Full description
No trip to Chile is complete without visiting the colorful coastal cities of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar. Your tour begins with hotel pickup followed by an hour and a half drive to the Chilean coastline. Start the drive along the coast in Concón, known for its seaside restaurants and surf shops. Pass by the impressive Concón Sand Dunes with their panoramic views of Valparaiso Harbor. The tour continues past the popular beach town of Reñaca, where you can usually spot sea lions lying on the coastal rocks. Then, drive through Viña del Mar, Chile’s “Garden City,” where you will see the city’s landmarks, including the Flower Clock and Casino, a “Moai” statue from Easter Island, as well as the city’s pristine beaches. Afterward, reach your main destination, Plaza Sotomayor, the heart of Valparaiso. Then, take an old funicular up to Concepcion and Alegre Hills. Bohemian and colorful, Valparaiso’s maze of hills has long inspired poets and writers. YDiscover something new at every turn – a gem of a building, a remarkable art gallery, or a little gastronomic ‘find.’ Revel in the architecture of this UNESCO World Heritage City. Stroll along its narrow streets, climb its endless staircases, and enjoy panoramic views from its many lofty lookout points.

Beautiful area and our guide was truly special. Sean speaks perfect English and shared so much information with us. He even took pictures of our group with his own camera and emailed them to us. Exceptional!

It was great to enjoy both natural beauty, as well as interesting architecture along with street paintings. Our tour guide, Daniel from Chile Dream Tours, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. One thing to note is that is was 15 degrees C cooler on the Pacific coast than it was in Santiago. Fortunately we had warm enough clothes with us.
