Hi! I'm Sergio. I've been a tour guide for 5 years, but I still feel like every tour is like my first one. I believe a walking tour is not only about dates or names of buildings and statues, but about discovering what these places tell us about the history and culture of a city, so as a guide this is what I like to study and share with tourists. My tours are a mixture of facts and anecdotes to make you learn and enjoy yourself at the same time.

We went on the afternoon Tour with Diego and it was a blast. His knowledge about the area was great and he showed us a lot of hidden gems and gave us a lot of historical context. Would recommend to anybody who wants to know more about Santiago then just the basics.

The tour with Diego exploring Yungai and it’s unique art and history was incredible and we had an absolute blast. The district is truly remarkable and the way Diego showed us around was great too. Diego was incredibly helpful, kind and really passionate about all the topics what made this tour even better. If you’re going to Santiago, we highly recommend doing this tour with Diego! Muchas Gracias Diego

Ottimo tour! Sergio parla un inglese perfetto, è puntuale nel condividere informazioni e pronto a rispondere a tutte le domande che gli abbiamo fatto! Se c'è qualche murales che vi interessa non abbiate paura a chiedere, ce ne sono talmente tanti che sarebbe impossibile soffermarsi su tutti!
