“Awesome city tour with Felipe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We joined Felipe for the 4 hour city tour of Santiago and had a fantastic time (the tour actually didn't go for four hours, more like 3.5 including the break). First of all the group harmonized really well. With about seven people who'd joined the tour it was really personal and even though Felipe doesn't have a very loud voice he was easy enough to understand. His knowledge of the city and it's history is remarkable and his way of getting information across is very entertaining and great fun to listen to. Walking speed was fine with us but people not used to walking heaps might have difficulties. Had a 30-40 min break at a restaurant for drinks which was great to get to know the rest of the group better. All together an excellent tour which I highly recommend to fellow travellers. Only "negative" if you could call it that was being reminded of a suggested donation for the tour several times of $5000-$10000 / Person. The donation was fine with us but I would have thought people donated anway without being reminded, but maybe that's a wrong assumption on my part ;).

“Great tour....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Like many of the other posts, this is a no brained.... Try to take this trip on your first day in Santiago and learn plenty about the city, it's history and culture. A great way to spend 4 hours that go by rather quickly. You will be provided close to 30 minutes for a coffee break about half way through the tour. Our guide Filepe did a wonderful job, provided wonderful insight and really had passion for his city and country. Definitely recommend taking this trip.

At the end of the tour,you'll be provided a card to a restaurant in the central market which is about 30 minutes from the end of the tour. They serve traditional Chilean seafood at reasonable prices and provide your complimentary pisco sour which my wife enjoyed. Our guide also provided assistance with attending a football match later that weekend.

Most gave a $10 tip. Definitely worth it.,..

“excellent tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is a great tour. Franco (10am 15/10)was a very entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide. He gives you a good bit of history about chile and santiago and info about the good place to see and to eat while in santiago. He also had advice on how to visit the wineries affordably which was something I hadn't been able to find searching online and really appreciate that advice. Great tour. You should definitely do it.

“Awesome!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We have never had a tour as good as this. Even though there was only the two of us, Felipe put in a great amount of effort in telling us everything from the first Chilean Indigenous people, to the best places to eat and drink in Santiago. I highly recommend this tour, You would really miss something if you don't go. Thank you Felipe and I hope everything goes well with the new show. Peace :)
