Our guide Michelle and driver Jimmy were really great! Michelle is from the US so she speaks perfect English. Wear hiking boots!!! I had no idea there was a short uphill hike at the winery and did not wear proper footwear. The tour itinerary should be completely reversed. The mountain stop should be first, followed by the wine visit. 2 reasons: the road leading up the mountain is extremely curvy, I did not feel well after drinking wine. The second is that there is no bathroom stop for 2.5 hours from the mountain to the city, me and another traveler felt like our bladders were going to burst!

The vineyard is lovely and the tour was very nice. However the driver was 20 minutes late and the tour was shorter than advertised. Would have liked some extra time at Santa Rita to enjoy the museum.

What people are saying about Santiago
Excellent service, our guide very friendly and cordial, very informed about the area and place. Concerned tb of the precautions of the Covid-19. The very beautiful, natural place with beautiful views, the hot springs are very beautiful natural, the skin is excellent. The bonfire is held in a very nice place by Mrs. Claudia who is very friendly with visitors. On the other hand, to thank Ignacio for the information and coordination for an activity to be carried out the next day, without his support it would not have been a success. Thanks for the excellent guide and beautiful place.
The bus arrived on time for the pick-up and the tour of Valparaiso (“Valpo” according to our guide, as the Chileans will shorten anything they can) was interesting - particularly the street art. You do need to be able to walk down steps for this part of the tour. Unfortunately, 2 members of the group went AWOL (no fault of the guide), so we lost some time waiting for them and our tour of Vina was somewhat curtailed. Our driver also had to take a diversion on the way back to avoid the road closures in Santiago.
Excellent activity. Recommended anyway. Learn more about the history of the Cousiño Goyenechea family. I went with my 81 year old dad and he enjoyed it as a kid. Amaro as a guide is dedicated, detailed and with an excellent disposition.
Excellent tour! Pancho was very knowledgeable, funny and kind. I don’t remember our driver’s name but he was great also, I felt very safe. He was also very flexible with roads in Valparaiso. Great experience!
Excellent experience! Gorgeous scenery on a gorgeous day! Alejandro (and Francisco behind the wheel) were great — very knowledgeable and personable!
