I went to a Penarol game, spur of the moment, with Ignacio and Fanaticos Futbol Tours. (I heard about the game and Fanaticos Futbol Tours through Karen at Guru'guay and Casa Sarandi.) Ignacio and the van driver picked me up at Casa Sarandi (so convenient!) and we went to a Penarol game. I was so surprised at how easy it... More

Nacho and Franco picked us up where we were staying in the old city and drove us to the historic Centennial Stadium for a game. They took care of everything, transportation, tickets, even a sausage. They ARE futbol fanatics, and seemed to know most of the people in the stadium! All in all, they were great hosts, and I highly... More

Going to a match while in Uruguay was a must for me as a football fan and follower. Fanaticos Futbol Tours was amazing, helpful and so much fun. They picked us up from a easy to find hotel (we were coming in just for the match from one of the beach towns.) and were fun and full of excellent football... More

One of the best thing I have done in Uruguay. I met a lot of really nice people from Wanderers FC and had a greatest time with them drinking beer and eating chorizo. They were really happy to see me there. Something I can really recommend!!

I was taken along to a friendly game at the Centenario between Peñarol and Olimpo of Argentina and really enjoyed the information on the history of the two teams provided by Ignacio and Julio. They had a friend come over during the game who offered me my first taste of mate, too, which was a bonus! A couple of days... More

What a fantastic way to learn about Uruguay's football history. We were taken to the Penarol Museum, where they hand you a replica of the Copa Libertadores (the oldest continental trophy in the world) for picture taking. Next we visited the stadium of Nacional Montevideo, which was the location of the first ever World Cup game to be played in... More

I am not a football fan but these guys make it fun! They have all the inside information and a ton of great anecdotes. I went on the general tour which takes you to two stadiums (both where World Cups were played and are still in use today) and two football museums - the national one and one run by... More

We really enjoyed our trip to the match with our fantastic guides. We were made welcome and enjoyed the game and especially watching the fans who were far more entertaining than the match. They really made the experience much better than we'd have managed on our own
