Nice tour of Santiago city center with a very helpful guide who gave a wonderful overview of buildings and brief history. Large group, but the guide ensured all could hear and found shade as often as possible during the tour on a hot day. Great intro to the city and spring board for targeted further exploration. Great to not have to book, just show up and tip as you feel comfortable, but 5000 pesos recommended.

Did the morning tour with Franco, and it was brilliant. Really funny and an expert on what to do and where to eat in the city. This is far better than doing a tour with anyone else in Santiago, and you get to see the real city. Remember that it's free because they live on tips, so if you enjoy it tip generously..I did! Thanks Franco!

Took the morning tour with Franco and really enjoyed it. He was really funny, I learned a ton of history. He did a great job of also telling people what things they should do to get a sense of the culture, told you about things you'd only hear from a person who lived and really knew Santiago, let you know what dishes were traditional from which places.

In all, it was tremendously thorough, really entertaining and I'm really glad I did it. A lot of people here talk about tipping 5,000 but for a 4 hour tour, the least you could give is 10,000. Don't be cheap if you enjoy it, which i assure you, you will.

Felipe made the whole experience so fantastic, bringing Santiago and Chile to life with his dramatic explanations. He was early and very friendly before the tour - very punctual and very informative - he gave a real flavour of Chile and its history
