We prepared. The Chilean breakfast is a must for those wanting to understand the country. The hike is not too hard and Leoncio paced it well. His preparation was excellent. We asked him loads of questions over today's and found him informative but more importantly friendly with a great sense of humour ..... many thank from the Ryan's and Seals

We had a lovely day with Leo and his driver. A very well thought out tour. We enjoyed the walking , flexibility, funiculars, vistas, explanations and shopping. A colorful city with decorative murals. Stopping in Vina del mar for lunch was great. Upscale beach community. Delicious lunch. I had the seafood combo which was thick with cheese. My wide had the crab pie. Yummy. Thank you very much.

Date: Feb 11/20

We had a wonderful tour of the Casablanca Valley wine area with Leoncio. Leo is very personable and had interesting insights and information to share throughout the day. We had an early start and even had time to visit the house where Pablo Neruda lived the final years of his life. The wineries Leo took us to were doing some cutting edge experimentation and that made the visits all the more enjoyable. The day was capped off with lunch at a local empanada place that was excellent. Thanks Leo!

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Tour bei den Pinguinen. Eine schöne Zeit in der Natur. Das Essen am Strandt war besonders lecker. Die Übernachtung in den Anden und der besuch der Anden am nächsten Tag waren für uns ein besonderes Erlebnis. Leoncio ist ein sehr netter Guide. Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to have you here for two days.....I really enjoyed your nice family. God bless you all. Sincerely Leoncio!!

Leo picked us up from our ship and took us on a tour of San Antonio, Valparaiso, Vita del Mar and then to our hotel in Santiago.The tour of Valparaiso included a ride on a funicular, a comprehensive tour of the city and a stop at a little artist gallery. In Vita del Mar we stopped at the Fonck Museum as well as toured the city. On our way to Santiago we stopped at a country rest stop and enjoyed delicious empanadas. My only disappointment is the 2 of us were picked up in a 10 person van rather than a car

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thank you your advise Dear Rosemary. God bless you!!

Leo was absolutely awesome. Our cruise ship was supposed to arrive in Santiago, Chile but the port was closed due to high sea swells and we had to be diverted to Valparaiso. This was a last minute change the morning of our tour and Leo made the change quickly. He gave us an awesome tour and took us to a local restaurant for a nice taste of Chilean food. I highly recommend him - he has a great personality and is very knowledgeable about his country. We all loved him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Margaret, it was a pleasure to have you here. All the best for you. Kindest Regards.

Leo is a very good guide with good command of English language. He is caring, flexible and a careful driver. The coast is beautiful, but if you are from Northen California it looks almost identical. Penguins were highlight of the trip, costal villagers were not interesting.

Date: Jul 6/19

We had four fantastic days with Leoncio and his son Matias, who are both incredibly welcoming and hugely knowledgeable. Leoncio created a special, and very diverse, four-day tour for us, showing us the authentic Chile. He arranged all aspects of the trip; activities, accommodation, meals - even a delicious lunch prepared by the sweetest elderly couple in their countryside home. Leoncio made our tour unique, and many of our experiences would simply not have been possible without him. 10 out of 5 stars!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We really enjoyed those days with you. Thank you for coming !! God bless you!!

Great tour and great guide. Leo was right on time and took us on a fantastic tour of Santiago then drove us to Valpariso. On the way Leo suggested a local restaurant for lunch which was fantastic. We arrived in Valpariso and went on a walking tour. Leo is so friendly and very happy to share his knowledge. We had an amazing day and highly recommend him for anyone visiting Santiago.

We had a great day with Leoncio with an itinerary exactly what we had hoped for. It was a little foggy on arrival so unfortunately we missed some of the nice views from the town. Unfortunately, it was a Sunday so one of the small wineries we were going to go to was closed. We really enjoyed the visits to the wineries and had extra time so we could enjoy a local BBQ lunch which was quite amazing. We had more than enough space in the clean vehicle/bus and made it to the airport perfectly on time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dear Scott, have a good year with your wife,God bless you.

Excellent tour with Leo and his son, Matias. Both are so warm, kind, helpful, personable and so knowledgeable of Andes Mountains. Truly appreciated their sense of humour. Never a dull moment for this trip. Full of jokes and laughter! To top things off, Leo provided us with a beautiful spread of treats like cheese, salami, Chilean wine, soft drinks and much more after a nice hike to the Bridal's veil waterfall. Hate to say good bye when they dropped us off to our Hotel. Thank you Leo and Matias.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys!! We really enjoyed that day with all of you,God bless you all.

Leoncio (Leo) was the best tour guide I have ever had the honor of traveling with. Over a ten year period of time on multiple privately arranged tours, Leo is the best. He picked up 10 of us at the airport, took us to our hotel, picked us up the next day and gave us a wonderful tour of Santiago and up into the Andes Mountains. The following day he guided us through the farming areas of Chile on our way to the port. He spoke very good English and was very pleasant. I recommend him highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dean, You and your group of travelers where wonderful people too,it was a pleasure to work for you,God bless you all !! Sincerely Leo.

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.

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!
