Un chauffeur en même temps guide extrêmement professionnel qui nous a guidé et expliqué les parties historiques avec beaucoup de sérieux et de connaissance, le tout à un rythme soutenu mais humain. Nous avons été enchanté par cette excursion que nous recommandons en raison de la qualité du guide.
Our guide was so helpful and informative and he had to speak two different languages throughout the whole tour because of the diverse group. He took us to all the political buildings, cathedral, natural History Museum and San Christobal Hill. This was a great way to start our time in Santiago as it gave you an idea where everything was so that you could plan the rest of your trip more easily.
I was disappointed that we did not get to go to the top of San Cristobal. Had we known in advance, we would have tried to arrange with the driver to drop us off at the bottom of the aerial tram, and pick us up at the bottom of the finicular sp? The other couple in the van wanted to do that, also. The traditional Chilean craft shop turned out to be an expensive jewelry store. The driver was nice and knowledgable.
Air conditioning in vehicle NOT working. Tour guide's English was NOT acceptable. Saw a lot but because of his lack of English, many things were unclear and not understood. We did get to a lot of places which was nice - BUT - would have been better if we knew where we were and what the significance was. Driver did well in traffic, however, he did take several phone calls while driving and did text too. Driver was to pick us up at 3:00pm - I called at 3:10 and Viator said vehicle broke down and they needed to send another vehicle for a small group tour instead of our private tour. Driver arrived at 3:30 and did do the entire 4 hours. Viator also credited us for difference between private and small group tour - thank you !!!!! I would do this tour in another city IF I could be promised a person with GOOD English vocabulary.
This was a good way to start our stay in Chile. Santiago is a fascinating city and this short tour made us understand the dynamics of the city as well as the insights into it's culture. The tour guide was very sweet and explained a lot about the city which we would never quite understand on our own. Only negative was that it ended sooner than expected.
