“An excellent tour of Valparaiso and the countryside by very knowledgeable people.”
Review of Cultour

Reviewed 7 March 2010

I picked this company as a result of reading reviews on Trip Advisor and the experience was as good or better than described. I was met at the cruise ship by Silvia on the last day of the cruise and taken to my hotel to drop off the bags. From there we drove around Valpariso in a like-new Mazda. We stopped at key sites, had a coffee at Cafe del Poeta and rode up a funicular. After 3 hours or so I was taken back to the hotel and then went out on foot with a very good understanding of the layout of the city. Silvia was very knowledgeable about the city and her country. It was a very relaxed tour.
The next day Juanita, a pediatrician, took me, with the same driver as the day before, out into the countryside and we were able to discuss all manner of things about Chile, living up to the theme of their company, cultural tourism. We spent some time at a beautiful vineyard in Casablanca, El Cuadro, where we had a tour of this very modern site and a wine tasting which was more of a lesson in tasting than just sampling the wine. This was followed by a mini rodeo that was very interesting.
From there I was delivered to the airport, 2 days before the earthquake.
Juanita and Silvia were very helpful and well informed about all aspects of Chilean life. The tour was superb and I would highly recommend their company to anyone interested in learning about the country. Juanita is very prompt in replying to emails from her Blackberry.

One of the best tours I have taken. We arrived in Santaigo with two other couples, two days before our cruise and was met at the ariport by Juanita just as planned. The rodeo lunch and winery tour was fantastic and the tour of Valparaiso on day two was just as fantastic. Juanita had arrainged everything, including a very memorable stay at the Somerscales Hotel in Valparaiso.

On 13 February, 2008 after a cruise we needed to get transport from Valpariaiso to Santaigo abut 40 miles inland and decided that a trip via the wine country would be nice. The customized tour visited two wineries with a wonderful lunch at the second and a great deal of personal attention by the chief/manager. Juanita, an owner of Cultour and one of her associates were guides for the day and provided interesting information about Chile's history, current affairs, and wines. Cultour is highly recommended for customized tours and also as a cruise ship transfer from Valpariaiso to Santiago.

In February, 2008 we took a tour of Valparaiso with the tour company Gerencia Cultour. We had just disembarked in Valparaiso from our cruise ship and asked our hotel to recommend a city tour. They recommended and booked us with Cultour. It was an excellent choice. It was a wonderful, informative tour. We learned a great deal about Valparaiso, and life and culture in Chile. The city and the tour were one of the highlights of our six weeks in South America.
