Welcome to Santiago, the capital of Chile! This city is the most central part in Chile housing the vast majority of the country's population. Here, you will discover the political history and how Pinochet's dictatorship is still affecting places in the 20th century.

We will start the tour strolling through Santiago's famous parks; Forestal, Plaza Italia and Baquedano and discuss how politics have affected these green spaces as well as what brings young couples in love to these public areas! We'll get a tasty treat along the way of something deliciously refreshing that begins with ice and ends in cream (hint hint). Next we will head on over to the GAM where we learn about public figures and leaders during the time of the dictatorship. Afterwards, we'll head over to La Moneda to hear more about the painful political history surrounding General Pinochet's notorious 1973 military coup.

Note: Private option is also available for $90 per person

2:30pm: Providencia

Once everyone is set up with their bike, it’s time to ride! We pedal through famous Chilean parks on a mellow cruise to get oriented and learn some crucial Chilean slang and watch the locals make out in the grass.

3:30pm: Gabriela Mistral Cultural Centre

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: Presidential Palace

Next stop is La Moneda, the Presidential Palace, where we’ll get into Chile’s political history and how it shapes society today.

5:15pm: Back to the Bike Base

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.
