We had booked a tour with Ruta Valparaiso. We waited at the for two hours and they did not show up or call us. We took a tour with someone we found at the port. Were only able to see Santiago - Took the funicular and saw the city, had lunch, went to el Palacio de la Moneda. Then they took us to the Airport. We were not able to book a tour through Princess because our flight left at 8:45 pm . Read Less

Took a local bus to Santiago ($6 each way) and joined a Free Walking Tour of the downtown area. Very good tour. Good subways and bus transportation throughout city.

Valparaiso has an interesting history and many grand buildings dating from when it was the first port of call for ships after rounding Cape Horn. However it fell on bad times after the opening of the Panama Canal. Cerro Concepcion with its street art and good restaurants is worth a visit - take the quaint funicular railways. Read Less

This port is a waste of time. Don't take any of the tours in Arica. If you want get off the ship and walk into town on your own. But this is truly a wasted stop.

We booked a private tour for four of us in Valparaiso before embarkation and had a great time. The company was Michael, The German Pirate and he sent us Boris who was delightful. Went all over Valpo,to a fab place called Ocean Pacific for lunch, and the fish market and then took Boris' cooking class - he is also a chef- and made great Pisco Sours, Ceviche, and a Chilean version of tamale pie made with fresh corn. Delicious passion fruit for dessert with berry sauce. Read Less

We arrived at the airport in Santiago and easily and cheaply got transportation to Valparaiso. At the airport look for the BUS kiosks behind the Taxis. Pay the driver in local currency. Take the bus to Terminal Pajaritos. Buy a ticket to Valparaiso from any of the many companies providing service. Buses run regularly. Once in Valpo, we walked to the port, but it's a little complicated. A taxi would be just fine. At the port there is a shuttle that takes you to the departure building. Read Less
