I am Myriam and I have been working in the field of tourism since 1999 (hotels and travel agencies) but I always wanted to be a guide. I made my dream come true in 2007, falling in love with my country, my city, and its history and charming cute places. I also have been leading groups through Chile and Argentina for the last 4 years, but I miss guiding in my hometown.
I am 100% Chilean and I have lived my entire life in Santiago, but traveled abroad and through Chile extensively.
I would be honored to have the opportunity to introduce my homeland to you.
I love welcoming foreigners to the country I love so much and the city where I grew up.
I like to share my knowledge about history, wine, people and culture.
I will guide you in Santiago and its surrounding areas with standard tours that I offer, as well as customized tours, tailored to meet your needs, both with a view as a local would see it . Including less crowded places - off the beaten path whenever possible.
Do you want to learn why are we called the British of South America? Why we have a sweet tooth? Why are we having a blooming economy, culture & gastronomy now and not before? Why people of almost every Latin American country make fun of the Chilean spanish? I invite you to learn this and much more with interesting and juicy stories of Chile.
I am looking forward to meeting you in Santiago and give you a most unforgetable travel experience.
See you soon!!!
A Recent Review of this guide
Tours by locals was a great way for us to see the city we were "stuck in" for several days because of the pandemic. Miriam, our guide, was so gracious to squeeze our group into her busy schedule with very short notice. She was knowledgeable and interesting and passionate in her delivery. Some in our group signed up right away for more the next day!

I wil not drive myself but hire a driver and a van (or accompany you in your vehicle) on the tour that requires driving ( I like to focus on the guiding)
