Santiago de Chile

Chile’s capital has become one of the most visited cities in South America. Surrounded by the beautiful Andes mountain range, Santiago is a cosmopolitan metropolis full of life, culture, and diversity. Located only two hours away from the Chilean coast and the winemaking region of Santa Cruz, this city is the perfect landing point to start an adventure in Chile or in other South-American countries. With 7 million of inhabitants, Santiago offers a good location and natural areas, but also historical neighborhoods from the colonial era, people representative of the Chilean culture and also places where to try local food. In Santiago, you can discover new things every day.

I was absolutely amazed by the beauty of the landscapes there, the snowy mountains, the waterfalls..! But the coolest thing is that you feel you’re hanging out with friends, not on a traditional tour. Totally recommended!! Camilo Rodriguez

A great day with Ignacio and his family!

The best way to learn a city is to do is with somebody who lives there. On the tour day we had a really bad wether: it was cold, windy and raining. And I was cold. But in spite of this it was a great day and a great tour. I saw a lot and got a lot of information about Chile, people and their life. It was very interesting for me. To the end of the tour I enjoyed the Chilean hospitality with Ignacio and her great parents. I hope I see them again! Katarzyna L


Friendly and informative

Going to Santiago was not really in our plans, we just came from Mendoza and was a thing decided from one day to another, so we had no idea of what to see or to do and decided to take a tour. This is the best thing we could do as we did it in our frist day and gave us an amazing historical perspective of the city and the life of the chileans. My recommendation is to do this on your first day, and dont forget to bring a good pair of sneakers, as the long is not tyring but you need to be prepared. Christian M

Ignacio Pérez G.

Co - Founder and Guide

Ignacio was born in Santiago, and has four years of experience in the field of tourism. During his childhood, he went to live on Easter Island. There, he began to learn other languages and made friends from all over the world.
His interest and curiosity about languages, culture, business and human relationships increased throughout the years and inspired him to search for a profession that allowed him to combine all of these subjects. In 2010, he began to study tourism engineering, finishing with success in 2014. Today, he continues studying, in pursuit of a master´s degree in business.

While he was studying, Ignacio met his friend and partner Sven Bornemann. Soon after City Trekking Guide was born. Our goal is to provide private, friendly, amusing and high-quality travel guide services to those who decide to enjoy the capital and its surrounding areas as a Chilean would.

These experiences have offered him a new perspective of the world. When his brother Ignacio and Sven approached him with the opportunity to create the company, he agreed without hesitation.

Juliette Boyer

Juliette Boyer

Communication officer and translator

As a student of ISIT Paris, Juliette had to work as an intern abroad for several months, so she decided to spend the summer of 2014 in Chile in order to deepen her knowledge of Spanish language and discover South-America.
In Santiago, she met Ignacio, Fernando and Sven and quickly became interested in their company. She decided to work for City Trekking Guide as a communication director and translator in French and English, but only as a freelance since she was already an intern at LAR Gestión y Desarrollo, a sustainable architecture and urbanism company.
Just like her fellow workers, Juliette likes discovering new places and meeting new people. After taking several tours with Ignacio and Fernando, she can legitimately declare that their service has been tested and approved !
