The walk is very beautiful and complete. Daniel (our guide) shows that he is knowledgeable in detail about the building and its origins. A beautiful building that has collapsed due to poor protection policies for such beautiful and identifying monuments of a time of prosperity. Experience is beautiful and valuable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Excellent guided tour. Highly recommended. Elements of art, history and architecture are appreciated, as well as a panoramic view of Montevideo. The Salvo Palace is part of the most symbolic heritage of our city and it is enriching to learn more about it. The guide was excellent.

After the English-speaking guide failed due to illness, I had to experience the tour in Spanish. The guide tried very hard to convey something to me as well and was skillful and successful in doing so. Great was the view from Faro over Montevideo.

What a fun tour. I was happy to have met Marco who was able to give the tour in English! I really feel like I got a good sense of the history of the building as well as understand Montevideo from a local. Thanks Marco!

The App is great, e-tickets went to Wallet no problem Tour was good, informative & I would recommend
