What to expect
Meet your guide at your centrally located Santiago hotel prior to your departure time. Climb aboard a comfortable minivan and begin your tour of the city in its historic core, comprised of 19th-century neighborhoods and French-influenced architecture. Then, head to the presidential palace at La Moneda, whose white neoclassical structure and swath of Chilean flags take up a full city block; learn the surprising history of the building from the 18th century through the present. People watch at the popular spots of Plaza de Armas Square and Santa Lucia Hill, before touring the modern neighborhoods of Santiago Providencia, Las Condes, and Vitacura. Transfer back to your hotel at the end of your tour.

Half day tour of Santiago
Feb 2020
This tour was a good overview of the city and allowed us to see the main sights by car - and some by foot. We got a summary of the culture and history- and a good review of the current problems.

Our guide/driver, Leo, was relaxed, accommodating (stopped so we could get a coffee), knowledgable about Santiago complete with dates, and an excellent driver (no tension in the car). His tour provided us with an overview of the whole city, not just the historical core. The city is beautiful and if we hadn’t taken this tour our impression might be different. He stopped at key sites giving us time to get out of the car and see the site (eg. Cathedral, Santa Lucía Hill, etc). Highly recommend this 1/2 day tour in a very comfortable auto.

Half day city tour
Jan 2020 • Family
We enjoyed the tour of the city. Our guide Carolina was informative and interesting. The van was clean and cool. Unfortunately it was Sunday so a lot of shops And businesses were closed and we did not get a typical feel for the city. However, traffic was light. Good overall way to get oriented to the city.

Enjoyable Comprehensive City Tour
Oct 2019 • Couples
Gabrielle , our guide was an absolute font of information. Told us loads about the country’s and city's History. Was perfectly punctual, car was very comfortable and clean. Communication prompt. Gabrielle has a great sense of humour and his English is perfect. We had adequate free time at various spots and did not feel rushed. If you have half a day to take in the major sights , this is the trip for you.

Excellent tour
Went on this tour yesterday. Was an excellent way to see Santiago at the start of our trip. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable with excellent English as he had lived in the US. We saw all the highlights and he was incredibly informative about all things not just in Chile but South America in general. We ended up just the 2 of us on this tour. So very private tour indeed. Highly recommended, especially if you do not have a lot of time in Santiago.

We had a lovely time with Reuben our guide. He picked us up directly from the flat we were staying. He allowed us to take our time and was really friendly and full of information. We went around in a comfortable minivan that fit a small group of six of us. We had a lot of varied experiences and fit in so much! Lots of great pictures, views and fun activities. Very much recommended.
