I booked with Thomas from Chile Private Tours for my colleagues and I for a full day excursion to Cajon Del Maipo. We were in Chile for our Canadian MBA program, and figured that since we were arriving early, it would be a great experience to see the mountains, natural springs, and artificial lake. Thomas was the only tour company... More

Ending our cruise in Valparaiso we needed transportation to Santiago. We booked, before starting our vacation, with Thomas Poussard from Chile Private Tours. Great decision. Our group of ten were promptly met at the cruise terminal with a tourist van having an attached trailer. All our luggage was put into the trailer. Plenty of room in the van. Our guide... More

I recently traveled in Santiago and Valparaiso and was lucky enough to have booked Thomas Poussard from Chile Private Tours. What an amazing guy. I had them booked for four days and during that time Thomas, Julio and Vincent all provided tour guiding for me. It was a highlight of a 9 week South American tour. I will be back... More

We had one short day in Chile in February and our guide Julio picked us up in Santaigo and we spent a lovely day driving out to the coast to Valparasio. He was most knowledgeable and very mindful of what we wanted to do and see in the short time we had. I would highly recommend Chile Private Tours.

Our group of four spent two full days with Rupert touring Valparaiso/Vina del Mar and the Casablanca Valley wineries. Day 1 was Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, and Rupert had it all arranged so we missed a lot of the crowds at the sites and got us to Il Paparazza for lunch which is also a AAA recommendation. Rupert's enthusiasm... More

Punctual. Friendly. Informative. Safe. Exactly what you want from a tour company. My partner and I spent a full day tour of Valparaiso and Vina with Vincent, and two days later, a transfer back to our hotel in Santiago. Vincent took us (and our luggage) on a great tour. It's money well spent to have a private tour as you... More

Thomas Poussard worked with us to arrange our day in Casablanca! His associate Rupert met us at the Santiago Airport and we began our day. We made our way to Casas Del Bosque! Here we enjoyed an incredible lunch (including wine of course) in Restaurant Tanino. Following lunch, we were taken into the winery among all the barrels of wine,... More

we hired Thomas Poussard for a day tour and transport from Valparaiso, ending at our hotel in Santiago. we were not disappointed. The tour cost only marginally more than a transport service. We opted for a northern route, and Thomas took us through coastal towns and villages with a lunch stop in a fishing village, areas we would never see... More

We spent two days with Chile Private Tours and couldn't have been happier. Christian took us (two couples disembarking a cruise ship) through Valparaiso and along the adjoining coast, showing us everything from frolicking seals to the town's hip and colorful graffiti. Thomas had arranged lunch in a delightful restaurant with a terrace overlooking the ocean. The following day Thomas... More

My wife and I spent two days with Thomas on tours of both Santiago and Valparaiso. We truly enjoyed our time with Thomas, he is extremely knowledgeable and shares the sights and history that fit his clients. I actually mentioned that he personalized the two tours based on understanding our interest/questions we asked and was not a "tour guide scripted... More
