6-hour tour in a sedan car (AC) with driver

Get to know Montevideo's highlights and neighbourhoods with the help from a local friend. You'll get an insight into what it is really like to live here. We'll discover my country's history and traditions, get in contact with Uruguay's culture, including music, food and sports, and I'll tell you about our current issues -what is going on right now regarding politics, economy and society. Our 6-hour tour provides enough time to tour the town, stopping in all the places that are worth visiting. A sedan car (AC) with driver will be available throughout the tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour was fantastic! We only had one day in Montevideo and I'm glad we booked this excursion. Montevideo is a large city and there's no way we would have seen it all on our own. Carolina was wonderful as well. She said she is one of their newer guides, but it doesn't show. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and with a background in history I would highly recommend her to any history buffs! She even rearranged our day on the fly to avoid traffic and better utilize our time. We had a great time!
