1-Day Tour Guide in Santiago, Chile


The best trip I´ve ever had was a 4-hour stop in Buenos Aires.
How could I humanly squeeze that time to use it wisely, go for a steak at lunch, and without losing my next flight?
It took me several emails the previous week to plannify those 4 hours.
One person picked me up at the airport, to have a meeting in the car and driving to visit my second apppointment.
Long story short, I met 4 clients, delivered a presentation to entrepreneurs and picked up sample materials from a vendor.
I slept very well in that flight, eventhough it was coach.
You can stretch your time and let me help plannify your trip here.


Santiago in 1 day

If you have just one day in Santiago, you have several options. Let me comment 2 ways:


Option 1: Do as every tour does on your own
Time: 6 hours. Budget USD$100 = CLP$60.000
If your hotel is in dowtown, walk around to Plaza de Armas. (45 minutes, free)
If you like museums, pick one and go early. Like Bellas Artes and dont forget the second floor with the classics. (1 hour, $10)Use the service Santiago Hop on hop off with Turistik to visit main sightseeings. (4 hours, $30)
Go to Cerro San Cristobal hill to see the extension of the city (1 hour, Turistik bus included).
Avoid restaurants there, unless you in a hurry.
If you are in Providencia and love sandwichs, go to Fuente Alemana o Domino Hotdogs (30 min, $10)
Buy a mug, keychain or magnet for your collection (15 min, $10)
Back to your hotel or airport.
If you need a ride, use Cabify instead of taxis. You will thank me later.
