What We Do


We are specialized in  private culture-oriented tours in and arround Montevideo , the capital of Uruguay. But we also offer customized private tours such as visits to Tango milongas, wineries, nature tours or day tours to the Atlantic Coast. Just contact us and let us know your interests!


 This season 2017/2018 we are organizing a weekly group-walking-tour (maximum 10 participants) including a guided tour of the Palacio Salvo and the Carnival Museum.

Every once in a while we also organize other themed group tours and group events.
