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.

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

My husband and I had an overnight stay in Santiago, Chile after returning from Easter Island. We had 8 hours the next day between hotel checkout and arrival time at the airport. 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.

Had the pleasure of getting Hector Medina as my travel guide for a few days around Santiago, Valle Nevado, and Portillo and he was amazing. He knowledge of history and current events around Chile were spot on. His English was amazing, his personality was even better. Would definitely recommend HecTours to everyone!

The days with HecTours ,by far, were some of the most enjoyable we have experienced. The variety and combination of classic sights and local knowledge made Santiago, Valparaiso and the Coast come to life. I am positive we saw so much more than we would have by ourselves. It is unusual for us to have city guides and in this... More

If you miss a tour with Hector you have really not had the full experience of Santiago, the wine country, Valparaiso and the Chilean coast. We travel the world over without tour guides and it has been great but when you have Hector it is even more amazing. His tours are personalized. After spending a few days with him in... More

Hector guided us through the wonderful places, Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. We had so much fun scrolling through our pictures and only good memories of working with HecTour Service! Hector guided us into the wonderful Chilean world, let us try typical food and above all learned us many things about the culture. Thank you Hector, we are really really... More
