Overall rating

This was a great way to experience Santiago, I would have never taken the subway by myself or visited downtown. The lunch was very good. I wish my guide’s English was better but I was able to understand most of what he said. Unfortunately he was not feeling well the day of our tour, which was a bit of a disappointment for both of us. Overall money well spent.
