I am Hector Medina, Chief Manager of HecTour and Specialist of Bilingual Tour, Transfer & Accommodation Services. My studies are based on business administration. I had the opportunity to improve my English studies in USA and my French at the Institute of French Alliance of Viña del Mar city. Upon returning to my land I realized that my vocation was on the tourist side. It is really what I love to do. Since 2004 I have formed a group of local tour guides and drivers very knowledgeable in the areas where we live. Our main concern is to provide a unique travel experience to each client by making them experiment, a bit of culture, food, landscapes of our country from an interesting perspective. As a "PRIVATE, PERSONALIZED & FLEXIBLE” service, our guests have the opportunity to know or visit what they are really interested in modern, clean and comfortable vehicles. We affirm you that we are totally responsible for your happiness and safety while you are in our care. Our role is critical in the satisfaction of your tour and/or in your business needs. We are passionate and well knowledgeable on every tour and information we provide.

While on a cruise on the Queen Victoria, we had a all day stop in Valparaiso, Chile. I booked a private, customized tour with Hectour on viatour.com. I had a full day planned of wineries in Casablanca Valley, then a brief tour of Viña del Mar and Valparaiso. Our assigned guide from Hectour was extremely prompt in responding back to... More

I used Hectours for the time that I was in Santiago. They arranged to pick me up at the airport, and also transport me back. For the two full days I was in Santiago Hectours supplied Jorge and Christian as my tour guide and driver. I couldn't have been more pleased. One day was spent in Santiago and the other... More

Everything is done with a deft personal... More

We hired a Hectour guide for a one-day private tour of Valparaiso and transfer to the Santiago airport. The guide had extensive knowledge of the area and its history, and we learned and saw a lot during the tour. We were very satisfied.

We had originally booked a post cruise tour with the cruise line but decided to book a private tour instead. We chose HecTours based on reviews and a prompt, detailed response from the company. We toured Valparaiso on day one and Santiago on day two. Our guide, Jorge, and driver, Marcello, met at the cruise port for an outstanding day... More

We had just finished our cruise and wanted to see a few highlights of the area before we boarded our flight home. The Guide from HecTourService, Miguel, was the perfect guide for our day. This was a completely relaxed day where Miguel ensured we took our time, and stopped for photos when something caught our eye. Sometimes we just needed... More

We engaged Hec Tours for two days in December - the first to see Santiago and the second to drive to Valparaiso driving through scenic wine country and then seeing Valparaiso. We are two mature couples who are active curious travelers. Hernan arrived at our hotel on Sunday as planned. Unfortunately one member of our party was having a medical... More

The tour operators/owners of this tour service were very knowledgable and very very nice. The only drawback would be if they would produce an itinerary or various locations to visit and give you the choice. Quite possibly they do, I didn't book our tour. It was so nice though just being the 4 of us so that we could stop... More
