The food was diverse and excellently prepared in many small restaurants that really cared about the quality of the food they served. Locally produced food products were used and enthusiastically explained.

When we greet them they respond in courteous manners
especially people we encountered at the airport, hallways,taxis,etc. Pls . keep up the spirit as this is the overall reflection of the country itself to the outside world. We really appreciate your warmness not only to Cristian and staff but as well as to the others.

It doesn't. The city of Santiago was not a great highlight of our trip, in part because we already had plans to go to the staples just outside of Santiago (wine country and Valpraiso) on our own.

You can go tho Cerro Santa Lucía... From mon-fri, in the noon, you can see an actual fire of cannon from the top of the hill, in a little castle there. The view is amazing. And in the bottom there's one of the best cultural souvenir shops i've seen in Santiago.

Pre-Columbian museum is outstanding, the Belles Artes is rundown and a waste of time

Take a hotel in the city-centre. Santiago is a big place, but the main city-centre area is small enough to cover on foot. There's lots of parks, gardens, and hills, so enough places to get a respite from the sun, or a small siesta under the trees

There are lots of things to see and do and it never seemed to be crowded anywhere - a very pleasant holiday. Taking the bus and the Metro near the apt was very easy and convenient.

Street Art, natural suburb where you can sample Chilean lifestyle alongside everyday people. You will benefit from learning basic Spanish before you visit. Very limited English is understood!

You absolutely HAVE to do Peruvian food (for some reason Chileans love Peru) and sushi. All the fish for sushi in Japan come now from Chile (because of Fukushima), so the sushi down in Santiago is to die for.
