Great tour. Bus was 30 min deleted but in this business it is normal. Company pick up my in Hotel . We was drive 90 min to first stop . This place is on the peak mountain and is great view to the beautiful city Piriapolis . Next stop was Museo Casapueblo. Last stop was a Punta del Este . City was very nice . We spent there 2 hours. Good shopping and restaurant. Great place for walking. Alter that we was traveling almost 2 hours back to Montevideo . We had a very nice animator and she was very very nice and she gave as many interesting information.

Wow! What a great tour. I loved getting out into other parts of Uruguay and hearing about the history of the country. The stop at Casapueblo was a highlight. Also, Marcella- the tour guide was very kind and made sure i was understanding all that was happening as I was the only English speaker on the bus. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. Looking forward to others as well!

Muito gostosa a visita, porem podíamos ficar 1 hora a mais por la rsrsrs... mas a Guia Carmem foi fantástica, muito simpatica a atenciosa com todos, vale muito a pena conhecer Punta Del Est.

it was good, however i would have liked to have more photo shoot opportunities on the way there as the bus does not stop except for a quick coffee on top of the hill

The guide was super nice and I had a great time in the city.
