The tour was good, but I think that it would expend more time!
Great tour at an unbeatable price! Would do it again in a heartbeat.
Great orientation of Montevideo. A perfect introduction to first-time visitors. Do this at the beginning of your stay so you know where to go on your remaining days in Uruguay.
A good introduction to the city to get one's bearings - there are lots of sites crammed into the limited time. You don't actually enter most of the places visited, but can get out at several of the monuments and the legislative building. There's a rather boring and unnecessary stop at an agricultural market that is more like a sterile little shopping arcade, but other than that the places visited are of general interest/cultural significance. I would have like to be able to enter the Estadio Centenario. The 2:30 tour time is nice for us late-sleepers. The tour company does a decent job with this one.
Montevidéu is a marvellous place but the tour didn't stopped in Mercado del Puerto. A obrigatory visit.
Yes, The tour was great. However, the rain was a problem. Tour guide was excellent. Thanks.
Our guide was careful to provide the same information to English speakers as she did to Spanish speakers, even though there were only three English speakers on the bus. (Well I speak enough Spanish to know she was!)
A great way of knowing montevideo.. ideally to take it in the morning!
This tour was well conducted and they came on time 3 pm. We would have preferred an earlier tour as we had to rush back to the cruise ship.
The tour was OK, but not stellar. Because our hotel was last on the pickup list, we waited for over half-an-hour; it would be better to stagger the schedule so people don't have to hang around so long (on the upside, we were first to be dropped off). As we've found with other Viatour-related tours, there's not a lot of contextual, historic information about why a building or monument is important. However, the guide was very pleasant and did her best at 'herding cats' when various people were late.
i have done a couple of these tours before, and this was the poorest of the three.
Needed to have more historical and architectural information and less "shopping opportunities"!
Probably easiest to save the money and hire a taxi for 3 hours to take you to the places.
They changed the tour time from 2:30 to 3:00, then the bus was almost 15 minutes late. When we reminded the tour guide that we would need to return to our ship by 6:00, we were told there was no way they could meet that deadline and suggested we try and get a taxi to take us back early which, of course, we felt would not be safe. Had the original pick-up time not been changed, and had the bus not been late, I'm sure we would have had a lovely time. As it was, it was a total waste of our time and we headed back to the ship.
Our tour guide sounded surprise that we needed an English tour. She spoke the majority of the time in Spanish and sprinkled some English sentences for us. We thought the tour was going to have more English speakers on it; we were the only ones. I thought the tour was going to be better also.
