This was a great personal introduction to Santiago, which is a wonderful city for four of us traveling together. From our pick-up at our in-town hotel, we learned from Carol and Rodrigo about the city and country history, saw the major sites government, old churches, old homes and gardens of times gone by, museums, and learned about the development of Chile from the indigenous peoples to the Europeans who came in the 1500s. We walked some and drove around some it was a nice mix of being out but avoiding steep hill climbs. It provided enough of an overview to later explore in more depth on our own. We enjoyed it so much, two of us booked a separate private day trip to nearby Valparaiso and the wine country also highly recommended on our return to the city. We found the Chilean people to be very friendly and helpful. We felt very safe. Carol and Rodrigo both had excellent English skills, and were eager to share their country with us.

There were only two of us on this tour. Very intimate and took us to places throughout Santiago and plenty of time to enjoy each stop and walk around the various stops. This is a recommended orientation tour for anyone new to Santiago

We only had two nights in Santiago so wanted to see as much as possible. Our Viator 3 hour highlights tour was absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend.
