Gabriel is an excellent guide who is very knowledgeable and professional. You can tell he loves Montevideo by the passion he shows when speaking of the history and sites. He gave us more than enough knowledge of the sites so that we could appreciate them while visiting on our shore excursion. We saw and learned more than we could have ever expected and we enjoyed how candid he was throughout our tour leaving us with a better understanding of Montevideo and its people. Thanks Gabriel for a great day!
