Enjoy a day of sightseeing and a historical tour. It's just you, your companions, and your personal guide and driver for this wonderful 4 hours tour of all major attractions in the city of Punta Arenas. This tour will take you to Cerro Mirador La Cruz, where you can get a fantastic panoramic view of all the city. You will also visit the main square (Muñoz Gamero Square) surrounded by ancient mansions, the Cathedral,  the Archaelogical Museum, and to one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. This is a private small-group tour with a maximum of 10 travelers.
Punta Arenas is the second most prosperous city in Chile, with the second highest Per Capita figures in the country. This place also has different color roofs, in order to identify the houses, due to the weather conditions; this is the only City in Chile where this is done. Leaving the Punta Arenas Pier, you’ll ride along the coast, which overlooks the Magellan Strait, making your way to the “La Cruz” View Point and Promenade. Here, you will get a brief talk about the city, and how the Yugoslavian, German and British immigrants, amongst others, made this place flourish.   After this you’ll visit the Main Square of Punta Arenas, Muñoz Gamero, locally known as “La Plaza de la Pata del Indio” or the “Indian’s Foot” Square. In this Square you have various little Artisan shops, the Cathedral, the Archaeological Museum, and a part of the Financial district. The tour then continues towards the Sara Braun Museum, and then proceed towards the Maggiorino Borgatello Salesian Museum, driving through the main avenues of the city.  You will also visit the Patagonia Institute, boasting a collection of old local cars and machinery.  After this, you’ll see one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world, where the tombs of the pioneers have been exceptionally preserved among well-kept gardens and cypress stands.
