     About Us
 

Chile Tours was established in 1998 with the specific purposes of developing lesser-known areas of the country as attractive Chile holiday destinations and integrating the many and diverse highlights with those in the neighbouring countries of Argentina, Peru and Bolivia.

In the early days, we were proud pioneers in regions that have grown to be better known and in others where tourism is still, today, in its infancy.  We were the first operator to introduce a diving programme in Easter Island, the first to feature a complete circuit of the Chilean and Argentinian Lake District also including San Martin de Los Andes and Pucon and our programmes also integrated the more unusual Futaleufu in Chile and Esquel in Argentina.  We continue to offer the lesser-known lake crossing option of Pirihueico and Lacer Lake between the two Andean neighbours.

Our tours highlight spectacularly beautiful El Yeso Reservoir and Rio Olivares, where we are often the only visitors, allowing clients to enjoy the majestic scenery of the mountains and the flight of the Condor.

Throughout 11 years of operation, our staff has continued to travel extensively in Latin America to respond to requests from loyal clients to enable Chile Tours to offer itineraries in Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. 

As well as including the standard popular destinations we have arranged trips for BBC Television, collaborated with the British Museum Travel Division and organised training treks for the British Army, demonstrating the versatility of our portfolio. 

Pablo Petit-Breuilh, Director of Chile Tours, has a deep and intimate knowledge of Chile and extensive travel experience.  In the 1980s he worked at the Santiago Head Office of the Chilean Tourist Board in the Promotion and Public Relations Department.  He was also coordinator for the Chilean Ski Association and responsible for the training schedules in Chile of the British Downhill Ski Team.  He later headed-up LAN Chile airline’s London office for 6 years, a period during which it became apparent to him that there was a need for a dedicated Chile specialist tour operator that could offer Chile and Beyond programmes. 

We are delighted to launch this new website and hope that it helps reflect the variety and depth of tours and destinations we cover. 

We take this opportunity to thank the many individuals and organisations that have contributed with photographs, with special mention to clients, now friends, Paul and Elizabeth Rogerson and Oratansa and Eric Van der Wateren.

Dear Pablo,

Thank you for organising my trip. It was one of my best. I cannot remember having any problems, even the weather was kind. I only wish that I spent longer in Patagonia. Chile is a most beautiful and diverse country. Everyone that I met was courteous and friendly.  I would hope to visit Chile again, I should have visited Chile earlier. Thank you gain for organising such a memorable and well organised trip.

Mr Scott / Cheshunt

I have already recommended  your services  to a friend who will be going to Chile next year. We could never have fit so many wonderful parts of Chile in 2 and a half weeks without your excellent  recommendations and tours.

Pablo, Muchas Gracias !

Mr Roberts / Mortimer

Dear Pablo,

We have recently returned from our month in South America. We had an exciting, wonderful time in no small part due to the tours arranged by you at short notice and within tight date constraints. Your advice and help was first class, even a recommended restaurant in Santiago was so good that we went twice!

Many thanks for your efforts in making this all happen and helping us enjoy some spectacular parts of Chile and the welcoming people.

Best wishes to you and your company

Regards

Liz and Roger Palethorpe / Farnham

Mrs Dunbobbin / West Derby

Dear Pablo,

My wife and I want to thank you for having arranged  such a pleasant holiday for us in Chile and Easter Island. We enjoyed our stay there  and our only difficulty was the very long flight from London to Santiago via Madrid. But in the end your country is so beautiful that it was worthwhile suffering the discomfort of the flight.

Mr & Mrs Jesch / Birmingham

The tours and transfers worked like a clockwork. All on time and excellent, friendly, knowledgeable tour guides. Buses, very clean and modern, drivers professional. Transfers were always on time so we didn’t worry whether they were coming or not. Messages were left at the hotel regarding times for pick-ups. Front desk of hotels were very helpful and could speak English.
The food, specially fish, was so fresh and tasty.
Lan Airline – good service – No problems with check –in
Wonderful vacation
