Hello! My name is Alex. I worked in a german travel agency for 13 years while showing cities to clients and friends.I have been living in Bayern-München, Caracas, La Habana, Ciudad Panama, La Paz and Ciudad Mexico. I stay in Valparaíso since 2016. Many other cities are on my list of destinations to visit. This city where I live, also called "Valpo", reflects the charm of port cities. I always remember my streets when I walk through the city. Each city has its secrets and special stories and I will show you some of the beautiful places on this city tour. I love this city and now I want to share my experience with you. Maybe the time is short on a city tour, but you will feel my passion for keep travelling and show the cities. I will be waiting to show the routes and stories of this wonderful city!

About the tour

The tour begins at Plaza Sotomayor, where the historical buildings will be explained. From this place we will move in an old electric bus (called trolleybus) to take the elevator. The traveler can get a panoramic view of the city and the hills using this transport that has been running since 1883.

We will walk through Cerro Concepción and Cerro Alegre, places where you can see the German and English heritage. By visiting ancient places located between the narrow streets, you will immerse in the cultural atmosphere of a bohemian city.

You will enjoy street art, graffiti murals, colonial houses and cultural interventions of public spaces that demonstrate the willingness to maintain the tradition and rescue of local cultural values.

Restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and craft shops will allow you to take a pleasant memory of a charming city.

El guía no apareció. Y si lo hizo, no estaba vestido como lo había indicado. Me hizo perder el tiempo y el viaje a Valparaíso.

The walking tour with Alexander was a delight. My friend and I appreciated the time frame, as it was just right - not too hot, not too crowded. Alexander is very passionate about what he does - if you're in town, check this tour out
