Ever since 2009 when Rolling Stone Magazine wrote about our city tours, our green team guides have been hard at work to continue to provide the best tours in Santiago!
2:30pm: Once everyone is set up with their bike, it’s time to ride! We pedal through Forestal and Bustamante parks on a mellow cruise to get oriented and learn some crucial Chilean slang and watch the locals make out in the grass.
Gabriela Mistral Cultural Centre
3:30pm: We leave the parks and hit the streets, making our way to the historical GAM cultural center, which sits in the hip Lastarria/Santa Lucia Neighbourhood. Try out your bell and turn the heads of the skinny jean and moustache wearing Chileans sipping coffee as you ride towards downtown.
4:30pm: Next stop is La Moneda, the Presidential Palace, where we’ll get into Chile’s political history and how it shapes society today.
Back to the Bike Base
5:15pm: Taking advantage of some of Santiago’s growing network of bike lanes, we’ll zigzag back up to our bike base camp and make sure you are equipped to enjoy the rest of your time in our beloved country.
SimonVG: We thoroughly enjoyed the Parks and Politics tour which gave us a good physical sense of the centre of the city...
Sperlin: It is a relaxing, fun and easy way to get the ‘scoop’ on the city and Chilean culture...
Tuukka L.: This was the most interesting way of learning history I've ever encountered
