Welcome to the city on a river. Explored by foot or bicycle. I am from New York but prefer this old town of tall doors, windows, shutters and long balconies. I like the business hustle and bustle during the weekend and the quiet weekends. Full profile

Alberto was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Montevideo and Uruguay. He also had a lot of great insight into what the city and country's current culture is like. If you're ever in Montevideo, I'd definitely recommend taking a tour with Alberto!

Alberto combines two perspectives. He grew up in New York therefore his perfect English and has lived in Montevideo for a long time and knows the old city well. He was willing to customize the tour according to my interests. He is very relaxed and knows alot about the architecture and points of interest in the area.

Alberto was great. We walked around the old city and he pointed out many details we would have had no way of knowing otherwise. The length of the tour was perfect and it was well paced. I would recommend Alberto's tour for anyone going to Montevideo

Alberto gave me a fabulous tour of the Ciudad Vieja and other areas around downtown Montevideo. He definitely knew his stuff and gave me a lot of context on how certain buildings, areas, and communities came to me. We also shopped at the local market and he brought mate tea for us to share in the park. I didn't notice that our tour had gone on an extra half hour, as well, and Alberto gave me tips on other places I could visit after (which I did). Overall I really enjoyed myself. Alberto translated for me, and also gave me options on what I wanted to see throughout the experience. He responded very quickly to my messages as well.

I would strongly recommend Alberto's tours. His passion for the city history & culture makes for a very rich yet accessible experience. Alberto was very patient during the planning stages and accommodated all of our requests. I'd definitely use his services again.
