Get a taste of local life on this full day tour of Valparaiso
Depart early from Santiago towards Valparaiso to experience the highlights of this famous port as a “porteno” or “local”. The drive will take you through the Casablanca Valley, famous worldwide for its white wines, before reaching Avenida Argentina, the starting point for the main tour. From here, the picturesque farmer’s markets can be visited before you take one of the classic funiculars to gain a birds-eye-view of the city.
Then stroll along the streets to admire their unique community art and architecture. At lunchtime, head to Club Social Jota Cruz, a flagship restaurant and bar of “Valpo” to taste the popular “chorrillana”, that includes potato chips, onion, meat and a fried egg, among other flavourful ingredients. A ride in the trolley bus (tram) is next, followed by a motorboat excursion around the bay. The final stop before returning to Santiago is a visit to a sailor’s bar in the port.
