What people are saying about Concón, Chile

It was great to enjoy both natural beauty, as well as interesting architecture along with street paintings. Our tour guide, Daniel from Chile Dream Tours, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. One thing to note is that is was 15 degrees C cooler on the Pacific coast than it was in Santiago. Fortunately we had warm enough clothes with us.

Beautiful area and our guide was truly special. Sean speaks perfect English and shared so much information with us. He even took pictures of our group with his own camera and emailed them to us. Exceptional!
