Fantastic tour! My guide was Karla and she just loved to show off her quarter and city! She can tell you so much about the local history - just ask! :-) I went on a Sunday morning when the streets were really quiet - I found that very good because you can relax and look around and don’t have to worry about running someone over. :-) Can highly recommend it!!

nice bike tour through the city

With green bicycles you drive through the streets and learn about the districts you drive through. There is also a stop at a house by Pablo Neruda. The market visit on the tour is exciting and you immerse yourself in the world of the city's inhabitants.
