What people are saying about Montevideo

There were three of us and it was great. Insights into the old town, drive along the sea and across the city back again. Together with our guides' explanations about the country and its people, it was an interesting and instructive day. The enthusiasm of our guides about "their" city and "their" country was carried over to us. We have been Urugay fans ever since

Alberto is a very knowledgeable guide who speaks excellent English. We'd walked around many if the areas covered in the tour but it wasn't until Alberto explained the sights and the history behind them that we actually saw them. Very enjoyable!

Everything you have to see in Montevideo, plus information about history, culture and politics. Finally, you can work off a little more on the Ramla .. Tour, bikes and guide exelente.

The Guide Martin is exceptional. Great way to see the old city and sunset at The Ramble.

Great tour in both inside the city and around the see
