we spent wonderful and inspiring 6 hours with Mariana who gave us a lot of insides of life in Montevideo and Uruguay. The tour was totally in line with our intensions and expectations. Many thanks to charming Mariana!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for been so nice!!! Our tour was really enjoyable for me, it is great to read that it was also for you. Thanks a lot for the feedback!!! Regards, Mariana
Mariana was a very competent guide. She has a great knowledge & love of her city & country & walked us around the highlights taking time to ensure that we understood all aspects of the geography & history. She teamed with a driver (sorry can't remember name) who was also a guide & drove us around the edge of the city to view sights not normally seen by tourists. The 4 of us had a memorable BBQ lunch at a suburban market & we were able to see the great variety of fruit & vegetables grown locally
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lorna!!! What a great feedback! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. It was an amazing day, I enjoyed a lot. Hugs for you and Alan!!! :)

Mariana was an excellent guide and has a natural passion for Montevideo and effortlessly made sure that this was transferred to us during our day together. Without doubt this is a great way to pass a day and learn about the city, taking in the main attractions as well as the quirky places that make special memories. The lunch venue and company (with Shalako) was perfect and the recommended meat platter kept us full for days! Thanks again for a perfect guiding experience. Jon & Brenda
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jon!!! Thanks a lot for your feedback. You both are amazing, I had so much fun in this tour, is great to meet people with your energy :) hope one day we can meet again, maybe in 'El Encuentro', haha. Warm regards, Mariana

Wonderful city tour! Mariana was prompt, energetic and very knowledgeable of her city & country's history and culture. Her diverse tour immersed us in the city's every day life and took us to many beautiful and interesting sites. Her passion and enthusiasm were infectious and we fell in love with Montevideo! Our driver & mode of transportation were great. They made us feel very welcomed.
Thank you Mariana for a wonderful tour. Your excitement reached us all, and opened our eyes about Montevideo and Uruguay David Sudry Shoraesh, Israel

Once we figured out the meeting point--access to the cruise ship birth is restricted--we got off to a fast start and Mariana was able to alter the schedule to fit our plans. Rather than walking about a dusty downtown we detoured to the wine country for a lovely lunch followed by some other local flavors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for you feedback Ron! It was a pleasure for me to meet you.

Mariana was exceptional and provided us with a wonderful day. She is a great ambassador for Montevideo and Uruguay. When we asked about the Jewish population during our day, she made sure to add the city's impressive Holocaust Memorial to our day. Truly lovely and personable.
An excellent tour with a great guide, giving a comprehensive view of the city, its history and its culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Henryk for your feedback. I`m glad you enjoyed of this tour on my city as I did. If you ever want to come back, please, let me know. hugs for both!!

Mariana is just first-rate. She was excellent in pre-tour email contact and info, she studies to anticipate guests' questions, she is prompt, personable, funny, has great command of English and has a contagious enthusiasm for her city. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She met our party punctually, was flexible enough to accommodate last-minute addition of two friends of ours, adapted to changing circumstances while on tour. She's smart, hard working, fun to be around. We loved her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And I loved you! You are great! Thank you for choosing me as your guide, I really enjoyed this tour. I hope we can meet again! You already have my ToursByLocals contact information, so if you decide to come back here, let me know! Thanks for leaving this feedback, I appreciate it. Enjoy the rest of your trip :) It was really nice to meet you guys
