My friend and I will be in Santiago Chile from Dec 24-28 and would like to know what to do on Christmas Day. We would like to visit a home but don't know if there are any home experience tours. Any suggestions since it is holiday and many businesses will be closed.
We appreciate the wines of Chile but have been to California, Finger Lakes & Long Island Wineries. We will be in Valparaiso & Santiago for a week this December. We think we'd like to visit a winery & see some tours that are a full day. I'd hate to miss seeing other things in this region, are there wineries closer to Santiago where we can spend a half a day? Any thoughts re. the time in Chile's wine region? Is it a must see & do?
Wanted to stay in a central hotel in Santiago. We think we like the Crowne Plaza on Plaza Baquedano. It looks like it is near the Metro and a central location to see tourists sights in Santiago. Any suggestions? Better ideas? Things not to miss?

We are a group of 10 and looking for a half or full day tour in Santiago on a Sunday. Any company recommendations appreciated. We are all first time visitors.
After having seen most of the highlights in the typical centre of the city fro 2 days, do you think it would b?e a good idea to rent a car for the third and fourth day? One of them we want to travel to Valparaiso and if we finish early from there we can use the car to drive anywhere else before ending in Santiago and on the other day we can reach further interestin spots of the city, which could be reached by metro but a car would also give more freedom. Do you think its useless?
Hallo. Pls can you tell me some safe places where one can have a night walk, just to see buildings or plazas lighten and take some photos or even stroll aimless? Places not too noisy with clubs etc. but with some spots to have a beer perhaps. Thank you.
Hello fellow travellers!
Do you know where are the best places to go to for wine tasting in Chile please?
I have googled around and all I could find are guided group tours crammed into a very short time.
We would rather prefer a simple opportunity to sample, unhurried and unhassled, a few wines of our choice, even better with some nicely paired cheese, and maybe buy a couple of bottles afterwards.
Are there places like that between Santiago and Puerto Montt?
Thanks a lot in advance!
I arrive at midday (if i arrive on time which i doubt) at the busstation in Santiago from Argentina. Friends booked a bus to valparaiso but i'm afraid i won't be able to make that. I looked for other connections on turbus.cl but there are none available after 2. Are there other ways i can get to Valparaiso on the 31, i think many people want to go there for new years and i am afraid i won't be able to catch up with my friends.
Thanks for helping!
