In this experience of "Authentic Valparaíso" you will discover the human landscapes of Valparaíso. It is very likely that you do not see tourists, but many local people called "porteños". You will visit the fish markets to share with artisanal fishermen in "Caleta Portales" with the company of sea lions, pelicans and seagulls; Then we will take a "micro" to move to the busy and noisy vegetable market called "El Cardonal" to explore its surroundings and share with the cooks who will be preparing the most typical Chilean food at that time of day. After that, we will cross the entire city in an electric trolleybus (good time to rest) to reach the financial district, which is another face, no less authentic but much more elegant, of the local human jungle. In this experience you will get a genuine local feeling without masks, becoming a true "porteño" for a day!
I was born and raised in Valparaíso and I have been a tour guide since I was 17 in 2004. A few years ago, I quit my boring job at a bank to dedicate myself to creating my own tourist company called Patatour Chile. My wife Pam and our little son Agustin are the center of my life. I am happy when I can help others to be happy, therefore, my focus on each tour is to adapt the experience to the interest of people. I love music, food and playing football with my friends at night.
