In addition to this tour in the morning, we did another bike tour with the local provider La Bicicleta Verde through the district of Bellavista and the markets of Santiago. We had a whole day on the bike with the second tour through the parks and politics. A great way to explore the city individually in small groups. We were 6-8 fellow cyclists. The two guides explained a lot. There are samples of juices, corn cakes, ice cream. Please pay attention to the start times. The local seller sends a confirmation email.
We did the Market and city tour due to timing. Our guides were Hector and Alfonso and both were very fun and informative. we thoroughly enjoyed seeing the murals and the markets. communication with this company is easy and very efficient.
