Michelle V.

Montevideo, Uruguay

Hello and welcome!! I'm Michelle, born and raised here in my home town, Montevideo.

It's my pleasure sharing my wonderful city with visitors, one of the things I enjoy most. I began my English studies at the age of 5 as a second language, having family living in the United States and England. I have lived for three years in Brazil so I also speak Portuguese fluently.

I'm passionate about my city, its endless variety of natural landscapes and historic wonders, its spectacular white sand beaches and seaside promenade and many beautiful green areas. I will enjoy showing you around my city.

I graduated from College as a National and International Tourist Guide. I have also lived for five months at Boston University, USA. practicing my English and travelling around exploring different amazing cities and learning about their history and culture.

I worked as a bilingual English-Spanish Secretary at two Import/Export companies in Montevideo.

I love knowing about different cultures and I enjoy meeting people from all over the world.

I speak Spanish, English, Portuguese and understand some German, not as perfect as I would wish.

It's my pleasure to offer you customized tours built around your interests. If there's anything I can help you with, hotel bookings, Airport and Buquebus Ferry transfers, car rentals or whatever you may need, please count on me.

My aim is to offer a very personal and flexible tour and I hope fun too. Help you enjoy a memorable stay.

It's my goal to pass my knowledge and passion to visitors, ensuring they have the opportunity to experience the best our country has to offer.

A Recent Review of this guide

We thoroughly enjoyed or visit to Montevideo with Michelle. Our party of four had plenty of space in a comfortable van. We first visited the "city center", before visiting one of the most prominent wineries in Uruguay. We had a brief tour and explanation of the wine process before the wine tasting. All of the wines tasted were very good. A "snack" was served with each wine. The approximately $35 dollar charge for the tasting and wine tour was fair - however purchasing additional wine was a bit pricey.
