Chile's capital is a dynamic, modern city where colonial mansions sit among soaring skyscrapers, where folk art becomes fashion and Latin and European cultures intertwine. The city is reinventing itself, with arts, nightlife, and restaurant scenes that have never been better, making this thriving and sophisticated metropolis into the civic, cultural, and historical nucleus of the country. Join this 4-hour guided tour and discover what makes Santiago the cultural, political and financial center of Chile.

The tour starts in the morning or afternoon from your hotel or address in an air-conditioned van. Begin by visiting the installations of the Club Hípico de Santiago (Equestrian Club) which is a replica of one of the most beautiful equestrian clubs of France. After, continue on to the old and wealthy neighborhood of the city, dazzling with its architecture. You may find a few surprises within the current occupants of the buildings. Continue toward the center of the city, which includes the parade ground, the Santa Lucía Hill and cathedral, the Government palace La Moneda and the Post Office Building.

Wind up to the high part of the city starting with the Fine Arts Museum of Santiago. Visit to Mapocho River that divides the city, and arrive at the barrio of Bellavista, the very popular Bohemian quarter. This place offers-up many attractions, including hip new restaurants and bars, boutiques, avant-garde galleries, colorful antique homes and mansions. Walk in the footsteps of the famous literary, Pablo Neruda.

There is an option of replacing The Santa Lucia Hill with San Cristobal Hill, the second highest in Santiago, according to your choice.
