At Miles & Smiles Chile …
Our goal is simple. We want to provide you with top quality service that is friendly and safe while showing you the best of this amazing country. So we show you the real Chile, divulging secrets that only a native can know. We also believe in giving back and so we continually do so, sending a percentage of our profits to help grassroot organizations and other initiatives working to keep Chile clean, safe and beautiful. Our business takes social responsibility very seriously so we always keep business local and support the small businesses around us.
We offer private tours from your base in either Santiago or Valparaiso to all of our favorite sites from winetasting trips and mountain horse treks right through to ski packages, birdwatching and hiking. We are more than willing to customize a trip for you (fun for children is a popular one) and we also offer a driver service to help you get to all your business meetings with someone who is punctual, responsible and well-versed in driving the city streets (please email for more information).
We pride ourselves on our local knowledge and accessibility – and all with our signature smiling service! So lets get ready to make your Chilean adventure happen!

Thank you to all our wonderful customers who book with us
“My friend who lives in Santiago highly recommended that we use Miles & Smiles for our airport transfers, and we are very happy that we did. Luis is a great guy – friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. His vehicle had plenty of space for our luggage, and it was air-conditioned (Santiago’s 37 degrees C was a big adjustment from -10C at home!). We also scheduled a guided day trip to Valparaiso with Luis. He customized the tour for us, so we got to visit the places in Valparaiso that we really wanted to go. If you are planning to visit Santiago, we highly recommend that you rely on Luis and Helen of Miles & Smiles for both airport transfers and personalized tours. We will definitely use their services again.”

“Luis went above and beyond to help us when we arrived and our bags and dogs were really delayed. Super friendly, punctual, responsible and trustworthy. He wait and helped us in every way in a very distressful moment. I highly recommend their service. Thank you so much! We couldn’t have made it without his help.”

“We had another great day trip with Luis to Cajon del Maipo. As Luis is an excellent driver we always felt safe with him at the wheel. He pointed out and told us about historical sites and we could stop whenever we wanted to take pix and stretch our legs. The dam was spectacular and the scenery on the way breathtaking.”
– Richard Lane
“We used Miles & Smiles for an airport pickup and drop off as well as three day tours. We couldn’t have been happier. Luis was excellent and went above and beyond what we expected. We have already booked Miles & Smiles again and we would thoroughly recommend them!”

“My friend and I reserved a taxi transfer from Santiago Centro to the Airport through Miles and Smiles and could not have been more pleased. Even though it was super early, Luis was outside (bonus points for arriving early!) waiting for us when we came down to the street. He was very helpful with our bags and got us to the airport within 25 minutes. I was so impressed with the punctuality and service so early in the morning. I 100% recommend using this service for transfers, tours, anything. Very friendly and very reliable.”
