Our guide was never short of information and details. Fun trip and lots of history learned. We found this tour was great to start with as it set the rest of our tours up for a full picture of the region.

The guide we had on this tour was the best we had on any stop on our cruise. She was articulate and had a lot of information about the city and its people. The bus was large and comfortable and had a toilet that we could use during the tour. The downside of a large bus was that it couldn’t go into old town. If we wanted to go there, we would have had to take a twenty-minute walk back to the cruise ship. Because of that, we missed some shopping and restaurant opportunities, but the tour was excellent, with interesting insights into the history and culture of the city.

We picked up the tour bus from the cruise terminal and I was reasonably priced compared with the hop on hop off bus. We saw the main attractions with a well informed guide.
Overall a good trip for those with half a day to spare

I made reservation one month in advance taking South America cruise. We showed up in the hotel close to the cruise terminal 10 min before pick up time. We waited 30 min. Meantime I asked the front desk in Don Boutique Hotel to call tel number in the reservation. Nobody pick up the phone.
I got an email about 9.30 AM that the tour operator was in the hotel at 8.40 and 9.00 AM and we did not showed up.
We took another city tour and after 3 hours come back to the hotel. The lady at front desk told us that two women were at 9.15 AM and asked for us.
I sent immediately two emails making reference to info from the hotel. Nobody replied.
When I came back to the USA I called tel number in the reservation. After a short conversation in English my call was disconnected. I did not have a chance to talk again with anybody speaking English

I am very sorry to know that you had a bad experience with us, but I want to point out some things to be taken into consideration: 1- When we received the booking we informed to you that we offer a specific tour around the city for cruise passengers, it departs and returns to the Port of Montevideo and it is the way to avoid this kind of problems. Based on our experience, it is not the best option to choose a tour that goes through the hotels, when a passenger is not staying there. That is why our company developed a specific product for cruise passengers. 2- The tour went twice to Don Boutique hotel, the first at 8:35 am (you were not there) and the second 9:00 am (the person in the hotel's front desek said that you had left already) 3- After 9 am we contacted you by WhatsApp and e-mail and we received your answer after 2 hours. Anyway I want to apologize on behalf of Transhotel and I am very sorry that you consider this situation as a bad experience. In addition to the quality of the service that we want to give our passengers, we care that people leave Uruguay with a good impression of the country in general. If you come to Montevideo in the future, we will gladly offer you a free city tour in compensation Best regards, Sales department

This tour didn't really show all the worthwhile sites of the city and felt rushed. Also the fact that they were pushing certain items for sale, which took quite some time, didn't feel right. Should not be part of a city tour.

Thanks for your comments, passengers feedback help us to improve our service. Could you please inform us who and which items were offered for sale? Of course that should not be part of the tour.
