I go on these a lot, but this one was just so so. Usually the guides mingle with everyone as your moving from place to place. She didn't really do this, just gave her information and this lame quiz.

Where exactly does the 3pm "Highlights" tour visit? The website is not very clear. I will be exploring the city myself earlier in the day and would prefer plan so I do not visit the same place twice.

Are reservations needed for the tours or do we just show up? Also - can I arrange for transport from Santiago to Valparaiso and from Valparaiso to the airport through your agency?

No reservations. I'm a person that used the service. Getting to Valparaiso was very easy via bus from the central station area. I just showed up and bought a ticket and was on my way in about 10 minutes.
