Experience Santiago’s main attractions on this four-hour guided coach tour. Starting at your hotel, you’ll head downtown, passing Plaza de Armas which is home to the city's oldest buildings. We'll then drive through Santiago district to San Cristobal Hill where you can admire the breathtaking views of the city and the Andes. 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.

The tour ends back at your hotel, where you can spend the rest of the evening at your leisure.

After breakfast, we'll travel to Valparaíso – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – where colourful houses adorn the hillsides overlooking the sea. You'll visit some of the best places Valparaíso has to offer, as we take you through winding streets and stairways.

Admire 20th-century British-influenced architecture and breathtaking vistas at the 21 de Mayo viewpoint before your tour ends at the city's pier, where you'll begin your expedition cruise.
