A Recent Review of this tour

We had an excellent walking tour with Gabriel…saw the old city, many Jewish buildings, & the cathedral. We spent time visiting the beach and a residential area of Montevideo. I think it gave us a good feel for what it is like to live in such a lovely city. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, Gabriel was knowledgable and attentive. Thanks for making private tours available.
