ITINERARY CHANGES Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It is important that you review this information prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays, or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in-country. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary seasonally to ensure our travellers have the best experience. Your tour leader will keep you up to date with any such changes once on tour. OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES A selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travellers are listed in the day-to-day itinerary. This isn't an exhaustive list and should be used as a guide only for some of what might be available. Prices are approximate, are for entrance only, and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability, and maybe on a join-in basis. It may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. When it's recommended that travellers pre-book these activities, look for a note in the Special Information section of the day-to-day itinerary. For most, they can either be organised independently on the day, or let your leader know you are interested in the Group Meeting and they can assist. Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high-risk activities not listed above have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and leaders are unable to assist you with organising these activities. Activities that contravene our Responsible Travel policies are also not listed. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk.

Day 1 - Santiago
Welcome to Santiago! On arrival at Santiago's Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport, you will be met by a Peregrine representative and transferred to a hotel in the city. Please look for your transfer guide at the airport – they will be holding a sign with your name on it. Once you have checked into your hotel, the remainder of your first day will be free until an important welcome briefing at 6 pm.
Day 2 - Santiago
This morning you will be picked up from your hotel at approximately 9 am. With a local guide, take a walking tour of Santiago to visit some of the city’s many outstanding attractions. Stop by the Plaza de Armas and have a look at the cathedral before heading across to La Moneda Palace. Continue through the main avenues of old Santiago, across the Bohemian neighbourhood of Bellavista and up the San Cristobal Hill for a panoramic view of the city framed by the Andes. Saunter past elegant residential neighbourhoods and the shopping and financial districts. Your walking tour ends at the artisan village of Los Graneros Del Alba, where local craftspeople can be seen at work on unique wares. This afternoon, head out of town to the Concha y Toro vineyard, located in Pirque in the Maipo Canyon. This winery, founded in 1883, is one of Chile’s most renowned. The cellars, built with materials dating back to the 18th century, are situated six metres underground to maintain the ideal temperature needed for fine wines. Walk around this estate before heading to the cellars to learn about some of the different stages involved in the local winemaking process. What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to taste some of their acclaimed wines. Return to Santiago for the night, perhaps heading out independently to taste some regional specialities, like pebre – a hot chilli salsa accompaniment.
Day 3 - Santiago
Your Independent Experience will come to an end today after breakfast. You will be transferred to the airport for your onward flight, so please ensure you advised of your flight details when you book your Santiago Experience.
