During this tour around the capital, you will get to know the historical, cultural and modern places of the city of Santiago. The tour begins at the Plaza de la Constitución, where the Government Palace is located, known as "La Moneda", the Plaza de Armas (Km. 0 of Chile), which is the core of the historical center of the capital, surrounded by historical buildings, such as the Cathedral of Santiago and the post office of Chile. Close to this historical center are the Central Market; the Museum of Fine Arts, the Lastarria neighborhood and the Santa Lucia hill, there are some stops planned.

FD Valparaíso & Viña del Mar City Tour (10 hours) - Private Service Guide and ticket for funicular included.

In the morning, tour to the city of Valparaíso (a journey of approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes). Valparaíso is a port city on the coast of Chile which was declared a World Heritage Site. It is known as the jewel of the Pacific and has a captivating architecture with very narrow streets, steep funiculars, colorful houses, endless stairs, historical elevators and multiple viewpoints. Upon arrival in the city, its main hills will be visited, such as Cerro Concepción and Cerro Alegre, where the fascinating history and extraordinary geography of the city will be learnt, characterized by the influx of European immigrants who left their mark on the architecture and cultural institutions, such as the National Congress. You will also visit the Muelle Prat, the Plaza Sotomayor and the Paseo "21 de Mayo", while watching the amazing murals on the walls of the narrow and picturesque streets. Then, you will continue to the city of Viña del Mar, known as the "Garden City", due to the well-kept gardens that some houses, buildings and public spaces in the city have. This place, despite its proximity, differs from Valparaíso, being more modern and sophisticated, which generates an interesting contrast. Viña del Mar is a seaside resort with outdoor sports, recreation and high-level gastronomy. And despite being modern, it also has numerous castles and old mansions of wealthy families from the last century. These were converted into museums or entertainment centers, such as the glamorous Municipal Casino.
