Highest praises to Stephanie Urzua who set up this incredible tour and transfer for us from our cruiseship,Queen Victoria on February 16, 2017. Stephanie was waiting at the pier for the four of us with our tour guide, Flavia and driver Patricio. A port strike the day before made our ship several hours late porting as a cargo ship was...

Thank you Micheal for a lovely day. After disembarking our South American cruise from Beunas Aires we were picked up as arranged and treated to a very informative morning touring Valparaiso. We stopped for a very nice lunch then went to the Indomita Vineyards on our way to Santiago. In Santiago, we were once again treated to a very informative... More

We typically like to get away from the large groups and either hire a local taxi driver to arrange our for our own tour at different cruise ports. I read about South Excursions on Cruise Critic and then decided to book two tours with them for a cruise in December 2016. We started with a tour of Arica, Chile. It... More

Our group of ten were met at the cruise port and had a wonderful tour of Valparaiso, a trip to vina Del Mar and wine tasting as well as a short tour of Santiago. Thank you Stephanie for your excellent care and quick communication.

After disembarkation off the Celebrity Infinity on December 24, we were met at the terminal by Camila, our tour guide. She promptly summoned our van driver and off we went (all six of us) for a full day of experiences. Camila, a delightful and informative art student (fluent in English) was a perfect tour guide. Each step along the way,... More

We had a terrible experience with South Excursions from a customer service angle. In short, when our cruise plans changed, we needed to cancel one excursion and book another. We were entitled to a refund, as the first excursion was more expensive. South Excursions provided incorrect information about the PayPal refund process and subsequently processed the refund incorrectly. This resulted... More

I arranged this excursion for 12 people on the Rhapsody. Stephanie was great to deal with but everything else was a bit disappointing. The vehicle was old and the ac was an add on and did not keep the vehicle cool. Our guide was Diego was pleasant and spoke good English but was inexperienced. We went to Indomita for our... More

Alex and Eduardo were a great guide/driver combo for our private tour/transfer from Santiago airport to Valparaiso. We enjoyed the private winery tour much more so than a large group tour we participated in later in our trip. Great to be able to hear information about he area and ask the questions we wanted of Alex while travelling. Highly recommend... More

Booked 3 different private tours with South Excursions while our cruise ship was in Brazil. We had dealt with them in the past in Argentina. We had an agreement to pay cash in US$ at the end of each tour. For that, I had to provide them with my credit card number. Just before our first tour, Stephanie sent me... More

In all the places we've traveled in the world, this is by far the worst experience we've ever encountered. A couple we hooked up with on our cruise roll call on Cruise Critic made arrangements for a pre-cruise transfer and tour several months prior to departure. We had to pay a deposit up front which should have been my first... More
