Greetings from Chile!
First of all let me introduce myself. I am Juan Francisco. I was born and brought up in Santiago, and in my opinion there is no such place as Chile. From my childhood I was raised to love my motherland, to respect its traditions and history. I was enrolled in a British school where I studied for several years.
After I graduated from the university I started working in the capacity of manager in several Chilean companies situated all around the country. For nearly twenty years I have been planning and organizing marketing events in those companies. Besides that I worked in a luxury ski resort for more than two seasons. I have to admit that travelling is my passion, and during my whole life I tried to visit as many countries as possible. First of all I explored my motherland. I have visited each and every corner of Chile and decided that it would be great to work as a private guide in Santiago, or any other Chilean city. At first I explored Chile on my own; afterwards I started to organize private tours for my friends and family members.
When I succeeded at this point I realized that it is time to try my guiding skills with little tourist groups, and all my clients did enjoy my guiding service. For quiet a long time I provided the service of Chile private guide only for fun and passion. But I realized that if I am capable of guiding a group of people, who are neither my friends nor my relatives, and make their holiday exciting and adventurous, why shouldn’t I charge for that? That’s how my hobby became a profitable business. It is worth noting that I also provide transportation. It means that you won’t have to worry about anything, because I will take care of all the details. It is very convenient that you won’t have to waste much time in the public transport, on the contrary you will save time for visiting some more places of interest in Chile.
I drive a modern, comfortable and air-conditioned minivan. It will be my pleasure to help you discover the charm and beauty of my motherland! You should know that I am always enthusiastic about my work. I am always eager to meet new people and help them organize their holiday in the most interesting fashion. There are certain things everyone associates with Chile. These are first and foremost incredibly beautiful beaches and outstanding wines of the highest quality.
With my help you will get an opportunity to visit some of the most popular and beautiful Chilean beaches, and of course taste its remarkable wine.
I can provide private and personal tours, especially in Santiago area and surroundings; amazing and exclusive wineries, relaxing coastal tours, Valparaiso´s world heritage, interesting city tours, Maipo canyon spectacular, stunning hot springs and glaziers, handcraft markets and more.
Join me on one of the listed tours or just drop a few lines on what your tour dreams are and I´ll come back to you with customized options.
Just do it !!
Latest Customer's Opinions:
We spend three days with Juan which was wonderful, informative, and something that we’d do again with him without hesitation. In three days we covered everything. In addition to everything he showed us and told us, the restaurants he took us to were fantastic and very memorable. I can truly say that we’ve traveled to many parts of the world and met many people, and if we were to have a short list of our best guides, Juan would be on that list. We appreciated everything he did for us and found him to be a fun and caring personality who looked to accommodate our needs in anyway he could - he was always flexible. Thank you again Juan.
