Day in Santiago
Rhiannon_D
, Mar 2020
We were stuck in Santiago when our cruise was cancelled. We did this tour to fill up a day before a flight back to the UK. It was very good. We saw a lot of the city and heard a lot about the history and the current challenges in Chile. Jaime the tour guide was very knowledgeable and the driver managed to pick us up very quickly at key points.

City Tour with Jaime

This tour was great! The tour leader was Jaime and the driver Francisco were very helpful and led a great tour. Jaime provided excellent information about Santiago while keeping his own personal opinions about politics to a minimum. Jaime also provided additional information for other area tours, info on how to get around town during the protests, and info on other activities since the museums are closed on Mondays.

First time in Santiago

A great tour and good value for money. Jamie and Eduardo were brilliant. The mini bus drop off and pick up while we walked around various points of interest was slick and very efficient - no waiting. Only down side was what appears to be the obligatory stop at the jewellery shop but no real pressure from the owners to purchase so a minor inconvenience. Would certainly recommend to any first time visitors to Santiago.

Thank you for your comment. We have certainly instructed our guides not to visit the jewelry anymore since it is not originally included in the program. Comments like yours help us improve our services. Thanks for choosing us!

Disappointed

The tour was advertised as 4-5 hours however we were collected from our hotel at 08:30 and were returned back there after 3.5 hours. We were surprised that the second stop on the tour was at a precious stone/jewellery store where we were required to browse for a while when we would rather have seen more sights of Santiago. Having said this, the remainder of the tour was interesting but we felt rather short changed.

We are very sorry for what happened during your tour of Santiago. Thanks to your comment, we have learned about the bad practices of some collaborators and have decided to do without their services for not respecting the program. We sincerely appreciate your opinion because it will allow us to improve the aspects we want to have under control. Best regards.

Nice small group tour

Nice tour. Just the two of us. Nice that it operated with only two. Pity that the tour included a visit to a jewelry shop and the associated pressure to buy. We prefer not to have such visits as our aim is to see the sights and not shop. Maria was informative but sadly was not well that day but battled on. The driver was excellent. Tour was advertised at 5 hours but ended after 4. This was ok as there was only the two of us so we got plenty of information and attention.

We thank you for taking the time to share your opinion about our tour of the city of Santiago. We have taken the necessary measures so that the jewelry situation is not repeated again, it is not really within the established itinerary and we regret that this situation occurred during the course of your visit. We hope you return in the future. Best regards, Jaime

Interesting if a little short to be called a full day

Love small tour with Maria. Although I agree with other reviewers that there isn't a huge amount to see, we have paid less for lengthier tours elsewhere so I am not convinced that the tour was great value for money. We got picked up at 8am and by the time we had picked up others we started the tour at about 08.45. We stopped for lunch at about 1215 and were returned to our hotel for 1330. This did not feel like a FULL day. Having said that Maria and the driver Francisco we knowledgeable and engaging.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
We appreciate your comments and we regret that the tour was not to your liking, although we do not totally agree since a city tour is not a full day tour but a "Half Day Tour" as it is well explained on the TripAdvisor page and in which we show and deliver relevant information of the most important tourist places to see in the capital. Best regards.

First of all price was $133 for 2 not $100. Taken many viatours and frankly this was not worth the price. Guide and driver were fine but you are driven to places you can do easily on your own for far less. Maybe at $25 pp it would be ok. Disappointing.

We regret that the tour was not to your liking. The places we visited are well explained in the itinerary that you probably read before deciding to take our tour of the city of Santiago. As a tourism agency, and through the work of our guides, we aim to provide varied information about the history, culture and development through the time of our city and each of the tourist places we visit so that those who choose to form a real idea of ​​our country and the idiosyncrasies of its inhabitants.
