Owner description: "Pay What You Want" Walking Tours Everyday of the week at 10am and 3pm in Valparaíso, Chile. We meet at Plaza Sotomayor every day of the week. Our guides wear red and white striped t-shirts like the children's book 'Where is Wally' or 'Where's Waldo' on some countries, so it is easy to find us. The tour is a 2,5 hour highlights walk through the city.

Really good tour with lots of information on history culture and politics. Can’t remember the girls name who took us around (began with an A) but she spoke excellent English and made it very interesting. Pace was good. Good to get to know the city in a short space of time

I can definitely recommend it to anyone who visits Valparaíso. It was the best English speaking guide I’ve had in Chile and the information she gave was useful and interesting but not too much at the same time. I really like the idea of tours4tips since I have the feeling that the guides really make an effort to satisfy you and even if you give a decent tip it will still be an affordable tour after all.

Hey Elisssabeth,

Thanks so much for leaving such a kind comment. I always love hearing feedback, but I especially appreciate it when it's as lovely as yours! It's fantastic to hear that you thought the guide's English was so good. It's never fun struggling to understand a guide because their accent is so thick.

It's great that you found the information so useful and interesting as well! I don't know if that's because we're so good or just because Valpo is so darn fascinating!

If you want to check out more Tours4Tips, definitely do our routes in San Pedro de Atacama, Viña del Mar, and Santiago!

All the best,

Peter

Can’t go wrong! Phenomenal business model. The guides love what they doing and are exuberant! Walked almost everywhere except they also gave us a lesion in taking the public bus which we used for the rest of our trip! Loved Leonardo!!!!

Hi Amelia M,

Ha! I appreciate your love for the business model! You got it totally right--we love our city, but what we love even more is sharing it with others. Thank you guys for being such kind and curious visitors, who allow us to do our dream job.

I'll make sure to pass on the compliments to Leonardo. It seems he really did an amazing job because all the comments have been out of this world!

If you guys are going to continue traveling throughout Chile, make sure to check out Tours4Tips in Santiago, San Pedro de Atacama, and Viña del Mar for more passionate guides and fascinating walking routes!

Great tour to discover the best views in Valpo, street art and learn about the city. We were even offered a sweet treat and A liquor during. I took the 3 pm tour starting in Sotomayor plaza. 4 guides were there and we were split in 4 groups per language (English or Spanish). No need to book in advance.

We did the 10am tour with Leonardo which was excellent. It started on time and we meandered through the flat part of the city before getting a bus up to the top. Even with cloudy weather it was fascinating to see other parts of the city, get a sense of the views whilst being informed of the history and background. The walk was gentle as it was all downhill with opportunities to stop for restrooms etc. I’d highly recommend this as an introduction to anyone visiting Valpo.

Hi SK7117,

I'm so happy to hear that you thought the tour was so excellent! It's a shame you guys had such a cloudy day, but I guess that fog is just part of the magic of Valparaíso.

Valpo is a really fascinating city, and it's great that you guys enjoyed learning about its history and politics so much. It's always awesome when visitors to Chile are as curious and passionate as we are!

All the best,

Peter
