Exclusive Best of Montevideo

A good overview
April 02, 2020
We took advantage of this tour from our cruise ship. The directions for meeting this tour were clear and accurate with flexible options of returning to the cruise port or being dropped off in locations in town. Our guide spoke excellent English and provided us with a very good overview of Montevideo

This tour is basically a drive around Montevideo. The day we did it, there was a political presentation so they had to modify it as we couldn't go to the main area of town. Still, in doing so, the tour was good and showed us the highlights of the area.

The sightseeing tour of Montevideo was excellent. Our guide was entertaining and full of knowledge of the city. She took us to amazing viewpoints, and gave us a great sense of the culture and important historical buildings of the people of Motevideo. Definitely worth the time to take this tour.

2 modern buses arrived on time, were clean, had working AC, but no WiFi. The guide on our coach spoke excellent English and was very informative about the history, achievements and challenges of modern Uruguay. The tour hits all the important sights and makes short stops at monuments, parks and govt. buildings. This is a non-shopping tour but we were given the option to leave the tour (just before its return to the harbor) and to walk back several blocks through a pedestrian mall which allowed for a more intimate view of city life and some shopping. I felt that Montevideo was a very "liveable" city and left with a favorable impression of the country as a whole thanks to this enlightening tour.

Lovely city! It was a very hot day, so seeing the city in an A/C bus was just perfect. Driving along La Rambla, seeing all the different neighborhoods and the downtown was perfect. We had 3 stops I believe to get out, stretch your legs and take photos. It was about $10 per person less that the same offered through the ship. Bus was easy to find. I have used this company on many trips now and always am satisfied.

you get an overview of Montevideo, no depth at any location, and you stop at only 4-6 places on this tour. you see the rambla, stop at the 'montevideo' sign, government center [no entry], soccer stadium. but if you are interested in ay specific sites, would suggest just going to those..

Visiting a country capital on a Sunday has pluses and minuses; on the plus side traffic was light and it was possible to reach sites of interest. On the opposite side stores and museums were closed! A good guide led us in a VIP bus (superb + WIFI). This tour provides good information on a modern city, its population, history, points of interest and offers opportunities for good photography. Upon return those who wished were dropped at the port market where tourist could shop or have lunch in traditional style open pit cooking restaurants.

Picked up at the cruise ship dock in a new bus. Guide spoke excellent English. Took us to see the highlights of Montevideo. Saw the affluent living area, the beaches which they have kept all public, the huge oxen and cart bronze statue. Our guide gave us an insight into living in Uruguay. Dropped us at the pedestrian street to make out own way back to the ship after a stop for lunch at the local market. Very good barbequed meat. Easy trip and just a good length. Got out to see areas we would not have been able to reach on our own from the ship in the time we had.

Informative Tour of Charming Montevideo
February 17, 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Montevideo. The bus and tour leader drove us past lovely beaches, lovely mansions, and historical monuments. We stopped at a few locales for panoramic photos. We finally ended up in the downtown where we were able to either return to the ship, or get out and walk thru the Sunday market to see more of the city. We chose the latter. It was an easy walk back and we bought a painting for $40 from a street artist who painted charming naifs. A very enjoyable and informative trip -- I learned so much more about Uruguay and its place in Southern Cone of LA history. Very well done.
