  • Visit the resort town and pristine beaches of Viña del Mar
  • Enjoy a harbor boat ride to see Chilean navy ships and sea lions
No trip to Chile is complete without visiting the colorful coastal cities of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar.

Our tour begins with your hotel pick up and then an hour and a half drive to the Chilean coastline. We start the drive along the coast in Concón, known for its seaside restaurants and surf shops. We pass by the impressive Concón Sand Dunes where we will have panoramic views of Valparaiso Harbor.

The tour continues by the popular beach town of Reñaca where on most days we will spot sea lions lying on the coastal rocks. We then drive through Viña del Mar, Chile’s “Garden City,” where you will see the city’s landmarks, including the Flower Clock and Casino, a “Moai” statue from Easter Island, as well as the city’s pristine beaches.

Afterwards, we reach our main destination, Plaza Sotomayor, the heart of Valparaiso. We will first go on a 30-minute boat ride around the harbor. Then, we will take an old funicular up to Concepcion and Alegre Hills. Bohemian and colorful, Valparaiso’s maze of hills has long inspired poets and writers. You will discover something new at every turn – a gem of a building, a remarkable art gallery or some little gastronomic ‘find’. Revel in the architecture of this UNESCO World Heritage City. Stroll along its narrow streets, climb its endless staircases, and enjoy panoramic views from its many lofty lookout points.

“I highly recommend Chile Dream Tours. My friend and I took two different tours with Chile Dream Tours in April 2019 - Both tours were customized winery tours. We wanted to visit wineries that were unique (e.g., family-owned, organic, unusual varietals, scenic). Sean with Chile Dream Tours found the perfect wineries for us, and we enjoyed every single one! We worked with Sean to arrange the tours, and Genevieve was our tour guide. Sean was amazing - he helped plan and customize our tours so that they were exactly what we wanted. He gave us suggestions based on his knowledge of Chile and he was also very responsive to our interests. He was very good about answering our many questions. And he was very easy to reach - both through email and WhatsApp. Genevieve, our tour guide, was also wonderful! She was very helpful and knowledgeable. She took care of everything we could possibly need during our tours. She was waiting for us when we got off the plane in Santiago (she picked us up at the airport for the first of our winery tours) -- It was very easy to meet up with Genevieve. And then on both of our tours, she took care of everything. We had tons of fun! (That's why we booked a second tour :) I've already recommended Chile Dream Tours to several people, and I plan to use Chile Dream Tours again if (when) I return to Chile. It's fantastic!”

“Sean was a great local guide who spoke both English and Spanish languages perfectly well not to mention how personable, punctual, organised and knowledgeable he was. The tour was relaxed and comprehensive. If you are looking for a wide overview in a limited time... he is great and will show you the best spots.”

“Our 8 day visit to Chile included two highlights on THIS tour. Sean took us about an hour or so outside of Santiago to Quintessence Criadero and Boutique. We had an "up close and personal" experience with this Alpaca farm and business. Sean's own enthusiastic interest in these animals was reflected in his translations of the tour guide's information. This is not only a tour for animal lover's but for Textile lovers. The story of the evolution of this farm and business is delightful. Knitters: Baby Alpaca Yarn is available for purchase! We also went to the coast for a terrific lunch by the sea and then PENGUINS. Near the town of Cachagua , Chile, we hiked on a stone pathway on Zapallar Beach to a point to view the Humbolt (?)Penguins . The Island where they reside is a protected area. Sean had binoculars available for up-close viewing, too. Sean's generosity with his enthusiasm and knowledge made this a 5 star tour.”
