A great way to see the city

We had the best tour guide, a professional actor, with excellent English and a passion for the city. Great stories and behind the scene tips on where to eat and what to do.

Santiago is amazing to walk, because the streets are large, there is the park in the middle of main avenue, what connect all the important districts. And if you are tired, you take the subway and you reach all places. If you have a map you can known everywhere!

Wonderful way to gain a good insight into the country, its history and peoples. A long tour with plenty of shady stops and a lunch break. Franco's passion for his country meant there was not a moment of boredom. The stray dog that has been accompanying Franco for 5 years and his information about how the community cares for abandoned... More

We experienced a very informative walking tour of Santiago with Valentina. It was 4 hours and covered many areas of the City. Valentina was very knowledgeable and we learned much about the City and its its history.

Was not bored for a moment and enjoyed all. Thing to work on: lunch place could be better and less expensive + must see tips from... More

Felipe was a knowledgeable tour guide and gave good local recommendations along the way. Tour covers all main highlights in a good amount of time. 30-min bathroom and snack break in middle of 3-4 hr walking tour was also helpful.

I overslept and missed the morning tour. It was a hot day and I wasn't sure that I wanted to walk through the city in the heat. However from the moment I met our guide, Felipe, I knew this was a good plan. We did an extensive walking tour in the heat, but we walked slowly and the fascinating history... More

The City Tour is a great introduction to Santiago. Our guide, Felipe, was interesting, entertaining, informative, highly enthusiastic and passionate about Santiago and you couldn't help but feel this as well. The tour is 4 hours long but very easy walking.
