Overview

Explore the landmarks, resorts, and culture of Chile’s central coast on a full-day, small-group tour from Santiago to Isla Negra, San Alfonso del Mar, and Pomaire. Follow in the footsteps of poet Pablo Neruda, take in a glamorous seaside resort, and visit a small community that’s famed for its distinctive pottery. This 8-hour tour includes pickup and drop-off in centrally-located Santiago hotels, and is limited to 8 participants for a small-group, personalized experience.
  • 8-hour, small-group day trip from Santiago
  • Visit Neruda's Isla Negra home
  • Tour small coastal villages and a resort
  • Shop for pottery in Pomaire
  • All entrance fees included
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Santiago
  • Small group tour limited to 8 people
Start the day with 8am pickup at your hotel in Santiago: pickup is available in the districts of Providencia, Las Condes, Vitacura, or Santiago Centro. Board an air-conditioned van for the 1.5-hour trip to Isla Negra, which passes through a scenic agricultural landscape. Make the first stop of the day at the former home of the poet Pablo Neruda, who built it to resemble the interior of a ship, filled with seashells, mementoes, and treasures from the sea.

After touring Neruda’s home, take some time to explore the nearby towns, such as El Tabo, El Quisco, and Canelo, then continue to  Algarrobo, a pair of resort destination adjacent to San Alfonso del Mar (home of a record-breaking swimming pool). Drive to the pottery village of Pomaire for a classic lunch of Chilean specialties (own expense), then join your guide for a walking tour of the village. This is the perfect place to shop for distinctive, affordable souvenirs made by local artisans, and you can buy directly from their small workshops.

At the end of the afternoon, begin the return trip to Santiago, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel at roughly 6pm.

We loved this tour. Pablo Neruda,s home was incredible! The sea views were spectacular. Lunch was a culinary delight with authentic Chilian food. We then had time to shop at the Pamaire and enjoy going into the various shops. This is a must tour when visiting Santiagio.

We were the only two on this tour and it was great to have Henry all to ourselves. We had an unexpected short stop at Rio Tinto wine store/tasting room and that was nice. The Pablo Neruda museum was great, as was the lunch and short stop in Pomaire. We enjoyed the pottery and artisan shops there. Henry was friendly and professional and we recommend him for a great tour experience.
