“Decent Enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

After having a marvellous experience in Buenos Aires with one of these kinds of tours we gave this tour a go in Santiago. Santiago may not have the same charm as BA, and the tour did not really help us fall in love with the city. The day was grey, the guide seemed to be apothetic with the tour, and no one ever really developed a positive energy for the tour. Perhaps a good way to get your bearings but not recommended

“Not Free, Not That Great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

We had built up high expectations for the tour because of the excellent reviews and becasue it was so close to where we were staying in santiago. First thing that should be clearer is that the tour is not free but instead they were very pushy with the amount of money you should pay for the tour. We had Felipe who seemed like a nice guy, wasnt really interested in talking to the group and seemed to be rattling the information off to ge the tour over with. We were a bit offput by the price and his attitude and decided to leave around half way through.

“The best of Santiago in 4 hours!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

We randomly met Franco at the Plaza de Armas right before he started the tour. We decided to join the walk and it was great!! He was very knowledgeable, funny, and pleasant. We were so impressed with his tour that it inspired us to extend our time in Santiago.

“Great Tour Very Interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Our guide Franco was excellent with the perfect balance of information, history, facts and humour. Best way to get to know the city on arrival and it finishes in the lively neighbourhood of Bellavista. Also stops in a great café for lunch. Excellent English
