I did a walking tour through Valparaiso today with a company called Tours for Tips. Our tour guide, Austin, was quite entertaining and I really recommend doing this three hour walking tour where you decide how much you want to tip the tour guide at the end. The tour included a fun yet shaky ride on an ‘acsensor’ (the best way to travel up the cerros in Valparaiso) and a ride on a tram. At the top of the cerro (hill) we had a view all over the port of Valparaiso in front of the quirky Bellas Artes Museum. The Art Museum was initially a house of an art collector. The owner lived in the basement with his sister.Our tour guide lead us through interesting alleyways (here it’s called passajes)… …in streets past incredible murals……up and down many stairs.A few stray dogs joined us on the tour.After the last steep hill……the tour ended with a shot of Pisco Sour and an incredible view.I enjoyed the tour so much that I walked the route again with Dirk after his workday. We came across two murals by the famous graffiti artist INTI. We walked past one mural next to the street.The other mural is painted high above roofs of buildings and can only be seen from the viewpoint at Passaje Atkins – what a view!As recommended by Austin, the tour guide, we ate an oily Chorillana at the Domino Bar/Restaurant. They serve the chorillana with a lettuce leave, maybe to give it a more healthy appearance.
