After receiving an email a couple of days before the tour we were slightly concerned that it may not take place but as it turned out we needn't have been as we were the only two people on the tour. Our guide Eugenio was extremely knowledgeable about Santiago and went into lots of detail about the city and also the political and financial situation in Chile. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants an overview of Santiago
This was ou first time in Chile. Our guide was Claudio. He picked us up at our hotel exactly on time. The tour was s great overview of Santiago. It included Santa Lucia, the Presidents palace with changing of the guard, and Plaza des Armes. Overall, we saw enough that we felt comfortable touring on our own after this tour.
This really is a great way to see the highlights of Santiago. The tour guide Fransisco couldn't have been friendlier, more enthusiastic and knowledgeable.. We were here for just two nights prior to joining a cruise so very limited time to see the city. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our tour gave us a flavor of the city. We were able to get lots of information about places we could visit so we could tailor the rest of our time in Santiago more efficiently. Gabriel was very knowledgable and personable.
Excellent tour. We saw all we wanted to see in a non rushed way and even stopped for an ice cream on the hill in the city. The guide / driver was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The vehicle was comfortable and he even helped with my mobility scooter.
Christian you were fabulous. We loved the time spent in the park donated to the city, and also the park with the flamingos and two adorable little boys who ran up to us and asked for 'an abrazo'. I looked them over quickly pickpockets perhaps, but then noticed that there was a man with a group of children and they said he was their teacher. What a shame we did not have a camera with us at the time - it wasn't only the hug they asked for but also a kiss! Two little lady killers in the making!? They were totally adorable. Gauchos dancing in the street was an added attraction.
