‘The jewel in the Pacific’ is how many people refer to Valparaiso. It has gorgeous hills that look out onto the sea, there’s a richness to its architecture, heritage and culture which will definitely welcome you to explore the streets, and discover the hidden gems this colourful port-city and its people have to offer.

On this experience you’ll meet your guide in the morning to visit the foundational sector near the church to visit the oldest temple in the city.
You’ll then be introduced to a great social project called ‘dining room 421’, here you’ll meet the neighbours and neighbourhood volunteers and you’ll hear how they’re making a difference through the work they carry out in aid of the city’s homeless.

You’ll also walk through the Puerto neighbourhood visiting local shops and old bars as you hear about the city’s culture. You’ll head up the Santo Domingo hill where you’ll meet a local poet who will share the stories of this hill and how it was the first ever inhabited. He’ll share the secrets and the myths of architecture and local heritage.

Your guide will take you to the ‘Chinita’ house where you’ll be received by a neighbour in her home where you’ll enjoy a tasty homemade lunch and share the table and conversation about life in the city.

On your way back you’ll walk to the city centre through the patrimonial area so you have a complete experience in the city!
