We’re turning you into an honorary Santiaguino on this city tour that takes you inside local life! Hop onto local transit and discover the best places to eat, the best sites to see, and the best spots for just hanging out. By the end of it, you’ll be blending in like a true Santiago local.
The meeting point will be in La Moneda, in front of the Plaza de la Constitución, where the flags are. (If you’re going by metro, get off at La Moneda Station.) We’re starting our Santiago tour in the morning, the best time for enjoying the city and escaping the crowds on public transit. We’ll meet at La Moneda in the Plaza de la Constitucion, an iconic place in Santiago and a popular gathering point for many locals.
From there, we’ll head out to explore the historic center of Santiago, known as the heart and soul of Santiago, and where the city first started and grew into what it is today. Discover sites like the Plaza de Armas and get a feel for what makes this city so great. (Don’t forget your camera — this area is excellent for photos!)
From there, you’ll travel like a local with a ride on the metro and a stop at Mercado Central, starring some of the freshest products in the country. Wander the aisles and watch how locals shop and bargain for the best deal — and maybe even try your own negotiation skills. Best of all, we’re going to eat some traditional Chilean dishes! Oooooh yeah. Food is included.
Next, 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 — and when we say everything, we mean EVERYTHING!
Our Santiago tour is then going onward and upward — literally! We’re taking the cable car to the top of Cerro San Cristóbal. At the top, you’ll have the best view of the city, so keep that camera handy. You’ll want to show off your awe-inspiring photos to everyone back home, right?!
We’ll finish up our Santiago tour with lunch (we hope you liked the food at the market!) in the beautiful, bohemian Bellavista neighborhood. This hipster district is home to up-and-coming restaurants, making it the perfect place to stop for a delicious Chilean meal. We’ll dine at a beloved local restaurant before heading back to where we started, but with the expertise of true Santiaguinos.
