... to Chile's First Street Art & Graffiti Tour:
"Valpo Street Art tours"
If you're wondering how you got here, it beats us. But since you're here, stay a while and enjoy...
Valparaiso, or "Valpo" as we call it, has a series of awesome pieces, by extremely talented writers and muralists.
Our intention is to take you there; to the underground; to the streets, to the alleyways, to the staircases... and show you a side of Valparaíso that very few people get to see.
Valparaíso is the cultural capital of Chile, as well as the graffiti capital of Chile.
Join us on our walking tour... let us take you to some places that the average travelers are not aware of.
BEWARE OF FRAUDULENT TOUR COMPANIES and Straight out PHONIES
When we started doing these tours, the other people who work in this industry in Valpo used to consider this movement as "tacky" and "unprofitable", and fell into the cliché of calling us "crazy". All it took was for Justin Beiber (sp?) to spray paint once in South America, and now street art is a "trend" (embarrassing for us). Well, we say take their "Street Art Tour" if you want... but remember that the authenticity is found HERE. Later!

A letter from the team @ValpoStreetArtTours about the Polanco Hill of Valparaíso...
We have been getting many emails regarding the Polanco hill and tour to that place. There was a festival that took place there and the graffiti is absolutely awesome. However, we've gotten many passengers who have been there on their own telling us about their safety concerns, because many have had problems with the local pick-pockets, so please don't go unless you have a local from the hill, and even then, please be careful.
We have a tour called "Going All City", where we visit the Polanco hill, but it is done in a vehicle, and you have both a local driver and a local guide to watch for your safety. See Tour.
