I am Hector Medina, Chief Manager of HecTour and Specialist of Bilingual Tour, Transfer & Accommodation Services. My studies are based on business administration. I had the opportunity to improve my English studies in USA and my French at the Institute of French Alliance of Viña del Mar city. Upon returning to my land I realized that my vocation was on the tourist side. It is really what I love to do. Since 2004 I have formed a group of local tour guides and drivers very knowledgeable in the areas where we live. Our main concern is to provide a unique travel experience to each client by making them experiment, a bit of culture, food, landscapes of our country from an interesting perspective. As a "PRIVATE, PERSONALIZED & FLEXIBLE” service, our guests have the opportunity to know or visit what they are really interested in modern, clean and comfortable vehicles. We affirm you that we are totally responsible for your happiness and safety while you are in our care. Our role is critical in the satisfaction of your tour and/or in your business needs. We are passionate and well knowledgeable on every tour and information we provide.

This was an exceptional trip, our guide had very good local knowledge and was able to show us areas that we would have been unable to find on our own. He also took us to... More

All of the accolades you read about Hec Tour Service in Tripadvisor are true. We easily made our pre-cruise arrangements with Hector through emails and his webpage. We were so relieved when Christian picked us up in the middle of the night at the Santiago airport. Christian was our driver in Santiago and the wine country. Jorge was our guide... More

We could not have been more pleased with HecTour Service. Thoroughly enjoyed wine tours in Casablanca, tours of Santiago and Valparaiso. Guide was very knowledgeable, charming, accommodating and spoke English very well. We also used Hectours for many transfers to and from the Santiago airport - always there to greet us and on time to take us back. If you... More

I had a full day planned of wineries in Casablanca Valley, then a brief tour of Viña del Mar and Valparaiso. Our assigned guide from Hectour was extremely prompt in responding back to... More
