Overview
Biking Santiago is a fun way to explore the city’s enclaves and get a lay of the land, but can be intimidating to tackle independently. This Santiago bike tour takes you down tried-and-tested paths to reach Santiago highlights, including the markets, city parks, and Gabriela Mistral cultural center while filling you in on the city’s history. A small-group tour of seven or fewer means more time for questions.
Itinerary
Highlights
  • Cruise through Santiago to its top sights during this bike tour
  • Breaks for included snacks, juice, and ice cream keep the riding easy
  • No need to rent a bike—a quality bicycle and helmet are included
  • Small-group tour limited to just seven people for a more personalized tour
What to Expect
Begin your Santiago bike tour when you meet your guide and small group downtown. After getting set up with a bike and helmet, follow your guide to some of the city’s top sights. Pass through the art-filled neighborhoods and the markets, stopping for a juice or a snack midway. Take a break to enjoy lunch (own expense) at your choice of restaurant or ask your guide for a recommendation. Then, rejoin your group for a ride through Santiago's parks, down to the Presidential Palace, and along a designated bike path. Throughout the tour, your guide tells you about Santiago’s rich history and culture, and you’re free to ask questions, too. Your Santiago bike tour concludes at your original departure point.

We did the whole day tour with Alonso and Nacho who went above and beyond. I lost my phone and credit card during the tour, and Alonso led the rest of the tour on while Nacho backtracked with me to find the phone. We also called the phone, and Nacho translated and brought me to

It is a nice little tour but on the expensive side. Plus they are missing one important highlight ( plaza de Armes ) probably because of road issues ? They invite you to share an ice scream at a local little place. Very nice. But still you feel like you paid for the treat.

Hola 831agnesc, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I am very sorry to hear our services didn’t reach your expectations and I would like to personally apologize. Our tours are designed to be viable over the long term for our city, the staff, and bike maintenance, so our prices are set at the amount charged. We also pay our guides well and they stay with us for many years, which usually is not the modus operandi in the tourism industry. It's true that on a bike tour it's easier to communicate during the stops than while pedaling, which is why we stop frequently to talk about the sights we visit, the history of the city and the cultural peculiarities you may witness along the ride. I'm sorry if you felt like the guided bike outing was equivalent to bike rental. Having said this, I want to thank you for your honesty and constructive feedback. Our guides, as well as the rest of our team, have taken your comments into account, as we are committed to improving for the future. Your feedback is valued and I apologize again that your tour did not match the standards written on TripAdvisor. Saludos Peter
