What a fantastic 4 hour tour with Shai. He and a driver picked us up at our ship's pier. There were 4 in our group and we had a fabulous time. Shai obviously knowledgeable and we saw the best there is to see in our amount of time. We learned so much and Shai was so accommodating and he goes "the extra mile" to be sure your time is well spent. He truly wants to show and teach you as much as possible. Could not have asked for more, he is a delight to be with! What a great day, thank you Shai

Shai is awesome! He met us at the port gate having given us wonderful instructions on where to meet. He was also holding a sign with our name which made it very easy. He called up the van and driver and off we set to discover Montevideo for 4 hours. It was a great balance between walking and driving, plenty of photo opportunities and Shai is enthusiastic and friendly as well as knowledgeable. We finished opposite the port entrance where we had an amazing lunch at the "Markets" Don't hesitate - book Shai!

Excellent tour in Montevideo with Shai Anend. He is very knowledgeable and gave us in-depth cultural and historical info about Montevideo and Uruguay. He was very organized and brought a binder with many photos. He played some tango music in the car ride; shared samples of dulce de leche candy, a sip amd explanation of the mate tea, as well as a sample of the grappa honey liquer.

Shia was a wonderful guide who shared so much local knowledge with us. His English is perfect. Particularly, we liked that he brought some matte for us to try, some local candy to taste along with some local alcohol to sample. We had been to Montevideo previously so we needed to go to new places which he arranged so very quickly for us. Just a wonderful guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lee, I really appreciate your comment! You are always welcome in Uruguay! Best wishes, Shai
We joined a private half day shore excursion with Shai on Jan 5th, 2019. Shai arranged a comfortable van with a driver for our group of 6. He was knowledgeable and provided us detailed history about Uruguay and the life of local. We were able to see the whole city from the top floor of a building. We did a short walk to some popular sites which has many different styles of architecture. At the end of the tour, he also brought us some local drink to try. We enjoyed the tour and learnt a lot from Shai.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Yvonne, thanks for your comment! It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. You are always welcome in Uruguay!

Our tour was appropriately tailored to all of our specific requests. Shai did an exceptional job in teaching us about the rich culture and history behind every historical location we visited. He explained the background information about given sites on our way to the location with numerous pictures. He even brought specific goodies (i.e. grappa and dulce de leche candies) that represent the foods that Uruguay is known for. His patience, knowledge of history, and genuineness is unmatched. Thank you!
