Does anyone have tips if we want to go to Valparaiso on the day the tour starts?
Need local tour addresses, etc.

We did it just almost a year ago. Used a tour company recommended and arranged by the hotel's concierge. I don't recall its name, but it was 400 USD for 3 people (private tour). Do a search as this subject has come up several times in the past.
Docrq, I was on this SA tour last January. I took a day trip to Valparaiso and Vina del Mar on the day the Tauck tour started. I prebooked the tour, using Tours by Locals. I explained my timing with the local guide and he arranged to leave a little earlier. Valparaiso is pretty cool and I was glad to fit it in my trip,
I have used this company a number of times when I arrive a day early or stay a day later on my Tauck tours. You can check them out on their website. The guides are all licensed tour guides.
We have 2 1/2 extra days in Santiago. Do you have any additional suggestions? Has anyone used Viator for Valparaiso? Wendy
There was just a big fire in Valpaiso a few days ago.https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/25/americas/chile-fires-homes-damaged-intl-hnk/index.html
We are arriving in Santiago on March 11 and will probably go to Valparaiso on March 12. Would you be interested to share a guide?
