Linda IndovinaUnited States
Gabriel gave us a very comprehensive tour of Montevideo with Jewish highlights. We walked the center of the city with architectural information from this retired architect which appealed to my architect husband. He showed us the Holocaust Memorial on the beach and the many delightful neighborhoods in the city. We ate lunch at a local restaurant which made us feel more immersed in the culture of Montevideo.

Kieran ByrnesUnited States
This was a great tour with a fabulous guide. I would recommend Gabriel to everyone! We saw so much but at a pace that was not at all rushed. I expressed an interest in a couple of things and Gabriel made it happen. I was fortunate to spend the day with somebody so knowledgeable and so kind. In addition, communication with ToursByLocals was excellent throughout. Everything went so smoothly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Kerry for such a great review. It was my pleasure meeting you and spending time together. I hope to see you again sometime in the future, do come back! All the best for you and your family too. Warm regards, Gabriel

Kerri HartfieldUnited States
We spent a wonderful day in Montevideo, thanks to our knowledgeable and friendly guide. I would definitely use him again should I revisit this city. He also pre-arranged lunch in a local restaurant, taking into consideration we had more than one diabetic in our group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice feedback. It was so nice meeting you and spending time together. I wish you the best and a great year ahead. Cheers! Gabriel
Jerry P.United States
As others have noted, Gabriel is an excellent tour guide. He structured the tour to meet our specific requests, including a terrific lunch, and things couldn't have gone better. Even more meaningful than the physical tour was learning Gabriel's thoughtful insights. He not only has a profound grasp of the history of Uruguay and South America, but I suspect he knows more about current events and US history than most Americans! If you're considering a tour in Montevideo, this is your guy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jerry, I thank you so very much for your great review! It was so nice meeting you and Nancy, and spending time with. Wish you a great year ahead and hope to see you back, all the best, Gabriel
Jan KrentzUnited States
Gabriel was an experienced guide who gave great directions on how to find him from the cruise pier. We were a bit surprised to have both a guide (Gabriel) and driver, which explained why the tour was more expensive than some of the other tours we took. We opted to go the a winery with a tasting, which was fun to try.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thank you Jan for your nice review, the tour was fun and meeting you a great pleasure. Hope you make it back. Have a great year ahead! All the best, Gabriel
Gabriel gave us a wonderful tour of Montevideo. He was very knowledgeable about his city, and justifiably proud. We enjoyed our day, and learned a lot. He adapted the itinerary to accomodate our needs. Thank you Gabriel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Judy, thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review. I truly enjoyed spending time with you, I wish you a great year ahead and hope to see you again. Cheers, Gabriel

Jeffrey LevyUnited States
Gabriel was an excellent guide. He was accommodating and able to change itineraries according to our needs. He helped us create a custom tour that included all of the places that we wanted to see. He was very creative because we were in Montevideo on Christmas Day and a lot of places were closed, but he lives there, knows the area well and was able to give us a wonderful tour. He found the only restaurant that was opened and got us in. His English is perfect and he tells the best stories. Thanks Gabriel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeffrey for your great review. It was such a pleasure meeting you and Lisa, so special and engaging. Hope you make it back, you have a friend in Montevideo! All the best, Gabriel

Richard GonzalesUnited States
Gabriel is an excellent guide who is very knowledgeable and professional. You can tell he loves Montevideo by the passion he shows when speaking of the history and sites. He gave us more than enough knowledge of the sites so that we could appreciate them while visiting on our shore excursion. We saw and learned more than we could have ever expected and we enjoyed how candid he was throughout our tour leaving us with a better understanding of Montevideo and its people. Thanks Gabriel for a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, thank you so very much for your great review. I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I do hope your next visit is round the corner. Have a great year ahead! All the best, Gabriel

This was a great tour (by car), giving us a sense of the history and geography of Montevideo as well as of its Jewish history. We visited a synagogue and school and saw Jewish neighborhoods in the old city and the newer areas. Gabriel was well-informed and helpful, and guided us well!

Our first time visit to Montevideo was a real success thanks to Gabriel. He is well experienced and very knowledgeable.

While being flexible according to our wishes, he managed to show us a maximum in the given time.

Leslie EstelleUnited States
Gabriel was waiting for us (two couples ) when we exited our cruise ship . We had a very informative walking tour of the historic area . Gabriel is a retired engineer and has lived in the city his whole life with his family . We were able to learn so much about the area and his country due to his knowledge. We also took a bus to the beach front area - which was gorgeous. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed being able to experience Montevideo with such a friendly and knowledgeable gentleman.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leslie so much for your great review! It was truly a pleasure meeting you, you made it all so easy and enjoyable. I’m happy ToursByLocals was such a wonderful experience. Hope to see you back, have a great year ahead, cheers! Gabriel
