Our guide, Rodrigo, was enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable about the important parts, buildings and parks of Montevideo. Our tour lasted about 2 hours on a sunny day and very low key. He even made suggestions of places to eat within the area we were and around Montevideo. The day was very warm, but Rodrigo kept us along the shady sides of the street so it was pleasant. He was a very good guide.

Despite the small group at the 3pm tour, Rodrigo kept us engaged and entertained with interesting stories and history about both Montevideo and Uruguay as a whole. He spoke clear English with a cool local accent and gave us great insight into Uruguay’s cultural traditions and points of pride. Would definitely join another tour through this company.

My wife and I took the historical walking tour in the old city with Juan Pablo AKA John Paul and had a wonderful experience. He has an excellent knowledge of the History of Uruguay which he loves to share.

Would highly recommend.

It was a very interesting Tour. Rodrigo was our guide and he was very confident and well informed while talking. Totally recommend him. He also left enough space for asking questions during the tour and even took the time for a talk after the walk ends. Five stars! 🔝

Went into the tour knowing close to nothing about Uruguay and Montevideo, but our guide Juan Pablo helped fill in the gaps and more. The tour covers a wide range of topics, including the history and culture (including nightlife culture!) of Uruguay. The tour was held at the right pace for me, and since we didn't have a big group we were allowed quite some degree of flexibility. Juan Pablo was a friendly and funny guide who conducted the tour in perfect English. It was a great introduction to Uruguay and Montevideo.

We did the free waking tour that starts at Plaza Independencia with Rodrigo this past Sunday. It was a great tour and Rodrigo taught us many things about Uruguay’s and Montevideo’s history. Be aware that one of the sites (a church) they normally enter is closed on Sunday. Tour is still great, but if you really want to see the church inside, come a different day.

I have taken multiple free walking tours but this one with Rodrigo did not go very well.
We did the tour in February and we did not move from the main square for 30 minutes.The tour was being dragged on and on although it was advertised for 2 to 2.30 minutes it got dragged on to 3 and 3.15 hours.Also not a good experience from Rodrigo at the end of the tour

We had a really funny and interesting guide (Jorge) who showed us around Montevideo. It took around 2 hours, but it felt really fast. Very good, every one who wants to experience Montevideo should go on one of these tours.

I am running a similar free walking tour company in Prage and am always checking on other free tours when travelling around the world. Free Walking Tour Montevideo did definitely not disappoint! I loved how relaxed the tour was (we even sat under a tree for a moment) and how friendly and knowledgable our guide Rodrigo was. I think without this tour my stay in Montevideo would have been incomplete. Big thanks to Rodrigo for your great work and to María for organizing everything. Best wishes, Michal, Free Walking Tour Prague

We did the free walking tour of Pocitos today with Juan and it was fantastic!
We really enjoyed the tour and Juan was the perfect guide!
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and his English was excellent.
He took his time, answered all our questions, and we had some great conversation.
We also did the Ciudad Vieja tour on Friday morning with Rodrigo, and that was great as well.
Also a very knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humor!!
Great tours!
