Day 1: Santiago
Bienvenidos! Welcome to Chile. You can arrive to your hotel at any time where an envelope with the necessary vouchers and contact details will be awaiting for you. Although Santiago covers a large area, the city centre is quite compact and easy to get around. The city's centre is roughly triangular in shape with the Plaza de Armas, the main plaza and home to the Cathedral, sitting in the centre. Panning out from here are wall-to-wall shops, restaurants and parks. For a more serene look at Chilean life, head out to Barrio Bella Vista, Santiago's 'Paris Quarter'. Set within a circle of snow-capped mountains, Santiago is vibrant, artistic and gourmet - and the gateway to adventures in the snow, sea or desert.
Day 2: Santiago
First is the La Moneda, in the Plaza de la Constitucion area. From there, we’ll head to the neighbourhood of La Alameda, a place that’s popular with locals thanks to its gorgeous architecture and blending of the old and new city. Discover sites like the Plaza de Armas and get a feel for what makes this city so great. Next, you’ll travel like a local with a ride on the metro and a stop at Mercado Central, starring some of the freshest produce in the country. Wander the aisles and watch how locals shop and bargain for the best deal. Best of all, we’re going to eat some typical Chilean dishes! Then your Santiago tour will lead you to La Vega Central, a local market just on the other side of the Mapocho River. You can find everything you could imagine here, from souvenirs to healing potions. Afterwards, take the cable car to the top of Cerro San Cristobal. At the top, you’ll have the best view of the city. We’ll finish up with lunch in the bohemian Bellavista neighbourhood. This hipster district is home to up-and-coming restaurants, making it the perfect place to stop for a delicious Chilean meal to end the tour.
