Top 9 Santiago City Tours
Santiago de Chile is a city full of contrasts, from modern to classic architecture, with views of the ocean and the mountains.
Visit the city of contrasts
Take a stroll around the capital of Chile to 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 or a seafood supper. Or get out of town and visit the coastal towns of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar, or the Chilean wineries in the Colchagua and Maipo river valleys.
Santiago city tours often include a one-day or two-day set of excursions with a guide to the main attractions in the city, and perhaps a side excursion to the nearby communities of Valparaiso and Videl Mar. 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. We recommend also spending a few days winetasting in the Colchagua and Maipo valleys, where Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere, a distinctively Chilean wine, are grown.
