Have a day to kill in Santiago? Take a tour of the capital and visit some of its historic sites. We will pick you up from your hotel and show you the metropolitan city of Santiago. In this tour visit Santiago’s most important historical sites, including the downtown area surrounding the Plaza de Armas and the La Moneda Presidential Palace. We will also pass by the Mercado Central, one of Chile’s largest fresh seafood markets, and stroll by the many bustling stalls to see the tremendous variety available from Chile’s bountiful sea. We will visit some of the city’s lesser known barrios including República and Concha y Toro. Initially constituting the outskirts of the city, the capital's constant growth transformed the area into a privileged neighborhood and home to Santiago's high society. There will be time to walk around and take photos of the varied styles of architecture dating back to the 19th and early 20th century. Continuing through the cobblestoned Lastarria neighborhood, we will walk through the Parque Forestal and pass by the Bellas Artes Museum. For a panoramic vista of the city, we will visit the top of Cerro San Cristobal, 600 feet above the city.

During the tour, you will have the option to visit one of Santiago’s most famous museums, La Chascona, the former home of Chile’s beloved poet, Nobel Laureate Pablo Neruda.

You can end the tour at the picturesque Los Dominicos Craft Market where over 150 Chilean artists’ handicrafts are displayed; stroll through the artisan village and enjoy an empanada at one of the outdoor cafés or we can drop you off at your hotel.

Tour lasts about 4 hours.
