I went on a morning tour and our guide CJ was really good. He pointed out little details about the city and told stories about the history of Valparaiso. Helped us find our bearings in this charming city. Would definitely recommend this tour.More

I can recommend to do the offbeat Valparaiso Tour! Our Tour Guide Camillo did an amazing Job! I like the included use of public Transport as this is quite frightening for tourists at the beginning ;-)

It is not just a walking tour & you can see why it holds the number one tour position. The walking tour goes for about 3 hours. You do take two different bus rides during the walk, one that scoots quickly up the steep hills...More

Where exactly does the 3pm "Highlights" tour visit? The website is not very clear. I will be exploring the city myself earlier in the day and would prefer plan so I do not visit the same place twice.

We would like to go on the 3 pm tour on February 23 and the 10 am tour on the 24th. We speak English. Will both of those tours be available? Judy

As far as I know, the tours4tips are every day, rain or shine.
Are reservations needed for the tours or do we just show up? Also - can I arrange for transport from Santiago to Valparaiso and from Valparaiso to the airport through your agency?

No reservations. I'm a person that used the service. Getting to Valparaiso was very easy via bus from the central station area. I just showed up and bought a ticket and was on my way in about 10 minutes.
