    A great excursion. Well worth the money. Winery and the info on the Santiago protests excellent
    The MTO agent was not well marked, so people got a little anxious,but it all worked out

    Sebastian met us at the cruise port entrance- there were 5 couples in total along with all our luggage. First we drove to Undurraga winery for a wonderful tour and tastings- delicious! Then we continued on into Santiago for a tour of the city with photo stops, lunch at a nice restaurant and a stop at a jewelry workshop and store where they made lapis lazuli jewelry. Finally off to the airport for the final stop of the day. Sebastian and his driver Alexi were very nice and accommodating.

    Our excursion was supposed to be a transfer from San Antonio port to Santiago, with a Santiago City tour. We opted out of the Vineyard. On the day, we were informed that it was not optional! Not the end of the world, but not the best expectation management. After that, we were informed that we were going to go to a restaurant for a $30 a head buffet. Our Chinese Parliament rejected this, and the guide informed us that we would go instead to an a la carte restaurant in Santiago. My wife and I preferred to use the time to visit the bustling market next door, as a large meal did not appeal. I'm convinced this was the better choice, as it enabled my disabled wife to access the public toilets by elevator, as all of the restaurants around involved insurmountable sets of stairs. Result! We then commenced our Santiago tour. Either it has little to offer, or our 30 minute tour short changed us. We did find time to visit a jewellery shop that no-one was interested in. The whole tour reeked of tour guide backhanders to me, as we had no interest in the 'stops', but they were immovable features. The stops combined took up almost 3 hours of the tour, meaning almost half of it was wasted on us. 1 star for picking us up and 1 for dropping us off. The remainder was disappointingly unsatisfactory.

    My husband and I were travelling with 2 other couples on a Celebrity Cruise and paid for a private post San Antonio Cruise with Santiago City Tour and Optional Vineyard excursion.

    This quickly turned into a series of unfortunate events...the tour guide was unable to translate Spanish to English properly, the tour was NOT private - even though we had a confirmation that stated a group no larger than 8 people, each stop was done with a wing and a prayer, and ultimately we did not get a chance to see any of Santiago other than through the window of a poorly air conditioned bus.

    We had communicated with the tour group two days prior to the excursion to make sure they were aware of our friend's need to make a flight. Instead of going to the airport first, the guide proceeded to drop off the rest of the passengers at their hotels in the city - IN HEAVY TRAFFIC. We were staying in the city, but our friends literally made their flight by the skin of their teeth. This was completely unnecessary as their flight was not until 9:50 PM. There should have been no reason a tour that was scheduled to end in mid to late afternoon would be so stressful.

    The vineyard we went to was actually lovely - and the tour guide and tasting was lovely - however, it seemed our guide had never been there before and was not personally in touch with anyone...

    There was a beautiful large table set up - looking like we were supposed to be having lunch there - but after some confusion - it was determined that it was not for us - and instead we ate elsewhere. Again - not a horrible thing, but completely disjointed and confusing.

    A shame - it should have been a lovely day.

    *******My recommendation would be to contact Chile Dream Tours and work with them - they are WONDERFUL to deal with. We spent two days after this with Chile Dream Tours and had two magical days - and now we see they offer this post cruise port tour as well - wish we went with them!

    Started with a 1 hour 45 minutes delay which got everything of to a bad start and did not really improve

  • 05-Nov-2019

    Excellent. Civil unrest in the city did not deter from our driver’s positive views of his country and the area. He was a great representative of Chile and its people. Went out of his way to accommodate one couple on the trip that wanted to eat at a different restaurant than he planned and the rest of us enjoyed. Highly recommend if you have about 6 hours between cruise ship and airport.

    Perfect way to spend time, drink wine 🍷 and head to the airport. Max was very knowledgeable and a good historian.

    We arranged to leave our ship at 7:15 so as to meet our guide Juan at 8:00. So we got outside by 7:30 and waited. There were three other couples to wait for . They were told to meet at 8:30 and when the fourth couple arrived it was after 9:00.
