What people are saying about Montevideo Department

This is a great trip to a charming old town. Our guide Marcela was amazing-handled all of us in 3 languages! Great places to eat, wander, some nice things for souvenirs - like tiles! I love them and was so excited that there was a tile museum there with French, Portuguese, Spanish and Uruguayan porcelain tiles. Unfortunately, it was closed the day I was there. Next trip!

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.

Wow! What a day! Once again Marcella and Jose knocked it out of the park with this fun and informative tour. I appreciate the multi lingual tour and that they took the time to make sure this English speaker felt included and welcomed.

a very charming city and Marcela (tour guide) very knowledgeable
