At a very young age I learned that: "Travel is the one thing you buy that makes you richer". Since then I have traveled to numerous countries and called many places my home.
On my first visit to Chile in 2005, I fell in love with this country and decided to return and settle in Santiago in 2011. I love this city with all its contrasts and I like showing its hidden corners to travelers from around the world.
Even though Santiago is often perceived by visitors as a passing location on the way to some more famous Latin-American destinations, this diverse city is so much more than that. Join me on my walking tours and see it in all its beauty!
Learn about Chile's rich past and find out how it shaped the present of the country and its people! Explore the local culture and traditions, the food, art and architecture, and experience what it is like to be a Chilean, even if only for one day!
As a traveler I am very curious, always looking to deepen my knowledge. As a host I enjoy making other travelers feel "at home" in my city. I will be happy to share my insights and my favorite places with you, to help you make the most out of your time in Santiago and create beautiful memories that will last long after you return home.
A Recent Review of this guide
Larisa was awesome. She speaks perfect English. She was flexible and accommodating. Knowledgeable and all around super fun. People along the route knew her and it was obvious they genuinely liked her. She even knew the back story of the sopapillas vendor on the corner at the market.

I do not drive during my tours as I prefer to focus on guiding. For the tours that require transportation I will hire a trusted professional driver.
