We took a tour to Valparaiso and Viña del Mar with Hugo, and also were able to add a visit to Casas del Bosque in Casablanca valley, one of the top wineries in this area. Hugo has a LOT of experience and was extremely knowledgeable. He took us on a walk in Valparaiso, we had the freedom to stop, drink a coffee within the beauty of this place streets.... an unique and relaxing experience. I recommend to Valparaiso to everyone visiting Santiago, this was definitely our trip highlight.
