This has to be one of the most interesting tours we have had with Viator. Our guide took us right inside the markets of Santiago with a complete and thorough explanation of all that we saw. Food was great too!
Our tour guide made all the difference! She was so knowledgeable about her topics and I certainly got to enjoy all the local delicious Chilean staples. She even brought us to a traditional bar run by a family with their own secret recipe of Cola de Mono.
My favorites were the empanadas and the sopaipillas!
A truly wonderful tour!!!
Excellent tour with Fabian who spoke wonderful English and was a most gracious host with superb knowledge of the local food and drink. Highly recommended.
Small-group is right, on our tour it was just the two of us, talk about individual attention to detail! Our guide Alviro was a delight and he walked us through the various parts of the market, stopping to sample local foods and he provided stories along the way. As a warning, do not eat before this tour, you get lots of food to enjoy. We made the mistake of having breakfast about an hour and a half before so we only grazed the food. The scallop empanada was amazing at our final stop. This is lots of fun to see a market up-close and personal!!
Excellent overview of the food scene in Santiago. Helen was a wonderful tour guide !
We loved this tour and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Santiago.
We enjoyed our day, but we visited too many markets that were pretty much the same. I would suggest more variety. Our favorite thing was Mote con Huesillo, and delicious, refreshing drink made with peach juice, a whole peach, and barley.
