Knowledgeable & friendly, very enjoyable tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michele, Thanks for your comment and such nice words. I´m glad you enjoyed the Punta shore experience. Be always welcome to Punta del Este!
We recently arranged for three consecutive day-tours of Punta del Este through Tours by Locals, and we enjoyed them so much we asked for an additional fourth tour on our final day, before returning to Canada. Mariana and her driver are a wonderful team, and their spoken English is very good. Mariana is gracious, professional, and very knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tour of Punta del Este.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your words Warren. Although the weather did not helped that much we did enjoyed the trip as well. Hope to see you again and be always welcome to Punta del Este!

Mariana was a delightful, energetic, knowledgeable guide with a passion for her beloved Punte Del Este. She went over and above to make this tour happen, even when our ship was unable to anchor in their harbor. She arranged a pick up in Montevideo to make this tour happen. A super day with a super person!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so grateful for your kind words! It was a deep pleasure to share the tour with you and let me be part of your visit to Punta del Este. I felt very confortable explaining the reality of my territory and also I felt you could understand the authentic Punta. Be always welcome to my town!

Mariana was a very outstanding tour guide during my visit in Punta del Este. She & her spouse (the driver) picked me up @ the hotel I stayed @ on time. The information Mariana brought up about Punta, i.e. its history (how Punta was formed, the wars that were fought, its former name, etc.), what makes it a jet-set destination among international visitors, local cuisines, investing in Punta, etc. I must say she is very resourceful & hospitable. Make sure when you visit Punta, let Mariana be your tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Manuel, it was really a pleasure to enjoy this tour with you and show you a part of Punta's reality. I am glad you liked the experience as well. Kind regards and best wishes Mariana
