  • El ascensor y las vistas muy bonitas... Pero los alrededores con mucha inseguridad. Abrieron mi auto y robaron nuestras pertenencias. Habia carabineros en la zona e igual sucedió éste hecho. No corran el riesgo de estacionar su auto en los alrededores del ascensor.
  • Un servicio de ascensor super barato, por tan solo 100 pesos (15 centavos) puedes tener la linda experiencia de subir por un ascensor típico de Valparaíso. Llegando arriba tienes una tienda de vinos y souvenirs y un mirador. Una experiencia para contar.
