Wonderful overview of the city

May 27, 2019

Brilliant and illuminating.

Carlos was the perfect guide. I learned so much and he gave me insights into his city that were unique and fascinating.

Guide was not appropriately knowledgeable about the city.

I was very very disappointed as my guide was not well informed about her city. She was not a native of the city of Santiago nor the country of Spain. I did not feel she was intimately familiar with the city from a cultural and historical perspective. She told one little vignette about a sculpture, but besides that added NOTHING. I could have just used a map and walked around. So in short the tour was both a waste of time and money.
