Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso Day Trip from Santiago

Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso Day Trip from Santiago

Depart for the central coast traveling through the valleys of Curacavi and Casablanca. The latter is known for its recent success as a wine producing area.

Continue to the coast and visit the beach area of Renaca and the town of Vina del Mar, known as the Garden City for its pretty parks and flower lined streets. Visit the Gaming Casino and the coastal road.

In the afternoon continue to the picturesque port of Valparaiso built in the 16th-century on a total of 43 hills which are reached by narrow windy streets, staircases and a series of lifts (funiculars). This area has been declared by UNESCO as patrimony of humanity due to its eclectic architecture and urban development.

You may wish to visit the Pablo Neruda Museum which contains some of the poets collections, specifically related to the sea. The Museum is situated on one of the hills overlooking the bay offering fantastic sea views.

At the end of the day you have the choice to return to Santiago with the group, or stay in Valparaiso for a little longer making your own way back to the city at your leisure.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

This was a wonderful introduction to some of the "wine valleys" and to the Pacific coast! Our guide Daniel looked after everything very well and was very knowledgeable about our stops and the area of our tour, including a wonderful lunch stop! Our driver Marlene was excellent as well. Gracias!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

The tour was more comprehensive than we expected.
The driver Marco and guide Christian were both very knowledgable and helpful.
It was great that we had the car to ourselves and went up into the hills for a magnificent view over the highway, toll roads and vineyards and surrounding hills.
