Mauro, our guide, driver and native to Montevideo, was very informative! His English was perfect! Because is was a private tour we could get out and shop at the markets for a few trinkets or browse through the church a bit longer and not worry. South Experiences specialises in cruise passengers so no worries about the ship docking late or getting back to the ship on time as they are totally flexible! At one point Mauro realised that the dry air was giving me a dry throat and he stopped to buy water and Halls to smooth my throat! Awesome! Thanks for a fabulous tour!

Can’t speak highly enough of this experience that allowed my wife who has mobility issues to see the highlights of this beautiful city in absolute comfort and at our own pace. Our driver guides passion for this city was evident throughout the commentary he provided.

Now, you don't need to be "afraid" of land tours, when you are in a cruise!!! We were a crazy group of 14, that started our cruise in Buenos Aires. Our first stop Montevideo, where a very nice gentleman called Diego was waiting for us. He introduced us to our guide Alicia, a lovely young lady, funny and knowledgeable. They surprised us with a lovely van, that included Wi-Fi.
We had the chance to hear from Diego about his company SOUTHEXPERIENCES, and he really impressed us, and he offered us tours in Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia, at a very good rate. Real value for money. After our tour of Montevideo, we cruised to Puerto Madryn, where we did the tour to Punta Tombo, where we visited a huge pinguin reserve. Have to admit that Diego and his staff showed great professionalism, what lead us to book all the tours with them, including our transportation to the hotel in Santiago, where we stayed 3 days, and then a lovely surprise, a visit to a local winery, where we tasted local wines. I really want to recommend SouthExperiences, their staff, guides and specially Mr Diego.
