We have become great fans of walking / cycling tours of cities because as well as seeing the main attractions, you get see parts of a city which are off the beaten track and learn so much more about the place you are visiting from a knowledgeable guide.
The Santiago city bike tour lived up to all our expectations. The preparation was excellent with several reassuring emails confirming that the tour was on and telling us where to meet up. It was a chilly Santiago Spring morning and Andres and Carolina were most friendly, offering us gloves, with Andres even giving me his hat to keep the chill off my head.
We then set off following Carolina from the busy city to the more off beat parts of Santiago, feeling entirely safe in the traffic as we negotiated junctions or traffic laden streets.
Carolina was a most informative guide and a highlight was the lunch stop at the human rights museum with some excellent sandwiches and tomato soup (great for the cold day) all made by Ines.
This is a highly recommended tour. When we returned to Santiago (after visiting more of Chile) it made us confident enough to hire our own bikes and go cycling around on our final morning to see far more than walking would have permitted, albeit Spring had truly arrived in Santiago and the weather was far warmer than our accompanied tour!
