Description

Immerse yourself in Chilean culture as you discover the country’s traditions and history just a couple of hours outside of Santiago. Starting at the beautiful coastal town of Isla Negra, you’ll visit the house of the famed Pablo Neruda. As Chile’s most beloved poet and a Nobel Laureate, Neruda’s poetry, much of which has been written as an ode to the country, represents the pride of Chile. As you explore the poet’s home, you’ll get a chance to peek inside Neruda’s eccentric mind. See Neruda’s bizarre collections, hear stories behind his most interesting relics, and learn about his vibrant life.

Afterwards, you will visit Pomaire, a small town brimming with tradition and excellent local food. The people of Pomaire pay tribute to Chile’s indigenous people by continuing the age-old custom of clay sculpting. The town is filled with quaint little shops selling pottery of all sorts, from clay pots to piggy banks. You'll enjoy a delicious and traditional lunch in Pomaire, dining at one of the small candlelit restaurants with traditional wood-burning stoves. As a final touch to this day of traditions, taste some of the biggest and best empanadas, the epitome of Chilean pride.

My love of traveling started when I was just 4 years old and my Chilean family moved to Brazil. For the next fourteen years, my family moved all over Brazil and we lived in Bahia, Salvador, and São Paulo. Ever since then, I’ve been driven to see the world and experience each unique culture within it. I believe that each place you visit can teach you something important about who you are, and for me, living abroad has made me into the easy-going and friendly person I am today. After living in both Brazil and Chile, my next big move was to California where I lived for 8 years. While I loved living abroad, I couldn’t help but miss my home country. I found myself constantly telling my friends about Chile and how they needed to visit. I wanted them to understand why I loved it so much and wished I could show it to them myself. After experiencing life in the States, I was inspired to return to Chile so I could pursue my dream: to start a tour agency where I could show travelers my beautiful country. As someone who loves learning about new cultures, I’m so happy I have found a job that lets me share my knowledge and love for Chile with like-minded people. Through my tours, I hope to give travelers a newfound appreciation for the region, and maybe even convince a few to stay a while longer.
