Flexible and Fun!!

Nicolas and his trainee, Jaime, did an excellent job on this walking and food tour of Santiago. With everything happening there we had to be flexible on the itinerary for our safety. We ALWAYS felt safe and had a wonderful time seeing the city highlights and experiencing the local food. We started with a tour of the Metro and the history of the culture. Of course with curiosity of what is happening they gave explanations of possibilities instead of skirting the issues. They embraced the culture and shared it with us through history and food. We experienced Plaza de Armas, the Seafood Market, and even ice cream. All Chilean favorites. It was a wonderful time!

Company better than guide

Though pleasant, our guide lacked basic knowledge of Chilean cuisine. For the amount we paid, I would've expected to get some kind of history, context, cultural norms, etc. Instead we got someone walking us long distances to different locations with very little commentary. The highlight was interacting with the other people on the tour. The food itself was basic and we even had to pay for our own water! I would've at least expected a complimentary drink with lunch. I would save my money and walk around the markets alone, you learn about the same.

You Need to re-write the description of this tour. We took the City’s Free walking tour on the first day of our arrival. It was about 5 hours. Without the food tasting. So therefore when we went on Viator tour... it was a repeat. Pretty much our highlite was the pisco sour. We sat down at 2 restaurant. First to eat an empanada. Then to another restaurant to eat the corn pie which was a famous food within Chile. Way too sweet for most of us. Only one person finished it. Then we went to a park where we took a lift to see a view of Santiago. Filo, our tour guide purchased a drink call moto con huesillo a sugar syrup drink with wheat and barley at the bottom. So sweet.,,,!!!!!!!! . We felt this food tasting tour was overpriced and did not educate the food in Santiago. We could of seen how some of our items were made esp. the corn pie and the drinks.
