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.

We were very lucky and had a private tour with Sergio. We had a really good time. Sergio had a huge knowledge about the whole history of Chile and could answer all our question. Would definitely recommend the tour :)

Sergio was extremely knowledgeable about the city and it’s history. It was so fun to listen to him as he took us through different areas, he even stopped for a toilet break and gave us chance to buy water in the hot temperature. We asked a number of questions and he never failed to answer politely, he also provided a lot of recommendations on things to do and where to eat.
