We spent 3 days with Thomas and his team in Santiago and Valparaiso, we could not have picked a better tour group. The visits and restaurants they picked for us were excellent as well as the guides and driver. We were six travelers and four of us came in a day later than expected (flights issues), Thomas ( and Andres,... More

We had the very good fortune of planning a day tour of Valparaiso and subsequent transfer to Santiago through Thomas Poussard, owner of Chili Private Tours. Sometimes, pre-arrival planning in a part of the world we're unfamiliar with can be daunting. He made the planning easy. The arrangements were thorough, the itinerary intriguing and the execution perfect. Julio was our... More

My daughter and I made last minute plans for visiting Chile after being invited to a wedding there. Despite that and it being high season Thomas put together an entire week's worth of tours for us. We toured wineries, visited the Andes, took a cooking class, toured with a talented street artist, toured markets, local landmarks and ate authentic Chilean... More

My wife and I booked two tours through Chile Private Tours and we were not disappointed. First, dealing with Thomas for the booking was a breeze and even though our dates didn't quite worked out at first, he found options for us and we ended up having a fantastic time. We did both the Valparaiso & Viña del Mar tour... More

My husband and I went on a South American cruise and really wanted a private tour of Santiago (arriving in Vina Del Mar from the ship) and flying out of Santiago. Thomas from Chile Private tours was the only tour guide to get back to us immediately AND even rearranged his team's schedule to accommodate us. He set us up... More

My friend and I went on a tour of Casablanca Valley with Vincent! First of all, we had a very short stay in Vina Del Mar and didn't have time to check out Valparaiso so I had emailed Thomas to see if our tour guide can come a bit early and we can do a tour of Valparaiso and he... More

Hello Jay, Thanks for your review. I understand your mild disappointment about the first winery. We should have included the cheese or chocolate in the first tasting. My bad. And you make a good point: we provide a private tour in the sense that it's private vehicle and guide, however the wineries have their own guides (which is better because... More

Had a great tour of Pablo Neruda’s house in Isla Negra & Pomaire with Lorato, and would highly recommend it. I planned to stay a few days in Valpariso and then fly I the evening out of Santiago, and thought it would be nice to tour around on the way. Pretty much had in mind what I wanted to see,... More

Peter, Fort Lauderdale Feb 2017. We were picked up outside the terminal by charming Loreto after departing our Celebrity cruise. She took us for a nice drive- and walktour of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar before we drove up through the beautiful Casablanca Valley with both lunch and wine tasting stop before we were dropped of by our Santiago hotel...

Pascal was our guide for our private tour of Valparaiso, Vina del Mar, and the wine country. This was a great option for our group of four adult and a toddler--it really facilitated getting from place to place having a guide with a vehicle. Pascal was very knowledgeable, and we had a great four days together.

Our day started with disembarkation from cruise ship in Valparaiso. Rupert (our guide) and George (our driver) were waiting for us as planned and ready to go. The private tour for four was excellent. Starting in Vino del Mar, we experienced the local culture first hand and were filled with historical and cultural commentary. Rupert was most accommodating with our... More
