Great walking tour with Cynthia. She gave an educational history overview, talked a bit about current politics, pointed out architecture highlights, and told fun anecdotes about Uruguayan culture. Would recommend to anyone that is in Montevideo with 2 hours available in the afternoon!!

Geraldo, a wonderful guide, conducted the tour in English for a group of 20. He started with a tutorial of Uruguay/Montevideo history. After which we visited Independence, Constitutional, and Zabala Plazas. Tour was full of sites, cultural insight, and humor.
