The tour could not have been better! The guide arrively on time at my hotel and brought a mini van and a driver. They took me to all the places advertised and more, and were both very nice and accommodating. I had a wonderful time.

Very good tour. Our guide and driver were awesome. Half day tour, we were able to walk in the center, and go to San Cristóbal, which was very nice. In the end, the guide dropped us at the Mercado Central and we had a Centolla. It was a nice day.

I had a wonderful tour of Santiago thanks to my tour guide Christian. I learned so much, and had the opportunity to go to the top of Metropolitan Park to see the Virgin Mary Statue. The view of Santiago, the Andes, etc. were incredible! Christian even helped me exchange some American dollars for Pesos while in town. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone completely new to Santiago!

This tour was conducted by Gladys Riquelme and her driver,Adolpho on behalf of VIATOR.

From beginning to the end of the afternoon,it was a delight to get to know Gladys and Santiago City.
It was an excellent lesson in the history and geography of this wonderful city.If Gladys and Adolpho are examples of typical Sanitago citizens,then Chile is truly blessed !

Nothing was too much trouble for Gladys so please forward our personal thanks to her if possible.
