Amazing tour of an amazing city. The most noticeable thing was how clean the place was. Completely litter and garbage free. It was a pleasure being on the streets. People were friendly and the street art was out of this world. So many varieties of art from giant murals to bronze statues. The main square was beautiful and it was delightful to see the famous buildings. Our City tour took us on the short journey out of the city and to the seaside. The beach was fabulous and we came across more fabulous street art. Our tour guide (Mercedes) was clear, articulate and extremely knowledgeable, probably the best we have ever had in South America.

We booked through Tour Guide Ushuaia and had a group of 13 from our cruise ship. Our guide was Hebert Sismondi, and he was a delight. Showed us all around the city, explained everything we were seeing, then gave us time to wander on our own. His van was clean and roomy, and the AC worked great on this hot day! He then took all of us to his lovely, quiet home for an asado prepared by him and his wife and daughter and served on their shaded patio out back. We were treated like family! Several different meats and veggies grilled over an open wood fire, salad, dessert, soft drinks, bottled water, and wine! It was a lovely day and I would definitely love to do it again! Thanks, Hebert!

We booked the tour of Montevideo independently from our cruise ship based on reviews we read on TripAdvisor. Our guide Jaime Gutierrez Castro was outstanding. Traveling with him is like traveling with the Godfather of Uruguay. He knows everything and everyone. The city itself is pretty but not overwhelming with special sights. He did take us to every area in order to show us city views, ocean views, beach views as well as a stop at the casino and market. He helped us with purchases of local items. He is extremely friendly and speaks English well so there’s no issue in understanding him. We highly recommend Jaime as a tour guide.

A leisurely walking tour that takes you to the most interesting places and combines with the local history. An optional donation is worth giving to keep the offer alive
