I'd highly recommend starting your visit to Santiago with this free tour. Our guide Felipe was really friendly and told great stories about the buildings and the history of Chile as we wandered through the centre of town. It also gave a sense of where everything was so you could go back and visit what you wanted to explore more.

We went a walking tour in Santiago around the beginning of September 2012 - it has taken me way too long to get around to writing up my review.

Having taken far too many dull, pre-recorded tour buses. we decided to sign up for a 3 and a half hour leisurely walk around Santiago. Our tour guide, Franco, was great. He was interested and interesting. He lots of great stories to help bring Santiago to life, from the nuts4nuts guy to the happy minute in the coffee with legs shops, mixed in with information on the Pinochet regime, earthquakes, and pablo neruda.

I couldn't recommend the walking tour highly enough. In any case stay away from those big red/yellow buses - Santiago is a city you can walk around, so take advantage of that fact, and don't forget to tip the guide if you are happy with the tour.

We were disappointed with the free tour walk. We had francko as a guide who was good but he seemed to be repeating the same stories for the zillionth time. The walk was very long, probably not advisable for older people as the tour was paced to not adjust to their speed and my bad knee. We thought that the suggested fee of 5000 pesos to 10000 pesos (about 10-20 dollars) was fair.

An excellent and comprehensive tour of the city centre by Jonny. He was full of enthusiasm and really engaged us in what he was saying. I do think it helps to have a native English speaker to speak to a group of tourists. Well done!
