Santiago Tours

Santiago de Chile is a city full of contrasts, from modern to classic architecture, with views of the ocean and the mountains. On a Santiago tour, see the architectural mix between the 18th-century Metropolitan Cathedral and the business center’s new skyscrapers, all set against the backdrop of the snow-capped mountains of the Andes. Other attractions include the civic center, La Moneda Presidential Palace, the Plaza de Armas with the imposing Cathedral, and the Main Post Office. Finish your Santiago tour at the W Hotel, sipping a Pisco sour and traditional Chilean cuisine.

There are so many amazing things to do in Santiago and the surrounding area. Popular day excursions from Santiago are visits to the coastal towns of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar or a Chile wine tour in the Colchagua and Maipo river valleys. Valparaiso is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, due to its historic setting during the 19th century, when it was a major port city in South America. Now it is a bohemian-style town with colorful houses, funicular railways, and ocean views. Vina del Mar is a beach-side community with wonderfully walkable beaches. Here you can visit the famous Chilean poet Pablo Neruda’s home. In the Colchagua and Maipo valleys enjoy tasting excellent wine. The Chilean wine region is where Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere are grown.
