This night tour was really awesome! Mónica is a very good, competent and also very nice guide and explained everything very well, in an entertaining and interesting way (also with many pictures). Here you get information about Santiago that you don't get with any other tour. I can recommend this tour to everyone and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thumbs up!
