Shalako was a fantastic guide. The flight over Montevideo was the perfect start to a great ground tour. He is a knowledgeable young man, with great patience with 4 old people, who were tired and hot. The day got to 38C before it was over, but he kept his cool, and tried to help us keep ours. He showed us just the places we were interested in seeing, and gave us good advise when needed. Lunch was at a great seafood place he knew, and we all enjoyed it. I certainly recommend him very highly to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary, Ted, Gin & Clancy for this heartfelt comment. I won't be a tour guide forever, but I'll always keep this fun memories of meeting nice kind people like you from across the world. Best wishes and good health to you all!

Shalako was an outstanding and very knowledgeable tour guide during my visit in Montevideo (MVD). He picked me up in Punta del Este & showed up on time. On our way to MVD we had the opportunity to get to know each other & he mentioned what places we were going to fly over & the places we were going to visit. He was so nice that when I told him I am a coin collector, he took me to the place where I was able to purchase coins. He exceeded my expectations. I strongly recommend Shalako for this tour & others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Manuel for visiting my country and for booking this tour which I enjoy the most. Loved the present, all the best for you this new year.

Myself, my partner and our almost 5 year old son took this tour. I was very impressed by Shalako's professionalism and his enterprising spirit. The tour itself was a great way to experience Montevideo. Shalako's unique and very authentic way of bringing his passions together to provide an excellent experience I found great. Being from New Zealand I found all the parallels between our two countries fascinating. I would highly recommend for those who don't mind flying. Cheers Sandra, Rob and Laurence

Shalako made this tour the best I have had anywhere. Starting off with the air tour helped as we drove through and stopped all over the city. He is so knowledgeable about Uruguay but most importantly he is friendly and fun. Shalako took the time to get to know me and my interests. So ToursByLocals will get my business again after this first try. I highly recommend this tour for a wonderful look at the history and culture of Uruguay while having a good time with local Shalako!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dave glad to hear from you! We really covered a lot of terrain, both in miles and topics on our day together, a day to be remembered indeed! I was enriched by your open-mindness, your generosity and your good natured spirit. Consider Uruguay now as a destination in its own right, and me as friend. Shalako
