Meet your guide at La Moneda Palace in the Plaza de la Constitucin to kick off your 4-hour tour of Santiago that pairs sumptuous food tastings with incredible city views. Youll travel by foot and take the metro to visit markets and historic neighborhoods.

In La Alameda, pass by the Iglesia San Francisco and Teatro Municipal. Stroll through Plaza de Armas and admire the Metropolitan Cathedral and Correo Central, the old post office.

  • Great food tour. Our guide Nickolas was fantastic. We got a city tour while walking to each of our next eating events. Went to the fish market and had great empanadas with a pisco sour, then strolled through the central market, very cool, had some great coffee and a pastry. Then we took the metro to a different neighborhood for some lunch, which was outstanding. Lot's of food and great fun. You will not leave the tour hungry. Great tour.

  • Great sights and tastes of Santiago. Very intimate tour with three of us. We were able gain valuable insights of life in Santiago and Chile overall from our local guide. Would love to repeat this tour when in Santiago in the future.

  • A fantastic way to spend 4 hours in Santiago. Claudia was an excellent guide and an absolute pleasure to meet and spend time with. I learnt so much about Chiles history and food in a short time, it was amazing!
    Would definitely recommend, worth every cent.

  • This was a perfect half day tour for anyone interested in food - and/or just interested in Chile. Flo was a spectacular guide, willing to amend the trip according to our preferences and seemed to have an answer to every question we could think of. She was very conversational without being the slightest intrusive - a truly special gift. The tour was substantive and way more interesting than anything we could have done on our own. I highly recommend!

  • This was an excellent tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and willing to share her experiences.Despite many locations being closed due to it being election day she put together a memorable experience.Unfortunately we waited for two no shows for close to 30 min at the start

  • Nice relaxing walkabout. Plenty of stops to enjoy the four hour walking trip. Lunch was great. We really enjoyed the cherimoya with fresh orange juice mixture, and the Pisco Sours are the cream of the crop. Santiago is an amazing city. Worth every penny we spent on this guided tour.

  • I enjoyed this tour very much. You learn so much more on a walking tour than on a bus. The markets were fun
    to see and the food was wonderful. Highly recommend.

  • Nicolas was fabulous. I really enjoyed the tour. Definitely recommend.

  • I would highly recommend this tour! Our guide was knowledgeable about Chilean history. The tour was well planned out and the food was super tasty and I don't eat meat at all, so there is something for everyone .

  • Though our tour guide Claudia was amazing, this tour is not worth the money. It is balanced between a quick historical tour of Santiago and some stops along the way for food. For food you are given a Pisco Sour/Empanada at the first stop, then you go straight to lunch where you are only allowed to order a main dish no drinks included, lastly when you go up to the hill you are presented with a sweet local drink for dessert. The food itself costs no more than 20 USD per person so not sure why they charge almost 80! I would not recommend this.
