Gabriel C.

Montevideo, Uruguay

Hello, welcome to Uruguay!!! I am Gabriel and I will be very pleased to take you, your family or friends through a memorable sightseeing trip and a fun architectural outing.

You will learn about our odd history that made Uruguay a special place in South America.
This city has typical Art Deco Buildings built since 1920 to 1950 like you would find in Miami.
You can pick from one of my prepared tours, or let me know what you would like to see and I will customize a tour for you.

Uruguay certainly is a vibrant and exciting place to live, and to visit. Overall, happiness is said to depend much on satisfaction in different life domains, one of which is leisure travel.

Montevideo is a seaside city, with idyllic views all around. You will also learn Uruguay's not known and interesting history facts and stories, Uruguayan people's background and culture.

I have lived one year in the States and graduated in the Joliet Township HS, so I speak English fluently.

After college I studied History of Art and Architecture, I'm a passionate about World History, learning a lot about Uruguay's and Latin America's.

I will be glad to assist you about transfers, hotels, best rent-a-car options, reliable bus companies or whatever you may need.

If you are in Buenos Aires, you may come for the day by a 3 hour ferry or in a 45 min. flight.

It's my goal to introduce you to my charming city and help you get the most out of your visit to this beautiful country!


These are my 3 suggestions to guarantee you a memorable and exciting visit to Montevideo or Punta del Este:

1. Montevideo is a safe city, although I would recommend you to take care of your personal belongings. Take care if you bring an expensive camara.

2. Major credit cards are accepted, Money exchange shops and ATM are everywhere. Dollars are accepted.

3. Water and food quality have the same standards as USA or Europe.
In restaurants, customers are charged around 3 dollars as "Table Fee".
Restaurants beverages (soft drinks, wine, beer and coffee) are quite expensive. Tipping is optional, usually 10%.

A Recent Review of this guide

Our first time visit to Montevideo was a real success thanks to Gabriel. He is well experienced and very knowledgeable. His former activities as architect allow him to bring in additional interesting information on the city and its history. While being flexible according to our wishes, he managed to show us a maximum in the given time.
