Lares Tours is a bespoke DMC and tour operator in Uruguay that delivers authentic experiences, going above and beyond expectations. Read more about our philosophy, mission and vision.

Inspiring Through Travel

The Lares philosophy is not easy, but it is simple: to showcase the very best of Uruguay through authentic, socially responsible experiences and life-enriching trips. Lares Tours began as a boutique Uruguay DMC, committed to promoting lesser-visited regions, intimate guesthouses, ranches and lodges. So, while we now deliver incredible Uruguay vacations in every corner of the country and for all types of traveler, it’s still about going beyond the usual expectations and helping every visitor feel less like a tourist, and more like a valued, welcomed friend.

To do this, we dedicate huge resources when it comes to identifying and training only the most passionate local guides, teaching them the Lares philosophy while also learning from their own knowledge and insight, developing in a sustainable way, together. We personally stay at all of the hotels we suggest, meet the staff and embark on every excursion. Continually updating our products, discovering more and more of Uruguay’s highlights, secret treasures and hidden landscapes that exist throughout the country, is always a joy.

To get started, either choose from one of our themed routes for inspiration, or give us some parameters, a budget and interests to work with; we will do the rest and create an unforgettable, tailormade trip to Uruguay. Our Vision Become evidence of excellence, leadership and integrity, and based on the compromise of our employees, exceed the expectations of our customers through innovative products and high quality professional service.
