    Really good day trip. Our guide (I am sorry have forgetten her name) was fantastic, spoke 3 languages, Portuguese, English and Spanish. She alternated between all three to accomendate all of us. Lots of stops and viewpoints and we had plenty of free time to explore the beaches and towns. Many thanks for the great day.

    This is a nice day trip, spaced nicely and with great views of several points between Montevideo and Punta del Este.

    I wanted more beach time. And beyond that, we were promised “entrance” to two beaches. We only went to one.

    Also, the tour guide had difficulty climbing stairs - I felt bad for her.

    Finally, the day doesn’t exactly get off to the right start when the guide asks you if it’s ok not to speak English. I said yes because I understand Spanish relatively well, but if I buy a ticket for a tour in English, I don’t expect to be asked to not take the tour in English.

    I had a day on the trip, it is well organised and you have sufficient time to explore the area. The only issue I had was that the place we were taken for lunch was expensive.

    Beautiful scenery and sights!

    Nice day outside Montevideo to various stops including Punta del Este. Had enough free time in each place to get a flavor for the area. Enjoyed sitting by the ocean and having a drink in one stop after a local lunch. Excellent tour guide, Ferderica, who spoke the 3 languages needed English, Spanish and Portuguese easily that needed on the bus. She had with a big smile all day as she answered all questions. Definitely recommend it and a good value.

    I really enjoyed this trip, Casapueblo was amazing, and the tour guide makes you feel welcomed.

    This was a perfect day trip! The guide spoke English, Spanish and Portuguese. We stopped at a scenic viewpoint, casapuebla, and then punta del este. After lunch there is a restaurant they pick out but you do not have to go there, you get some free time.

    The day trip itself was excellent. The tour guide spoke English, Spanish and Portuguese. We had just enough time at each location to get to know the sites. Great picture spots! Only issue I had was with confirming pick up with indoor Uruguay but Viator responded and resolved the matter promptly.

    Loved the artist's house, so quirky and atmospheric.
    The only down was passing Trump Tower.
