18 DEC
Full day private city tour of Santiago

With your expert local guide you will explore Chile’s capital, nestled in the central valley right below the imposing Andes. This city mixes the country’s “Mapuche” legacy (the natives that inhabited this land during the Pre-Columbian era), Spanish colonial past and the modernity of any thriving city of the world. With guide you will walk its streets, visit its museums, and engage with its architecture to see both the historical and contemporary features that make up the heart of Chile.
Explore the city’s downtown district first. Proceed through the main avenue of the city, Alameda del Libertador General Bernardo O’Higgins, passing by the San Francisco Church, the oldest monument of the country erected in 1568 housing a convent, miraculously withstanding several earthquakes. Then you visit Santa Lucía Hill, where the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia founded the city on February 12th 1541. Descend to the Lastarria Neighborhood, home to quaint cafés, exquisite restaurants and a couple of museums worth visiting (time permitting). From here, you will be taken to the La Moneda Palace, nowadays the neoclassical style government palace, but originally constructed to house the Mint of the Spanish Crown during the 18th century. A few blocks away, walk along Paseo Ahumada until reaching Plaza de Armas (The Main Square) where the Cathedral Church of Santiago, the Central Post Office, National Historical Museum, and the former “Real Audiencia” or Spanish Royal Court are all located. A little further, you cross the Mapocho River and head straight towards the Bellavista Neighbourhood, a lively place, and home to the city’s more vibrant night and artistic life, where pubs, cultural centers and international gastronomy can be found. Then Ascend the San Cristóbal Hill where the famous Virgin Mary statue and where you can enjoy fantastic panoramas of the city.
