What you can expect
Santiago pick-up and travel to Valparaiso
Be picked up in the morning from your hotel in Santiago in your air-conditioned mini van and head to the coastal cities of Valparaíso and Viña del Mar which are located only 90 minutes from Santiago. Once you have arrived you will head straight to the famous funicular and ride all the way up to the hills to get breathtaking views of the pacific ocean! Lose yourself in Valparaiso's hills and find out the hidden stories in its staircases, quaint houses and funiculars! Discover where the locals go to have fun and where the best local restaurants are hidden. After Alegre Hill, head up to Concepcion Hill and be amazed by the breathtaking Lutheran Church of La Santa Cruz.
Viña del Mar
Continue along the coastline and arrive in the clean and orderly Vina del Mar which is a sharp contrast to the charming jumble of the neighboring Valparaiso. Manicured boulevards lined with palm trees, a sprawling public beach and beautiful expansive parks have earned it the nickname of Ciudad Jardín (Garden City). Stop to see the 'flower clock,' a genuine Moai statue from Easter Island, and for a relaxing walk on the beach before heading to lunch.
At lunch time we visit a local restaurant that will offer an assortment of Chilean food options and of course Chilean wine and beer!
On your journey to San Antonio you will visit a winery. Here you will try some of their signature wines on us!
Enjoy the ride to San Antonio port on your air-conditioned van.
