Meeting at the main square, corner of the church.

Breakfast & refreshing drink

After an introduction on Atacameñan and Andean history and culture – always with a focus on food – we have a delicious breakfast in one of San Pedro´s most iconic cafés, with the best bread and different local products. After that we visit a famous street stand to try the most Chilean refreshment drink.

Visit to a craft brewery

Before midday we spend half an hour getting to know a craft brewery, it´s products and the process of beer brewing – with local flavours! 

Lunch in 2 parts

We taste typical Chilean and international dishes with Andean influences in 2 restaurants, accompanied by craft beer and locally flavoured pisco sour. There´s a stroll through more traditional (and less touristy) parts of San Pedro between the tastings – including a surprise tasting.  

Dessert and Infusion

After lots of food and delicious drinks a refreshing dessert awaits us. We then finish the tour around 2pm with an infusion made from a local herb that has been used for centuries by the local people for a good digestion.
