ITINERARY

Arrive in Valparaiso

On arrival at the airport in Santiago, Chile’s capital, you will be collected and transferred through to Valparaiso for some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Valparaiso has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and many of its colourful buildings perch in a haphazard fashion on its hillside.

If you arrive early enough, you may wish to take a walk to discover the local art galleries and street art which embody Valparaiso’s bohemian lifestyle, including visiting one stairwell which claims, “we are not hippies, we are happies.” Or take a ride on one of the city’s remaining funiculars.

Valparaiso Half Day Walking Tour

Today you will enjoy a private tour of Valparaiso. Marvel at the graffiti and street art that lights up the cities buildings as we make our way around the city. The guide will customise the tour to suit your ability and interests, walking by foot for the most part so you can truly experience this unique city up close. We will visit places of interest such as the surroundings of Echaurren Square, the downtown Port, the old banking area as well as Concepcion and Alegre Hills, where we will find plenty of artesian stalls and artist workshops for you to explore. One of the highlights is travelling on one of the famous funicular's which are still in operation to this day. This allows a different perspective of the city , where you can witness the spectacular views from the buildings and houses that climb up the hanging hills of the city. Return back to your hotel at the end of the tour, where the remainder of the day is at your own leisure.

Valparaiso Half Day Cooking Class Experience
