You are tired of traditional sightseeing and boring
walking tours?

Then this is the tour for you!

Hola! Want to see how this far part of the world looks like? Then, come with me and explore a city that has everything you are looking for: From history to architecture and from street art to street food!

See Santiago de Chile from a different angle and take home some of the best memories you captured with vintage Polaroid cameras!

Explore Santiago with me and see some if it’s highlights like the impressive Plaza the Armas, the lively Mercado Central and the trendy Bellavista district’s street art and graffiti

I am a “Santiago Addict” so, I want you to feel the real life of a “Santiaguino” (But not the grumpy part, let’s leave that to them!). I will take you to the places that define us as citizens of Chile’s largest city and you will see how this enormous city has evolved in its history, people and lifestyle.

I am looking forward to seeing you and share a “Mote con Huesillos”! You will have to visit Santiago to see what it is 😉
