programm referred free time to explore the city but we were driven to a shopping center and had no time to visit more places.
Information should refer: arrive with some time to the BuqueBus terminal because you need to check-in and cross Argentina's and Uruguay's borders

This tour suits best if you don't have a lot if time and want to take a quick trip over to Uruguay to see Montevideo. The bus tour was alright, we got dropped at a shopping center or at a lake/beach for 2 hours in the afternoon which was far too long.

Your pretty much on your own with this one. Theres no tour guide. I never received any help at all. I enjoyed seeing Montivideo, but it would have been better to just go to the Buquebus website and buy your own ticket. Its cheaper.

The tour operator never showed up
On our arrival into Montevideo.
And no one at buquebus seemed to know anything about The Viator city tour. We had no way of contacting anyone to help in Montevideo. So I would definitely not recommend this tour.

When we arrived to Montevideo via ferry there was no one in the ferry station with a sign. I had to go outside the terminal and someone helped me find the tour guide and bus. This is basically a shopping tour. We were dropped off twice at two shopping malls for an hour. No one went shopping. We all just wanted to see the highlights of the city. We got off the bus twice to view sights. Other than that we just drove by the sights. Then on the way back to the ferry station we made SEVERAL stops to pick up people going to the ferry. I guess viator also provides transfers to the ferry station. Get a private tour instead.

This tour was big disappointment. Not worth taking - better buy round trip ticket at ferry place for USD 100, and hoop on/off bus tour locally for USD 15. You get pretty much same thing with this trip. No tour guide, no tour in English. Beware that trip is really 17 hours long, from 5:30 am t 10:30 pm advertised as 10.5 hrs long. First bad experience ever with Viator.
