Santiago Classic City tour
Discover the classic attractions of Santiago, the Chilean capital on a 3-hour guided tour. Situated in the country’s central valley, and home to 7 million people, Santiago’s rapid economic growth has made it one of South America’s most developed cities. Its unique urban environment artfully unites classic and modern. Experience Chile´s rich cultural heritage through the city’s monuments, including the Plaza de Armas (the main square), Santa Lucia Hill, La Moneda (the Government Palace), the Post Office, Club Hipico (Riding Club) and the Santiago Metropolitan Cathedral. Head to Cerro San Cristobal, a hill rising nearly 1,000 feet above Santiago in the city’s largest park. Atop the hill you’ll find a church as well as a stunning 72-foot-tall statue of the Virgin Mary. Then visit the Orient Sector, the most modern part of Santiago, and see its impressive high-rise buildings and classy boulevards. After the tour we drive you back your hotel or at some restaurants to enjoy a traditional lunch (own expenses)
Concha y Toro Winery
Travel through the beautiful wine country to Chile´s legendary Concha y Toro Winery. After a relaxing drive, pass through the traditional winery’s grand entrance to spend a pleasant afternoon enjoying the grounds. Your guided winery tour starts at the stunningly landscaped antique gardens just outside the Casona, a mansion that was once the summer residence of the Concha y Toro family. Cross into the Pirque Vineyards to learn about the growth and development of vines assisted by the meticulous attention of master vineyard keepers. Centuries old history is all around as you explore the ancient Pirque Terraces. Old world taste comes to life with sampling of Casillero del Diablo Carmenere. The wines created from this classic Chilean variety were confused with Merlot for more than a century before rediscovery in the 1990s. Today Carmenere is Chile’s emblematic wine. Then descend underground into the winery’s intriguing system of ancient cellars. Visit “Casillero del Diablo” (Devil’s Cellar), the source of the famous legend that made Chilean wine known around the world. End your tour at the wine bar for a wine tasting, an ideal place to taste premium wines from the flagship Casillero del Diablo label. Once you've met your match, visit the wine shop where the full assortment of ultra-premium Concha y Toro wines are available for sale as well as books and souvenirs to commemorate your visit.
