An exquisite experience from start to finish! Our guide and new friend Leo showed us the city in a close way, we learned about its culture, its history and we learned about sociopolitical aspects that make Chile and Santiago what they are today. At the end we asked him for a recommendation on where to eat and drink and he showed us just what we wanted. Getting to know a city in this way is the best thing to do. We are very happy and recommend it 100%.

A great way to experience Santiago and get a lay of the land on your first couple of days in the city. I highly recommend Caroline, who was super knowledgeable and fun and easy going. They craft the experience based on your interest, so a great way to enjoy and take in the city.

An absolute top experience that you definitely have to do on a first visit to the city. We didn't regret for a second that we booked this, on the contrary we are even happy that we were able to enjoy this for 5 hours. The tour is highly recommended and our tour guide Leonardo was great. Kudos for the start in town and also to Leonardo for his top notch information. You shouldn't do the tour for less than 4 hours because then you would lose a lot of impressions that are worthwhile. Thanks for the great day. :-)))
