I am a 44-year-old freelancer, who has had the opportunity to travel around some parts of the world and I have known the Tip Based Walking Tour system, a medium that has caught my attention and I want to replicate it in my country, together with the kindness and hospitality that characterize the Chilean. About me, I am a nice guy, and I like being a good host with the visits I receive from other places, which has allowed me to experience the possibility of presenting my city and its surroundings. As a result, I want to take advantage of this and be able to guide you through Chile, from north to south, from its beautiful beaches to its ancient glaciers.

About the tour

This tour will make a historic road, through one of the most emblematic neighborhoods of the city of Santiago, starting at a nerve center where the old and the modern of our capital converges, which is the entrance to the former Quinta Normal of agriculture and the Museum of Memory and Human Rights and its surrounding history We will continue on foot, moving along the alleys and passages, which will remind us of an era of economic and political glory, which preserves classical architecture and allows us to travel to the past, as if we were really there, at the doors of the ancient "French Hairdresser". We cross main avenues, where various anecdotes are woven, such as the "Galán de la Burra" and places of mystery and death, such as the "Yungay Ghost Station". We will continue to the “Chilean Broken” square and know stories of patriotic heroism, in the context of the War against the Peru - Bolivian Confederation of the 19th century. From there we will move to the Plaza Brasil, a meeting point for local and migrant citizens and place for the beautiful “Church of the Precious Blood.”
