Tours do not get any better. Informative, caring, and fun. Like being shown around by a close and dear relative. She obviously loves her city and country and shows it to you from that perspective. Also, excellent English.

For people in a good general tour of Montevideo and especially as taste of the jewish sites, this was a terrific tour with a friendly, thorough, and knowledgeable Guide. We learned about the visitors of Uruguay and also its jewish community, as well as seeing the synagogues, school, and community center. We visited the holocaust memorial site as well. All in all excellent and highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Elisabeth and Donald for your wonderful review. I loved doing your tour, you were so nice to spend time with. Hope you enjoyed lunch. I wish you a great year ahead, warm regards, Michelle
Jerry OldermanUnited States
Michelle is the perfect example of a model tour guide and superior in every way to all the five others we employed on our tour of Southern South America. Michelle went out of her way to make arrangements for our special and unorthodox requests and was able to manage this for our New Year's day tour. She is a profe Michelle was thorough in her guidance and in answering our questions. We vividly recall the many interesting things we accomplished and wholeheartedly recommend her to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jerry and Myrna, thank you so very deeply for your great great review. I loved hosting you on the first day of this new year, I did really enjoy it. You were so engaging and wonderful to spend time with. I wish you both the best and a great year ahead. Thank you again, hope you make it back to Uruguay! Warmest regards, Michelle
Kenneth W.United States
We thoroughly enjoyed our Jewish Cultural Tour of Montevideo with Michelle. Her knowledge and enthusiasm were contagious. In addition to showing us the synagogues of Montevideo and explaining the history of Jews in the city, she also showed us many other features of Montevideo's history and current culture. Even after the tour was over, she stayed with us on her own time to show us the Mercado near the port.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ken, thank you so much for your nice review. It was so nice meeting you all that time seemed too short. I hope you can make it with the "mate", if not, you need to come back for some lessons, haha. A very strong hug for you, Linda, Carolyn and David and a happy, healthy and wealthy New Year! Warm regards, Michelle

Sherry FagesUnited States
My husband and I without question give this tour a 5 star rating. The tour guide Michelle and her husband Gabriel (also a tour guide), who accompanied us for part of the tour, could not have been nicer or more knowledgeable about their city and country. They went out of their way to fit this tour in for us as they were booked for our date several months in advance. They took us all over and talked of history, styles of architecture, political history, and local highlights. They were great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sherry, thank you for this great review and thank you for having chosen me to be your tour guide. It was lovely meeting you and Sheldon, you were so wonderful to spend time with. Hope you make it back to Uruguay soon! Warmest regards, Michelle
Louis Brown Gertrude BrownUnited States
Michelle was very accommadating. Unfortunately, we never went into a Sephardic synagogue but only drove by one. Time was well allocated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Louis, thanks for your review. Nice meeting you. We visited the Ashkenazi Synagogue, the most important and representative with a guided visit for almost an hour. I specially contacted for you and Rabbi, Director Culture Dept. who kindly showed us around the Holocaust Survivor's Museum the synagogue itself, the Dissability Dept. and others which are part of the great job this Community offers. We did see all other important sites. My Jewish Tours are designed to enter just one synagogue. Best to you all!!
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Michelle was surprised by this review and informed me that she not only booked a visit to the Sephardic synagogue in advance but that she visited the Sephardic synagogue with the customers. I forwarded a note the Michelle sent me pointing out the fact that they visited that synagogue and they recognize that and apologized for the confusion.
Gary PerlinUnited States
We spent a spectacular day seeing Montevideo with Michelle during our recent cruise. The experience began prior to our arrival, when Michelle was very helpful in designing our itinerary. We arrived at the pier early but Michelle was there smiling and ready to go. It was a Sunday so not everything was open, but she gave us a deeply insightful sense of Jewish history and life in the city as well as the culture around it. Michelle made it seem like we were visiting family... and in some way, we were!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy and Gary, I greatly thank you for your wonderful review. You were so lovely to spend time with that this was clearly one of the most enjoyable tours I've done. Hope you make it back to Uruguay soon! Warmest regards for you and your family, Michelle Enviado desde mi iPhone

We very much enjoyed having Michelle as our guide in Montevideo. She gave us a complete tour of the city and pointed out very interesting sites and facts about the city. Even though she had injured herself and was in discomfort, she insisted upon showing us everything she had planned. We are very appreciative.

Also for having had the opportunity to meet you, show you around my beautiful city and most of all, for the pleasure of enjoying your company. Please give my warmest regards to Bob and Edry.

Michelle was the best! Very knowledgable of Jewish heritage sites and local information about city. She was personable and easy to talk with and made the day outstanding. Took us to a great restaurant to finish up the day. We had a mini van and a great driver so Michelle could talk to us as we drove. A must if you want a jewish heritage tour as she knows all first hand!
