We are the Wallys and we have been enjoying showing the secrets of the city to friends from all over the world, ages, political and poetic visions for more than 10 years. We are a team of fans of the city, of street art, history and curious facts about our neighborhoods. We have received official awards, such as the most innovative tourist company in Chile and awards from friends, pets and ex-boyfriends, but that is another matter. We have a good time and we are professionals in what we do. Why are we the best tour in the city? Well, ask your hotel/hostel for the Wallis from Tours4Tips :)

Tour description

Join us through a walking adventure around the city!

We visit and chat about architecture, side streets and both political and cultural destinations, explaining blank spaces you may have in your knowledge of Santiago.

We'll teach you why Santiago has so many street dogs, what it means to be Chilean and our bizarre coffee culture. You will go through streets with graffiti and murals, visit Plaza de Armas, and learn about our past in front of La Moneda Presidential palace.

This tour will help you love the city with as much passion as we do!

Get comfortable clothes and footwear on and be ready to ask every single question that comes to mind, as our red and white striped t-shirt Wally guide takes you through the city!

Johan was an amazing guide - and he tells the history of his country with such vibrancy and keeps you engaged. I would highly recommend this tour to any of my friends visiting Santiago.

This is a very political tour. Not much information on the history or origins of Santiago. I didn’t hear anything about how the city was formed or why it was the way it is today. It felt like the guide was going on a biased political rant for most of the tour expressing his personal views. The entire tour felt very polarized as it was often shared left or right wing. There was a few good stops which shared the history of the military coup and we got to take the subway. The last stop about the UN building was interesting and I would not have known to go without the guide. Guide was able to answer all our questions and gave a few good stories. I would go again but prepare myself to listen to lots of politics in advance.

Brilliant. An informative mix of ancient and recent history, politics of the country, art, culture, life in Santiago. Also learnt our way round the metro and what and where for best food and drink in town 😁
