What a great day. Our guide Juan Pablo was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Santiago. The tour began at the President’s square and continued through the market area of the City. The eating experience stares with a light snack at a fun local cafe. From there we wandered through the Fish Market where we ate a fabulous Fish empanada and then through the beautiful flower market and vegetable market. Along the way, Juan Pablo Fuller is in on local history and and current events. We ended the day atop the beautiful Cristo mountain. Fabulous group of tourists and a wonderful guide made it a perfect day.

I booked this to fill some free time at the end of a business trip. Overall a very enjoyable tour - Nicholas our guide was friendly, engaging and enthusiastic, really enjoyed the time with him. The small size of the group makes a big difference too. We enjoyed a visit to the central market - nice as we saw a good chunk of ordinary Santiago - for a delicious seafood empanada and pisco sour the best of the 5 I had on this trip!, then trendy Bella Vista and Lastarria firstly for gelato, then a lunch of traditional Chilean food. We were then left at a small market area with more shops and restaurants. Overall a very enjoyable 4 hours.

The only negative I have and Nicholas was very apologetic about this and adapted the tour to compensate, so I don't hold him to blame! is that as I went on a Monday, the trip up San Cristobel Hill was not possible as the cable car etc. are closed on Monday. Viator should make this clear on the listing - I didn't see anything to warn me of this.

Brilliant day out thanks primarily to being with our cook Mikail Sampen. Mikail is a genuinely brilliant and passionate chef who cares hugely about Chilean cuisine and its preparation using locally sourced products. He opened up his restaurant for us to cook an excellent lunch using very simple ingredients that we bought from a local market - an experience in its own right. We had some amazing food in the capital Santiago, including some high end and expensive cuisine, but Mikail's abilty to create something very wonderful out of simply, fresh, ingredients down in agricutural Santa Cruz, leads me to believe he's one of the best and most promising young cooks in Chile.

Our guide Nicolas was very easy to understand and spoke clearly and loudly enough even for us hard-of-hearing. He took us to two nice restaurants representative of Chile, and to three different types of markets. The fish market was fascinating with an enormous display of the fish off the Chilean coast. He offered a lot of historical and current information that kept the tour interesting. We got a lesson on how to pay for and ride the subway, so now we're confident to head out on our own today. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Nicholas was a great guide. We enjoyed the conservations, the history and the explanations of the food and history of the marauders. He was helpful with the Metro, which we took between markets. Tastings , including lunch, were fabulous. Highly recommend this tour.
