Wat je gaat doen

We'll start our tour at the heart of the Old City, the Independence Square, inaugurated in 1836 in order to link the old part with the new one.
There we will be able to see some of Montevideo's most iconic buildings, such as Palacio Salvo, rising 100 meters high, which made it the tallest building in South America from 1928 until 1935. We will also see Palacio Estevez (1837) and Presidential Tower.
Right in the centre of the square, we have Artigas Shrine, a huge monument of our national hero emplaced in 1923, which is 17 meters high and weighs 30 tons. Then, we will descend to the mausoleum, guarded by soldiers of the Corps of Blandengues.
Then, we will see The Gateway of the Citadel, which is one of the only remnants of the times when Montevideo was a fortified city, until 1829.
After that, we're gonna have a short stroll to the Solis Theatre, which was first sketched in 1840 by Italian architect Carlo Zucchi and inaugurated in 1856 with the Opera "Ernani", written by Verdi.
Later on, we'll walk through Sarandí pedestrian street until Matriz Square, created in 1726. There we have a beautiful marble fountain. The square is surrounded by the Metropolitan Cathedral (1804) and the Cabildo (1803), an early City council.
After a short walk, we'll arrive at Zabala square (1890), inspired by French architecture and with outstanding constructions surrounding it.
End of the journey!

I am a passionate traveler, having been in over 30 countries so far. I have lived in Australia for four years, where I got my Business Administration degree at a Macquarie University.
I am passionate about Photography, languages, scuba diving, hiking and everything related to nature. Since 19, I started trying to make tourists feel home, showing my city and also nearby places. I can Speak English, Spanish and some Portuguese, Italian and Hebrew.
I’m sure we’ll all enjoy!

The tour with Javier was really great to get to know a bit about the city's history and emblematic buildings and plazas. Javier was so nice, giving us tips, answering all our questions and sharing his experience as a local. We also had some very interesting discussion about his amazing country. I couldn't recommend him more! Many thanks once again, Javier!!

Javier is a proud Uruguayan. Having studied abroad and traveled widely throughout the world, he has returned to his family business in Montevideo to re-discover his love for Uruguay. And like many world travelers, coming home let's us see our hometown in a new perspective with an appreciation for what makes it unique. It is this enthusiasm for Uruguay that Javier so richly conveys to his guests during his walking tour of Montevideo's Cuidad Viejo. The walking tour is well paced and easily adapted to your interests and schedule. Javier's extensive depth of knowledge on Montevideo's history and architecture enabled him to keep his conversation lively and interesting, not too intense, not too superficial, but just right. He was generous with his time and had great recommendations for restaurants and other activities in the city. After Javier's tour, I felt well oriented to the town for the rest of our stay and comfortable finding my own way back to places I wanted to explore further. Getting to know the culture of a country directly from someone who has chosen to make it his home is one of the reasons I travel. Get to know Javier and he will help you know Montevideo as he does, up close and personal.

Javier hat bereits vorab nach unseren Wünschen - wir reisen mit unserem 9 jährigen Sohn - gefragt. Während der Tour ist er auf unsere Fragen eingegangen und hat sie sehr kompetent beantwortet. Sein Wissen über Montevideo ist vielschichtig. Zudem war es auch lustig. Wir haben sehr viel erfahren. Es war eine anregende und kurzweilige Tour.

Javier embodies all of the qualities in a guide that anyone would be fortunate to tap into in order to learn about a new place. Javier introduced me to his Montevideo by customizing the tour for me. I went to the highest point in Montevideo, el Museo Militar, a place that I couldn’t get to on my own. I enjoyed a panoramic view of the city and could better understand the geographical and strategic importance of the city which also facilitated its birth. We also visited various important landmarks and squares in the Old City (la Ciudad Vieja). I cannot say enough about how flexible Javier was in meeting with me. After some things that went out of his control, he went out of his way to make sure I got an introduction to Montevideo the very next day. I am truly grateful. There is something extra special about this place (shh, don’t tell anyone).

The tour is walking and lasts between 1.45 and 2.45 hours, depending on your pace and needs. I won't be in a hurry :) I have to set a time here on Air Bnb, however, you can choose what time of the day you want to do it.
