El paseo es muy lindo y completo. Daniel (nuestro guía) se nota que es conocedor al detalle del edificio y sus orígenes. Un hermoso edificio que se ha venido abajo por malas políticas de protección a monumentos tan hermosos e identificatorios de una época de bonanza. La experiencia es hermosa y valiosa. MUY RECOMENDABLE

Excelente visita guiada. Muy recomendable. Se aprecian elementos de arte, historia y arquitectura, así como una panorámica de Montevideo. El Palacio Salvo forma parte del patrimonio más simbólico de nuestra ciudad y resulta enriquecedor conocer más sobre él. El Guía estuvo excelente.

Muy interesante , el guía muy informado y amable . Quizás las visitas en español e inglés deberían estar aunque sea 15 minutos separadas una de otra porque ambos guías trataban de explicar sin molestar al otro grupo , pero resultaba un poco molesto . Por lo demás todo muy bien .
