I am a geography student, that is, I am interested in the relationship between human beings and the land that surrounds them, I am precisely trying to carry out this through the tours that I have been taking for some time now.

Tour description

Santiago is a city embraced by imposing mountains, that is why I invite you to a walk through the iconic Cerro San Cristóbal , so that you can learn about the identity of the Chilean capital from another point of view . During the tour, apart from a pleasant walk, we will travel by funicular and cable car. Added to that:

  •  You can enjoy one of the best views of Santiago .
  • You will learn about the different secrets that the hill keeps, touring the ruins of important architectural works from the past.
  • We will learn about the Andes mountain range, its historical and cultural importance.
  •  During the tour, we will stop to learn about iconic spaces that bring Santiago to life, stories and elements that are part of Chilean culture.

Some comments:

  1.  It is recommended to bring water and sunscreen.
  2.  The value of the Cable Car is 1,850 CLP (approximately 2 dollars )
  3.  The value of the Funicular is 1,400 CLP (approximately 1.5 dollars )

Cristóbal, fue super amable en todo momento. Es un gran conocedor de la historia, geografía y origen de la ciudad de Santiago, logrando responder cada consulta en un diálogo fluido y simpático. En el recorrido en el cerro San Cristóbal pude acceder a lugares que probablemente yendo solo no habría podido conocer. Muchas gracias Cristóbal, experiencia 100% recomendable.

Excelente tour con Cristóbal, muy original y único. Nos compartió mucho información histórica y fue muy ameno en sus explicaciones. Ascendimos y recorrimos cada rincón del cerro en su compañía, incluso hasta nos gestionó los entradas al funicular por internet para evitar hacer filas de espera. Muchas gracias, lo disfrute mucho.
