This was a great half day city bike tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and watched out for our safety. Riding thru the neighborhood, seeing street art, going by the entrance to the mount christobol park, heading over to the central market. The market was amazing and we saw many parts of it. Ending with some lovely fresh strawberry drink and soppapillas. Highly recommend it. The staff also gave us directions on how to take the subway and what other neighborhoods and sight to see. Would take another tour again if back in Santiago.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The bike fitout was easy and we were given water and sunscreen. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and we had fun on the way. The guides also worked hard to make sure the whole group was safe at any crossings or intersections. It is worth bearing in mind that the trip is only around half cycling, with the rest on foot through the markets, learning about different markets, histories etc and trying some food and drink. That suited us perfectly but may not suit those who want a full on 3 hour cycle tour.

Super nice guys who give you interesting and additional information about the city and the history over Chili. To learn the town you have to do this.

Encouraged to go on market tours when I travel in the future. All thanks to this bike tour! (Felipe was an awesome guide!)

Good range of places and subjects covered . Safe cycling
