“I had a fantastic evening eating Japanese food with Sylvia on the Tokyo food tour. Sylvia was a great guide. Her English was excellent and she knew the city well and could direct us to get home and recommend other places / restaurants to try. Both restaurants were authentic with friendly, welcoming staff. They were also busy with Japanese people eating their which added to the experience. The food was delicious and vegetarians were catered for. I highly recommend this tour :-)”

“It was great to have a guide who works with street artists and who had such good knowledge of the scene.”

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!
