What to Expect
Top 10 Tour Agency in Santiago by TripAdvisor
"I have to say that this is by far the best tour agency I ever been with. These guys are amazing, they know the history of the places we went, the local food, even the music and they are always very open to explain tourists about history and arts."

"The guide (Fran) was amazing, unbelievably knowledgeable, personable, local but with excellent English having lived in the US. She was fun, charming and gave us a really strong sense of local culture and just knew how to organize a very full, rich day, how much to talk how much to let us just enjoy the view. Fran was very charming. She had loads of surprises including a nice wine toast and a spread of snacks for us before we headed back to town."
Deirdre Girard, USA - February 2019
"They are very efficient in communicating with you before your arrival in Chile as well as the night before each trip (both email and/or WhatsApp which is great). They recommend what items you should bring to make the adventure pleasurable. They are extremely punctual with their pickup times, and they are very, very flexible if a problem should arise."
Deborah DeMaddalena, USA - December 2018
"Fran & Seba - thank you! Our trip to Chile was even more spectacular thanks to your expert guidance and tour. Anyone in doubt - don't be - they are the BEST and AWESOME. Only wish they could be in every city we travel to!"
