“Juan Sunkel is a terrific guide!”...The Lake District of Chile is a destination not to be missed! With only one day in Puerto Montt on a recent cruise, we booked a tour with Juan. We enjoyed the day viewing the volcanos, Petrohue Falls and the beautiful lakes. Juan was very responsive in booking the tour, met us on time and with a smile! Very pleasant and knowledgeable! Check out his website. You'll be pleased with his services.

During our 5 weeks trip to South America we booked lots of private tours and we met many different guides. They all were nice but the day we spent in Puerto Montt with Juan was very special to us. He knew all the nice and secret places and had the perfect timimg to get us there before the crowds from the cruise ships arrived. It was just like spending a day with an old friend. And talking to him in German almost felt like home... Whenever you have the chance to book a tour with Juan, do it!!!

Selecting Juan was one of the highlights of our two week trip through southern South America. Juan is very friendly, speaks English well, and is well versed on the area. He was waiting for us as we got to shore and had a new van which was very comfortable. We could not have been happier. The cost of this tour was only a bit more than had we both taken the ships group bus tours which were not as much fun as being with Juan. I happen to be a bird watcher and he was helping us spot birds and would patient as we got out to look. Don't hesitate to use Juan on your trip to Puerto Montt!

LAKE LLANQUIHUE CIRCUIT & OSORNO VOLCANO Pat & Garland (17 Mar 2015) Very pleased with tour guide. Really understood what we were hoping for, very comfortable with his driving, his discussion about the area, what he included in the tour. A definitely great day made so by our tour guide. Might have gotten rid of small towns or driven thru instead of walking around town square but a great time!!!!

“Private tour from Puerto Montt”/ Having previously been to Puerto Montt, we sought an alternative to the ship tours and found JuanSunkel Cerro as coming highly recommended. He met us at the dock and took us on a tour of LAKE LLANQUIHUE & the OSORNO Volcano. Beautiful countryside; lovely towns and villages. He is knowledgeable and personable and his English is good. Only limitation was that because of the time constraints of the ship's limited time in port, we couldn't take the ski lift beyond the lodge to the top of the volcano. We got back in time to do a little street shopping in Puerto Montt. (By the way, the best place to buy souvenirs in Chile.) Would recommend using him.

To Whom It May Concern: This note describes the outstanding job that Juan did while we were in Chile as part of the “Peaks and Fjords” cruise that we took. We met him when we docked in Puerto Montt. His personal attention ensured that our expectations were 100% fulfilled. He was cheerful and talking to him was easy. He knew the Puerto Montt area well and took us to places that other tour guides missed.

Stuart Goldman | | 18. marzo 2015

Juan was excellent in every way. He is intelligent, articulate, easy-going, and flexible. He accommodated all our requests and gave us a delightful all-day tour (Volcano Osorno & Petrohue Waterfalls). His new minivan is comfortable.

Très Bon Service. Juan Très Aimable Et Disponible. Nous étions 6 voyageurs et nous avons eu un excellent service de la part de Juan. Accueillant et très affable. Merci (Surfant sur la croisière Golden Princess qui est arrivé à Puerto Montt en Janvier 2015).

Malcolm Hayward | | 07. marzo 2015

Fantastic trip and tour guided by our now very good friend Juan Sunkel. He was always on time and highly informative and made all of my family feel very relaxed. My wife and I have a 2 year old boy who travelled with us and I have to say Juan was very good ( and patient) with him , his singing and music in the car! We thouroughly enjoyed ourselves as Juan knows the region extensively and took us to the best spots. Highly recommended! We will be back soon Juan! Abrazo!

Gijs van den Hurk | | 07. marzo 2015

Perfectly on time (in the harbour) with a brand-new touring car, very friendly, caring and informative in german and english, JuanSunkel provied us with an excellent private tour of Puerto Montt, Puerto Varas, Lake Llanquihue, Orsono Vulcano and its beautiful surroundings. Always explaining our questions and stopping at request at any scenic place (lake, lama's, vulcano, river, plants, flowers, etc.) Juan allowed us magnificent nature videographing always with a silenced car engine. Juan Sunkel should not be missed as a guide when visiting beautifull Puerto Montt in Chile with a videocamera.

