Mariana helped us through a day that was very stormy. We were ready to drop our plans for the day but she and Shalko made quick adjustments to their plans and then convinced us to go ahead with our tour and we were very grateful that we did. Despite occasional weather interruptions we got a wonderful tour of Punta del Este and a bonus drive along the coast, as our ship was unable to dock in Punta del Este.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for sharing your experience and giving your feedback. I value your positive attitude towards the situation and how you kept the good memories! I am glad you took the decision of going ahead with the Tour beyond the hard weather conditions. I enjoyed as well! Thanks and be always welcome to my town.

Date: Feb 16/18

Mariana's attention began before reaching Punta del Este until after we left. Not only did she show us her city and the history of it, but she also showed us what it is like to live there. At the end of the tour, she took us to a meat restaurant that was spectacular! And with that we closed our visit with a flourish. Thank you Mariana for all your attention and affection to make us feel from the first moment, as if we had received a friend from many years ago.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh Marie! You cant't imagine how happy I am for reading this words. You were such a perfect group! The tour flows so great with people like you all. Thanks again and feel always welcome to my town which is now your home too.

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!

Date: Dec 29/16

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

Tour: #153027, Punta del Este shore excursion = city tour + Wine experience for Sondra's Party!, Punta del Este, Uruguay    view tour
Date: Jan 28/16

Mariana was a real breath of fresh air for our group. We had a challenging itinerary that needed guidance so we could accomplish all of our desired venue visits, and Mariana struck just the right balance between moving us along and allowing us time to absorb the places we visited. She even provided us true local experiences by a visit to her own neighborhood and taking us through some local areas which tourists don't usually get to visit. It was an outstanding visit for everyone in our group.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sondra, thanks for your words, I specially value your opinion because you have travelled around the world. I enjoyed sharing the journey with you and your party and I am glad this experience satisfied your expectations. All were very kind with me. Really loved the artistic video you created with the pictures!
