After hotel pickup, your Santiago city tour begins with a look at some of the city's main attractions. Visit places such as Club Hípico de Santiago (the horse track), Plaza de la Constitucion, and the República neighborhood, and walk around the civic center to see La Moneda Palace.
Listen to your guide's commentary about life in Chile as you explore city streets, and hear how some of the historical buildings are used. You'll visit Plaza de Armas, see Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, pass by the Central Post Office (Museo Postal), and see the National Museum of Natural History and City Hall. Plus, check out some sculptures.
Continue on to the top of Santa Lucia Hill (Cerro Santa Lucia) to learn about Chile's aboriginal culture, and enjoy a view of the city before heading a bit north to Barrio Bellavista. Check out San Cristobal Hill (Cerro San Cristobal), one of the highest points in the city which you'll ascend by funicular. At the top, enjoy a view of the surrounding area and the Andes.
Next, visit the financial district to go up Sky Costanera, one of the tallest buildings in Latin America, where you can take in a 360-degree view from the 72nd floor. After this, head 45 minutes south of the city for a 3-course lunch at a country restaurant, where you'll enjoy Chilean dishes (typically meat and salad). Then you have your choice of a winery to visit: Santa Rita Winery or Concha y Toro Winery. Whichever winery you visit, you'll take a tour and enjoy three wine tastings. Spend a little over an hour here before your tour ends with return to your pickup point or a central location.
Please note: Santa Rita Winery is not available on Mondays.
