The walking tour is simply indispensable for understanding Valparaiso, the history and popular culture. Sergio, our English-speaking guide, was funny, intelligent and well-versed in the area. We learned so much.

The greatest way to explore Valparaiso! A big shout out to our guide Nati, she studied history and is a storyteller, the perfect ingredients to be an amazing guide. This tour is definitely a must do for every tourist in the city.

I took the afternoon tour at 3pm. It was super interesting and Nati did a great job! You could feel her passion for history and love of Valpariaso. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who's staying in the Valpo/ Viña del Mar area.

Typical amounts paid on the day we were there were in the $10-$20 US range. Just remember, you will need cash because they do not take credit cards. I believe you can pay is US dollars of in pesos.
