What to Expect
Explore Chile’s electric capital on this private half-day tour of Santiago. As a private tour the itinerary can be adjusted to suit your preferences, but you will be taken to all the major sights of the colonial era, as well as newer and more exclusive neighborhoods, and streets full of artists and cafés.
The city is an eclectic mixture of colonial history and modernity, and starting your journey at Alameda, the main avenue that crosses the city from east to west, you will visit San Francisco Church and Convent, the oldest building in Santiago, and the Santa Lucía Hill, where the city was founded.
Explore Downtown Santiago, where long-standing aristocratic mansions are now used as private universities and embassies. Return to Alameda to view Moneda Palace, seat of the Chilean government, and cross town to reach Plaza de Armas, the city’s heart and soul, and location of the impressive Cathedral.
Visit the Mapocho neighborhood, home of the Mercado Central Fish Market, where you can try some authentic ceviche, served with delicious Chilean wine. Move on to the beautiful Forestal Park, a traditional meeting place for street artists, cultural activities, and home to the Fine Arts Museum.
Cross over to the famous Bellavista neighborhood, a former indigenous village, and now the hottest nightlife district in Santiago. Take in panoramic views of Santiago Valley from the summit of Santa Lucia Hill, and end with a visit to Barrio Alto to see the high concentration of exclusive and modern buildings.
