Tour description

Punta del Este , some call it Miami or the Saint Tropez of South America , we like to preserve its origins and show how it developed in the glamorous city that it is today .
Being the most touristic city in Uruguay, we want to tell you the secrets that made it the diva of summer in the Río de la Plata and why it is an excellent option for the whole year.
We are on the monument of "the hand" and from there we start a journey of two and a half hours to show you the best of Punta and talk about the Uruguayan idiosyncrasy.
Some of the points visited are:

  • Hand
  • Brava beach
  • Mansa beach
  • Gorlero Street
  • Craftsmen Square
  • The lighthouse
  • Candelaria Church
  • English Square
  • Port

 I wait for you!

Germán is a really good guide. He provides a lot of information about Uruguay and Punta del Este. The visit is mixed with historical facts, things to do, places to go visit and go eat, etc. He is really friendly and answered all of our questions. I would recommend to anyone passing by Punta del Este to do that tour ! We learned a lot and it's all fun times :)

I am very appreciative of his effort as more than half the people who had signed up canceled at the last minute because of the heavy rain, all of which had him consider canceling at the last minute as well. Even though it rained during most of the 2.5 hour tour, the information was interesting. Given the reputation of Punta del Este as a beach resort, I was more than pleased to learn the historical background and current events that Germán presented about this peninsula and Uruguay overall. I recommend taking this tour.

Great communication before the tour, especially regarding the weather. German still arrived for the tour despite the rain and really tried to accommodate each person. We had a great time, even when getting wet! German is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend!
