Alvaro Gonzalez is a local private tour guide in Chile
Hello to you all!
First of all, thank you so much for stopping by and be interested to explore the longest country in the world, Chile!
Let me tell you that I was born and raised in Concepción, one of the rainiest cities in Southern Chile. I hold a B. A. Degree in Communications and Journalism, besides a Higher Education Diploma in Tourism Management and Sustainability.
I decided to became a tour guide because I truly believe that the act of human communication is essential for making a better and more understanding world, which is why I put all of my passion into letting others know about Chile's history and the immense social and cultural richness of the southernmost country on the globe.
During my 20's and after graduating from college, I spent time traveling and working overseas, particularly in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, but after seven years, I knew it was time to come home and I felt the duty to show the wonders of Chile to visitors from overseas. I sincerely take pride in my job as a tour guide because I play the role of ambassador to foreign travelers.
I have an infectious enthusiasm and passion for literature, the performing arts, photography and nature.
Regarding my background, I have over 10 years of experience working in the hospitality and tourism industry in both Chile and abroad. While living overseas, I had the opportunity to work at Michelin-awarded restaurants and top-notch retreat properties. I have guided over 20, 000 people so far, not only in Chile, but also in the rest of South America and I haven't lost a single one!
My mother tongue is Spanish and have an advanced command of English.
The topics I feel comfortable to talk about are history, arquitecture, politics, art & economics.
