This tour offers you a combination of the Discover Santiago Tour and a visit to a local wine vineyard. We start with the one-and-a-half hour drive to Santiago where we will first visit San Cristobal Hill. Here we will take a cable car to the summit and enjoy the most amazing panoramic views of the entire city and Andes Mountains. We will then drive through the bohemian neighborhood of Bellavista before arriving in the historic city center where we will see Florestal Park, the Museum of Fine Arts, Plaza de Armas (Santiago’s main square), the Cathedral, City Hall, Historic Post Office, Old Congress Building, Palacio La Moneda (The Government House), National Theater, Santiago Stock Exchange, and Santa Lucia Hill, where Pedro de Valdivia founded the city in 1541. Afterwards, we will visit Undurraga Wine Vineyard located in the Maipo Valley wine region. Since 1885, the Undurraga tradition has taken hold, producing outstanding wines from grapes nurtured by the earth and sun of this fertile valley. The Undurragas were early pioneers in Chilean winemaking, planting French varietals before the turn of the century and using wood barrels to age the wines and bring forward rich aromas and flavors. In 1903, they were first to export wines to the United States.
