Hi to everyone. My name is Juan. I like to talk to people about my city: how Montevideo has grown, what policies have been taken, a bit of History and Geography, and of course about football. I planned a trip around the city with the objective to see how common people live.

Tour description

Hi everyone and welcome to Montevideo!
The idea is to travel around the city, to know how we live Uruguayan people. In order to do so, we will walk around the main features of 'Ciudad Vieja'. From there, we start our walk, and we discuss Montevideo's history and geography. Walking to 'Plaza Independencia' we stop to see Mausoleo de Artigas and 'Casa de Gobierno'.

From there we take a bus* to Centenario Stadium*. We will talk about urban geography, public policies, and Uruguayan sociopolitical structure, looking into deep aspects of the city and citizenship.


Walking in the city implies the concept on which guides must be holistic in the approach. To recognize and discover highlights of places requires history in the making, having tours designed for specific tours and persons. 

*The tour does not include bus tickets. The walk around the Centenario Stadium does not include entrance to the Stadium.

We close the walk in Plaza Independencia. The objective of this tour is to be Uruguayan for 2 hours.

We enjoyed our visit to Montevideo, the first stop on our Cruise, which started in Buenos Aires. He was able to impart his local knowledge of the history of Uruguay. He was at his most relaxed when we visited the football stadium and museum. We had done a little research, so weren't completely ignorant of what there was to do in the city before our visit and I would suggest to anyone considering this tour to do the same

The “guru” came so unprepared and late. When you are on the cruise every minute matters. Juan did not have any plan. He asked us several times what we would like to see/visit. It came to the point that we had to tell him (dismissed him) in the middle of the “tour”. He absolutely did not provide us with relevant information. I always avoid to give negative grades, but decided to let people know about this one. Completely dissatisfied
