Overview
Explore Valparaiso on this 3-hour walking tour, visiting the main highlights of the city.
What to Expect
Your guide will meet you at Plaza Sotomayor, in front of the National Council for Culture and the Arts. The tour begins with an introduction about the city, revealing its fascinating past as a commercial port, which is still nowadays one of the most important in South America. Walk by the old aduana - nowadays part of the Navy Zone of the Chilean Army - and see the heritage buildings surrounding the square, all built in the French style of the seventeenth century.

Ascend to Cerro Alegre and Cerro Conecpción by the original funiculars - all declared national heritage sites - and get the best views of the city and the ocean from the viewpoints. This area was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2002, for its coloured houses perched at crazy angles connected by a gigantic labyrinth of streets, long staircases and lookout points. Here you'll find plenty of boutique hotels, restaurants, bookstores and handicraft shops.

Then, descend to downtown by funiculars and explore the old town, filled with beautiful architecture and narrow streets. End the tour by taking a trolley bus ride through the port area: this local public transport is considered a rolling heritage, being the second-oldest transportation service in South America, operating since 1952.
