Private guides in Santiago?

Recommended Posts

Hi, any recommendations for private guides in Santiago?  I have a day and a half in Santiago, have been there before, and would like to customize a tour.  Thanks!

We've gotten a private guide on the website  https://www.toursbylocals.com/?msclkid=5171ccfa016f1762fad792ccc4cc982f&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=18 General (USA)&utm_term=ToursByLocals&utm_content=002 private tours and tour guides

You have to put the location eg. Santiago, Chile and your dates needed and a host of guides will appear and give you a description of the tour etc.  There are bios of each guide as well as reviews.  You can contact the guide directly for additional information.

They were very helpful in organising the trips for us.


We did a day’s private walking tour in Santiago on Tuesday plus a private tour to Valparaiso yesterday, both guided by Estaban. We highly recommend both him and the company.

We spent two days in Santiago at the end of our cruise last week (March  5th, 6th and 7th).  We used Carola Neubauer for a transfer and tour from the ship in San Antonio to Santiago and we enjoyed the experience.  It took us to Valparaiso and then Vina del Mar for lunch.  Once we got to Santiago, the gridlock was horrendous and we spent quite a bit of time getting to our hotel (Plaza San Francisco).  We used Carola again on our departure day (March 7th) and again spent more time sitting in gridlock than seeing any sights.  This is all due to the ongoing demonstrations in the city.  The subway system is down as several stations were set fire to and therefore there are more people using the city buses, so long lines waiting for them, and more cars as people who normally use the subway, can't.  There are ongoing demos every day, usually in the late afternoon/evening hours and we were advised to stay in our hotel during the evening.  We saw small fires set in the street, parades of people shouting and waving flags - all this from our hotel window.  The one day that we took a tour outside of the city, we used ilovechilitours and did a trip to the Andes.  We had an amazing time and the couple running the tour made us feel like family.  They are well informed, lively, and very pleasant to spend a day with.  I would highly recommend them.  It is a shame that the city of Santiago is so defaced with graffiti, buildings are boarded up so that stores can't be damaged, some hotels have had to shut due to damage from the protestors.
