Our Wally Team
Carlos is a man of many talents. Primarily the skill of knowing all of our Santiago walking and biking tours back to front. There are few things he loves in life: his 2 cats, a cold beer, too many hours in bed and helping travelers discover Santiago. Everything else is just "alright".

Romina is someone who lives hypnotized by two things: Music's beat and Valparaíso's vibe. She's officially born and raised in Con-Con, but she spends most of her time in Valparaíso, showing and explaining why this place should be nominated as the most breathtaking city on earth.
Camilo’s unique dry humor, many years of experience and exemplary mustache make him a stellar Wally. He can do it all; conquer hearts, tell the best stories and lead you to the tastiest beer in town. Camilo does not shy away from talking about the rougher parts of Chilean history, nor his own personal connection to them.
Natalia (Left) being a freelance Wally guide is just her stage in front of an Audience. Perfect practice for this aspiring actress. She puts just as much enthusiasm and dramatics into her tours as she does on stage. Camille (right) a native Québécois, you couldn’t tell with her Chilean slang and nature. She studied in Santiago and decided she loved it so much and has extended her stay. A great person to discuss all things cinema, culture and politics with (of course with a pisco in hand).
