Valparaíso 42 Tours & Activities

Half-Day Valparaiso City Highlights Tour

In the morning, get picked up at one of the select hotels in Valparaíso or Viña del Mar. Meet your local guide, board the comfortable air-conditioned van and head out on your 4-hour tour of Valparaíso, considered among the most interesting cities in South America, thanks to its picturesque multi-colored houses and narrow streets, which have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Make a first stop in Cerro Florida to admire La Sebastiana, the home of Nobel Prize for Literature winner, Pablo Neruda (admission not included). Continue along a scenic road through the hills, enjoying views of the city and the ocean, then climb up to Cerro Concepción and walk through the famous Paseo Atkinson and Gervasoni while your guide tells you about the history of immigrants who came to Valparaíso during its golden age before the opening of the Panama Canal, when it still was the main port in South America.

Then, descend to Muelle Prat and see Plaza Sotomayor, one of Valparaiso´s main squares. These squares host some of the most traditional landmarks of the city, including the Old Aduana (customs house), nowadays part of the naval zone of the Chilean army; the monument to Arturo Prat, considered a national hero for the Pacific War; and other French-style buildings dating back to the seventeenth century.

End your tour with a funicular ride to Paseo 21 de Mayo for a stunning view of the port. Your last stop is Cerro Playa Ancha to visit the Merchant Marine viewpoint, with its fabulous amphitheater facing the Pacific, before being dropped off back at selected hotels in Valparaíso or Viña del Mar.
