They say Buenos Aires is the Paris of South America. Totally agree. Went on 4 hour Free Walking Tour of downtown area. Lots of buses and a great subway system. The best part of the entire cruise. Could have spent 3 or 4 days there easily.

Beautiful port with great food and wine and lots of shopping. This is the place to buy a penguin souvenir. We did a private helicopter tour and loved it!

Santiago is absolutely fantastic. Very contemporary arts scene and historic center of Chile. Great wines to sample and enjoy day trips out to the vineyards.
Puerto Montt

Puerto Montt itself is just a transport hub, but it is the gateway to the Chilean Lake District. Be sure to visit the Volcan Osorno, Lago Todos los Santos and the falls at Petrohué.
