  • "Casa Gárgola"

This was mybsecond tour with Diego and he is just so amazing. It feelw like we have been Friends for years. He is very inteligente and talks a lot about the history and culture of not only the buildings, but also thebsurrounding nature and street art as well. He is very patient and Happy to answer any question. This tour was super different and interesting and really showed an awesome part of Santiago that I never would have experienced otherwise.
