About the tour

Goal of the tour: to know Santiago from an Average Joe point of view, this is not a pro tour and neither I’m a pro guide, is just a bunch of common places from a common Chilean point of view, we will take public transportation, ride rented bycicles, nothing fancy at all.

10:00 AM. First we start with my all time favorite coffe, near one of the Santiago’s main metro stations: Baquedano.

10:30 AM. I carry some extra public transportation cards, we will take a public bus that is going to border the famous Mapocho river to visit one of the most crowded and usual places of a chilean in Santiago on weekend mornings: La Vega Free Market. Here you will find almost anything from fresh fruits, local food and drinks, to used hardware. This place is far from elegant and not the safest place to be in Santiago, so, better avoid to bring expensive things here.

11:15 AM. We will take the Metro from Cal y Canto station to Cementerios station.

11:45 M. After the noisy and crowded free market we will head to a nearby and famous graveyard, a quiet place full of threes and curious graves.

13:00 PM. We will take a look at Bellas Artes, which is full of artists, pubs, coffees and restaurants, and finally lunch at one of the most curious and finely ranked places in Tripadvisor.

I’m OK with lending my public transportation cards (I have 3 BIP! Cards), but these expenses are on each own. Each metro or bus ride is about 1 USD. Food usually ranges from 6 to 13 USD per person.

I’m not charging anything for my services, but it’s OK if you want to tip.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
