My husband and I were travelling from Santiago to Valparaiso, and arranged a private tour with Thomas at Chile Private Tours that included visiting 2 small vineyards in the Casablanca valley. Julio was our first-rate driver and guide, and related a lot of interesting information about Chile and the area we were driving through. The first vineyard we stopped at... More

I booked with Thomas from Chile Private Tours for my colleagues and I for a full day excursion to Cajon Del Maipo. We were in Chile for our Canadian MBA program, and figured that since we were arriving early, it would be a great experience to see the mountains, natural springs, and artificial lake. Thomas was the only tour company... More

Our group of ten were promptly met at the cruise terminal with a tourist van having an attached trailer. All our luggage was put into the trailer. Plenty of room in the van. Our guide... More

We had one short day in Chile in February and our guide Julio picked us up in Santaigo and we spent a lovely day driving out to the coast to Valparasio. He was most knowledgeable and very mindful of what we wanted to do and see in the short time we had. I would highly recommend Chile Private Tours.

Our group of four spent two full days with Rupert touring Valparaiso/Vina del Mar and the Casablanca Valley wineries. Day 1 was Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, and Rupert had it all arranged so we missed a lot of the crowds at the sites and got us to Il Paparazza for lunch which is also a AAA recommendation.
