My name is Shai and I will be glad to be your local tour guide.
I am a curious person, I like to learn and look for new ideas, places and cultures. I like to travel and share my experiences with others. I enjoy receiving visitors in my city and make them live "the local experience". I think it is fascinating to explore and discover your own place as a "tourist".
I have been involved in the so-called "cultural tourism" for almost 10 years. I have experience designing itineraries and guiding people and groups in Uruguay and abroad.
Academically, I hold a BA in Political Science and Humanities and a MA in Business Intelligence. I have also studied Labor Relations, Youth Policies and Tourism, in addition to many other formal and non-formal studies.
My tours seek to introduce participants to the local life of the destination in a dynamic and experiential way, trying to offer a unique and memorable experience.
Let's experience the city together!
