Montevideo, Uruguay

Hola! I'm Shalako and if you're looking to book a private tour in Uruguay from a young, knowledgeable and native born guide you're in the right place!

I'm advanced in social studies, with a solid academic and updated cultural backround. I'm also a licenced airplane pilot, and licenced cook. My english is native since I attended a bilingual school at a British Institute and possess the international Proficiency in English exam from Cambridge University. This enabled me to work for Internacional Consultancy Companies and Airlines companies attending passengers before becoming a tour guide on season enjoying the sun with visitors from around the world.

Overall I'm proudly born and raised in Uruguay; I feel the city of Montevideo as a part of me. I know and love this place and would love for you to join me on a flexible easy going tour, discovering the stories each corner of Montevideo has to tell us, making the most of your time here to get more than a glimpse of this beautiful country and its people!

Looking forward to meeting You!

A Recent Review of this guide

Great tour! Shakalo is passionate about his country and is very knowledgeable in history and politics. We loved the tour and how it was paced. He worked with my love of shopping (the leather shop is amazing!) And even fit in a great sandwich stop at the last minute.

I cannot pick you inside the port but I can meet you in a pre-arranged location just outside the Port and walk to the vehicle.
