Shalako is an exceptional guide. His historical knowledge was very important to give context to the many sites we visited. If we could, we would award 6 stars

Very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Shalako arranged the tour like we wanted it; laid back in combination with some history, soccer + F&B. We got a good overview of Montevideo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for going through all the effort to visit my country and hometown! I had a very nice day with you two as well
Shalako showed us a lot of Montevideo in the short time of 3 hours our cruise allowed. He even catered to our specific request. It was a great experience.

Shalako gave us an interesting and enlightening tour of Montevideo. He shared his obvious love for his city and country with us on a walking tour of the city center and on a car tour of the rest of the city, including various neighborhoods, parks, important buildings and monuments, the Playa and 2 markets. Shalako imparted his vast knowledge of Uruguay's history, culture, politics, and economy in an understandable, relevant manner enlivened with a sense of humor.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind descriptive comment, Best wishes!

Susan McDonoughUnited States
Shalako was exactly the type of tour guide we hoped for. He tailored the tour to our interests. Well educated, he informed us about the more recent history of Uruguay, as well as the more distant past and the independence movement of the early 1800's. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for letting me be your host and for taking an interest is such relevant, but usually overlooked issues.
