Tour description

Welcome to Montevideo !

You are finally here! If you would like to discover the city like a local, join me on my free tour!

It will be about knowing the history of the west of Montevideo . Heritage buildings from the 19th and 20th centuries are observed and some stories of illustrious families that lived in the area are told. If you come to Montevideo for more than one day, you cannot miss visiting the Prado , since this area is an important part of the city's historical evolution.

We will pass through the key monuments of the city, such as:

  • The farms of Storace, Berro, Lussich, Butler and Eastman
  • Some monuments such as the Stagecoach, Maria Stagnero de Munar and Maria Eugenia Vaz Ferreira
  • The Rural Association of Uruguay (exhibition site)
  • the rose garden
  • The Hotel del Prado and the Cordier fountain
  • The church of the Carmelites

During the tour, I will be happy to guide you through this incredible city and show you everything Montevideo has to offer!

I wait for you to accompany you and make you take a memorable memory of my city!

El tour de jose es maravilloso! Tiene mucho conocimiento de historia, y eso hace el tour realmente interesante. Además la zona del tour, aunque está fuera de los sitios “turisticos” comunes, está repleto de arquitectura interesante de finales del siglo XIX, periodo del que se profundiza muy poco en el resto de la ciudad.

Excellent tour. Jose is very professional. He is passionate about the history of the area and showed us buildings, statues and told us interesting stories associated with them. He answered our many questions easily. It was a pleasure to meet him.
