Kamal - Santiago is a very interesting city. Visited lots of neighborhoods. Ended with a visit to San Cristobal hill where virgin Marys statue is. Took the Fonicular and tried the local drink Motta. Claudia did a good job and Lydia drove the van well thro the streets of Santiago.

GREAT CITY TOUR - This tour took us throughout the city and let us off in several spots to see the area up close. I Liked that we hit all of the city highlights. The guide was informative and had lots of interesting facts.

Disappointing - This is a waste of time. The tour guide forgot people and left them behind twice. She couldn’t speak English (in an English speaking tour) and didn’t know basic information about her country. Additionally, she spoke so quietly no one could hear her. She needed to carry an umbrella or something so we could find her in a crowd. She also walked in the back of the pack, leaving everyone confused on which way to go. She told us to meet in one spot, then changed the spot without telling everyone. She route was pretty and the bus was comfortable, and the bus driver did a great job. However, the guide was not proficient.
