As you journey into the history and culture of Valparaiso, seize this unparalleled opportunity to discover how a once small and insignificant coastal village has come to attain UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

Begin at the old Customs building (1855), traversing the historic quarter for a stop at Plaza Sotomayor and the Monument to the Heroes of Iquique (1888).

Board the El Peral funicular, built in 1901, to climb one of the most significant hills in the region. At the top, you'll find the impressive collections within the Palacio Zanelli Fine Arts Museum, built in 1916.

You will also visit Astoreca Palace, dating back to 1923.

A panoramic drive through the city follows, as your knowledgeable guide offers an informative commentary. Visit Villa Victoria, which houses the Valparaíso Heritage Interpretation Center. Engaging exhibits abound at this recently-restored site, providing a deeper understanding of the region's commercial development.

Enjoy a snack, including a warm beverage, handmade pastries and a freshly-prepared sandwich. Conclude your tour with a transfer to Santiago Airport.

Notes: Option Available only to guest whose cruise ends in San Antonio. Guests with flights departing after 6 PM, and/or guest who have booked through Holland America Line a post-cruise stay at Sheraton Santiago Hotel. If you have already purchased an airport/hotel transfer with your cruise booking, it will be refunded on board the ship, as this excursion automatically includes a transfer.
