There were three of us and it was great. Insights into the old town, drive along the sea and across the city back again. Together with our guides' explanations about the country and its people, it was an interesting and instructive day. The enthusiasm of our guides about "their" city and "their" country was carried over to us. We have been Urugay fans ever since

It was an interesting excursion to get to know the soul of MTV, the guide Miguel is very popular with the locals and took us to several important and historical places. At the end of the tour he was kind enough to drop us off close to our hotel. I strongly recommend it and I continue to admire Uruguay

Surprisingly, I was the only guest Martin have for the day. It was great having someone take photos around the city & the audio helped keeping you informed as you walk along. It was a hot day but Martin made sure we walked along shaded area. I wish GetYourGuide will do more offerings like this.

Everything you have to see in Montevideo, plus information about history, culture and politics. Finally, you can work off a little more on the Ramla .. Tour, bikes and guide exelente.

The Guide Martin is exceptional. Great way to see the old city and sunset at The Ramble.
