TOUR DESCRIPTION:

Valparaíso is an intricate labyrinth. The best way of discovering it and reaching its identity is by entering its hills, alleys and most picturesque places.

A guide will accompany and inform you while exploring and unfolding the city. You will experience the most typical places that are absolutely real (not considered officially “touristic” but undoubtedly authentic and full of charm), as well as the most famous part, known as the “World Heritage” area (proclaimed by the UNESCO). Your guide will explain and show you the interesting lifestyle that exists in Valparaíso. Charming and magic places, its particular aesthetic, its neighborhoods and its people will be revealed.

Walking and taking public transport becomes a great adventure in Valparaíso. You will be skin to skin with the city inhabitants; you will feel like one of them and part of the city. The public transportation is vertiginous, as it climbs and descends through impossible streets and alleys.

The old lifts are also visited in this circuit, not only the most popular ones, but also those that are hidden in the midst of the labyrinth and remain suspended in time.

We will be waiting for you; don't miss this incredible city tour.

TOUR DESCRIPTION:

Only 7 Km away from Valparaíso is its sister city, Viña del Mar, also known as “The Garden City”. Famous for its beautiful beaches, tree lined avenues, promenades, lovely gardens, castles, old mansions and its casino, a walk through Viña del Mar is highly enjoyable and pleasant for people of all ages and backgrounds.

It is very interesting to experience the difference between both cities – each so different and so close. While Valparaíso captures the concept of an old city with its heritage, Viña del Mar shows itself as a more modern and tourist resort style oriented city.

We will begin touring the downtown area and make our way towards the sea. On our way, we´ll be visiting parks and beautiful mansions dating from the beginning of the XX century. You will discover its beautiful beaches, coastal areas and its busy summer activity, while enjoying at all times the cool, salty sea breeze under the warm sun. The city´s fun and diverse features make this an altogether interesting and delightful experience.

We will be waiting for you; don't miss this incredible city tour.

TOUR DESCRIPTION:

The Northern coastline of the Valparaíso region has many very interesting attractions as well as beautiful landscapes, small cities or coastal towns and fishing coves. Visiting this area using public transport to arrive is to commute along with the local population in the same way they do. It is always a very nice cross-cultural experience.

In this circuit you will see different types of landscapes, like countryside and forests that reach the sea, sand dunes, industrial activity, small ports and beaches with clear, transparent water.

The final destination is a small and charming fishing cove, with peaceful activity in the winter season until spring and with busy local tourist activity in summer. The fishing boats are found on the shore of a small beach where they are pulled from the sea with horses.

There is a wide variety of restaurants specializing in seafood and fish. Tasting one of the area´s famous seafood “empanada” is something you can't miss.

The place became very well known in the beginning of the seventies, when many Chilean hippies chose it as their place to live away from the big cities. This fact has granted it an alternative and piratical atmosphere.
