Private Tour: Santiago City Sightseeing
Ideal for first-time visitors to Santiago, this private guided tour is a well-rounded introduction to Santiago's famous sights. With a choice of a morning or afternoon tour, you'll have the rest of the day to explore Chile's capital city further on your own.
Your tour takes you through the main streets of Santiago's civic center with its many different architectural styles. You'll pass the neoclassical Moneda Palace, built in the 18th century and current seat of Government; the Plaza de Armas, or main square, with its cathedral and the Central Post Office.
Your tour continues to the Parque Forestal, based on Paris' Champs-Elysees and Santa Lucia Hill, where the city of Santiago was founded in 1541. You'll continue to the bohemian area of Bellavista and climb the San Cristobal hill for a panoramic view of Santiago with the Andes mountains in the background.
Your tour concludes with a visit to the handicraft village of Los Graneros del Alba. This attraction is closed on Mondays, when an alternative attraction is substituted.

I had a wonderful tour of Santiago thanks to my tour guide Christian. I learned so much, and had the opportunity to go to the top of Metropolitan Park to see the Virgin Mary Statue. The view of Santiago, the Andes, etc. were incredible! Christian even helped me exchange some American dollars for Pesos while in town. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone completely new to Santiago!

This tour was conducted by Gladys Riquelme and her driver,Adolpho on behalf of VIATOR.
From beginning to the end of the afternoon,it was a delight to get to know Gladys and Santiago City.
It was an excellent lesson in the history and geography of this wonderful city.If Gladys and Adolpho are examples of typical Sanitago citizens,then Chile is truly blessed !
Nothing was too much trouble for Gladys so please forward our personal thanks to her if possible.
