You will first visit Villa del Mar city, often known as “Ciudad Jardín”; it is an elegant and sophisticated city inspired by the French Riviera. Then, you will cross the picturesque “Reloj de Flores”, you will go all over the “Avenida Perú” along with its traditional “Casino” and its elegant “Hotel del Mar”, which is the first of Chile established in 1930.
Later you will go to “Valparaíso”, which was declared a “World Heritage Site by the UNESCO”. It is also known as the cultural capital of Chile, a Commercial Port and Chilean Navy, University City and Bohemian city. It is a city with a charming, picturesque and historic port. It is called the “Jewell of the Pacific” due to its prevailed and beautiful Pacific Ocean view. The journey includes a tour with a panoramic view of the “National Congress”, the “O’Higgins Park” and “Italy Park”, the “Victoria Square”, “Sotomayor Square” and the “Muelle Prat”, located in the same port.
The tour ends at “Viña Matetic”. The history of “Viña Matetic” begins in 1999 when the Matetic family decided to diversify its businesses and get into the world of wine, strongly trusting the benefits from weather and soils of the “Valle del Rosario”. It was very important to have a professional team to manage this project. Therefore, Alan York (Biodynamic consultant), Ken Bernards (Winemaker Consultant) and Ann Kraemer (Production) joined in 2000; they were able to help the wines of “Matetic Vineyard” reach a high quality. This visit will start with the winery of the vineyard. You will be warmly received by a bilingual guide, who will take you for a tour of the winery, while you enjoy the panoramic view of vineyards.

A mere point in the vast Pacific Ocean, Easter Island (known as Rapa Nui in the native language of the town) is a unique destination, whose remoteness gives it an unmistakable authenticity and an aura of mystery.
Explore the pink sand beaches of Rapa Nui, its volcanic cones and windswept meadows, and of course, the monumental Moai statues, more than 1,000 of them silently testify of a lost and complex society. This afternoon enjoy a half-day excursion: Looking Towards the Stars During the last period of the moai era (the most important of Rapa Nui´s culture), the descendants of the Polynesian navigators turned their eyes toward the sky. We will take you to the archaeological sites that tell of the connection between the islanders and the universe. Ahu (=altars) and moai (=statues) prove the magnificent development of megalithic construction with astronomical orientation. This tour mainly focuses on the central part of the island and all of the great archaeological features that can be found within it. Moreover, all of the visited points represent ancient sites that were created and used during the end of the Ahu Moai Phase. These sites have new cultural developments especially shown in the Ahu.
