I liked the style in which our tour guide provided the information. She was very courteous, professional, friendly, down to Earth, and passionate about providing the tour with a most memorable experience. She also was thoroughly knowledgeable about the information concerning the tour. She's a consummate professional... THUMBS UP

What a great tour. Jaime met us at the port on time and greeted us in fluent English. This was an added bonus as our Spanish is pretty bad!
We started in and around the centre. Jaime seemed to know everybody and parking was never an issue. He was just waived in to convenient spots wherever we went.
He knowledge was broad and he had many interesting things to show and tell us thoughout the day.
Later we drove to the beach and followed this out into the suburbs. We even stopped in a bar for a drink and sandwich.
We finished up in 2 covered markets where again Jaime knew everybody!
Jaime is obviously in love with his home city. It is obvious from his enthusiasm that he always wants to give a great tour. Highly recommended.

Best afternoon possible with Jaime Gutierrez Castro!

We had the most amazing afternoon in Montevideo ... thanks to Jaime Gutierrez Castro. We met him as we got off our ship and he took us to all the places on our Wish List and so many more. We would have been so disappointed to have missed some of the wonderful, interesting spots he chose (if we heard about them after) - but he ensured we saw things that would interest us and provided so much information. He knows everyone and it felt like we were visiting the home town of a friend. Of course, a huge plus was that he spoke excellent English (and there were no other guides we came across who spoke English). Could not have been better - thanks Jaime.
Overview Driving Tour

A group organized this tour in English on our one day stop on a cruise. It was mostly a drive around the city with some commentary--somewhat informative. We made a few stops --at Independence Plaza (for about 15 minutes),at the Cathedral (about 10 minutes), a very nice market (about 20 minutes) in a park, at the Parliament. We did NOT "Get out to stroll a section of this beachside promenade where you can browse local shops and enjoy lovely coastal views from Punta Gorda" as it says in the description. The guide was pleasant and the driver good in the city.
Nice drive thru the city but not very informative

While I overall enjoyed the tour, it is definitely bi-lingual and hard to follow. The bus was comfortable and picked us up on time. The guide was very nice but kept jumping between Spanish and English and sentences seemed to start mid-thought and hard to follow. I am not sure I got a lot of facts out of this tours but it was nice overview of the neighborhoods.
