Buenos días! We’re starting our Santiago tour in the morning — the best time for enjoying the city and escaping the crowds on public transit. We’ll meet at La Moneda in the Plaza de la Constitucion — an iconic place in Santiago and a popular gathering point for many locals.
From there, we’ll head to the neighbourhood of La Alameda, a place that’s popular with locals thanks to its gorgeous architecture and blending of the old and new city. We’ll explore an area that’s known as the heart and soul of Santiago — and where the city first started and grew into what it is today. Discover sites like the Plaza de Armas and get a feel for what makes this city so great. (Don’t forget your camera — this area is excellent for photos!)
Our first stop will be at one of the best local restaurants we know, who produce mouth-watering new Chilean cuisine. The menu changes every day, so let us surprise you with your dishes!
From there we will walk into the Mercado Central, starring some of the freshest produce in the country. Wander the aisles and watch how locals shop and bargain for the best deal — and maybe even try your own negotiation skills. Best of all, we’re going to eat some typical Chilean dishes! Oooooh yeah. Food is included.
Next, your Santiago tour will lead you to La Vega Central, a local market just on the other side of the Mapocho River. You can find everything you could imagine here, from souvenirs to healing potions — and when we say everything, we mean EVERYTHING!
Our Santiago tour is then going onwards and upwards — literally! We’re taking the Funicular to the top of Cerro San Cristobal. At the top, you’ll have the best view of the city, so keep that camera handy. You’ll want to show off your awe-inspiring photos to everyone back home, right?!
We’ll finish up our Santiago tour in the bohemian Bellavista neighbourhood. A place full of life and arts and crafts. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.

Get in touch if you have any concerns or require more information via the email address or phone number (business hours only) on your voucher.
Closure of sites: The funicular is closed on the first Monday of each month, so if you take the tour on that day, we've got something equally fun for you. On weekends we will not visit the San Cristobal Hill, because of the long lines (we could be waiting in line for up to 2 hours). Instead, we’ll take you to somewhere equally as cool and trendy.
