Interesting and relaxed day escape
Mar 2020 • Friends
This tour company is very good , our guide Rodrigo was able to keep us entertained with his excellent knowledge of the areas the tour covered and of Chile generally, our driver Francisco managed the bus perfectly as there are some very narrow, steep and winding roads in Valparaíso. The bus was clean and well maintained. Valparaíso is an interesting city to visit, would love to have seen it in its heyday. I’m glad we took the time to see it. After a boat ride in the harbour we drove through to Viña del Mar stopping at the flower clock and then to lunch. The food and service at the lunch stop was also of a very good standard, we opted for a snack off the a la carte menu. A quick stop at the Moai statue before our return.
I would highly recommend this tour with TurisTour, Valparaíso streets can be a bit challenging if you aren’t confident with your balance and footing.

Needs Improvement
Couples things that need improvement: 1st: When the bus driver sees people coming back he really needs to be on top of getting in the bus and starting up the Air Conditioning! This is important for hot days. 2: Less time at the restaurant or find a different restaurant. They were out of chicken and when I got up to go to the bathroom when i came back they had already cleared my table and sat 2 other people down. I wasnt done eating. (Maybe explain to the group how long you plan to be at the restaurant... since it was hours... and let the people decide if they want to go their, walk the beach, or find somewhere else to eat and then be back by a certain time. 3: The guide forgot to turn on the wifi alot during the drives even when reminded. 4. The guide forgot to mention to the WHOLE group in ENGLISH when the last bathroom stop was and it would be hours before another bathroom break!

Other than those improvements the driver and guide were nice and the towns beautiful.

The tour is very good and covers many good places.

As I don't know Spanish, I chose to take a guided multi-lingual tour and I chose a tour with this company .

The guide Rodrigo was good. He has lot of information to share for every place they take us.

Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar are must visit places near Santiago and the tour with Turistour is great for this.

Great Tour
Jan 2020
Enjoyed this all day tour to the seaside. The hotel pickups were a bit of a process as a small bus picks you up as well as other guests and then drops you at the main building where you wait while people go in to pay. After that you get on the coach bus which was comfortable. The tour guide tried very hard to ensure that everyone was well informed and happy. The first stop was a picturesque winery where you could do tastings. The lunch stop was very good with delicious seafood and a lovely view of the ocean. Enjoyed the harbour boat tour, and the walking tour of the murals. Hotel drop offs went quickly. Good value for the money.

Exceeded Expectations
Oct 2019
We arrived in Chile in the middle of the demonstrations at the end of October. We we not sure if the tours we had booked would even go on as planned, but luckily Turistours continued operating. There is some walking in Valparaiso but mostly downhill. It's an interesting, hilly town with beautiful street murals. The restaurant in Vina del Mar had excellent seafood and a great view of the coast. We didn't visit Veramonte vineyard for a wine tasting as promised, maybe because of the demonstrations, but this was not explained and there was no reduction in the price of the tour or effort to find an alternative activity to make up for the loss. We are glad that Turistours did this day trip but they really should have handled the Veramonte portion of the trip differently.

Dear Karen Indeed, all our team is making our best efforts to be able to provide all the services in spite of all the situation we are experiencing in Chile. The stop at Veramonte vineyard is for the toilets to use and as a courtesy we offer a glass of wine for those who want to taste the wine and probably buy some. The safety of our passengers and our staff comes first, that is why all our Operations team is constantly monitoring the streets and activity in the cities (in this case Valparaíso, Viña del Mar and Santiago) and based on that we take decisions at the moment, to protect the safety of all those on board on the bus. We hope one day you return to Chile and we will be able to offer you better conditions in such a way that you will rate us better. Best regards, Turistour Team

Great Day Tour to Vina del Mar and Valparaiso
We had a very enjoyable time doing this tour. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. The bus was very comfortable and our tour guide Rodrigo was fantastic. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and spoke excellent English and could swap between the different languages easily. We are staying in Santiago and only had one day in which to see both Vina del Mar and Valparaiso and are glad we chose to do this tour. My wife and I and our 15 year old daughter all had a great day.

Most interesting and worthwhile tour
Sep 2019
Whilst staying in Santiago we went on a full day tour on the 20th September to Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. It included a stop at a winery and plenty of time at both destinations to have a look around at the sights. Our guide Martin who was Chilean was very knowledgeable and took great trouble to explain all the buildings and history on the way. We had a good relaxed lunch at Vina Del Mar with some excellent wine. The tour included walk through the old hilly part and a ride down the funicular in Valparaiso. Also a boat trip in the harbour to view the city from the sea and catch a glimpse of the Chilean Navy. Altogether a most enjoyable experience and I would thoroughly recommend this tour and the company and guide.

Not good. Mass production, rushed and low value tour, and worse..
This is a typical big group drive-by on the bus tour. Most time are spent on the bus, with tour guide points to some landmarks. You spend very little time at each stops, just have enough time to take some pictures, there is no personal experience at winery or Valparaiso.
The worst part is the lunch. With $60 per person, a bus if 50 people, not only is lunch not included, it seems that it partners with a restaurant Vina Del Mar to get the tourist into this restaurant with a set manual with some high price. There are so many local restaurants in Viña Del Mae and in Valparaiso, and the tour guide told us that we will stop at this place for lunch because there are a lot of choice. However we were brought in front of this restaurant where there were 7 servers lined up blocking the sidewalk and get everyone in this place they selected. The place they stopped only have 3 restaurants and 1 fast food place - not many choices. When we sat down, there was a menu on the table with a set lunch with no price. When we asked, then they bring up the regular menu. They much think the tourists are stupid. We ended up walked out and across the street to a family restaurant. The restaurant TurisTour brought us to was nothing special, very plain touristy place, with high price. We could have gone to city center of Valparaiso which has many good local restaurants.
The tour at Valparaiso is also very brief. Instead of we walk around the hills and explore ourselves, the bus took us to the top and we followed the tour guide walk down, all in all 20 minutes. This is definitely not the tour I have in mind. A bus ticket from Santiago to Valparaiso about $5. The value of this tour is very low. Everything is rushed. Avoid this tour.

Good morning Madam/ Sir We understand your disappointment, but we not share it. In our brochure, we provide all the information about the tour: It is a regular, shared tour, and we declare in 3 languages what is included and the itinerary, so we don't understand why you had an idea of something different. Please, let us know your name or when you took the tour, so we can check if that day there was some special event. Regarding to Lunch: We do have to stop cause our driver and guide need to have lunch and rest to provide an excelente and safe service for the rest of the day. Indeed, there are plenty restaurantes in Valparaíso and Viña del Mar, but not space to park a bus. We stop in the restaurante in Viña del Mar, basically cause they have space to park and cause they book tables for our group, which is very necessary special in a busy day. But we can't force you to eat there, there are more choices and you are free to choose. In fact you said that you ate at a family restaurante , which was your choice. In Valparaíso we spent mores that 180 minutes, including the panoramic tour, the walking tour, the ride in the funicular and the sail on the bay of Valparaíso. The price is about USD$60 per person, we are in the average of all the operators that offer a legal, official and shared regular tour to Valparaíso and Viña del Mar. A private tour to the same destination would cost aprox USD300 and in a private tour you will have the chance to have lunch wherever you want, to visit the places that you want, and of course with a car or a van will be easier to park in different places of the city. If you want to let us know your name or when did you took the tour or any other detail , please send us your contact to cgaldames@turistour.cl Many Thanks TurisTour Team.
