Santaigo Food Markets tour

I consistently enjoy the “free” tours offered around the world.

This time I took the TOURS 4 TIPS itinerary in Santiago, Chile billed as “SANTIAGO OFFBEAT“.

We met in front of the Museum of Fine Arts.

Guides successful at working for tips are superb. Camillo has a degree in Sociology and excellent insight into the politics of his nation.


I called this tour EAT YOURSELF TO DEATH as you first tour some of the biggest and best food markets in South America … then finish at the largest cemetery in South America. (2.5 million souls)

We walked 3 different markets: fish & sea food, meat and then fruits & vegetables.

Some of the best inexpensive restaurants in Santiago are to be found here.

Mercado Central de Santiago

kilo strawberries less than $1.50

Our guide had 21 english speaking tourists in his group. I gave him US $15. Do the math.

Free tours are very profitable for a quality guide.
