Valparaiso is one of those places where you could wander the streets for days. It is colourful, vibrant and unique. Definitely worth the 1.5 hours from Santiago.
Your guide will pick you up at 8:30am from your hotel in Santiago, and you’ll enjoy the scenery as you drive along the green fields of Chile’s Casablanca Valley, best known for its Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs. Take a break along the way for an optional tasting at a local vineyard (not included in tour price).
The next stop is Viña del Mar, called the “The Garden City” for its abundance of flowers and green areas. This is the perfect spot for lunch on the coast (at traveler’s expense). You’ll walk the charming streets, stopping to check out the main plaza and one of the famous Easter Island heads.
After Viña del Mar, you’ll travel to Valparaíso, a photographer’s dream with its street murals, brightly painted buildings, and distinctive funiculars. This 9-hour trip concludes with convenient transport back to Santiago.
