Santiago Airport to Valparaíso

Hi wondering if anyone could advise. Have heard that there is a new Bus from the Airport to Vina del mar with a stop at Valparaiso having trouble finding info on it. Would prefer to get it directly at the Airport rather than have to get a taxi to the bus terminal.
Thanks .

There are only 2 a day, 9:50 am and 14:30.

Otherwise, almost as simple, take either airport bus to Pajaritos bus/metro station - should be the first stop - buy your ticket to Viña and go directly there rather than going through Valparaiso as well.

The airport buses may stop on the highway but wait til you turn off in to a station.

We needed a Santiago/Valpo transfer last fall and decided, to hire a private guide/driver. We arrived in the morning, and figured we can use the trip to Valpo to make some winery stops and do some sight seeing. After doing some homework, I found a guide who offered this, so we went with it. We had an amazing day, with an amazing guide. It was worth every penny.

On the return to Santiago we took the bus. That too was pretty efficient. We took a taxi from the bus station to our hotel (we spent a night in Santiago).

We used Michael from The German Pirates - Tours in Valparaíso Chile He was great. Basically dedicated the entire day to us. Took us to some wineries (we didn't tour, but we did taste), lunch and some off-the-beaten-path places we would have never even known about. We did not do one of the formal tours he lists on the website (which were not set up when we originally booked), He was totally flexible.

I assume you toured wineries in the Casablanca Valley. Nice area. We loved Valparaiso and our wonderful hilltop hotel, Hotel Casa Higueres. Enjoy Chile.
