Welcome to Chile!
Santiago is known as the city that never sleeps and also for its rich history, great food, wine and land marks. Get to know Santiago by going to the top of Cerro San Cristóbal by a funicular or by cable car for a spectacular view of the city. The iconic statue of the virgin Mary stands at the top.
Next explore Cerro Santa Lucía, where a fortress built by the Spanish sits atop an ancient volcano. Stop at a local artisans market for a souvenir. You will have the option to walk, ride or use the metro for an authentic Santiaguino experience.
On day 2 Enjoy the catch of the day at Mercado Central. Visit hot springs in Cajon De Maipo. Santiago is also loaded with museums and beautiful Cathedrals. We offer activities at the beginning and end of our tours, however, many of our guests have insisted on extending their vacation a few more days, to take in all that Santiago has to offer.
This route is researched periodically for your safety and is subject to change due to unpredictable civil unrest and changing Covid-19 restrictions throughout the country.
