This was a great day trip from Santiago. Driver Cristian and Guide Daniel were both excellent! We had lots of time to walk around Valparaiso and see the wonderful murals. Daniel guided us to the best spots. First though we went to a fish market on the coast and there was time to explore for a bit there also. Lunch was on our own which was really nice as we did not all have to choose from the same menu which would not always work for everyone. Then the wine tasting was on the way home which was perfect. We did a different tour on a different day and they had wine tasting first which just makes me sleepy and tired

This was an unbelievable wine Tour at a very reasonable price, we were picked up on time for our 5 hour tour. Our driver was funny, and very knowledgeable about the City, restaurants and of course Concha Toro, second largest winery in the world! We had a total of 7 tastings! The last 4 with a cheese n cracker platter! The staff at Concha Toro are all very educated about the winery, the planting, care, harvest, pressing etc. E cellent wine and the store has some very good Reserves, and souvenir shop. Sign up you won't regret it JT CANADA

What a great tour this is. Miguel took us on a lovely journey and was very informative. The walk around the laneways was the highlight for me. So much colour and as Miguel lives there, it had a local feel to the tour. Our transport was a Mercedes bus and our driver was excellent. I highly recommended this tour

Unmissable experience. We were able to enjoy each stop, the groups are small, the transportation is formal and comfortable, our guide Julio is truly the best. It is something I would like to repeat. I recommend it with eyes closed

Daniel the Guide & Oscar the Driver are the perfect pair for your tour, professional on what they do. Enjoyed & Learned about Chile esp about their Wines!
