Testimonials
Diane and Jim Anderson in Lima Dear Chile For Less,

We appreciated the ground staff arranged by Latin America for Less in the five different countries (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Ecuador) we visited, who, without fail, arranged for us to meet and depart on eleven separate flights at all hours of the day. Having personal transfers from airports to hotels (and vice versa) and to be picked up and delivered at our hotels before and after tours took so much of the stress and uncertainty out of the trip.

Diane and Jim, Victoria, BC Canada.

Itinerary and Prices

Day 1: Arrival to Santiago & City Tour

You will be met at the Santiago Airport by a Chile For Less representative and transferred to your comfortable hotel in Santiago. Check out our selection of great value Santiago Hotels.

Today, you will head out on a half day historical tour of Santiago to visit some of the most interesting sites in Santiago and learn about the fascinating history of Chile and its capital.

You will start the tour driving up the Santa Lucia hill where Santiago was founded. You will then continue on to the historic downtown, Plaza de Armas (Main Square), where stand some of Santiago’s historic buildings. You will see the Cathedral, City Hall, Central Post Office, and National Historical Museum.

You will then drive to the civic area to see the Moneda Presidential Palace, current seat of the Chilean government. The tour will continue through charming streets lined with 19th century buildings, passing the statue of Typical Zone, the Cousiño Palace, and the Basilica de los Sacramentinos (inspired by the Montmartre church in Paris).

The tour will end on the Alameda Bernardo O’Higgins, Santiago’s main avenue where you will visit the San Francisco church and its beautiful colonial museum and monastery. The church boasts a peaceful garden and an important religious art collection.

You will have the remainder of the afternoon and evening to explore Santiago at your leisure. Try some delicious traditional Chilean cuisine in one of the many restaurants, discover some of its exciting barrios, and take advantage of the lively nightlife!

Day 2: Valparaiso & Viña del Mar Tour

After a delicious breakfast at your Santiago hotel, you will head out on a tour of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar, two charming coastal cities located only an hour from Santiago. Look around as you travel across the beautiful valleys of Curacavi and Casablanca on your way to Valparaiso.

With its bohemian atmosphere, chaotic and colorful architecture, and lovely port, Valparaiso is one of the most attractive cities in Chile and unlike any other. You will start your tour at the Mirador 21 de Mayo from where you will enjoy spectacular views of the entire city and bay.

Next you will visit the fascinating house-museum of the poet and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Pablo Neruda. Easily one of the most important figures of Chilean culture, it was in Valparaiso that Pablo Neruda, tired of the tumultuous life of Santiago, decided to retire and establish himself in a house on Mount Florida. Learn all about the writer’s eccentric tastes as well as his most glorious and absurd moments as you wander through the charming rooms that inspired the artist.

Descend to Valparaiso’s Prat Dock, where sailors embark and men scramble across the docks loading the enormous cargo ships. Filled with swarms of people and fervent activity, there is no better place to get a sense of the lively port life in Valparaiso. Don’t miss the handicraft markets displaying local products from all around Chile.

After lunch, you will head out to Viña del Mar where you will enjoy a relaxing stroll down the quiet streets and picturesque beaches of this lovely coastal town.

In the afternoon, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Santiago and have the evening free to explore more of the city’s exciting spots.

Day 3: Arrival to Punta Arenas

You will be picked up at the Punta Arenas airport by a Chile For Less representative who will take you to your confirmed Punta Arenas hotel. You will enjoy the remainder of the day exploring the lively city at your leisure.

Day 4: Arrival to Puerto Natales

After a filling breakfast in your hotel, you will meet your transfer to the bus station for your journey to Puerto Natales. One of our representatives will meet you at the station in Puerto Natales and take you to your comfortable Puerto Natales hotel.
You will have the rest of the day to rest at your hotel and start exploring the quaint town on your own.

Day 5: Torres del Paine Excursion

Begin your full day excursion to the strikingly beautiful Torres del Paine National Park. Along the way you will stop at Milodon Cave, an enormous cavern that is almost 100 feet high and 230 feet deep. This cave is the site where Captain Hermann Eberhard discovered the remains of a prehistoric giant ground sloth called a Milodon.

The tour continues from here through the hills and extended plains of the Chilean Patagonia, before reaching Torres del Paine National Park. This World Biosphere Reserve is home to pumas, foxes, guanacos, and rheas that coexist in the forests of Lenga, Coigues, and Magellan barberry beneath the awesome jagged peaks of Torres del Paine.

You will admire Lake Nordeskjold draining into Lake Pehoe at Salto Grande and the granite massifs of Cuernos del Paine which dominate the skyline. Eat lunch along the shores of Lake Grey, enjoying the views of Grey Glacier.

After lunch you will continue on to Amarga Lagoon which has some of the best views in Torres del Paine before returning to your comfortable hotel in Puerto Natales

Day 6: Departure from Torres del Paine

After another delicious breakfast in your Puerto Natales hotel, meet your transfer to the bus station for your journey home or onward to your next Chile destination.
