One could almost say that our guide Gabriel was the highlight of the tour. Super friendly from the first to the last minute. Great info on pickup via WhatsApp. The explanations perfectly in 3 languages and also the general life now in Chile he brought us closer. Full 5 stars from me.

This trip seemed to me as the most interesting among other offers, as it includes visit to house of poet Pablo Neruda. Nicole was a great guide, and the whole day was really an excellent experience. I recommended the tour to my friend and he was also very satisfied.

The tour started on time and was completed in 10 hours as advertised. We were able to visit everything described with enough time to enjoy the sites. Nicole was very professional in conducting the tour in Spanish, Portuguese and English.

Gabriel is very knowledgable and super friendly. We enjoyed the trip very much!
