Gabriel gave us a very comprehensive tour of Montevideo with Jewish highlights. We walked the center of the city with architectural information from this retired architect which appealed to my architect husband. He showed us the Holocaust Memorial on the beach and the many delightful neighborhoods in the city. We ate lunch at a local restaurant which made us feel more immersed in the culture of Montevideo.
Gabriel was a fantastic guide and host, very knowledgeable and has great understanding of the history of Montevideo. Would recommend him highly. Jim and Christine Wideman
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jim for your great review. It was my pkeasure meeting you all, I had a wonderful time sharing this tour with you four! Best of regards! Gabriel
Max KaufmannCorseaux, VD, Switzerland
Our first time visit to Montevideo was a real success thanks to Gabriel. He is well experienced and very knowledgeable. His former activities as architect allow him to bring in additional interesting information on the city and its history. While being flexible according to our wishes, he managed to show us a maximum in the given time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Max, thank you for this great review! It was so nice meeting you and sharing some time together. You were very engaging! Hope you make it back some day. I wish you a great year ahead. All the best! Gabriel

Noah (Dr.) ChivianWest Orange, NJ, United States
Gabriel Cast,our tour guide, treated the four of us as if we were family.Visited the important buildings in the Central district. Plenty of time for photos and we enjoyed Gabriel's informed narrative and his choice of places to see, Plaza de la Armada, the Mercado de los Artesonas, a square block crafts show. A meaningful stop was the Holocaust Memorial , Memorial al Holocausto Del Pueblo Judio, the only one in SA. Lunch near from Gabriel's home was a chance to see Montevideo from a native's view.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a wonderful review, thank you so much Noah! It was my great pleasure meeting you and sharing my nice City with you. I wish you a great year ahead, all the best for you all, Gabriel

Sharon LeonardUnited States
Thanks to Gabriel for showing us Montevideo with such love and passion. Gabriel not only showed us the sights but skillfully explained how the locals live and enjoy the city. He is very proud of his city and is eager to share with visitors. The tour works well for cruise ship passengers as Gabriel is waiting for you right outside the port exit door. We requested to have lunch at a favorite local restaurant and Gabriel selected an outstanding family owned steakhouse that we enjoyed very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sharon, thank you so very much for your great review and heartful words. You were so engaging and wonderful to spend time with! Hope to see you back so we can try another good place for lunch. Wish you all the best for the New Year ahead. Warm regards, Gabriel

Our tour party rated Gabriel 5 out of 5 and as a result will be recommending your organization to other interested friends.

Kelly HamptonUnited States
We loved Montevideo. It is a beautiful and interesting city with lots to see and Gabriel made sure we saw it all. He added in the sights we requested, didn't mind grabbing a quick lunch from the supermarket and took us to a lovely area to eat by the water. We would highly recommend Gabriel and Tours by Locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kelly, Thank you for your review. I think that a flexible tour as ours ,it is the best way to enjoy the tour day. Eating Empanadas at the Virgilio's Plaza the most beautiful site in Montevideo was also great. Buying food at the supermarket you also experience how we live here in Montevideo. The best for you and your friends.I hope that you will come again in the future. Gabriel
Very Good guide with clear understanding of the city, history and culture.Helpful and patient. We enjoyed Montevideo.

Mary Ellen WeberUnited States
Gabrielle waited for us even though we were at fault for an one hour time difference between the ship and shore. We were so grateful. He toured his neighborhood with us and we enjoyed a typical steak sandwich at one of his favorite restaurants. He took us everywhere, toured the new Opera House addition, and even gave us a print out of the history of Uruguay. We highly recommend touring with Gabrielle.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mary Ellen for your kind and nice words and review. I always learn something with each tour, and because of that hour time difference I advised to all the next tours I had after yours of such a difference. I hope you'll try to prepare some chivitos at home. Warm regards, Gabriel
Allen ChangUnited States
We spent two days in Montevideo and Punta del Este with Gabriel. Though we started our tour not knowing much about Uruguay, by the end of the tour, Gabriel had told us so much about this beautiful country. Although we had first agreed to a 6 hour, it ended up being much longer as he took us to many places in Montevideo. Our group loves taking photos and he set the itinerary so that we had enough time to take photos without sacrificing any of the informative part of the tour. 5 stars for Gabriel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Allen, thank you so much for your great review! It was my pleasure meeting you and I really enjoyed our two days tour in Montevideo and Punta del Este. Thanks for teaching me what was written under the Confucius statue. From the very beginning I noticed that all 16 were great photographers, so I tried to do my best to fulfill your desire. All the best, Gabriel
Kate K.United States
Gabriel took excellent care of us from start to finish. He sent pictures before hand of exactly how to leave the terminal and he met us promptly. We got to see an incredible amount of the Montevideo area in the hours we had available.
