We had a wonderful 3 hour walking tour of the old city in Montevideo with Emiliano , a university history major. My husband and I are very interested in architecture, local politics and culture and he tailored the tour to fit our interests. Emiliano was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and had an excellent command of English. In the short time we had together, he imparted a true flavour of Uruguyan culture. He met us as promised just outside the port gates and we started from there. As we wanted to spend the rest of the day exploring the city by ourselves, he adapted the route so as to leave us in a main plaza as opposed to back at the port. We highly recommend Cultura Cercana.
