Travel designers since 1977

For over four decades we have been exploring Peru, gaining a deeper knowledge and creating personalized experiences for our travelers. An increased interest from our clients made it possible to start our own operations in Argentina and Chile in 2013. We consider ourselves to be an old start-up company as we are constantly changing, pivoting, rethinking and tinkering. Many of our journeys include an element of sustainable tourism, aiming to make a positive impact on society, the environment and the economy. Setours today is still a Peruvian-Austrian family-run travel designer and from 2017 have grown into a talented cosmopolitan team across 2 continents, driven by passion, attention to detail and a love for our destinations.

As previously mentioned, we went on an inspection trip to Chile and took part in the tours from our new product offering in Santiago. This specific 3-hour journey combines history, traditional snacks and art together into one highly informative and powerful message. We began at the General Cemetery, which for us was a beautiful synergy between historic facts, eye-opening art installations and powerful real-life representations of the societal class separation in Chile. From here, we swapped out the subject matter for something a little more light-hearted as we headed into the lively neighborhood of Lastarria, a center for cultural activity, with cinemas, theaters, museums, restaurants and bars where we enjoyed one of the most delicious empanadas we have ever tasted! With our tummies full, it was time to make our way to the GAM or ‘The Centre Gabriela Mistral’, a cultural center that seeks to promote the performing arts and music and also features some fascinating local Chilean history. The last of the city strolls was reserved for the beautifully quaint and colorful ‘Barrio Italia, dotted with building with colorful facades and home to casual bohemian restaurants, pizza places, and gelaterias, established in the 19th-century by Italian migrants, a true hidden gem. We again took the opportunity to explore the boutique shops and art galleries for some memorabilia before making our way back to the hotel. • • • • #santiagodechile #santiago #cementeriogeneraldesantiago #santiagocemetery #lastarriasantiago #lastarria #barrioitalia #barriolastarria #centroculturalgabrielamistral #setourssa #setourstips

We went on a 4-hour exploration with the subway in Santiago as a part of our inspection of our new product offering in Chile. We traveled through 3 visually contrasting neighborhoods as we explored some picturesque streets dotted with neo-classical buildings, witnessed some awe-inspiring 18th-century landmarks and even took a trip to the crest of San Cristobal Hill aboard an old funicular where we enjoyed unparalleled views over the city below. Before we bid farewell to our guide, we made sure that we filled our bags with some local treasures at the arts and crafts market which has an abundance of handcrafted goodies for all. A highly recommended tour for those who enjoy a city tour with a bit of a difference. • • • • #santiago #santiagodechile #santiagounderground #santiagosubway #santiagocitytour #metropolitancathedral #santiagopalace #sancristobal #setourssa #setourstips

Desert, sun, salt & the Andes in one place! . . One of the most iconic places in San Pedro de Atacama is the Moon Valley. Though looking for a less known attraction with similar breathtaking views is that we ended up this time in Death Valley. Close to Moon Valley and only a few minute-drive from San Pedro we arrive before sunset. Despite the strong wind it was possible to see the 'Domeyko' and the Andes mountain ranges, the Cordillera de la Sal but also San Pedro de Atacama town from the distance. Don't forget to bring sunglasses and a hat to protect from the sun. For adventorous souls sandboarding might be the visit's highlight! . . . . . #visitchile #sanpedrodeatacama #valledelamuerte #deathvalley #desertadventure #desertanddunes #cordilleradelasal #atacamachile #setourstips

Sheila Hicks, the world’s most important textile artist in Santiago! . . After a visit we can only recommend this exhibition at the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art in Santiago de Chile. Only until January 31st “I often make a statement about my feelings regarding the world using textiles as my language.” And this is what you feel once you enter the rooms. The American artist, a trained painter from Yale University School of Art became interested in textiles in 1956 while studying Latin American art. Her artistic investigation began during a trip to Chile at the end of the 1950s and included later other countries worldwide. With 5 decades in her artistic career, the work of Sheila Hicks has been displayed in prominent museums including the Centre Pompidou and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Tate in London, and the High Line Park in New York. The exhibition in Santiago ‘REENCUENTRO’ shows her journey through Chile and South America, her textile journey and the analogy between her work, Andean weavings, and pre-Columbian architecture. Don’t miss it! . . . . #sheilahicks #museodearteprecolombino #asantiagodechile_arte #artinsouthamerica #whattodoinsantiago #textiles #artsinchile #santiagomuseumofart #reencuentro #santiagodechile #vividcolors #MuseoChilenodeArtePrecolombino #setourstips

As of the 23rd January 2020, the Inca Trail will be closed until further notice. Due to heavy rainfall and unfavorable climate conditions, the Ministry of Culture have decided to close the trail earlier than anticipated. We are confident that it will re-open to the public as per normal on the 1st of March and will keep you updated as the date draws closer. • • • • #incatrail #setourssa #setourstips #peruannouncement #peru #trailtomachupicchu

While on an inspection tour through Chile, we decided to do things a little different and to explore a completely different side to Santiago with the Feminist Tour, so, we picked up one of our colleagues from our office in Santiago and headed off on this incredibly exciting and eye-opening tour through the history of gender equality in Chile. During the tour, we got to explore a number of incredible sites throughout the city such as the Archivo Nacional, San Francisco Church, Plaza de Armas and the Santiago Cathedral to name but a few. We also stopped over at a store that is owned by two women that sell Chilean only products, as well as a coffee shop & bar where we enjoyed a glass of wine and some snacks. We highly recommend taking this city tour when traveling through Santiago as it really is an incredibly informative journey and one that will stick with you for years to come!! • • • • • #chile #santiagochile #feminismtour #citytoursantiago #setourssa #ilovechile #therealchile #setourstips
