The Concierge at our hotel recommended the Free Walking Tour of Santiago and what a great idea! But do it at the start of your visit so there is time to go back and spend longer at some of the excellent cultural sites.
Franco, our English speaking guide, was very engaging and knowledgeable, and it was easy to ask questions as he piloted us through areas of the city we would have never found ourselves. Afterwards we had lunch at one of the restaurants Franco recommended, mostly full with local people, and enjoyed some authentic Chilean food. Again, much easier to do with the knowledge we gained from the tour.

We had one day in Santiago, and this was the only activity we scheduled. We arrived a little before 3PM, and waited around with a group of about 20 other tourists until 3:30. Extremely disappointed and totally unprofessional.

Hello, thanks for your comment.

What day did you go on the tour?

Are you sure it was with our company FREE TOUR SANTIAGO? (we depart from the Cathedral in the Plaza de Armas)

Best regards,

Best and fastest way to visit Santiago.. You will have the chance to see the most important things around the city... It was a pleasure being walked around by Franco...

Our guide Franco gave an accessible, engaging insight into Santiago’s history, culture, local cuisine and current political situation, all delivered with humour on a well-paced tour through different parts of the city. Highly recommend!
