Your exclusive tour begins with a picturesque ride through downtown Coquimbo. Observe the interesting mix of colonial and modern architecture surrounding the Plaza de Armas. From there, enjoy a scenic ride to the popular seaside resort of La Herradura.

Reviewer: Joann Mansfield
We were a group of 12 and wanted to do this trip together. Van was there right on time, driver and guide were excellent. We went places large busses could not go to. This was a wonderful tour and we could not have been happier. It was a personal way to learn about the area without fighting to hear the guide.
