    My husband and I booked the Best Private and Personalized City Tour in Montevideo for cruise passengers as we had never been to that city. I was able to stay in contact with the tour operator through WhatsApp which gave me an extra layer of comfort. Our tour guide Alvaro picked us up on time right outside of the cruise terminal. His English was great and he was very knowledgeable about the city. Everywhere we went, someone knew him! He spoke about the history of his city, showed us the old town, the historical rich area, government buildings, beautiful architecture, and of course all of the main attractions. We also escaped the downtown area for a bit and explored the beautiful beaches and the area where many of the embassies are located. Overall we were very happy with this tour and because of the personalized aspect of it, we were able to venture and see areas that appealed to us more. I believe that we got to see double the amount of attractions and probably learnt more about the history and day-to-day life of Uruguay than any tour we would have booked on the ship. Alvaro dropped us off at the Meat Market where we tried some of the local BBQ before we headed back onto the ship. We arrived with plenty of time to spare and enjoyed the entire day. Thank you Andres and Alvaro for everything.

    My husband and I are celebrating part of our honeymoon in Montevideo, Uruguay and have taken 2 tours with Andres/Andrew of Blanco Tours!
    He speaks, Spanish and English; is passionate, knowledgeable, smart, accommodating and FUN! One can tell that he truly enjoys sharing his country and the special areas of the city and outside.
    We had a private walking and driven tour of the city, various monuments, museums, churches and beaches.
    The next day we went skydiving with him and a small group and had a blast!! We enjoyed a beautiful lunch and a ton of laughs.
    We are considering a third tour with him. He also recommended a guide at our next stop!
    Book him in advance!!

    It was a great experience from the start. Javier dedicated plenty of time to us, never rushing us and always providing detailed information throughout the two full days we were with him.
    In various occasions he went beyond expectation in helping us visit every place we wanted to visit, and offer plenty of alternatives to accommodate our liking and interests

    It was an awesome experience, very exciting trip. The guide (Hans) was very professional and passionate about his work.
    We stopped over several places on the way to Punta, visited the zoological gardens and a museum on a cliff.
    On the arrival in Punta first of all we had lunch and then a couple hours of sightseeing. A pleasing experience.
    Highly recommend to call this company for sightseeing tours!

    While the tour guide provided an excellent overview of the Winery, the highlight was the fine dining paired with recommended Bouza wines. It was a very nice meal! The resident male peacock was impressive. Enjoyed the wine 🍷 and will take some back to Canada.

    Marcella gave us a lot of informations during the trip , maybe too much.
    She is a very caring and serious guide.
    The free time at Colonia is very well appreciated.
    The stop at la Granja is also a good idea to discover the uruguayan products.
    This trip is highly advised :)))

    No English speaker. Bus didn’t come to hotel which INVER inform to me. Too late about the return bus to hotel, so I should take UBER to go airport. I never use this company.

    I really enjoy the visit to this Museum. It is easy to find the museum. It is possible to buy the tickets online or pay for it in the same place because there is free wifi on the museum. The guide is really nice and he knows all about the story. There are a lot of details that you can discover in the visit to the museum.
    I am really impressive of the strenght of the survivors. They are an example of what the desire to live is.
    The film really moves you inside.

    Our guide, Marcella, and our driver, Jonathan, took us on a scenic drive to Punta del Este, which was very much worth the four-hour round trip.

    Small-group tours are the next best thing to a private tour. I bought this tour because they cap the group size at 15 people. For this particular tour, we were only 7 so it was so much better. We got picked up by a van, which was spacious and clean. Marcella was so knowledgeable, helpful, and fluent in English and Portuguese. She even made great recommendations on where and what to eat.

    We stopped at Punta Ballena, Museo Casa Pueblo, Punta de la Salina, La Mano (sculpture) and the Enjoy Casino (our Brazilian companions wanted to see the casino) with plenty of time in each spot to explore and take photos. We stopped at the port at noon to walk around and have a leisurely lunch. Before heading home, we also stopped in the center of town to have some ice cream and do some souvenir shopping.

    Highly recommend taking this tour!

    Walking the lanes with original cobble stone surface (from the 1700's) and seeing the Portugese and Spanish architecture examples.
    Very clean and well-preserved.

    The tour was very good and picked us up at our hotel. We then listened to our guide who explained the itinerary and a bit of history. Our first stop was Piriapolis which was charming. We went to the top of the Cero for a great view and photo opportunity. The tour takes you to the Casapueblo which is an amazing tribute to the famous artist - Carlos Paez Vilaro. It looks like Santorini on steroids.
    We then went through the back streets of Punta del Este and our guide explained why it's the home of the "rich and famous."
    We stopped near Play Brava and had some free time to photograph and get a snack.
    It's a long tour but it's worth it.

    Ryan coordinated a great trip for our short time in Montevideo. He was really on point with tips on dinner and other sites beyond our booked tour with his company. We ended up booking 2 tours with him. One was a phenomenal 2 winery tour with Javier. Which he was great company. The second was a private city tour with Miguel. In both tours we were enjoying our time that they went longer than planned but we greatly appreciated the personal touch. I will end, booking with Ryan means a memorable experience and enjoyable trip in Uruguay.
