After meeting your guide at La Mondeda Metro Station, begin your private walking tour of central Santiago. Take a short walk to the governmental palace, La Moneda and Constitution Square. Listen to your guide tell stories about the years during the military coup in Chile linked in this historic area.
Head over to the oldest street in Santiago, New York Street, and visit the commercial center of the city. Afterwards, you'll stroll over to the main square - Plaza de Armas. Here, your guide will provide an introduction to the history of Santiago and provide insight into the importance of this historic place.

Spend about 15-20 minutes at each site during the tour.
Proceed towards the Central Market, where you'll visit the local fish market. Then continue to Santiago´s most traditional bar - La Piojera. Originally called "Restaurant Santiago Antiguo," La Piojera took its name - The Fleahouse - as it resonated with the locals due to the president's reported exclamation in 1922, "And I have been brought to this fleahouse?"

I was not impressed with the scope of knowledge. Once we asked questions beyond her standard presentation there was not a lot she could add. Also I guess we were expecting more sites of interest.
When we first arrived in Santiago we felt a bit lost, so fortunate we had booked this tour! This was a great tour that really opened up the city for us. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and spoke good English.
