I only use the phrase 'the best' when I really mean it. I've taken free walking tours with well-known companies in Europe and around the world. My tour with Alex in Valparaiso was by far the **BEST** I have ever experienced. Not only did he meet the baseline expectation of knowledge for the tour/place, but he brought along visuals of almost every view we had that represented a past time of the town so you could see the difference in what had changed. His diverse background provides an interesting story/narrative about himself, and pretty much every alley/street we walked, he knew someone either as another tour guide, vendor, taxi driver, restaurant owner - you name it. Even the community dog he knew and the dog knew him. It was wild how integrated Alex was into the community as he gave the tour. He provided for the ascensor/funicular ride we took and a pitstop alfajor shop, as well as introduced us to an art studio. I've never been on a tour where were were able to meet and get a snapshot to their work as dynamically as this tour. Not only that, but we covered a lot of ground. Usually, these tours do that well, but we really did hit most things in Valp that you would want to see as a tourist if you went on your own. He was also very funny/entertaining and incredibly inclusive of everyone on the tour (despite it being quite small). I would recommend Alex for this tour over any other guide, and I would even hire him for a private tour if I had the means!
Great tour! Make sure you arrive early. Alexander was very friendly, Spoke great English, and showed us a lot of cool places with a good mix of walking and explaining hidden gems. We rode the funicular which was a cool experience. A great way to see the city which is hard to navigate by yourself.
Alex was absolutely superb. One of the best tours we've ever been on. He was informative, interesting and hilarious! Would absolutely recommend.
We loved our tour with John from Jurassic Tours! We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. John is so knowledgeable and friendly, we would recommend his tours highly. Thanks for a great day in Valparaiso!
