My husband and I managed to get by pretty well on our way into Santiago, by bus. Since we didn't speak Spanish we went with the crowd, and got off the bus when it seemed like everyone else did. Luckily, when we went to get the luggage the driver sent us back to the bus, and we finally got to the right terminal in Santiago. Now on our trip home, our flight was late at night, and we chose to go with Viatour. What a delight, no confusion at all due to our lack of language skills! Here we had a driver and our own English speaking guide that held our hand all the way to the check in counter. Plus, he answered a lot of questions and shared a lot of info on his city. Luckily, he was there to help, as the airline we were scheduled to take was flying under a different name. I'm sure we could of worked it out, but we we would of fumbled along, and wouldn't of had sure a pleasant experience.
As a Californian, I can say it's like going to San Diego Safari Park in the dark, taking the tram, wandering the trails at night, and seeing animals along the way. However, the variety of foods at the buffet and entertainment, (ie: fire eaters) reminds me, I'm having a fab vacation in Singapore
Spent a cloudy and rainy day in Montserrat; but it didn't dampen the visit. It's quite impressive. Great gift shops.
