What an amazing day! Our guide was fabulous! She made sure to communicate with each of us individually to make sure we understood all aspects and offered her help (even gave us all a treat). Piripolis was nice but wait til you see Casapueblo! Prepay for the ticket so you don't wait in line. We could have used 15 more minutes more there. Punta del Este was lovely with time to walk the penisula and see the sites that we drove past in the bus. I didn't join the group for lunch and had my own on the beach by The Hand. I think because everyone was on time and we weren't completely full, we got on the road a bit early and made it to the stops ahead of the other busses, making the stops less crowded. How lucky! The bus was clean and the drive felt safe.

Nice little tour out of town for the day. well worth buying the add-on tickets for Casa Pueblo to skip the queue. Plenty of time in Punta Del Este to walk around and have a meal. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Our guide was great (we travelled on the 9th February) - didn't catch his name, but please thank him for a great tour, and for letting me try his tea - Caleb & Mark (London)

Guzman was an excelent guide! We had enough time to do sightseeing and we especially liked 3 hours of free time in Punta del Este. Overall, a must do tour when staying in Montevideo.

Nice drive along the coast of Rio Plata and stopping by a hill side Pariapolis and also at Casa Puebla before reaching Punta del Este.

Very nice except for the first visit to the museum of different collections
