Hi! I'm Sergio. I've been a tour guide for 5 years, but I still feel like every tour is like my first one. I believe a walking tour is not only about dates or names of buildings and statues, but about discovering what these places tell us about the history and culture of a city, so as a guide this is what I like to study and share with tourists. My tours are a mixture of facts and anecdotes to make you learn and enjoy yourself at the same time.

Another great tour to learn more about Chile and view amazing art. Sergio was an excellent guide who seems to love his work. He showed us a part of Santiago we probably would have missed. Highly recommend this tour.

Sergio was an excellent tour of the Yungay area. Well versed in the history of Chile, Santiago, and Yungay specifically he really brought the area to life for us with his explanations of the history, culture, and street art of the area. We also loved ducking into some of the businesses of Yungay where he was able to show us the typical structure of the old homes and mansions as well as some rooftop views. Sergio is extremely friendly and speaks very clear, excellent English. Highly recommend!
