What You Can Expect

Santiago City Sightseeing Tour

Santiago City Sightseeing Tour

After hotel pick-up, travel through the principal streets of Santiago in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan, accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. Pass the Moneda Palace, the current seat of the Government, and absorb its neoclassical splendor before continuing onto the ambient Plaza de Armas to admire the filigreed spire of the Cathedral. Swing by the captivating Museum of National History and marvel at the architectural prowess of the Central Post Office.  

Next, visit the verdant Parque Forest, a sprawling city park based on the design of Paris’ Champs-Elysees. Enjoy the gorgeous greenery and scattered sculptures before venturing to the bohemian neighborhood of Bellavista, home to resident artists and poets, to admire the street art. Then, ascend to the summit of Saint Lucia hill to admire panoramic vistas of the dramatic Andes mountain range. 

Conclude your tour with a visit to the handicraft village of Los Graneros de Alba; browse bespoke boutiques for unique souvenirs before returning to your hotel. This attraction is closed on Mondays, where an alternative attraction is visited.

Our tour was excellent. We started with a tour of the different districts by car and then went on to walk around the old part of the city. Our guide was amazingly informative and showed us places that we would never have found for ourselves. We would not hesitate to go on another Viator guided tour wherever we are in the world. We highly recommend the company.

Do both and you have covered a lot. Then go back to museums/ restaurants etc. which your guides will recommend.

It was the perfect tour for us. We had an overnight flight to Santiago with a one day stay and this afternoon tour gave us the opportunity to see the city. Not stressful, convenient, just 4 of us in a van and a terrific guide.

This tour accomplished what it described as an overview of central Santiago very nicely without rushing any of the four of us. Our guide took time to answer questions and gave a fine overview of Santiago's history and neighborhoods.

This tour was wonderful! Our guide Fransisca and driver Miguel were both delightful. Fransica spoke great English and her knowledge of the city was impressive! The first half of the tour was a walking tour of Santiago's historic square, financial district, national bank, and more. The second half of the tour was a drive around Providencia, Las Condes and up to Santa Lucia Hill. We were able to take great pictures around the city and learn so much about Santiago. The hotel pick up was on time and the tour lasted about four hours. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Chile and I recommend it to all!
