Split into 2 sessions (which can be purchased individually). Morning focussed on the huge markets and is split 60/40 cycling / exploring markets. Great insight to the local way of life. Afternoon focussed on the political development and current state of affairs - much more time in the saddle and don’t miss the statue to Salvador Allende next to the presidential palace The guys running this tour are exceptional, look after you and provide some surprises which I won’t spoil on each session. Thoroughly recommended

Diego was a great tour guide! The ride was easy enough for all skill levels, mostly flat. We were mostly on bike lanes and parks, and when we rode in the street it felt safe. Seeing the markets was fun and whenever we said we were interested in buying something, the guide knew which stands to take us to. Would highly recommend this tour! A great value.

Everyone should experience a local tour with local. Diego did an amazing job showing us local life in Santiago. I loved the experience.

Extraordinary. The guide made it very enjoyable and interesting and attractive. We were interested from start to finish.

Thanks from a great and immersive tour. Would highly recommend.
