About the tour

In this tour you will discover the hidden gems of the historical center of Montevideo. Our guides Lara and Annelot will share stories about local history, daily life, food, architecture and surprising details that you won’t find in any guidebook. Join them for a walk from the famous 'Plaza Independencia'- where you can find 'Palacio Salvo' and the statue and mausoleum of national freedom fighter, José Artigas - to the constitution square. Prepare to be surprised by one of the most beautiful art-deco cities of the world, shown in a fun and interactive way.

Meet touruguay


Lara and Annelot are both from The Netherlands, but after living in Montevideo for almost 7 years they almost feel like 'Latinas'. They don't call themselves 'tourguides', but rather storytellers, entrepreneurs, Journalist & foodie, blogger & vlogger. While Lara is fact tracking stories and searching for hidden treasures, Annelot is trying out the best hotspots: from food festivals and a good cup of coffee to the most beautiful tango show and Uruguay's most delicious ice cream. The tours of this dynamic team are fun and colorful.

I had such fun on your tour though I joined late. I would love a tour focusing on the art nouveau architecture of Montevideo. I couldn't quite get the name of the cookie you ate.

Nice snapshot of the historic center of Montevideo and the country’s history... only problem was the audio on the iPad.. I had to go to the iPhone for that...
