A Recent Review of this tour

For people in a good general tour of Montevideo and especially as taste of the jewish sites, this was a terrific tour with a friendly, thorough, and knowledgeable Guide. We learned about the visitors of Uruguay and also its jewish community, as well as seeing the synagogues, school, and community center. We visited the holocaust memorial site as well. All in all excellent and highly recommended
