What you'll do
Valparaíso is an intricate labyrinth. The best way of discovering it and reaching its identity is by entering its hills, alleys and most picturesque places. A guide will accompany and inform you while exploring and unfolding the city. You will experience the most typical places that are absolutely real (not considered officially “touristic” but undoubtedly authentic and full of charm), as well as the most famous part, known as the “World Heritage” area (proclaimed by the UNESCO). Your guide will explain and show you the interesting lifestyle that exists in Valparaíso. Charming and magic places, its particular aesthetic, its neighborhoods and its people will be revealed. Walking and taking public transport becomes a great adventure in Valparaíso. You will be skin to skin with the city inhabitants; you will feel like one of them and part of the city. The public transportation is vertiginous, as it climbs and descends through impossible streets and alleys. The old lifts are also visited in this circuit, not only the most popular ones, but also those that are hidden in the midst of the labyrinth and remain suspended in time. We will be waiting for you; don't miss this incredible tour.

Valpo is not dangerous, it is just an intimidating city. Like Naples in Italy. Try to look the most normal as possible. Do not dress like Indiana Jones. Don't bring luxury jewelry, Watch your stuff.
