    I took this tour on the day I arrived in Montevideo and it provided a decent overview of the city. Stopped at Independence Plaza, the Legislative Palace, Mercado Agrícola, and the Montevideo sign. Guide was conducting the tour in Spanish, Portuguese, and English unfortunately for me, English got the shortest explanations. I was staying in the Old City so it was nice to get out and see parts I might not have seen otherwise.

    Tip: At Independence Plaza, take steps beneath Artigas monument to visit the mausoleum. Tour guide didn't mention this but we had time at the Plaza and it only takes a few minutes.

    This tour gives you a taste of the city of Montevideo its parks, architecture, history and culture. It was an enjoyable day with good photo opportunities.

    Tour was ok but to little and to long stops in places. We arrived two hours late back to hotel and this was due to long stays at some places.

    The tour overview certainly does not suggest the tour is predominantly in Spanish. Our tour was overwhelmingly in Spanish. The guide provided perhaps a quarter of the content in English. My wife could not follow at all.

    But, I did follow the Spanish content and it was disappointing and superficial. We were told a few major dates and place names. But, we spent many minutes driving through older neighborhoods which were run down, and heard nothing about what had changed to cause the deterioration. We learned nothing about the people, the economy, the culture.

    Perhaps the best example. We stopped for a five minute photo opportunity at a sculpture depicting an colonial settler on a horse-drawn wagon. We learned nothing about where they had come from, where they were going, and what the settlement process was all about. It could have been a statute of a US wild west wagon.

    The guide was pleasant and polite, and the tour did cover the City. We just didn't learn much about why Uruguay is different from Argentina or Brazil.

    A Hop On Hop Off bus would have been better.

    Good overall view of the city.

    Wasted way too much time going from Hotel to Hotel to pick up other passengers. Then wasted more time dropping everyone off.
