All went very well with this tour. Pick up at the hotel was good and we had a very good tour guide - Virginia. She was constantly giving information and was cheerful and helpful in every way. We also had a good and careful bus driver. Really enjoyed this trip
Very nice tour, beautiful city and it was all made best with our amazing tour guide, Joseline. Full of joy, she was able to make everyone laugh while adding history and entertainment to the day!
Advertised as an 8 hour tour the 11 persons in our group had a wonderful trip for almost 11 hours! Every hour and minute was extremely enjoyable. Our female tour guide and male driver were excellent. One of the best tours I have ever taken. Highly recommended. Victor, Bermuda.
The tour itself was good. The problem was the tour guide. The majority of passengers on the bus were from Brazil, some others Spanish speaking and only 5 of us who spoke English. The guide explained everything very thoroughly in Portuguese, not so thorough in Spanish and very little explanation in English. I also speak Spanish therefore I know very well that the explanations in English were very poor. A little more free time would have been very nice as restaurants are very slow to serve. My 4 star rating is for the places we visited not for the guide.
The tour guide Rosana was very professional but also funny. the tour started on time we went through all attactions as expected the only thing I would change is the free time in punta which I was not enough :. The bus had wifi.
A good introductory tour to Punta del Este! We enjoyed that other stops on the way to Punta del Este as well. Our guide, Marcello was very informative and made sure that we had an enjoyable time.
A fairly worthwhile trip that takes most of a day. Casapueblo is actually more interesting than Punta del Este itself during the winter, but you have to pay separately in order to tour it. There's a nice stop atop a hill in Piriapolis with great views and a couple of bars. I'd opt out of the lunch buffet in Punta - it's bland, mediocre and not cheap - you can find lunch options nearby just by wandering around. Two-and-a-half hours of free time in Punta was a bit excessive for a Sunday in August… there's not much to do. The tour narrative seems geared mainly towards middle-brow Brazilian and other South American tourists - lots of talk of property values, prices and shopping - it was a bit awkward to pass by a few pockets of obvious poverty with no comment from the guide. In terms of the ratio of ground covered to price and time invested, it's fine - a good way to blow a lazy Sunday.
It was a very interesting experience. The tour was perfectly led by the guide Roxanne. I had been to Montevideo maybe 30 times before, but always for work. So this was my first to Piriapolis and Punta del Este.
Would recommend it for people I know.
BEAUTIFULL TRIP. VERY INTERESTING PLACES. GOOD FOOD IN PUNTA.
Despite some issues at the start, the bus arrived late, we barely managed to sit together .. the tour was great, excelent guide and information, we had some nice time off at punta del este which we really enjoyed. Make sure to have some cash to be able to enter into the gallery art
