Romi took us in an interesting tour around Valparaiso. I was not particularly impressed with the city however Romi shared with us her passion and knowledge about Valparaiso.

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.
