Santiago City Tour

Santiago, Chile's capital, is a gorgeous city brimming with history and culture. Founded back in 1541, Santiago serves as the country's financial and industrial center. In fact, it's considered one of South America's most modern metropolitan areas. During your Santiago sightseeing tour, you'll be taken across the city to visit major governmental, historical, and cultural sites. You will spend your day discovering what exactly makes the city tick.

Your Santiago city tour begins in the older areas of the capital, where you'll come across historic structures like Club Hipico; this thoroughbred horse racetrack dates back to 1870 and is the city's oldest racetrack. It is also home to one of the continent's oldest stakes race, Clasico El Ensayo. This race has been compared to the Belmont Stakes in New York. As you check out the city's older sections, you will find other notable sights, like Estacion Central, the city's only railway station.

Your Santiago tour continues with a visit to the president's palace, La Moneda. La Moneda takes up an entire city block and is home to the president and the the offices of three government ministers - the interior, the General Secretariat of the Presidency, and the General Secretariat of the Government. Before continuing to the wealthier parts of the city to check out some local crafts, you'll pass by the Metropolitan Cathedral and the National Congress; the former seats the city's archbishop, and the latter once housed the country's legislative branch. You'll also have a chance for a photo op of the Greater Santiago Valley. Experience the best of the city of Santiago on this informative tour with your expert and bilingual guide.
