Where you'll be

In the first instance we will border what was at one time the walled city, built in the 18th century by order of the Spanish Crown where 100 years later it is ordered to be demolished due to the great demographic growth.
At the same time we will discover each name of the picturesque streets and buildings of different styles, whether they are the first with a colonial style, colonial neoclassicism, such controversial Art Deco and Art Nouveau.

Fue una experiencia increíble. Guzmán es una persona inteligente, que habla muy bien y tiene uno gran conocimiento sobre todos los puntos de la viaje, además de contar sobre la cultura, eventos y situación del país. Además del español, también se expresa muy bien en portugués. iUna excelente experiencia que recomiendo a todos los que van a visitar Uruguay!

Guzman did a super job of sharing the history of Montevideo with our group of four as we walked around the old town. We had no idea of the prevalence of the Masonic culture and influence of the founding theories of the U.S.A.'s constitution. Very informative! We would absolutely recommend a walking tour with Guzman.

Tour maravilhoso do começo ao fim com o Guzman, muito enriquecedor e que me trouxe muito aprendizado sobre Montevideo e o Uruguai. Guzman explica, com muita propriedade, detalhes sobre a história do país, arquitetura, costumes... Com toda certeza, é o melhor tour que você vai encontrar! Obrigada, Guzman, pelo aprendizado e memorável passeio!

Foi excelente! Tivemos que postergar 1 dia para o tour e não houve nenhum problema, remarcamos tranquilamente. Guzmán é muito gente boa, formado em história, sabe tudo e mais um pouco de história, política e cultura latina (não só Uruguaia). Passamos por locais emblemáticos da cidade e nos explicou tudo com todos os detalhes. Foi super personalizado o passeio e a todo momento ele se preocupou em saber se estávamos entendendo bem, ou se tínhamos algumas dúvidas. Viramos amigos por termos gostos políticos parecidos e o amor pelo skateboard. Super recomendado! Se vc tem pouco tempo em Montevideo, e quer saber a fundo sobre a história do local, esse tour é muito recomendo.

Excelente! Guzmán es muy amable y atento, sabe mucho sobre historia, arte y arquitectura de Uruguay. Nos hizo recorrer Ciudad Vieja con otra mirada, visitar Museos que no conocíamos y observar los diferentes estilos arquitectónicos de la ciudad. El tour fue muy divertido y flexible en relación a nuestros intereses! Muchas gracias Guzmán!