Gijs van den Hurk | | 06. febrero 2015

Hallo Juan, Nochmals vielen Dank für deinen wunderschönen und punktuellen Ausflug rund Puerto Montt. Wir haben es sehr genossen. Unsere weitere Reise nach Castro, Puerto Chacabuco (Regen), Los Glaciares Nat. Park (schönes Wetter), Magelhahn Strasse (schön), Punta Arenas (Nebel), Beagle Kanal & Ushuaia (Nebel), Kap Horn & Antarctica (schön !), Falkland (unbeständig), Punte Este (schön mit 2 Stunden Unwetter), Montevideo (schön), Buenos Aires (schön + warm), Iguazzu Falls (schön + warm) und Rio (schön + heiss) waren fabelhaft interessant und wir haben viel gesehen und viel gefilmt. Am 22 Januar waren wir wieder zuHause in der Schweiz. Hier ist es jetzt tief-Winter (bis minus 5 Grad Celcius) mit 50 cm Schnee im Garten. Liebe Grüssen, Ellen & Gijs van den Hurk.

“Private tour in Puerto Montt” My family hired Juan Sunkel to drive and guide us on our 1 day in Puerto Montt Chile. We arrived from a cruise ship and he was there to greet us as promised. He drove us in nice new mini van to the Osorno Volcano and took us on a wonderful hike to the top. We then went to the Petrohue Waterfalls and hiked a bit there--really you just look at the views. Then on the the green lake and to a beautiful town of German descent Puerto Varas--great town to walk around. Llanquihue Lake is also stunning. And, then back to the ship in plenty of time to board. He did just as promised and was very easy to be with and considerate of our wishes. Good guide.

Karen Doria | | 12. enero 2015

Beautiful day, very informative and friendly, very pleased...I would highly recommend the services of Juan! TOUR VOLCANO OSORNO & PETROHUÉ WATERFALLS.

Xavier & Brigitta Fernandez | | 31. diciembre 2014

We were very pleased with Juan. He is an attentive and caring person. The tour arranged by him was quite extensive and touched on all the highlights including getting us up to the chairlift which one can use to get to the top of the Osorno volcano. He had just purchased a new KIA, an SUV model, which ran smoothly and was very comfortable for us. Ours was a private tour which included a trip to Petrohue River and to Puerto Varas, the City of Roses. We were well looked after, including an introduction to a restaurant with German ancestry but also serving Chilean food. That was our request. He brought us back to the pier, on time and after a very eventful day having introduced us to the delights of Chile. Juan speaks English well and is also fluent in German. He has extensive knowledge of the area and was an excellent guide. We would without hesitation recommend him.

Michael Carr | | 19. agosto 2014

Juan, Suzanne and I were very happy with the way in which you looked after us in Puerto Montt. You speak very good English and we had no difficulty communicating with you. We appreciated your sense of humour and you have a very good knowledge of the local area including cultural matters, flora and fauna. We felt that you made good suggestions and choices as to where we should go on the various day trips and the trips to the Island and up into the lake area were spectacular. You knew the best places to take good photos and we appreciated the photos that you took of Sue and me together. You were always punctual and the car was clean and we appreciated the supply of drinking water and hand-wipes etc. We have certainly recommended that our friends travel to Chile and down to your area and we would strongly recommend you as their guide. I hope that you can use this reference and we are sorry that we could not use the official website to provide our reference for you. We certainly want to return to Chile at some stage and to go further south in Patagonia. It is our intention to visit Antarctica via Patagonia and also visit Machu Pichu and the Galapagos Islands in the next year or so. Best Regards, Suzanne and Michael Carr, Australia.

Wonderful private car and guide - AVOID THOSE BUS TRIPS!! We booked THREE consecutive tours with Juan Sunkel late June 2014. We were three single women on a long weekend out of Santiago, interested in seeing the Lake Llanquihue region. Juan picked us up at Puerto Montt airport having waiting for our two hour flight delay. We spent the afternoon and early evening at Ensenada, Petrohue Falls and (ski season’s opening day) Volcano Osorno. Second day was a 10 hour visit to the island of Chiloe. Please include time to visit this island and it's penguins, birds, sealife! Third day we traveled along the western shore of the lake to the towns of Llanquihue and Frutillar. You’d think you were in southern Germany! Drop off back at the airport. Juan’s English, German, and driving skills are excellent. His services are the perfect choice for cruisers and independent travelers. Julie, Aubrey & Colleen/Huntington Beach CA.

