I really enjoyed this tour. Fran was especially helpful to my companion, who had some difficulty walking and maneuvering steps. She also added a stop at a jeweler's so I could buy some things.
Our guide was friendly and knowledgable. It was just us and the guide and a driver. The tour was a nice change from the sort of tour where you are just a wallet to be sold to tourist traps. We saw attractions that had lots of local Chileans - we weren't taken to rip-offs. Our guide explained the history of Santiago in the context of the places we saw and when we asked he recommended a good empanada place and a great seafood restaurant. It was refreshing to hear a local view of the historical events that our guide lived through, without the spin that we typically get from the authorities. We got a really good overview of the city with an emphasis on things that we could see and do on our own in the following days.
We highly recommend this tour.
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.
these bike tours are wonderful! Loved morning market tour so much we went on afternoon city tour.
Do both and you have covered a lot. Then go back to museums/ restaurants etc. which your guides will recommend.
Very good and informative tour. Our guide was excellent. Recommend this to anyone

Christian was very knowledgeable and was engaging in his descriptions of the city. Would definitely recommend this small bus tour.
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.
Amazing city tour! Very friendly and informative guide who spoke excellent english.
Absolutely the best tour. My guide was very knowledgeable and gave a wonderful commentary. I would more than recommend this tour. Mary S
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!
Fran Pardo was the best guide ever. She had a love for the city and intimate knowledge of its history and architecture. This was an outstanding tour.
Wonderful!! Great guide and great driver. Learned many facts and information. I would use Viator again for the service.
Excellent tour guide (and driver) we really enjoyed learning all about Santiago.
Ricardo Cerpa, our guide, is extremely knowledgeable. He has a personal interest in the history of not only Chile, but many other countries as well. He was able to relate political and historical facts about Santiago and Chile to events in the U.S., where we are from. I highly recommend Viator.
Great guide. Very knowledgeable. Easy t o understand and friendly.
Excellent tour. Guide and driver were very friendly and very informative. We would certainly use you
Again. Many thanks.
The guide and driver were great and we saw the real Santiago. Well done.
Great tour and great guide - made special walking tour around the cathedral and the information she provided was truly terrific - she learned about my interest in architecture right away and always pointed out interesting areas of architecture - making sure we got to the "Wall Street" area -
