  • Excellent tour guide whom my two children and my wife and I enjoyed thoroughly.

  • Great tour if you are looking for a lot of sites in a short period of time. Our guide was prompt and very personable who took time to share info that you would not experience on a group tour.
    Not only did we see the main points of interest, we visited several that sites that were unique. As examples, the bridge that has 2 10 foot humps that allow boat traffic and the most unusual curio shop - souvenir shop and a museum dedicated to cannabis and it's legalization in Uruguay

  • Overall this is highly recommendable. Great sights, great tour guide, comfortable vehicle. Just recommend to include Maldonado in the tour so travelers can also see the old town of Punta del Este.

  • Picked up from the quayside, Franco was waiting for us. There was just the four of us on this tour so very personal. Franco was only 17 but very keen to please, excellent English and he wanted to make sure we had seen the highlights. There are some beautiful houses there and lovely beaches but not a lot of sightseeing attractions. Franco answered all our questions but we felt that he could have given us more general information about Uruguay this was probably due to his age. The tour was expensive compared to others we had booked in Argentinaand Chile

  • The father and son team of driver and guide was really great. The son, at times hard to understand, but tried very hard to give us a good tour. We felt we saw everything in the area and were provided good local information along the way.

  • we had a lovely time with Jeronimo. He showed us everything. we higly recommanded him.

  • Very interesting. Pretty beaches,beach front restaurants,new condos. This appears to be the up and coming go to place.

  • Our guide did not speak fluent english as promised. She and the driver were sweet, but they kept chatting with each other instead of giving us information on the sites. The tour was not organized either. It felt as if we were just driving around through neighborhoods listening to friends chat in the front seat. When we did pass a point of interest we were well past it before we were able to interpret what our guide was trying to say. It got so annoying that 2 of our group returned to the ship before the tour was over. I would not recommend this shore excursion.

  • Great tour, what a lovely place. Private tours are wonderful. Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.

  • this was a perfectly pleasant tour of a place with very little to see. The guide was pleasant and professional
