A wonderful day trip! So much to learn from Uruguay, their efforts on education, growth, orderly modern and traditional construction, incentive to diminish population hypertension by lowering salt intake by restaurants, etc. etc. great overall! Lilian our tour guide was excellent, great descriptions throughout route, highlighting route landmarks and traditions! The visit to Casa de Pueblo to learn about recognized Uruguayan Artist Carlos Paez Vilaro was a highlight. The lunch location and visit around Punta del Este was fantastic! Overall a great visit! We live in The US and this was our first time to visit Uruguay. We are happy to recommend it to our friends, family and colleagues. It is a true gem within South America! Another GREAT Tour by VIATOR!

I am thoroughly impressed with the customer service and knowledge of LBTour. For 56, I was picked up from my hotel and taken east towards Punta Del Este. My group consisted of primarily Brazilian tourists, a couple from Peru, and myself. Our crew consisted of FredericoDriver and Frederica tour guide. As the only English speaker it was a little difficult to connect with others in the group due to the language barrier, but we definitely tried acting out the words we wanted to communicate. Frederica was amazing! She quickly switched from Portuguese to Spanish to English and her responses to questions were quick. she was very knowledgeable about Montevide, Piriopolis, San Antonio, and Punta Del Este. She recommend points of interest during our free time, and expressed that Punta Del Este had the best Dulce de leche in the whole of Uruguay.
