Receive a morning pickup by an air-conditioned minivan from your Santiago hotel. Proceed through the scenic outskirts of the Chilean capital to the coast.

Proceed to Valparaiso, a hilly port town that many have favorably compared to a Chilean version of San Francisco. Starting at the port check out Sotomayor Square before proceeding by trolley-bus to Anibal Porto Square. You also take a ride in the Queen Victoria Elevator and enjoy the “bohemian” vibe of the city’s Cerro Alegre and Concepción areas.

Take a break for lunch in a traditional restaurant before exploring the town’s lighthouse. Then head to the vineyards of the Casablanca Valley.

Arrive at Emiliana Winery, a vineyard that’s situated in what has come to be known as one of the country’s top wine-producing areas for both red and white wines. Take a tour of the winemaking operation and learn about its close connection with the local plants and livestock. You also get to sample the winery’s latest vintages.

Then receive a ride back to Santiago, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.

Great trip . Small group of 7 (plus guide and driver in an 9 seater minivan.Valparaiso is an interesting place and in the ~ 3hrs we were here we saw some of the highlights (including a trip up one funicalar and down another). Emiliana winery (a bio dynamic winery) is a very interesting and high quality winery (and only 2 minutes off the main freeway) so this is a great stop

This was an excellent experience over all. Our guide Javiera did a great job starting with the pre tour preparation with information on what to expect and how to prepare for a full day of walking and site seeing. She was a great source of knowledge for Chilean history and culture. She also knew a lot about the world and how Chile fit into it. She had an answer for every question even the most bizarre ones. The tour itself was spectacular. Valparaiso is a beautiful town and a definite must see. The only down side is that the time here is limited as there is a specific time to leave to get to the Wine tour. The wine tour in Emilina was also good. We had a brief tour that highlighted the uniqueness of the vineyard and a tasting of four different wines. All in all this was well worth it and a highlight of our trip.

It was a bit rushed. Both places deserve a day each. Javera had to control the schedule while remaining courteous. Not easy.

Very good tour. Easy communication via e-mail with the tour guide who spoke perfect English. The vineyard tour was informative on organic grape growing and wine production. Wine tasting paired with chocolate or cheese is included. Wineshop prices are quite reasonable. Once in Valparaiso we took a local street car to the port. Then started the walking tour. Unfortunately the funicular to take us to the first Cerro was out of service which required us to climb a series of steps I am guessing 60-80, There are a couple of other staircases to climb, but they more reasonable 10-20 stairs. Although the tour guides insisted there was no hurry to complete the climb, the stairs did take a toll on a couple of tour members. The walk around the cerro 's was very interesting- incredible street art. The funicular going down was in service, so no issues there. They took us to a nice restaurant with a view for lunch about 3pm, so be sure to eat a good breakfast before the and/tour or bring some snacks along.

This day trip is so much better than it sounds on the website. The wine tour is a really nice and interesting visit to an organic, environmentally and socially sustainable vineyard. Even the wine tasting was enjoyable and informative. The walking tour of Valparaiso was great. We visited lots of streets and alleys with Berti, our excellent guide, and felt we had had a really good exploration of the city in the time available to us.

A wonderful day with Valentina as our expert guide and our driver Francisco who had the patience of a saint with all the traffic he navigated us through. Valparaiso is such an interesting city, which personally I'd love to return to and photograph in greater detail... such a blank canvas for the camera lens. It was certainly a busy day with two cruise ships in port, but as we had a reasonably early start, we didn't really encounter to many other tourists until later in the morning. We both had a welcome lunch at the Calfulafquen and an ice cold beer Del Puerto Pale Ale, which I wish we could get here in Australia Restaurant before heading off to the Emiliana Organic Vineyard for a tour of the vines and a very informative view of the organic side of grapevines growing is. Once again many thanks and best wishes to Valentina for her future photographic ventures.

The visit to Valparaiso was very interesting. Colorful and eclectic housing and other structures are scattered on the steep hillsides, with many walls covered with abstract and exaggerated murals. Narrow and winding streets and stairs take one to new sights and colors around every corner. The funiculars are an adventure. The lunch restaurant had good seafood and great views of the city and the Isla Negra coast. The tour of the major sustainable winery in the Casablanca valley was very informative and interesting and the wine and cheese pairing at the tasting was a pleasant change. The guide had suggested and early departure from Santiago and an early return so as to avoid traffic jams and that was most appreciated. Our guide was enthusiastic and informative.

Our guide, Javiera, was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and she was very conscientious, going out of her way to be sure that we had an excellent tour. The wall art in Valparaiso is fascinating, and one could spend days just wandering around, looking at all the marvelous outdoor artwork on many of the buildings.

The guide picked us up right on time, and we made good time to Valparaiso. Once there, she walked us up and down the narrow streets, winding our way through the beautiful city. Having lived in Valparaiso, she was very knowledgeable and informative, as well as accommodating when we wanted to stop to take pictures or talk more about a statue or a building. She made sure we were able to ride the various forms of transportation to experience the city a bit more like a local. She took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch and gave us a bit of alone time to eat, and then we walked through a market and were able to buy a few things. After we left Valparaiso we went on a wine tour at a gorgeous vineyard and enjoyed some of the best wine we've had. We were dropped back off at the hotel around 6:30 pm. It was the perfect day trip and we would highly recommend it to anyone.
