On this walking tour, you can expect to see and visit all the best Santiago Chile attractions and landmarks. Our tour begins at your hotel. From there, you will take a cable car to the summit of San Cristobal Hill, where we are going to enjoy an amazing panoramic view of Santiago while your guide explains the city’s layout and shows you some of the sites we will visit in this tour. When it is time to go down, we will do it by an open-air funicular which will leave us in the picturesque Bellavista neighborhood, a place full of life and bustling cafes.
After this, we will head to Santiago’s historic city center, where we will stop at the Museum of Fine Arts, Central Market, and Plaza de Armas (the main square of Santiago). Once in the plaza, you will see the Cathedral, City Hall, Historic Post Office, and Monument to Chile’s Indigenous People. Next up, you’ll go by the Old Congress Building and Supreme Court and keep going on our way to Palacio La Moneda (The Government House), the Santiago Stock Exchange district, and the Municipal Theater.
This is not all! We will also take you to the highest point of Santa Lucia Hill, a sanctuary right in the middle of the city. The Mapuche Indians called this hill Huelén and Pedro de Valdivia founded the city on the hill back in 1541. After exploring Santa Lucía Hill, we will cross the street and go to a handicraft market, the perfect place for souvenir shopping.
After this, our tour is coming to an end. Our tour guide will lead you to your hotel using the city’s modern Metro system, where you’ll get to travel like a local.
