With a lot of humour, Jose did a fantastic tour for us! It lasts around 2 hours and takes you through cuidad vieja (old city) and important places in Uruguayan history along the way. Gracias, Jose!

We went for the walking tour with the guide Cintia and she was very knowledgeable about the city and country history. We had an enjoyable tour and we went back to check spots recommended by her.

We only had 7 hours in Montevideo, so we decided to take the walking tour. Cynthia was an excellent guide. The group was large but she was able to keep the attention of all. Lots of great information was shared.

At least it was better than in Buenos Aires, where they would lead 50 people along crowded streets and you couldn't hear them. In Montevideo, the numbers are smaller and the streets quieter, so you can get around easily and can easily hear the guide....More
