John Gottlieb Bracchi

This is a charming and wonderful man from Santiago Chile. He was our tour guide on Saint Patrick's Day in Chile this year. It was a fabulous tour that made Chile one of my favorite places in the world. Not only is he a great guide but he's a charming and delightful host! He got into the spirit of the day and we had an amazing exerience in Chile as a result.

John was our Guide also and he was as good as you can get. It helped that Chile is so beautiful. My wife and I are from Ann Arbor, Michigan USA and no doubt Chile's Maipo Valley and river with its White Water Rafting and Horses amongst Mountains are not to be beat. That painting is a likeness of his kindness and fatherly approach yet he is a bit younger looking. As I remember it he is my age of 62. He is a great story teller and very accommodating. And has a Great Van to Cruise the Countryside.

we were two couples from Israel, doing a 4 weeks Tour in South America. It was great but the last two days in Chile with John, were unforgeteble!!! I am a guide myself and I must say - John is the best guide I ever met. He is the best Ambasador of Chile!
