About the tour

Join Myriam as she takes us to the largest craft market in Santiago; Los Dominicos. This old Hacienda contains more than 150 stores in the middle of the city. Here, artisan traders work with 100% Chilean products including wood, lapis, leather, clay and wool to create wonderful goods to tempt shoppers. On this tour we will learn about Chilean traditions and their importance on the entire American continent. We’ll hear more about typical dance, food and drinks; see some special souvenirs and hear some odd stories about them!

I'm happy that I joined the tour but was also a little disappointed as it wasn't what I was expecting. I left a little early as there was far too much 'window shopping' for me, I was wishing I could see something of Santiago. Maybe it was just the district . Otherwise an enthusiastic tour guide. I'll try again if Myriam is doing a tour in a different area. Thank you.

By discussing the history of Chile, history of customs and the economic influences of the mines it was well worth my time.. Gracias!
