I am Hector Medina, Chief Manager of HecTour and Specialist of Bilingual Tour, Transfer & Accommodation Services. My studies are based on business administration. I had the opportunity to improve my English studies in USA and my French at the Institute of French Alliance of Viña del Mar city. Upon returning to my land I realized that my vocation was on the tourist side. It is really what I love to do. Since 2004 I have formed a group of local tour guides and drivers very knowledgeable in the areas where we live. Our main concern is to provide a unique travel experience to each client by making them experiment, a bit of culture, food, landscapes of our country from an interesting perspective. As a "PRIVATE, PERSONALIZED & FLEXIBLE” service, our guests have the opportunity to know or visit what they are really interested in modern, clean and comfortable vehicles. We affirm you that we are totally responsible for your happiness and safety while you are in our care. Our role is critical in the satisfaction of your tour and/or in your business needs. We are passionate and well knowledgeable on every tour and information we provide.

The tour operators/owners of this tour service were very knowledgable and very very nice. The only drawback would be if they would produce an itinerary or various locations to visit and give you the choice. Quite possibly they do, I didn't book our tour. It was so nice though just being the 4 of us so that we could stop... More

From picking us up at the airport in Santiago to touring Santiago, to going to the Casablanca Valley to Loma Larga Vineyards for some wonderful wine tasting and then onto Valparaiso. Cristian was...

Excellent service. I would highly recommend to anyone. First, Hectour is prompt and responsive, updating via email and texts with current status. Vans are comfortable, clean and spacious. Service is very flexible and you can modify tours to your liking, but I would recommend sticking to their suggestions as they know the region best. I used Hectour for two daytrips... More

We had found a tour company before learning about HecTour Travel, but then worried when there was a lull in response from them. We began searching for other companies and found Jorge and HecTour. Jorge was incredibly responsive and put together a phenomenal itinerary for us. We were looking for a private and flexible tour for our babymoon and Jorge... More

I did my research before coming to Santiago. I was looking for a tour service to take us to the wine country and around Santiago. I used HecTour Service and had the pleasure of working with Jorge (guide) and Christian (driver). Both men were great. Very responsive, enjoyable to be around, and very helpful. Hector arranged accommodations for us. We... More

I had contacted Hec Tours about a customized Santiago city tour. Our guide was prompt, courteous, personable, interesting, and very knowledgeable. He even brought 2 umbrellas for us,... More

We just returned from Chile and spent two days with HecTours, one in Santiago and the other in Valparaiso. Each of the tour guides was knowledgeable, prompt, and just a pleasure to be with -- it felt like you were touring with a good friend. HecTours really understood what we wanted to experience (in our case, food, history, architecture) and... More

After checking on Trip Advisor Hectour seemed to have some of the best reviews so we booked with Hector. What a great day to Valparaiso from Santiago. Heaps of information about everything. A lot of knowledge about Chile and surrounding areas. Tour was very personalised with changes made on the run to fit our ability. (artificial hips dictate changes to... More

Great experience in travelling with Hector. Hector speaks fluent Spanish, English and Portuguese. He was always aware of our needs. He was there on time and helped a lot in our trip (he has a couple of stops). Highly recommended.
