Hi! I'm Diego. I-m born and raised in Santiago and I'm a born traveler, father of a baby boy and music aficionado. I have cycled more than 5 thousand kilometers along Chile in Atacama, Carretera austral,Valle del elqui, Cajón del maipo and also parts of Argentina, alongisde with several hikes in Chile as well so I can give lots of recomendations for those who are looking for outdoor adventures. I did my whole college training in Vaparaíso where at the same time became a tour guide for cruise passangers. Then I gave lessons of English as a foereign language in a remote school into the andes for 5 years until I became a father 3 years ago when I decided to change my life towards sharing all my experiences in this county to all the visitors that have come to enjoy our wonders!

Tour description

Welcome to my favorite tour in town!

On this great trip in heart of Santiago, you will visit one of the best lookouts downtown in a gorgeous island-hill park in the middle of the city where you will be able to discover the hidden history of the park (there is no info at the park if you go on your own); you will be able to discover nature and also to look at the Andes mountain range!; you will also be able to visit other main attractions linked to arts, culture, history, and food nearby the hill.

If you like short hikes, parks, nature, photography, history, geography, culture, arts, food, and also current affairs, this tour has the perfect mixture of all these topics!

Join me in this adventure!

Uno de los mejores tours a pie de Santiago de Chile. El cerro Santa Lucía ofrece de las mejores vistas de la ciudad y eso acompañado de historia, ciencia, gastronomía y cultura relacionada con el cerro y la ciudad misma. Muy recomendable.

Awesome tour. We chose this one because it said it was Diego's favorite in the description. We also wanted to see the park and views with information. Diego confidently answered our questions while giving us an overload of information. I highly recommend this tour for views of the city and lots of history. Plus he gave us food and drink recommendations. Thanks Diego
