Ship tours for pre cruise in Santiago?

Gail in California

Recommended Posts

We are starting a Regent cruise in a few weeks and have three days pre-cruise in Santiago. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the ship’s pre-cruise tours. We might consider doing a tours by locals instead if the ships tour is just a drive-by look.
One day is a Santiago city tour & a drive with lunch at the Santa Rita winery with tour & tasting. That day is from 9 AM until 5 PM. 

Another day is driving to Portillo with a lunch at a local restaurant, and visiting Laguna Del Inka. That day is from 9 AM until 6 PM.

Our last day we have a guided visit of Valparaiso for an hour and a half & a cable car ride before going to the pier.


These seem like long days and I just want to make sure our time is well spent.

Thank you for any suggestions or comments.
