HIGHLIGHTS
  • Visit the home museum of Nobel Prizewinning poet Pablo Neruda in Isla Negra
  • Relax during a visit to Matetic Vineyard for a winery tour and tasting
  • Shop for local handicrafts and try traditional Chilean food in Pomaire
  • Enjoy a relaxing day away from the hustle and bustle of the city in the coastal town
Find inspiration at Isla Negra with the constant sights and sounds of the waves hitting the rocks on the shore.

Nobel Prize in Poetry winner Pablo Neruda built his house overlooking the Pacific Ocean in search of inspiration in this quiet seaside town. He constructed the building to resemble the interior of a ship, filled with seashells, mementos and treasures from the sea. Gain fascinating insight into Neruda’s eccentric life and works with a tour of his house museum.

We then go for a tour and tasting at Matetic Wine Vineyard, located in the Rosario Valley. The visit begins at the wine cellar reception. This is the perfect place to learn all about the history of the vineyard, organic and biodynamic agriculture and the process of winemaking, while enjoying panoramic views of the Corralillo vines. The tank rooms, the beautiful, peaceful aging room and the architecture of the winery are all highlights of the visit. The tour ends with a wine tasting, either in the underground tasting room or on the outdoor terrace overlooking the vines.

After the wine tasting, we continue our journey to Pomaire, known for its interesting clay pottery and other handicrafts. Pomaire is a wonderful place to visit. This town became an artisan hotspot because of natural clay deposits in the nearby land, causing the pottery industry to boom here. Pomaire is also known for being the home of the largest “empanadas” in Chile!

This is a great and relaxing day out of the city!

Jan's review for another Chile Dream Tours tour
“Our 8 day visit to Chile included two highlights on THIS tour. Sean took us about an hour or so outside of Santiago to Quintessence Criadero and Boutique. We had an "up close and personal" experience with this Alpaca farm and business. Sean's own enthusiastic interest in these animals was reflected in his translations of the tour guide's information. This is not only a tour for animal lover's but for Textile lovers. The story of the evolution of this farm and business is delightful. Knitters: Baby Alpaca Yarn is available for purchase! We also went to the coast for a terrific lunch by the sea and then PENGUINS. Near the town of Cachagua , Chile, we hiked on a stone pathway on Zapallar Beach to a point to view the Humbolt ()Penguins . The Island where they reside is a protected area. Sean had binoculars available for up-close viewing, too. Sean's generosity with his enthusiasm and knowledge made this a 5 star tour.”

Owen's review for another Chile Dream Tours tour
“A huge thank you to Sean for an excellent tour. His organisational skills made this fantastic tour of the Maipo Canyon a dream. We were picked up from our accommodation at 8am and were taken to our wine tasting then horse back ride by the excellent guide Sean. The ride had stunning scenery throughout. Being a first-language English speaker he informed us of the plan for the day and explained much of the history of the country, the area and of the tour destinations. He was also able to be flexible with our drop off destination at the end of the day. Highly recommended.”

Simon's review for another Chile Dream Tours tour
“We had a very good day out in the Maipo Valley visiting a couple of terrific wineries with Sean from Chile Dream Tours. The Santa Rita and Concha y Torro Vineyards are beautiful properties with excellent wines. Tastings were great. Lunch was at a little community based restaurant between the two wineries and was of excellent quality. Sean is a very good host and the late model vehicle was very comfortable. A top day!”
