Arrive Santiago | Walking Tour
After landing at Santiago airport and clearing customs, you are met by your local representative and driven to your hotel for a private transfer. You have time to relax after checking into your cozy hotel before being picked up for a City Walking Tour.
The tour begins with you and your guide traveling downtown via Santiago's subway to explore the famous landmarks including the central fish market and ‘Plaza de Armas’, Santiago’s main square and kilometer zero (the point from which all distances in the country are measured). You visit the ‘Alameda’, the main street of the city center, via the busy pedestrian walkway ‘Paseo Ahumada’, famous for its crowds, shops, and diversity of people. After visiting Chile's presidential palace ‘La Moneda’, a symbol of Chile’s political past and its famously turbulent history, climb Cerro Santa Lucía, where Santiago was founded in 1541 by Pedro Valdivia. The tour finishes by visiting the bohemian Lastarria neighborhood, lined with cafés, restaurants, small theaters, bookstores, and boutique shops.
