We are to be in Santiago for 4 days next March. We want to tour the city as well as a countryside tour(vineyards?). We will be walking in the city unless we really have to do otherwise while getting a local guide/tour to take us into the country. So.. From a traveling perspective what part of town is a good location ? And any recommendations for smaller hotels? Our Spanish is currently zero but we hope to pickup some rudimentary Spanish before getting to Santiago.
