5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

One of the best tours of our trip to Chile. We walked, took the Metro, a cable car and a funicular - we got a real sense of the culture and the heart of the city. Nicolas, our guide, was excellent and did a great job giving us terrific perspectives of the city. The various food stops were great too - Don't miss this one.

Great food not just quantity but also quality. Wonderful guide who showed us his city with passion. We were treated like VIPs in all the stops! A perfect way to see some of the city while experiencing the cuisine.

Fantastic guide and small group with an overview of Santiago.

First stop central market: pisco sour and empanada empanada ok, not great

Second stop Bellavista: fantastic lunch option with gigantic portions, I can't stress this enough

Third stop San Cristobal: dessert... I can't even explain it but it was strange and still tasty

Would definitely recommend this tour if you like culture, scenery and food.

What a wonderful way to see the city. Javiera was a wonderful, personable guide. Standouts include taking the furnicular up San Cristoból, which offered fantastic panoramas of the city And taking the subway, which was bright and clean. You should go!

I recommend this highly. Nicolas was a great guide and the places we went were fascinating. I would have appreciated going to the fruit and veg market La Vega Central as well, given that this is a food tour, but I definitely appreciated the places we did go.

After having read previous reviews on this tour, I came prepared with an EMPTY STOMACH. I left stuffed to the gills! We met Thomas, our guide, at Constitution Plaza. We strolled through the city's pedestrian mall. The food markets displayed gorgeously plump and delicious strawberries and cherries. The seafood market showed the bounty available to the Chilean people. A snack of a seafood empanada was enjoyed. Hopping on the metro, we ventured to Bellavista where an authentic Chilean lunch was enjoyed. Pastel de choclo was my choice. It's like a shepherd's pie made of corn, olives, hard-boiled eggs, and meat....SO FLLING and delicious. For dessert, we rolled to another destination for mote con huesillo, a traditional Chilean summer-time non-alcoholic drink made from wheat and peaches. Sweet and Refreshing. This tour tested your ability to consume. Tastings or small bits of Chilean culinary culture may work far better based on all of the walking. BUT, you should immerse yourself in this tour.

it's a bit informal and i wish we had gotten more information about the history and the city, but the guide was very nice.
