The guide knew quite a lot, although I think the 3 villages are very similar, the different thing is the German museum and the churches. They could give the penguins time. The spectacular ferry

Excellent tour to know the churches of Chiloé, the very friendly guide and with great willingness to expire the entire tour.

Very entertaining activities and very informed and cool guide
