In our opinion, it is worth spending a full day in Santiago de Chile. While this capital city may lack the glamour of Rio or the grit of Buenos Aires, there are some fantastic restaurants and museums, and it is a city easy to explore at your own pace. There is an excellent choice of boutique hotels to rest your head before or after a long flight home. An hour by car from Santiago de Chile takes you to some of South America’s finest winemakers. Luxury boutique wine hotels offer exceptional wine experiences from the exclusivity of their vast estates. Let us arrange special access to top vineyards alongside leading Chilean wine experts. Those less keen on wine-tasting may enjoy a visit to the port town of Valparaiso northwest of Santiago. This vibrant hillside town has a relaxed, bohemian vibe that draws many award-winning writers and artists to soak up the atmosphere and salty sea air.
