Mario picked us up at our hotel and gave us a great 5hrs filled with history, art, and insight into Valparaiso. He was very knowledgeable and a great guide. There were other options for walking tours, but I believe that you would never have the experience my group had if we had been on foot or with a guide just... More

Mario was calm and professional, he had to give our tour in English and Spanish but still managed to keep us entertained. We saw a range of sights tailored to our interests. The tour was relaxed and low key, but we felt we got a good feel for Valparaiso and liked to hear about Mario's family. Not a stream of... More

Sorry to report that Mario was quite disappointing. We hired him for 2 days based on the reviews here. Though he is well spoken and personable, his heart was not in the tour with us at all. He spent way too much time on the phone with his family and friends which was so rude and annoying. For $450 U.S.... More

I've been to over 50 countries and have been to my fair share of hostels but it is very rare to come across an owner like this who really cares about her customers. She is just a wonderful person, full of knowledge, with a big heart and you feel that throughout this hostel. The location is ideal, the place is... More

We were just lucky that when we disembarked our cruise ship that we "bumped into" Mario who took us to our hotel. He had lived in Australia for a number of years so his English was excellent and he also offered tours in a van for those of us he rescued at the dock. We were unable to find a... More

We arrived at the bus station and were approached by a lovely young lady. We didnt have the intention of doing a tour, but after showing us the points of interest & meeting Marco, our friendly informative tour guide, we decided that it would be a great idea to do it seeing as we were only there for the day....

We arrived at the Valparaiso bus station with the intention of doing a free walking tour in the afternoon but were greeted by a lovely woman who introduced us to this tour. She didn't pressure us to join the tour but we throught it would be interesting and good value for money and we were right! Mario was a fantastic... More

We met Mario and his daughter at their information counter in the Valparaiso bus terminal. We signed up for a Valparaiso/Vina del Mar tour that day. He was very friendly, informative, and flexible with time. We enjoyed our day so much that we signed up for a day trip to a vineyard, Neruda home/museum in Isla Negra, and a couple... More

Our cruise had one-day calling in Valparaiso in April/2014, glad we signed up city tours for both Valparaiso/Vina del Mar with Mario. In addition to perfect English, he is very friendly and so knowledgeable! We’re really impressed, enjoyed very much our stay and learnt a lot about Valparaiso from him. Mario is the best and highly recommended!

Mario was very friendly and knowledgeable of Valparaiso, Vina Del Mar, and Santiago. He picked us up in Valparaiso at our hotel and took us to the local fish market which was fun and interesting as he told us about various fish and how they are eaten. He then drove us around Vina Del Mar which was beautiful. He told... More
