Valentina was enthusiastic and interesting. She gave a great overview of the city and had some authentic recommendations for restaurants, museums and drinks. I recommend taking this tour on your first day in Santiago.

I had a spare day to visit Santiago and has been really positively surprised by the enjoyable and dinamic stories about the city and chilean culture shared by Franco.

One of the best city tours I've ever been thanks to the energy and enthusiasm of the guide- Omar. At first I thought 4 hours might be too long but then I followed till the very end. It was fun and engaging. I'd known very little about this city and now I feel I have some idea about its history... More

Great tour with our guide Franco. He was very enthusiastic and friendly. Great local knowledge and very good overview of history of Chile. The time passed very quickly. And we left with a lot of ideas of things to do and places to visit. Thanks Franco.

Franco was great! Loved his energy and his calm about the university students' protest. He gave some great quotations from former Chilean presidents. Out of the 6 tours I have attended (Lisbon, London etc) , his was the best!

The tour is long enough in order to get a very good idea about Santiago, but a bit short in order to enter into every one of the places; but this is something that you should do afterwards in Santiago, absolutely worth it. Franco is a great guide, who explains everthing in a funny way but with the necessary seriousity... More

We decided to take the free walking tour in Santiago starting at the Cathedral,Plaza des Armas. The walk is at a comfortable pace with a short break at 12,finishing around 13:45. Our guide was Franco,a pleasant young man with a great sense of humour and very knowledgable. I never expected a free tour to be so enjoyable. Thank you Franco.

I recently visited Santiago and to be honest I had very little knowledge about the place prior to getting there. I took a walking tour led by Franco, I have to say credit where credit is due, he was fantastic he was very helpful, friendly, had excellent facts and figures which I found gave the tour depth and helped resonate...
