We did this tour in English with Paula. She shared a lot of history and interesting detail about the architecture, the city and St James. Pace was good with plenty of stops in quiet places. 2 hours. Recommend.

Definitely worthwhile! Paula takes you on a short tour around all the key spots of Santiago whilst talking through the past, present and future of the city. Wear comfortable shoes and be ready to listen and enjoy!

Very friendly and knowledgeable. Good tips for local food and experiences after the tour, and was great being led to the cathedral for the incense spectacle: wouldn't have otherwise known to go! Would certainly recommend this tour.
