Tour: #11540, Montevideo City Private 4 hour Shore Excursion Tour specially created for Alma Renko on March 23rd, 2018, Montevideo, Uruguay

Michelle was so knowledgeable, spoke clear English, and knew the political information that we would never have gotten from any other guide. Our tour was private to the four of us and we could ask questions and get answers from Michelle. Michelle was so concise, clear, informative and cheerful! Another thing, I had informed Michelle that my husband had COPD and Michelle as very caring of him and we really appreciated the loving care Michelle took with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alma, Bob, Sharyn and and Jer, I’m so greatful for your wonderful review! It encourages me to go farther and be better. Thank you sooo much! I’m truly glad you enjoyed your visit to Montevideo and I could be part of it. You were so fabulous, warm and special, made it all so easy. Loved hosting you and already look forward to seeing you again. A very strong hug, all the best! Michelle

Michelle Vasen was excellent. She did everything within her power to ensure we enjoyed our tour. She's very accommodating, always willing to tailor the tour to suit our request. Also, her driver, "William" was great. We can go on with specifics, but we highly recommend Michelle. Thanks Tours By Locals for hiring Michelle, and a BIG THANKS to Michelle.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tnanks to you Harv for this WONDERFUL review!! When you were e-mailing me I thought you were a serious and demanding person.... Wow!

I wish you all the best for this New Year, health, happiness and prosperity. And certainly hope to see you back, cheers! Michelle

Tour: #11540, Montevideo City Private 4 hour Shore Excursion Tour for Brian Delaney on Nov. 13th, Montevideo, Uruguay    
Date: Nov 13/17

Michelle gave us an excellent overview of the city with lots of historical and cultural information. Her English is excellent and she is proud of her city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brian very much for your review. I enjoyed meeting you and sharing some time together. When I dropped you off at the Port and 10 minutes later the front desk called me to report you had left your backpack in the van, I was very concerned, but I returned to the Port, parked next to your cruise and almost flew inside to find you... but you got it and that was my goal. Wish you all the best and a great year ahead! Michelle

Michelle is an excellent guide and took great care of us - even taking me to a pharmacy to get treatment for my blisters ( not caused by this tour!). She ensured we saw all the sights of Montivideo - a beautiful city - in comfort and at a pace to suit us. We recommend Michelle as a great guide. We enjoyed an amazing lunch in the port market at a place suggested by Michelle.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bridget, thank you so much for your wonderful review. I'm happy you liked the tour and felt at ease. That's my goal. I hope your blisters healed quickly. Have a great year ahead, hope to see you back someday. Take care! Warmest regards, Michelle

Michelle was fantastic. She has wonderful knowledge, is friendly and caring, and took great care of my disabled wife. For a comprehensive tour of Motevideo, Michelle is the guide to use

Very cordial but we felt that our tour was lacking in enthusiasm.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Janet, it was great meeting you. This review took me by surprise, since this is the first time I have ever heard that one of my tours lacked enthusiasm. I remember that day being very hot so the heat could have affected me in a way that I didn’t notice. I am sorry about that!

I believe Michelle had some sort of accident prior to our tour taking place and was therefore slowed down a bit. However, her husband accompanied her and we found him to be extremely knowledgable. Overall we enjoyed the tour and would give it 4 1/2 stars.

Michelle was one of the most knowledgeable tour guides we had. Due to some eye issues she has, she travels with an assistant to help her. This was an added bonus for us--the more the merrier! We learned so much about Montevideo, Uruguay, and saw the main sights along the way. Michelle is an enjoyable person to be with and made our tour very special.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alice, I thank you for your kind words. I did enjoy meeting you and showing you around my beautiful Montevideo. I hope to see you back. My warmest regards to you all. Michelle

From the moment we first booked our tour, Michelle was helpful and efficient in accommodating our requests. We enjoyed every minute of her tour. We particularly appreciated her warmth and generosity (treating us to mandarin oranges at the market, advising us at the Old Port Market, etc). It was a treat to also meet her husband, Gabriel, whom we encountered en route. Michelle is knowledgeable, charming and efficient, and we highly recommend her. THANK YOU, Michelle!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eleanor, Thank you so much for your nice comment. It was my pleasure meeting you and touring you around showing you a little of the best of my city. I did enjoy your visit and I hope to see you soon again. I will be always around for whatever you may need. Warmest regards for you all and a big kiss for you. Michelle

We very much enjoyed our tour of Montevideo, not only because it is a beautiful city but also because of our guide, Michelle, who provided us with a well organized, informative tour. She was friendly, personable, professional and had an excellent command of the English language. Michelle had a wealth of knowledge to share and her enthusiasm made her commentary so much more interesting. We would certainly ask for her services again should we ever return to beautiful Montevideo. Stu & Baiba

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stu and Baiba, Thank you so much for your kind words. It was my pleasure meeting you and I enjoyed every moment spent together showing you a little bit of this great city. I truly thank you for the beautiful pictures you took of us three and sent me. I felt you were special and I made two friends. I look forward to meeting you again. Take care. Warmest regards, Michelle
