We joined Phillipe's morning tour along with approximately 30 others. What a grat way to start learning about the sights, culture and history of this amazing place. Phillipe was funny, engaging, passionate and very knowledgable about his city. I've noticed on tours in other cities that guides avoid the more contraversial topics or remain infuriatingly 'PC' but Phillipe's insight and honesty was refreshing and fascinating. He offered his own views whilst leaving space to disagree if you chose to. His introduction has made me subsequently find out more about the Pinochet years and has made me fall in love with the Chilean people even more!
The tour is free, but of course, the guides need to earn a living and so they welcome tips! The amount they suggest is 5000 -8000 pesos (very approx. £7 - £10). In my view this is inexpensive for a 4 hour tour so packed full of interesting facts, opinions and insights.
As an aside, this is a great way to meet other English speaking people in the city. After the tour 5 of us headed off to the Fish Market for lunch and spent the afternoon wandering around the city - which was an unexpected bonus of having been on the tour.
