For our one-day stop in Montevideo, we arranged to have a private tour, and based on the other reviews, we selected Cultura Cercana. I had many prep emails with the amazing Fabian to get settled on what we would like to see and do in just one day. Then, just as we thought everything was set, our cruise changed itinerary... More

We took the half day tour of Montevideo with Shalako. It was outstanding; he is knowledgable, engaging and great to spend time with. We came away with a lot of insight into the ways in which the city and the country have evolved, culturally, politically and economically.

Emiliano met us at the designate location on time, and we were off for a full day adventure. There were 5 of us on the tour and the van... More

My husband and I are very interested in architecture, local politics and culture and he tailored the tour to fit our interests. Emiliano was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and had an excellent command of English. In the short time we... More

We had around 8 hours off the cruise boat for our shore excursion. Silvia at Cultura Cercana helped put together a day tour of Montevideo and 2 other day tours (Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia) Every single tour we were one of the first groups met by our guide and driver, which is always a slight worry when getting off a...

I strongly recommend Cultura Cercana,in particular Bruno, if you are game to take a personalized, private tour with a highly knowledgeable, warm, delightfully funny guide. I was staying in Colonia and caught a bus to Montevideo for a day trip, where Bruno met me at the Tres Cruces terminal. For a whirlwind tour of MV, the pace was almost leisurely.... More

Bruno took my wife and I on a full day tour of Montevideo in December. We had a great time. Bruno spoke English well and was very pleasant. We learned a lot about Uruguay and Montevideo. Everything went according to plan and we would highly recommend Cultura Cercana ( which we used in Buenos Aires too ).
