Fabian S.

Colonia del Sacramento, Colonia, Uruguay

My name is Fabián, I have been working as a tourist guide in Colonia del Sacramento since 2007.

I do think that this is a very nice job because I get to know people from all over the world, learn from them and share information and experiences. I am also a piano teacher and I love music. I like travelling because I think that it's very interesting to know about different cultures.
Colonia del Sacramento is a beautifull city that has many interesting places to visit. This city was founded in the last days of January, in 1680, by a portuguese man called Manuel Lobo. The portugueses founded "la Nova Colonia Do Sacramento" in order to take a strategic point in the northern coast of Río de la Plata. Seven months later, the spaniards settled in Buenos Aires, attacked the city and took possesion of it.
Portugueses and spaniards were fighting here during 97 years, because of that, going around this historical place it is possible to see different styles in the old fortress (spanish streets and others with a central drain, old houses with thick walls of stones and roof with tiles). Colonia del Sacramento was designated a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1995 and nowadays we receive more than two million tourists a year from all over the world.
This charming city has about 25000 habitants and there are only two traffic lights. It is a very safe city because everybody knows everybody and the unemployment is very low. It is a very clean and green city with many different kind of trees.
Visit, enjoy and feel Colonia del Sacramento!

A Recent Review of this guide

Fabian is most highly recommended. We traveled by ferry from Buenos Aires. 8 of us went in a well appointed van for a tour of the outskirts of Colonia. Fabian is very well versed in the political, historical, social, and cultural aspects of both Uruguay and Colonia. His English is excellent and his answers to our many questions was concise and clear. Our planned 4 PM return trip was cancelled at 8 PM due to fog. We telephoned Fabian. He got us 4 hotel rooms and drove us to the hotel. SUPER SERVICE!!!
