Hi I am Jorge! I am a journalist with 20 years of experience in radio and television, curious and attentive to the symbols of a key place from a geopolitical point of view from its foundation to this day. I love my city and I love to share what I know about it with each new visitor. Some song will accompany our tour and also information about Montevidean mysteries.

Buen tour. Eramos solamente 2 personas, por eso se sintio un poco mas privado. Visitamos lugares interesantes y aprendi mas del candombe y su historia.

Jorge generously ran the tour today even if I was the only one booked (as it's off-season), we spent a very pleasurable 1.5h walking off the beaten path in Barrio Sur and Palermo, chatting about music, musicians and the history of the area as well as the whole country, with the occasional excursion into personal history and local politics. While I cannot guarantee that you'll get such a personalised experience, I wholeheartedly recommend this tour if you are interested in the music and folklore of the countries you visit. The musical snippets in context are a nice touch I had never experienced in a walking tour before, well done!
