La Joya del Pacifico
Valparaiso, Chile's oldest and one of the two most important sea ports. Declared World Heritage City by UNESCO. This is a very impressive and scenic port, overlooking the Pacific Ocean from most of its colourful houses and magic neighbourhoods, where its cosmopolitan citizens and all kinds of artists living here, provide the port with a unique flavour and character.
United to Valparaiso, is Viña del Mar; Chile's most popular summer resort city, with its modern architecture, lovely gardens and beautiful beaches; making it a very attractive city to visit and relax on your holidays. Finally Chile's one of the three most popular export products is wine. Well-known all around the world, due to its special bouquets, gentle and smooth flavours and its unique skill: no "Philoxera" disease in the vineyards, making of wine a Chilean icon product.
First, we begin with a tour of Valparaiso; visiting its down-town (El Plano) and driving through its Nineteenth Century outstanding buildings, after that we drive up the colourful hills' neighbourhoods, where you will enjoy the real flavour and magic of "La Joya del Pacifico" (Valparaiso's nickname). After that, we go to Viña del Mar, Chile's newest and most popular summer resort city, also known around the hole country as "La Ciudad Jardin" (Garden City), due to its colourful and wonderful flowers everywhere, all year round. Here we visit the tourist boulevard: Avenida Peru and go through the Casino de Juegos (Chile's oldest and most popular Gambling Casino) to get to the lovely Pacific Ocean view of the city popular beaches.

Our tour with Victor was a highlight of our South American adventure. He is very knowledgable and professional and has outstanding people skills. Victor adapted the tour to meet our needs for our short stay in Valparaiso. All communication was timely and pertinent. Would highly recommend a tour with Victor!
