“My guide, Charlie, was knowledgeable and energetic. Couldnt have asked for a better experience! Please remind him to look into the Amos Walker books by Loren D. Estleman. The first book is "Motor City Blues". First rate crime series heavily steeped in Detroit history. Great tour! Thank you.”

“Our Guide, Michaela, was absolutely amazing. Excellent combination of knowledge and fun. The tour was done at our pace. Inspite of the fact we were walking all day, we didn't really feel tired as we had regular breaks such as the Boat Trip, Lunch and the tram ride up the hill to Prague Castle. Michaela surely knows going the extra mile as she not only enriched us with knowledge about history, myths and legends of Prague and its attractions, but also gave us valuable tips on where to eat, do shopping, places to visit (excluding the tour) and where to stay away from. One of the best days we have ever had... 5 star rating for our 5 star guide :) Highly recommended!”

“Gonzo our guide was excellent. He combined excellent knowledge with humour to make it a very enjoyable day. Would definitely recommend this tour.”

Escape land-locked Santiago to the shores of the Pacific and experience local life in the seaport city of Valparaiso. A city of lights and an important site of Chilean culture and traditions, you can find bohemian life and artistic expression everywhere here.

We’ll hop on a local bus and leave Santiago for Valparaiso, travelling just as the locals do. Once we’ve arrived in the city, we’ll travel on public transport, and hop aboard the famous Ascensores de Valparaiso, hillside elevators that are part of the unique identity of this UNESCO city.

This Valapariso tour will take you to a lookout point to admire the immensity of the ocean that quietly baths the bay of the Pacific coast. We’ll explore Valpo as it’s known to locals; from the hillsides lined with colourful houses to the streets painted with graffiti. And in between exploring, we'll be sure to grab lunch from a local spot.

After learning the stories and curiosities of Valparaiso and Chilean culture, we’ll take the bus back to Santiago with some new Chilean slang and our soul full of bohemian spirit!
