! In the short time available Leoncio, our tour guide provided us with an outstanding experience. He knew the history, his way through the traffic, picked a few wonderful sights to visit--the Human Rights Memorial, city square, a beautiful cathedral, historical train station and a wonderful seafood restaurant for dinner.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your visit dear Kenneth Gile,I wish you a safe journey home God Bless you Always.

We had a wonderful time touring the hills of Valparaiso, up the coast through Vinca del Mar and on trip to Santiago. The lunch was delicious and the atmosphere typically Chilean. The tour around Santiago to visit several sites we had missed the previous week was equally interesting and informative. Leoncio was knowledgeable and accommodating. I would recommend him to anyone. Safe driver and extremely knowledgeable of the history and future expansion plans for the cities.

Leo was everything one could want in a guide and more! In the booking process, we changed the number of guests a number of times and he was patient and helpful every time. Pickup was on time and efficient, even though we needed to stop three different places to collet our entire party. His narration enroute was outstanding. He even gave us great local restaurant advice for the night before our tour and made the reservation for us at the restaurant. First rate in every way!

We highly recommend Leo to anyone who wants a tour of Valparaiso/Santiago. He met the four of us at the cruise ship terminal and, with some difficulty, squeezed our luggage into his van. Over the next 10 hours, he showed us the most interesting sights in both cities, took us to a winery, and arranged for an excellent lunch at an authentic Chilean restaurant on the way to Santiago. His command of English is excellent, as is his sense of humor and knowledge.

Our day long transfer from Santiago Airport to our ship in Valparaiso was excellent. Leoncio was an excellent guide/driver with a great deal of local knowledge. He met the three of us as we exited customs and was willing to work with us to enhance the experience with a highlights tour of Santiago, followed by a wine tasting, lunch at a typical small town restaurant and the scenic drive on the coastal road through Vina del Mar and Valpariaso ending at the Cruise Terminal. We highly recommend Leoncio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dear Joel,all the best for you and your family.Merry Christmas.
