Leo is a force of nature. His indestructible cheerfulness and enthusiasm for the scenery is hard to resist. Touring feels a bit like hanging out with him while he visits his favourite places and countless friends. At the same time, he is very professional and everything ran very smoothly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great comment and I love very much what I do A Big Huge Leo

A wonderful day

Once again Leo did not disappoint. We traveled away from the main tour groups to a destination that offered fabulous views. We stopped at an old mining camp and Leo gave us insights into the life people lived there. We traveled further and had a surprise picnic within view of the volcano. He offered a spread of Chilean foods and wines, including freshly fire-oven baked empanadas. Truly a memorable day.

This was a very scenic tour made even better by a wonderful tour guide. Our guide Leo provided for every detail and was both extremely personable and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful day and left with a new friend. I would definitely take this tour again and highly recommend this guide!
Professional and very friendly guide. I enjoyed the tour very much!

My day hike in the Andes with Leo was very enjoyable.
Ed L.United States
Leo took us on a wonderful and welcomed change of pace day into the Andes. The scenery was amazing. We made numerous stops for photographs and explanations of the environment. The comfortable drive itself showed us much more of Chile than simply a city tour. Our party of 4 had a great day and especially enjoyed our stop for lunch. This day was our last before returning to North America. It was the perfect ending to complete our South American vacation.

Fantastic tour! Leo is one of the greats; he is informative, interesting and so friendly and fun that we both felt like we'd known him for a long time. The area we went to - Maipo Valley - was beautiful and the mountain ranges spectacular. We were able to experience a local restaurant with wonderful food and even nicer people which was the highlight of our trip. I would recommend this trip highly especially with Leo -- he really made the trip something very personal and special!

Leonard was an excellent guide. His English is quite good, he was very friendly and thoughtful. He is very knowledgeable about plants, birds, local geography and history. He is very appreciative of the beauty of nature. He even gave us some good tips on photography. The driver drove safely and they picked us up on time. The hike was the right level for us, not too easy, not too hard. The scenery was outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carl Lazarus Thank you for your great review and you notice I love what I do..! Leo
Great tour and a fantastic guide. We will certainly be looking for Leonardo's services when we next visit Santiago.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dawn Thank you for your comments and the Andes Mountain is a very special place and very close to Santiago was a fantastic day Please if you visit Santiago again I will be here..! Thank you Leo

Leo picked us up at our hotel right on time. We had a nice trip out into the mountains. We were a long way from the normal tourists--it was great. We stopped in lots of little places and walked around and saw many things we did not expect to see. A wonderful day.

Leo was fantastic. His English was wonderful, and he was incredibly knowledgeable, charming, patient, entertaining and an all-around great guy. His love for his Country is palpable, and he was sincerely concerned with our group of 8 having a great time. He welcomed spontaneous diversions and adventures and was very easy-going. He was extremely prompt in picking us up, but leisurely in getting us back at a specific time. Simply superb!

Barbara KrumpeUnited States
This tour was magnificent. Leonardo's knowledge and enthusiasm made it very special. As a photo enthusiast himself, he knew all the best places to take pictures. He was very considerate and helped my husband if any walking spots were difficult for him. A very tasty picnic lunch was included. Most importantly, Leonardo was a very safe driver as we made our way up to 9000 feet and back. We saw beautiful wild flowers, condors, falcons and even cows standing on a cliff.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mrs. Barbara Thank you for your comments and I glad you had a good time with the tour you book ...we made a excellent team and I learn a lot about photogafic with your husband Thank you Leo

Leo used his extensive local experience to provide us with a fabulous photo tour of the Andes. He went above and beyond expectations in accommodating our physical limitations, and he shared his knowledge of the natural environment to provide us with outstanding photo opportunities. For all his enthusiasm and support, Leo deserves six stars! Dick & Jane Groff (Feb. 2014)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mrs. Jane & Mr. Richard Thank you for your review and I had a great day guiding you at the Andes Mountain and thank you for book the tour with me Say Hello to Mrs. Jane Big Huge Leo
Gary DixUnited States
Leo was just great. Explained all and took great photos. I have two critiques 1) it should not be called a hike. Really it's a beautiful drive with a stroll at the top. 2) to pay for 2 sandwiches and a juice ( not knowing the content) is a poor choice considering there is a restaurant on top. You should be given the choice, and the guide should make reservations if desired. Since we would buy lunch for any guide, this would really improve the trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gary, I did my best, I drove slow and stopped in a few places so you could take photos and I could explain about the Andes, then we got to the trailhead where we started hiking and you didn't want to keep going but your wife did very well...I offered you snacks and I probably forgot to mention what was in the sandwich I apologize for that but you never mentioned anything about having lunch at the restaurant, you only mention the pork BBQ, but since that was a private event, we were not allowed to get in.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Issue was brought up to guide and his support manager and they are working on a strategy to avoid situations like the one mentioned above.
we had an awesome day with Leo, a very professional and knowledgeable guide. He took us to all the best vantage points in the Andes to take photos and then a hike to see a glacier that was amazing. He also makes the BEST sandwiches for your picnic. I would highly recommend booking through Tours By Locals and especially getting Leo as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jason Thank you for you book your Tour to the Andes Mountain and I am very happy you like it !! any time you came back to Chile or you can recommend us Thank you so much ..Leo
