We were going to be in Santiago, Chile, for three days before a trip to the Antarctic, so we read with great interest the letter titled “Chilean Guide Excellent” (Aug. ’07, pg. 70).

We contacted M. Alejandro Molina (Vicente Perez Rosales 1654-C, La Reina, Santiago, Chile; home phone 56 2 2730241, cell phone 56 9 2983434 or e-mail amolina@ecoventura.cl or alejandromolinamarin@yahoo.com) and made an agreement and in November ’07 flew off on a seemingly endless flight to Chile.

Imagine our delight to have a smiling, warm and English-speaking M. Molina pick us up at the airport, take us to the hotel and help with the early check-in situation. On subsequent days, he and his driver took us to Valparaíso for a day and gave us a half-day tour of Santiago city.

He will arrange whatever you want. Our day trip to Valparaíso cost $l00; the Santiago half day, $60, and the airport pickup, $30.

We thoroughly enjoyed his company and how well he took care of our needs. I highly recommend him.
