Itinerary for your Pre-Programme
Experience the highlights of Santiago on this four-hour guided coach tour. Starting at your hotel, you’ll head downtown, passing Plaza de Armas, Santiago’s main square. Here you’ll see the beautiful 18th-century Santiago Metropolitan Cathedral, the Central Post Office and the National History Museum, which is housed in the former royal court. We’ll then pass La Moneda Palace, the neoclassical government offices that were once the royal mint.
Our next stop is San Cristobal Hill. At 2,900 feet above sea level, you’ll enjoy breathtaking, panoramic views of both the city and the impressive Andes Mountains beyond. Before heading back to your hotel, we’ll stop at the handicraft centre of Pueblito los Dominicos where you can browse the local arts and crafts, and perhaps pick up a souvenir or two.
At the end of the tour, we’ll return you to your hotel where your excursion ends.
Please note that we may visit sites in a different order.