In November 2012 I had a few days free from meetings in Santiago. I had never seen penguins in the wild. The nearest seemed to be on Chiloe. I was advised to contact Juan Sunkel. It was the best travel advice I have ever been given. Juan met me in Puerto Montt and over two short days was much more than a guide. He drove me, filled me with the Chile's history, found restaurants with great food and views and became an essential part of my life. And the penguins? We saw them, an exceptonal experience, reached the base camp of the Osorno Volcano in a snow storm and drove around lakes in the grey drizzle of early spring. Juan shone throughout all of this; what a travelling companion, guide and friend. JAMES BUTLER, ENGLAND

Everything was perfect. The guide was very knowledgeable and the tour itself was super nice and well planned. Michel Vanasse, Canada

On December 2013 we returned from Chile. We choose Touring Chile for once in a life time experience. Our guide was Mr. Juan Sunkel - simply the best. He was able to plan each day in a well organized pace without skipping on any details. His knowledge and passion of each attraction left us wanting to learn more about this country’s rich culture and traditions. We were able to see and experience much more than any of our friends that have traveled on their own or in a large group. It was the most moving and memorable experience we had. We would highly recommend using for anyone, considering visiting Chile. We were more than happy that we had organized Juan, as we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him ,and the knowledge he shared with us. Juan went out of his way to make sure that we got to see what we wanted. On the first day we did Lake LLanquihue circuit & Osorno Volcano, in the evening, we went with him to a very good restaurant he recommended. The following day we travel to Chiloe Island & Penguin Colony - a long day but, we thoroughly enjoyed it very much. On the last day Juan took us to Puerto Montt city tour- wonderful authentic fish market "Angelmo"- we ate the "seviche" salad, and then he drove us to the Airport. Yes, we could have done this all on our own but, we are pleased we shared these days with him. He has a happy personality, very reliable person, speaks very good English and it is a pleasure to be around. We wish him all the best for his future, and hope he could come to visit us.

Robert Thompson | … | 09. mayo 2014

On our recent cruise, we booked a day tour in advance with Juan. He responded very promptly to all our enquires and, before our cruise, sent us photographs of the area. He was waiting for us when we alighted the tender. We had already arranged what we wanted to see and this included the Osorno Volcano. We enjoyed his excellent tour very much. Juan has a very good command of English and was very knowledgeable about the area. He returned us to the ship in plenty of time. There were problems with tenders the morning of our trip because there were three ships in port that day. I would advise anyone booking this trip to get off the ship as early as possible. When we visited the National Park to see the Falls, it was so crowded it was difficult to move. Although we did see the volcano, which is a spectacular sight, we did not have time to go up it, just in case there was a problem getting back. Gillian & Robert Thompson St Albans, UK Again, thank you and best regards, Robert Thompson

May Leung | … | 07. mayo 2014

Juan gave us (group of 14) an amazing tour of Puerto Montt, very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of time to enjoy the beautiful areas. He managed to arrange a very great lunch for us at a resort which was not usually open to the public. Thank you Juan. All the best to you and family. May (Canada)

David Hill | … | 23. abril 2014

My wife and I had a great day with Juan. The scenery was very beautiful -particularly the views of and from the Osorno volcano. Juan looked after us very well with a good itinerary, plenty of information and a good command of English. David & Jill, Australia (Travelled in December 2013 as a couple).

Hallo Juan, Leider war unser Ausflug sehr kurz und wir hätten gerne noch mehr gesehen. Nachdem wir Valparaiso und vor allem Santiago gesehen haben, sind wir sicher, dass Ihre Gegend die schönste von Chile war. Sollten wir wieder nach Chile kommen, werden wir auf jeden Fall Puerto Montt und vor allem Frutillar wieder besuchen. Dann aber wesentlich länger. Wir sind zu Hause vor wenigen Tagen angekommen und müssen erst alles erlebte verarbeiten, insbesondere meine Fotos und Filme. Ich denke, dass ich auch nochmals in die Antarktis fahre, dann aber mit mehr Zeit. Nochmals vielen Dank für die informative Führung von Ihnen. Wir waren sehr zufrieden und wünschen Ihnen weiterhin alles Gute und viel Erfolg im neuen Jahr. Wenn wir wieder auftauchen, melden wir uns bei Ihnen. Viele Grüsse aus Spanien Fam.

Hallo Juan, schön von Ihnen zu hören! Wir sind wieder gut in Santiago angekommen und planen bereits unsere weiteren Ausflüge. Aber Chile ist so ein schönes Land mit so vielen interessanten Ecken; da ist es einfach unmöglich alles sehen zu können! Anbei schicken wir Ihnen noch ein paar unserer Fotos von Puerto Varas. Es war wirklich ein toller Ausflug mit Ihnen! Liebe Grüße, Melanie & Tobias

