“Great tour....”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 :)

“Good Tour: A Bit Long”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We took the Free Walking Tour and found it to be very informative on the history of the city. The group was big and enthusiastic as our guide led us through the downtown of the city. As an older couple we found it challenging to keep up, and were exhausted by the four and a half hours or so that the tour took. The pace and length were our only objections especially after researching other tours that cost twice as much as this one.
