Valparaiso and Viña del Mar (Post-Cruise)

Don't rush to Santiago or the airport without seeing the charm of Valparaiso and sampling some of Chile's world-famous wines. After collecting your luggage and clearing customs and immigration, you will meet your transportation outside, and after loading your luggage onboard, will depart on your tour

Discovered in 1536, Valparaiso is one of the oldest and more charming seaports in South America. It was declared a heritage of mankind by UNESCO in 2003. On this drive around town, you will pass the National Congress and many historical buildings in the surroundings of this natural bay. During your tour, you will have an included ride on one of the fifteen elevators (cable cars) which are a must among the tourist attractions of this city. You will also be able to feel this city during the walking portion of your tour through its narrow streets and up stairways in one of the most traditional areas on top of the hills.

You will then drive to Vina del Mar, also known as "the garden city" situated north of Valparaiso. This is the closest resort to Santiago, the capital of Chile. During your orientation drive through this area, you will pass the oldest casino in the country, beautiful public parks, a real MOAI (monolithic human figure from Easter Island), as well as the beautiful beaches where many "Santiaguinos" (people from Santiago) spend their holidays. Here you will enjoy a seafood lunch.

On the way to Santiago, the tour will stop at a winery located in the valley of Casablanca, Veramonte, or Emiliana. The viticulture history of the Casablanca Valley began in 1982 and has become one of the favorite places for the development of new projects in the Chilian wine industry.

Veramonte is a well-established and massive producer of Chilean wine -- an easily recognizable brand for anyone who strays into the global section of their wine shops, as well as those who have a thirst for reasonably priced Sauvignon Blanc, of which Veramonte makes a seemingly never-ending supply.

Emiliana is the first organic and biodynamic winery in Chile. The Emiliana winery firmly believes that using sustainable, organic, and biodynamic agricultural practices result in better-balanced, healthier, and more productive vineyards, which in turn results in better quality grapes and therefore better wines. The winery visited will be confirmed on the day of the tour based on availability at the winery due to production that day. Regardless of which winery is visited, you will be treated to a guided tasting of some of their top wines.

You will then drive to Santiago where you and your luggage will be dropped off either at a central city hotel or the airport.

Please Note: This tour is for passengers ending their cruise in Valparaiso. The tour will begin at the cruise ship and will end at either the airport in Santiago or a hotel in the central Santiago area. If you are on a flight from Santiago on the same day of the tour, your flight must be scheduled to depart Santiago airport after 7:00 PM.

Amazing tour
January 25, 2020
We took this tour the last day of our cruise. We decided to take this 8 hour tour as our flight home was only at 10pm. We were just 6 people plus the driver and our guide Alvin. Alvin was great introducing us to the Amazing street art in Valparaíso on a walking tour of the upper city. We had a lovely lunch at Viña Del Mar and on the way to Santiago a visit to a organic winery for some tasting of good wine. After all they we were dropped off at the air port. I highly recommend this tour and this guide.

Pick you up at the port and drop you off at the airport with scenic stop and a winery in between. No complain here.

Our guide, Andreas, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and humorous. We really got to experience Valparaiso by walking around, taking funiculars, etc. It was a relaxing and enlightening day, and sure beat hanging out at the airport all day!

Post-cruise tour of Vina del Mar
April 06, 2017
Due to an unfortunate strike by the Chilean dockworkers, our tour was delayed by about 3 hours; however, Alvin was very flexible and we were able to have a shortened tour of Valparaiso before heading over to Vina del Mar and a wonderful lunch. Then a bit more sightseeing before heading to Emiliana Vineyards for winetasting, and then on to the airport. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour...just be prepared for any unexpected delays at the dock which are completely beyond the control of Shore Excursions Group.

Overall, excellent excursion and value. Brand new van, driver and guide. Restaurant selected for lunch was just ok, seafood pasta dish was missing the seafood. The winery where we stopped was excellent. Finally, journey to Santiago and hotel was pleasant - courteous service all the way!

Loved the walking tour of Valpariso...we learned a lot about the city, it's people, etc. We also enjoyed the rest of the tour which included lunch in Vina del Mar and, on our way to the Santiago airport, a visit to an organic vineyard, with wine tasting. Our tour guides were fun, interesting and helpful.
