My husband and I had a shore excursion stop in Montevideo and we had Michelle take us around for 6 hours. The old city, new financial district, beaches, old and new neighborhoods were shown to us. The new President of Uruguay was being sworn in several hours after we visited Independence Square. Despite all the security surrounding this important event we arrived early enough to see Independence Square and had a great discussion of the government. We highly recommend Michelle when you visit Uruguay.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Eileen for such a nice feedback. It was a real pleasure hosting you 3, it was a special day today, spending time together, learning from you and our new president taking office. Also, thank you for your lovely present. Enjoy your trip, all the best, Michelle

We enjoyed the tour of Montevideo very much with our guides Michele V and her husband Gabriel, also a guide. Their history knowledge was impressive and their english made it easy to understand. They also went out of their way to find us a nice local lunch spot with a beautiful beach setting which was perfect. If we had one negative it was that we thought the price was a bit expensive for the tour we got although we were pretty sure we got to all there was to see.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rick for your nice feedback. It was lovely meeting you all, fun and engaging. You are right, we saw everything there was to see and even more as we had time after lunch. All the best and enjoy your incredible 4 week trip. Cheers, Michelle

If I could give a rating higher than 5, I would for MIchelle and the tour she planned. Michelle was very delightful to be with, she made us feel like family for a day. All the stops were interesting and she was very informative.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen and Larry, thank you sooo much for your wonderful review. I loved hosting you, you made it all so easy. It was fun and Larry (the sherpa) so funny. You were so engaging and special to spend time with. Wish you a healthy, happy and wealthy New Year 2020 and all the best. Hope to see you back. Warm regards, Michelle

Michelle was wonderful! We spent an extremely pleasant day away from the crowds visiting both the old and new Montevideo and its lovely seaside residential areas while hearing about its fascinating history, including Michelle's personal family's escape to Montevideo aboard the last ship to leave Europe before the onset of the Holocaust in the early 1940's. Included was a visit to a small, picturesque winery offering a 2 hour wine-making tour plus wine-tasting with delicious tapas..A perfect day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorna and Jon, thank you so much for your nice feedback.it was such a joy meeting you and spending time together, both, so special and warm. I do truly wish to see you back and have the opportunity to spend much more time together. All the best and a great year ahead. Enjoy your coffee back home in the best Uruguayan cup!

We thoroughly enjoyed or visit to Montevideo with Michelle. Our party of four had plenty of space in a comfortable van. We first visited the "city center", before visiting one of the most prominent wineries in Uruguay. We had a brief tour and explanation of the wine process before the wine tasting. All of the wines tasted were very good. A "snack" was served with each wine. The approximately $35 dollar charge for the tasting and wine tour was fair - however purchasing additional wine was a bit pricey.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Richard, I appreciate your valuable feedback. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour, hope to see you back for more. All the best for you all, Michelle

A memorable tour from start to finish. In 4 hours we saw all the major points of interest in Montevideo and many extras as well. Michele is knowledgeable, personable and adaptable which made the tour extra special. We actually got 2 guides for the price of one and they were each able to contribute in their areas of expertise. Traveling would be even more rewarding if all guides lived up to Michele's standards.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Marc! Thank you so much for this great 5-star review! I’m truly happy you enjoyed it, you were amazing to spend time with! I promise we’ll visit the Parliament inside on your next visit :) wish you a great year ahead and the best for you and your lovely family. Warm regards, Michelle

Michelle is a super tour guide. Our ship changed its schedule and Michelle adapted our tour extremely well. She knows her city and is proud to show it off. She is very personable and we all enjoyed ourselves. She escorted us to the winery in a very comfortable van with a highly professional driver. I can't say enough good things about Michelle and this tour. I have recommended her to others travelling to Montevideo and will use her when we visit again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Fred, I can’t thank you enough for your great review. Wie schön war es, sie kennenzulernen! Thank you for your recommendation as well. You were so special and fun to be with! I’m already looking forward to your next visit! All the best for you all. Warmest regards, Michelle

Were planning on two cities but only saw one

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Richard for your feedback. Nice meeting you all. We met at the port and rode to Punta del Este, going along our Montevideo coastline where we saw the different neighborhoods and beaches. Upon returning to Montevideo, we visited the Independence Square with all its interesting buildings including the Citadel Gate. I offered to show you the historic quarter not in the itinarary but you wished to get back to the cruise. Sorry the tour didn’t meet your expectations. All the best, Michelle

Michelle was so knowledgeable, spoke clear English, and knew the political information that we would never have gotten from any other guide. Our tour was private to the four of us and we could ask questions and get answers from Michelle. Michelle was so concise, clear, informative and cheerful! Another thing, I had informed Michelle that my husband had COPD and Michelle as very caring of him and we really appreciated the loving care Michelle took with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alma, Bob, Sharyn and and Jer, I’m so greatful for your wonderful review! It encourages me to go farther and be better. Thank you sooo much! I’m truly glad you enjoyed your visit to Montevideo and I could be part of it. You were so fabulous, warm and special, made it all so easy. Loved hosting you and already look forward to seeing you again. A very strong hug, all the best! Michelle

Michelle was the perfect guide for us, so easy to correspond with and arrange what we had in mind in advance of the tour, perfectly described where to meet her, was there waiting for us and gave us such a wonderful visit to Montevideo. She is so knowledgeable and gave us so much information in such an interesting way. We saw far more of the area and gained so much more than if we had made the tour on our own. Michelle is a very cheerful person to be with too, we all totally enjoyed the time and views.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Chris for your wonderful review. It was such a pleasure and a joy meeting you all and sharing time together.
