Hebert is congenial and great conversation. A lifelong Uruguayan with a family, he has deep knowledge of Uruguay's history and important sites at Montevideo and Colonia (where we visited). Many people know him, so he is a well-established guide. Good driver, too. We were surprised he didn't accompany us into Montevideo's main cathedral and surprised that he didn't know it was closing right when we arrived. He was very good about giving us time to walk about on our own, which we like. Yes, we recommend him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words. Regarding to the Cathedral, most of the times I prefer not to accompany tourists inside the Cathedral because I think it is an intimate moment for each one with their feelings and beliefs.

Hebert is congenial and great conversation. A lifelong Uruguayan with family, he has deep knowledge of the history and sites we visited in Montevideo and Colonia. Many people recognized him, so he is well-known as a guide. Good driver. We were surprised he didn't guide us around the ruins and in Colonia's main church, letting us guide ourselves while he waited and checked his messages. We like that he gave us time to walk around on our own. We recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your words. I always prefer not to be burdensome and I like to explain about the history, but not to deprive of having their moments of privacy enjoying the highlights.

Hebert was amazing. What a happy friendly guy. We got a top notch tour. We could not have been happier. You can not go wrong with the people Tours by Locals offers. They are the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your words. You have been very kind and will always be welcome in our country as are all our visitors.

Tours do not get any better! Herbert took us on a complete tour of all the major points of interest in Montevideo. He was very informative and obviously loves his city and country. After the tour we had a BBQ lunch at his home and his family all joined in. It was a very special and memorable experience and a highlight of our trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Francine, thank you for allowing me to feel so comfortable showing you our city and telling you about our customs. It has been a real pleasure to receive your partuy in our house.

Fantastic, Hebert was exceptional and gave us far more than just a normal tour,we shared his culture, his vast historical experience and most of all the privilege of coming as a tourist but leaving as a friend. He listened to our prior requests and patterned our tour to maximize our time. We had as much or as little time to things of our interests As we explored beautiful Montevideo. We saw so much more than expected and was the highlight of our first but not last time in Montevideo
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gordon, It has been a great pleasure for us to have met you and to verify that there are people as simple and charming as you and your wife are. Thank you very much for your words and we hope to see you again. Sincerely, Hebert S.
