based on 42 reviews

We had booked a 6 hour walking tour. Our guide Camilo Pereda came to our Hotel Loreto in Recoleta on time, where we calmly discussed our wishes and suggestions. He is Chilean and speaks very well-kept German without an accent. Although 6 hours appeared long in our planning, they passed very entertaining. We were never in a hurry, but always had enough time to look at everything interesting for us, to get explained and to ask. Whether it was the various market halls nearby, government business districts, Ground Zero, where the protests began with the appropriate symbols on the walls, artists' quarters, a trip to Terraza Bellavista, ... For us, an all-round successful day. Also great were the tips for our next day in Valparaiso and how to get there inexpensively, by metro to Pajarito and from there by bus in 90 minutes. Highly recommended and a real contrast to Santiago.

The process from booking to dropping us off at our hotel at the end was done without fuss, and hassle free. Our guide was engaging and our driver was professional. We thought the vineyard guide was at times a little hesitant, but was able to provide a reasonable overview of the workings of the vineyard. Surprised the vineyard only offered shipping to the USA as we would have liked to order some cases for Europe.

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.

A wonderful day with many interesting impressions. Everything went perfectly.

Really enjoyed our cycle tour, very informed guide who was a lot of fun.
