Tour Details

After meeting your local representative from either the Santiago airport or a central city hotel and before you board your ship, take the day and explore the Casablanca wine valley region and discover Valparaiso. The beautiful landscapes in the wine region will make for magical photo opportunities you will cherish for years to come.

Make your way to a winery located in the valley of Casablanca, Veramonte or Emiliana. The viticulture history of the Casablanca Valley began in 1982 and has become one of the favorite places for the development of new projects in the Chilean wine industry.

Veramonte is a well-established and massive producer of Chilean wine, an easily recognizable brand for anyone who strays into the global section of their wine shops, as well as those who have a thirst for reasonably priced Sauvignon Blanc, of which Veramonte makes a seemingly never-ending supply.

Emiliana is the first organic and biodynamic winery in Chile. The Emiliana winery firmly believes that using sustainable, organic, and biodynamic agricultural practices results in better-balanced, healthier, and more productive vineyards, which in turn results in better quality grapes and therefore better wines. The winery visited will be confirmed the day of the tour based on availability at the winery due to production that day. Regardless of which winery is visited, you will be treated to a guided tasting of some of their top wines.

You will then drive to Vina del Mar, also known as "the garden city" situated north of Valparaiso. This is the closest resort to Santiago, the capital of Chile. During your orientation drive through this area, you will pass the oldest casino in the country, beautiful public parks, a real MOAI (monolithic human figure from Easter Island), as well as the beautiful beaches where many "Santiaguinos" (people from Santiago) spend their holidays.

Before arriving to the cruise port in San Antonio, enjoy a lunch in a local seafood restaurant. You will then be taken to your awaiting ship with plenty of time for embarkation.

Please Note: This tour is for passengers starting their cruise in San Antonio. The tour will begin at either the airport in Santiago or a hotel in the central Santiago area and will end at the cruise ship. If you are arriving at Santiago airport on the same day of the tour, your flight must be scheduled to arrive at Santiago airport no later than 8:00 AM. If you are staying at a hotel, it is very important that you give us the correct name and address of the hotel, as many hotel chains have several properties. Failure to provide the correct information will result in loss of your tour and will not be subject to a refund. Your cruise must be scheduled to set sail at 8:00 PM or later.
