Our day with Laura was like spending a day with a friend. She obviously loves Uruguay, and the capital city of Montevideo. She was able to share the historical and cultural information we wanted to know and happily answered all of our questions. Such a great attitude and a superior command of the English language. I understood every word, and she understood us, too. Bonus: she arranged for me to try (and learn about) Mate, all while minding the time so we could be back for a cruise ship departure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are an inspiring couple and I am very grateful for the day we spent together. I hope you are having a great time on the Cruise and that you find the perfect place to live and explore. Wish you all the best!
It was wonderful having Laura as our guide. All communications with her prior to our Tour were timely and helpful. Her English communication skills are excellent. She was on time, friendly and well prepared. She was able to answer all of our questions and share many historical details about the City and it's history. Our lunch at the market was amazing! Laura even shared some yummy cookies with us afterwards. Thank you to Laura for a job well done! Your attention to our needs was very much appreciated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for a wonderful day in Montevideo Brenda! You and the group are great, I can see you all traveling together in the future. Kind regards to everyone!

We found Laura to be one of the best tourists guides we have ever had, anywhere in the world. She was not only knowledgeable about the city and it's history, but was also excellent company in the time that we were with her. We wish her well.

Our group of 6 travelers had a great tour with Laura B. She had sent us a photo of the designated spot; luckily, we found the spot in spite of pouring rain. She led us to her dry bus with a congenial driver name Pablo. She asked us what we wanted to see and off we went to markets, parks, museums accompanied by lots of stories. Laura was very attentive. She was bright and engaged; We had great conversations about life, Uruguay history and politics. She made sure we were fed, found toilets. Great trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had such a fun time with you all! And I am glad Larry could finish the meeting and join us for the rest of the tour. It's great to know that you enjoyed your day in Montevideo. See you next time!
Our tour guide was Laura. This was a favourite of all the tours we have ever done. We visited many locations in the city and we stopped for photos of many places on the days agenda.We saw neighbourhoods that most tourists do not see. It was a very wonderful day. I always keep notes of our travels & Laura supplied many interesting facts that I would never have known otherwise. Thank you again to tours by locals Regards
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muriel and Sheldon, thank you for a beautiful day around Montevideo. I enjoyed our special tour and I loved looking for the best photographs of the city. I wish you the best travels and lots of golfing for Sheldon!

Lou KaucicUnited States
Laura was a wonderful guide: knowledgeable, great energy, and very accommodating (we lost our luggage & she veered off schedule to help us shop for some basics, then extended the tour so we wouldn't miss any highlights).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lou and Billy, I had a great time showing you my home city and its highlights. And I had a lot of fun shopping with you! Thanks for a great day! Hope you come to Montevideo again!
Mary StokesChester, MD, United States
Laura was an amazing guide. She was on time when the tour started and she was so knowledgeable about her city and country. I had emailed her prior to the tour and gave her a list of things we wanted to see and do as a friend of mine was from Montevideo and she planned our entire day around all those things. I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone who wants an amazing day while in Montevideo....
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mary, I had an amazing time with you too! I really enjoyed taking you to all the places your friend had recommended and I am glad you got to live (and taste!) Montevideo. I hope you keep cruising around the world!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Rich and Linda, I had a beautiful day with you and I am glad you did too. You are an inspiration and I promise I will follow your example as travelers. I look forward to hearing from you and all the gardens you've seen. Thanks for everything!
Laura was organized and thorough right from the beginning when she emailed explicit instructions on where to meet her outside the terminal. She was knowledgeable about history, architecture, politics and culture as she guided us around the beautiful city of Montevideo. She generously purchased sweet treats and cheese at the market for us to taste and directed us to an asado for lunch. Friendly, attentive and professional. Thanks Laura.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Les, Chris, Jack and Cindy. I had a great time with you all and I am glad you enjoyed this beautiful city and its alfajores, cheese and asado! Thanks for everything!
