Santiago walking tour + winery visit
Welcome to Santiago! On arrival at Santiago's Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport, you will be met by a Peregrine representative and transferred to a hotel in the city. Please look for your transfer guide at the airport – they will be holding a sign with your name on it. Once you have checked into your hotel, the remainder of your first day will be free until an important welcome briefing at 6 pm.
This morning you will be picked up from your hotel at approximately 9 am. With a local guide, take a walking tour of Santiago to visit some of the city’s many outstanding attractions. Stop by the Plaza de Armas and have a look at the cathedral before heading across to La Moneda Palace. Continue through the main avenues of old Santiago, across the Bohemian neighbourhood of Bellavista and up the San Cristobal Hill for a panoramic view of the city framed by the Andes. Saunter past elegant residential neighbourhoods and the shopping and financial districts. Your walking tour ends at the artisan village of Los Graneros Del Alba, where local craftspeople can be seen at work on unique wares. This afternoon, head out of town to the Concha y Toro vineyard, located in Pirque in the Maipo Canyon. This winery, founded in 1883, is one of Chile’s most renowned. The cellars, built with materials dating back to the 18th century, are situated six metres underground to maintain the ideal temperature needed for fine wines. Walk around this estate before heading to the cellars to learn about some of the different stages involved in the local winemaking process. What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to taste some of their acclaimed wines. Return to Santiago for the night, perhaps heading out independently to taste some regional specialities, like pebre – a hot chilli salsa accompaniment.
Your Independent Experience will come to an end today after breakfast. You will be transferred to the airport for your onward flight, so please ensure you advised of your flight details when you book your Santiago Experience.
