We decided not to take the tour and took the shuttle into Montevideo and had a great time just checking out the highlights in the downtown area. The locals were friendly and coming back on the shuttle bus our guide was very informative about the history , politics and answered any and all of our questions.
What a fabulous port!! I had organized a private tour and this turned out to be a great choice. We had 2 days in Rio and it was nice to have the time, there is so much to see and do there. Our private tour was with Neyla and she was excellent, we got to see what we were interested in.