Gertjan van de Klashorst | … | 15. enero 2014

Dear Juan, Thanks for the mail and the nice pictures. Not so much snow when we were up the volcano Osorno! We enjoyed our trip very much. Our driver was very knowledgeable and we had a very good day with him. I must say the chocolate beer I had with my lunch was not really to my liking, but for the rest we enjoyed it. I have no suggestions on what else there is to see, as our time ashore was very limited. Myself I like to see birds, maybe that is something to look into? Maybe go more into the mountains and see the Lammergeier etc? Maybe we return one day to seen more of the continent and less water? It is a long way form Germany, but one never knows. Best regards, and thanks again for your help Gertjan van de Klashorst Kranenburg, Germany (cruiseship Zaandam-January 06/2014-Puerto Montt)

Hallo Juan, vielen Dank für die tolle Tour durch den Nationalpark und auf den Osorno. Es sind bleibende Eindrücke, die du in den wenigen Stunden in und um Puerto Montt vermitteln konntest! Durch die Gespräche konnte ich auch eine Vorstellung über das Leben in Chile bekommen. Hervorragender Tourguide!! Nur zu empfehlen. Bis zum nächsten mal.

Sehr geehrter Herr Sunkel, Eben fiel mir wieder Ihre Visitenkarte in die Hände, die Sie mir am 12.2. diesen Jahres bei der Fahrt nach den Petrohue Wasserfällen gaben. Ich wollte mich doch einmal melden. Ihr Land hat uns sehr gefallen. Vielen Dank für die ausgezeichnete Betreuung und wir denken öfters wieder an die schöne Zeit in Puerto Montt.

Hello again Juan! Thank you for your mail and nice pictures from Chile!!! We can't forget neither you or your beautiful country. At the moment we are travelling by car trough the western part of Norway witch look very much like Chile. To night we are staying at Norway's oldest Hotel: Walaker Hotel at Solvorn. Maybee you can find it at Internet? Take care Best wishes from Marit & Andreas S

Martijn Domburg | | 02. junio 2013

Dear Mr. Sunkel, You gave us an excellent excursion (we think better than a group excursion of the cruise-ship). It is no problem for you to explain everythig in English and German. You know very much about the surrounding and gave us a great service. The excursion began in Puerto Montt and the first stop was the Petrohué waterfalls. You drove past the touristic point because several busses parked there. It was too busy. A minute later you showed us another beautiful point to see the Petrohué waterfalls. It seems a privat place. There were no other touristic people and we had a brilliant view. After that you parked your new car at a place with a beautiful view of the Osorno volcano. Along the Llanquihue lake you drove to the city of roses called Puerto Varas. We had a nice stop in the centre for a short lunch. You recommended a delicious Chilean regional dish. Maybe we will return to this part of Chile in the future and then we hope to see you again for another excursion. Kind regards, Pieter, Irene and Martijn Domburg Holland

Andreas Stray | … | 02. junio 2013

Dear Mr. Sunkel. First thank you again for a wonderful trip and excellent guiding. As we talked about in your car I would like to receive some pictures from the lake, the mountains and volcanos. I hope you have the time to do this. Thank you again in advance. Kind regards, Andreas S. Stray, Norway

Peter Duddy | … | 01. junio 2013

Hello Juan, (Tour summer 2013) It was so nice to have met you and hope we will keep in touch. Have attached 2 websites with regard to the Isle of Man & a few photos of the IOM We had a great day with you in Chile`s Lake District visiting Lake Llanquihue, Puerto Varas and our stay in Frutillar tasting those delicious German-cakes & hope we will meet up again soon and do another tour. Please do add our e-mail of recommendation to your web site. Peter & Ruth Isle Of Man

James Butler | … | 30. mayo 2013

Dear Juan, It was a great time. Our journeys to the penguins on Chiloe, not forgetting the oysters in the Mermaid restaurant in Ancud and the Osorno Volcano in the snow are with me forever. You were a wondeful guide and understood very well what I hoped to accomplish in such short time. You did it all. What stands out is your intuition and knowledge and the truly wonderful time we had together. Hopefully I will be back for more penguins and the Jesuit churches. Regards and all the best, James Butler Dorchester, Dorset United Kingdom (Tours 7-8/11/2012)

Beverly W. 22 JAN 2013 We were a group of 10 Canadians arriving by cruise ship. I was in touch with Juan months before. He offers a nice alternative to the big cruise excursions. He punctually met us at the ship and toured us around in a comfy van for the whole day. He is pleasant and reliable. Thanks Juan.

Karyn Scanlan | … | 27. mayo 2013

karyn S. 25 FEB 2013 My visit with Juan to Puerto Montt and the surrounding districts was fantastic and a highlight of my recent South America cruise. Juan tailored a tour to accommodate my limited mobility and his tour exceeded my expectations. Juan’s local and expert knowledge combined with his warm and friendly personality ensured I enjoyed a comprehensive overview of this amazing region. I would highly recommend his professional guiding service.
