Free Yungay Tour in Santiago
Duration: 2 hours
Where: Quinta Normal Station
Language: English & Spanish
Discover the most authentic side of Chile’s capital on the Free Yungay Tour, around the most untouched district of Santiago. Explore areas that survived earthquakes, fires, and the city’s unstoppable real estate development with the highest density of museums, theaters, and cultural centers.
Walk through Quinta Normal, a park which has a rich cultural offer chosen in 2013 by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the most beautiful parks in the world. Admire its eclectic palaces and the urban artwork coloring its walls. Navigate through cobble-stoned streets and soak in an atmosphere where people still greet each other, and where a nostalgic charm has attracted artists, scientists, and intellectuals.
Visit the most romantic restaurant and shops in the capital, among them a 150 year old restaurant, La Peluquería Francesa, where you can enjoy the best French-style food in the city as well as wonderfully bizarre deco.
On the Tour of Untouched Santiago you will discover the Yungay neighborhood, a magical place that makes you feel as if you were traveling back in time. Enjoy an afternoon of lively history just a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of the ever-growing city of Santiago!
Meeting Point: Quinta Normal Station
My friend and myself did the tour around Yungay with Sergio, and we were so happy we did! He showed us the suburban side of Santiago that we would have never had thought to visit, we had no idea it was so lovely, and the paintings on the walls were amazing. Sergio not only gave us in depth stories and explanations about the artwork and the different areas, but also had a real love for his neighbourhood and a passion for the artists. You won't be disappointed with this tour!

I was well surprised by the efficient, highly professional and nice tour we had one week ago around #barriopatrimonialyungay. The guide was well informed and a very nice person. She told us well ahead how it all would work, explained the rules of the tour and made everybody feel welcome. Made us curious to get into other tours of the company in other places of Santiago and somewhere else in the world.
