“I fell in love with the country and… one of her habitants. I am passionate about the country’s culture, history and gorgeous landscapes. This passion is what my colleagues and I want to share with you, visitors from all over the world, when we show you around. And when we plan an itinerary for you, we do it just as if it was for myself or for my friends. This is our commitment to you: that my team and I will guide you with the same enthusiast than if we were good friends.”



Valentin Valentin Marion, Partner – Guide & Trip Creator

“After numerous travels across South America, I finally settled for 3 years in Valparaiso. It is from this mythical port that I have guided many travelers in this beautiful country, Chile. Today, I split my time between France and Chile, dedicating myself to creating tailor-made trips in this country that I love. An avid traveler, always looking for new playgrounds out off the beaten tracks, I will be happy to help you plan your journey in Chile. A passionate hiker, I still guide groups by myself all year long. So, I may lead you into the driest desert in the world, the glaciers of Patagonia, or the Wine country!”
