Cristóbal had much information and was eager to share it with us. Loved sampling some Chilean foods from local places with the food markets.

After multiple checks with Guru Cristobal .. just a couple minutes before the scheduled tour was to begin, Cristobal canceled. After we paid $30 for transportation to get to the meeting location. While in Santigo we booked 2 Guru tours. Cristobal for this tour and Carlos for Essential Santiago. Both were canceled by the Guru tour leader. Have never had that problem anywhere else we have used Guru.

A great tour. We visited the markets and tried lots of the local food which was absolutely delicious. Cristobal is an amazing guide, and explained the origins of the food, and gave us recommendations about where to eat. We would highly recommend this tour.
