What you'll do
10 AM "AUTHENTIC VALPARAÍSO" The city without masks or makeup! You will visit the fish markets to share with artisanal fishermen in "Caleta Portales" with the company of sea lions, pelicans and seagulls; Then we will take a "micro" to move to the busy and noisy vegetable market called "El Cardonal" to explore its surroundings and share with the cooks who will be preparing the most typical Chilean food at that time of day. After that, we will cross the entire city in an electric trolleybus to reach the financial district, which is another face, no less authentic but much more elegant, of the local human jungle. 1 PM "STOP FOR LUNCH" Your guide will recommend some places according to your interests and budget. 2 PM: "FAMOUS VALPARAÍSO" Discover what makes the city unique and special! We start climbing the hills in a traditional funicular to reach Cerro Alegre and Cerro Concepción. Then we walk through the cobbled and most picturesque corners of the city. Art galleries, street art, ancient churches and colorful streets will make you fall in love with this vibrant city. The promenades will be the perfect places to share with some local artists and enjoy one of our main riches: the view! You will learn about the influence of European immigrants after the independence of Chile and how Valparaíso became one of the main ports of South America! 5 PM We finish at Sotomayor Square
I was born and raised in Valparaíso and I have been a tour guide since I was 17 in 2004. A few years ago, I quit my boring job at a bank to dedicate myself to creating my own tourist company called Patatour Chile. My wife Pam and our little son Agustin are the center of my life. I am happy when I can help others to be happy, therefore, my focus on each tour is to adapt the experience to the interest of people. I love music, food and playing football with my friends at night.
