Casablanca Valley boutique Winery Tour
We'll leave Santiago around 9 am and take a pretty , 75 mins drive to the Casablanca Valley, previously famous mainly for its' whites but now producing increasingly amazing reds as well. We'll avoid the large, commercial, touristy producers and concentrate exclusively on boutique wineries with - it goes without saying - fantastic wines and a special, intimate vibe. Depending on the availability that day, we'll visit any two of the best, special, small producers in the valley, each with their own distinct and contrasting styles of wine. A lunch stop is not included in the schedule or price but can be arranged if all participants are up for it (from an empanada to a sit-down lunch) and if planned in advance. My aim is for the trip to be laid back, entertaining and informative, hopefully as if travelling with a friend. I speak native-level English, French and Spanish. Please note that due to some wineries still being closed to tourism because to the pandemic (or in some cases just on certains days), I ENCOURAGE INQUIRIES BEFORE GUESTS ACTUALLY BOOK, TO GIVE ME TIME TO CHECK WINERY AVAILABILITY BEFOREHAND and avoid having to reschedule in the event of unavailability on any given day. In principle the experience is limited to 3 guests for comfort reasons but larger groups (traveling together) can be accomodated. Please contact me with any doubts for for further information!

Hike The Andes right next to the city
I will drive us to the entrance of the hill, at the beginning of the trail. Once there, I'll give a quick briefing about the hill and the trail, then we start hiking. We will do everything at your own pace. Our goal is to enjoy the landscape, get away from the city, get some exercise, have a good talk and have fun. Since I'm a tourism professional, I can also give you very good tips about the things you could check out during your stay. There are no rules or demands. We will enjoy the best hill of Santiago anyway we want. After a 40 minutes hike (more or less), we will reach the summit, which is at 1335 MAMSL. We will stay at the summit for a while. I'll show you the good spots for pictures, and we are going to rest and have some snacks. Then - whenever you are ready - we will start the hike down. After getting to the bottom, I'll drive you to the drop-off point in Los Dominicos metro station, where you will be able to take a walk through the national Monument called "Pueblo Los Dominicos" before taking the subway back. I'm flexible with a starting time as well, we can do it early in the morning or later afternoon, depends on your preferences.

Relaxing and adventurous volcanic Hot Springs at the Andes
I'll show you the most beautiful side of the Andean mountain range in the central zone. You will feel that you are in Patagonia itself, but only 2 hours away from the capital. The people and the culture that we will meet along the way, will make this experience a poetry in your travel story. We will pick you up early in Santiago. If you want, we can stop for you to grab traditional empanadas and coffee at the start of Cajon del Maipo in the Andes mountainous region, where there are 4 active volcanoes, spectacular rivers, waterfalls that come from the incredible heights, peaks of more than 8000 meters above sea level, more than 500 glaciers, hot springs, unforgettable clear southern skies, and a mountain culture that tells a unique story of identity. I will tell you the history since the first Germans arrived recognizing valuable minerals. The history of the train that wonderfully crossed these mountains, about the ecological constructions and the native fauna and flora. The highlight of our experience is at the hot springs of San Jose mega-volcano, where you will be amazed by 7 terrace-shaped hot pools, an impressive natural formation a few km from the border with Argentina. After the submerged therapy at the hot springs, we meet around a delicious generous picnic table at a stone artesanal store, called La Magia del KM 71, and taste our own Chilean wine.

Vive Santiago above the Bike
We will start the experience of living and feeling the capital by bike in the civic center of Santiago, we will visit the Plaza de la Constitución, Government House, Plaza de Armas, Cathedral, etc. Then we will head to the market area, first we will visit the Central Market (fish, seafood) and then the Market of typical food, fruits and vegetables. We will then travel to the Forestal Park, the city's great green lung, to cover it in its entirety. Then we will climb to the top of Cerro San Cristobal, where we will get beautiful panoramas from all sectors of the city and the beautiful Los Andes mountain range. To go up we will choose between two alternatives: the first consists of approximately 30 minutes of pedaling up to the top of the hill; if you think your physical person will not be able to climb the hill, we will choose the second alternative and we will go up by cable car to the top. Then we will experience an adrenaline rush down and finally we will visit the artistic, gastronomic and beautiful Barrio Lastarria. Other things to note We will tour the city for the most part by bike lanes, and where there is no, we will go on the street next to the vehicles. Remember!... it is not a tour of historical information, it is a walk so that you feel yourself the city of Santiago with your whole life, characters, colors and scents.
