As we'd arrived by ship, we didn't have a hotel pick-up but we were met at the Carnaval Museum right on time. Tour was well commented and plenty of photo stops. The walking route within the old town is also worth doing.
We had a great tour guide and driver Virginia and Matias. Very informative and friendly. Not to be missed.
A good overview of the city and it's architecture. Guides was most helpful with comments.
Great introductory tour to Montevideo. Our guide, Marcello was very informative and made sure we had an enjoyable time.
Excellent tour guide,friendly and very informative. Itinerary was great....highly recommend
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.
The bus arrived 40 minutes late and we were not kept informed by the tour operator of what was happening. Each time we contacted him he said the bus would be another couple of minutes and then he said it had been held up by a fire in central Montevideo which had caused massive traffic jams. We checked with the tour guide when eventually the bus did arrive and this was not true. Nevertheless the tour guide was very good and the tour quite interesting.
A good tour. We were picked up a bit late and the guide was very good but had a lot of different nationalities so spent a lot of time repeating the same information but in several languages. The tour took in most of the city sights and good opportunities to take photos etc.
The tour guide Rosana was very professional but also funny. the tour started on time we went through all attactions as expected.
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!

Not a lot to see in Montevideo but still worth doing the guide was great x
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.
not so good, too many languages, no time to be really informed about the tour.
If you speak spanish or portugese. OK
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.
