This tour provides a good way to see Montevideo. The tour operator is a little flexible, and adjusts the tour to meet the interests of the guests. Much of the tour is along a long straightaway, which is good for biking, and you stop to view some amazing murals by the stadium, which really make the trip worth taking. The guide provided a lot of history about Montevideo at stops along the ride, which can be a positive or negative, depending on how much you are interested in learning the history of places you visit. They provide safety vests, but no biking helmets.

We had a great bike tour around Montevideo with Josefina. Unfortunately, our cruise ship arrived late but she was still there waiting for us. The tour ensured we visited the main highlights of Montevideo. Helmet, safety vests, water and bikes supplied.

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.
