Overall rating

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.
