I was on a one night layover so an half day city tour was ideal to get an impression of Montevideo. With Hans as guide and Nicokas as driver, I had thd perfect combination. Thank you both and I highly recommend.

Amazing trip around Montevideo - ended up booking Colonia and Punta del Este with the same guide. Learnt so much about the history of Uruguay, Marcela is the best!!!! un beso

Great guide, she really cared about her city, country. Again, do not rely upon the local host to tell you where to meet and when, call the local number the day before.

The Guide Martin is exceptional. Great way to see the old city and sunset at The Ramble.
