What you'll do

I will pick you up from your accommodation in the morning and first we will visit different points along the Rambla (Promenade) from where we will be able to enjoy some amazing views of the city.

Later on, we’ll head to Ciudad Vieja (Old City) to appreciate its beautiful architecture and rich history, including Independence Square and other beautiful squares such as Zabala and Constitution. We'll also see Banco República building and the Metropolitan Cathedral.
After that, we will be heading to Mercado del Puerto where you can have authentic Uruguayan Asado if you wish or the Chivito, Uruguayan national dish (at your own cost).

From there, we will go to Prado to see some of the old residential mansions and beautiful parks. We’ll also stop at the massive Parliament House for photos. First we will stop at the gorgeous early 19th century cerro fortress, the highest point of the city.

The tour will be enjoyed in a comfortable and modern car and water and some snacks will be available.

During the comprehensive tour, I will be telling you about Uruguayan history and stories.

When you book the Private Group option, I can also tailor the tour to your likings and add more places, as I'm completely flexible, for example if you like soccer, art, etc etc

I have been on easily 100 tours and this one was by far the best. Picked up promptly on time my tour was everything I expected and more. His car was super clean and his commentary was well informed and interesting. My rating out if 10 would be an 11!!!!

This tour was the highlight of my Argentina / Uruguay adventure! Prior to the tour I provided Javier with a few things I like to see when I visit cities. He made sure I saw all of them! Javier is a friendly, knowledgeable, and great guy! He picked me up at my hotel at 10:00 AM in his vehicle and our first stop was Ciudad Vieja (Old City). We walked around this part of the city while Javier explained buildings and the history of the country. He is like a walking encyclopedia! After experiencing the Old City, we visited other areas of the city and we ended with lunch in the Carrasco neighborhood. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Montevideo! Thanks for making my visit to Montevideo so memorable, Javier!

We had a lovely day with Javier, who showed us many different sides of Montevideo. He really adapted the experience to our wishes, and with great knowledge and expertise he got us to learn a lot about Uruguay and Montevideo. Communication before, during and also after the tour was excellent, and we would love to repeat the experience in the future. Don’t miss out on this truly amazing guide!
