A great way to see the old city, although we were sharing narrow streets with vehicles, but our guide led us adeptly through the traffic. That was followed by a long tour of the sea walk which was most enjoyable and very safe for cyclists. Our guide was excellent and provided a comprehensive history of Uruguay.
The guide was very good. On time and his english was excellent. He took us on a great tour of the city and stopped at key points to explain the history of the city.

Only item was some confusion about the meeting point, as it wasn't clear where the outside of the port area in Montevideo was. But guide was great, very knowledgable about a wide range of topics. Cycling was a bit challenging against the wind at time, but lots of chances to stop and look at things along the way.
