My passion for sharing stories and the history of my country will make this private tour unique for you. I will take you to places off the beaten track and you'll see everything from a local's perspective, and not from a commercial one.

I will pick you up from your accommodation, cruise or ferry terminal in a modern and comfortable SUV.

Also, the tour is fully customizable, you can tell me your interests and I will tailor it to meet your needs, adding more places or skipping ones you're not interested in. Starting earlier or later, whatever you may need, I'll make everything to make you feel home and never forget this beautiful city.

It's the most comprehensive private tour you will find, and been awarded the Badge of Excellence! Forget about having to wait for other guests, this one is made only for you!

(Starting and finishing times shown on the website are just an indication, I will contact you asking about times and interests after booking!)

Now horseback riding option!

What To Expect

Ciudad Vieja
Here you'll discover the Old City by foot, where it all started. We'll see unique 200+ years old buildings and visit the most beautiful squares of the city, such as Zabala, Constitution and Independence Square with its huge monument and majestic Solis theatre and Salvo Palace surrounding it, where we'll also pass under the old Gateway of the Citadel.

We'll also see the Metropolitan Cathedral, National Bank building and many other attractions that are located within the district such as the Cabildo (old city council) and find some remnants of the wall from when Montevideo was fortified.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Parque del Prado
Not too far from Cerro, we'll visit this beautiful and old green residential neighbourhood, where upper class families used to live during last century. As a proof of that, there are still some of the manor houses. Then we will see some interesting sculptures at Prado park, the greenest area of the city.
If you're interested in art, we can also pay a visit to Blanes museum, home to the most impressive paintings of the greatest Uruguayan artists.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Palacio Legislativo
Now it's time to see the Parliament House, a massive neoclassical building made of marble dating from almost 100 years old. You'll be impressed by its huge columns. This is where Uruguayan laws are made.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Mercado del Puerto
Now it's time for a tasty lunch. You'll have many options to choose from, such as a typical Uruguayan "asado" (bbq) at Mercado del Puerto, a 150 years old market. If you want to have another thing, you'll also have plenty of options, including pasta, empanadas, or if want, you can try our unofficial national dish, called Chivito.

Lunch is at your own cost. Stopping for lunch is optional, we can skip it if you prefer.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Not Included

Rambla de Montevideo
We'll take advantage of the longest coastal walk in the world, driving all along its length and stopping at a few points for short walks and panoramic views.

It was a great experience from the start. Javier dedicated plenty of time to us, never rushing us and always providing detailed information throughout the two full days we were with him.
In various occasions he went beyond expectation in helping us visit every place we wanted to visit, and offer plenty of alternatives to accommodate our liking and interests
Excellent Montevideo Tour
Daniel_R, 28-11-2022
The guide offered us a choice of walking through the local area or riding in the car. We opted to walk which is a much better way of seeing the old part of Montevideo. He then drove us out of the downtown core including to the top of the hill where we got a great view of the city and water. We stopped for a good lunch at a grill that was part of a larger mercado.
