Lynn SurdockUnited States
Thanks for a great tour of Montevideo. We also went to a winery and did a wine sampling with appetizers. Had a full day tour off our cruise ship. Pick up and drop off right at the port. It was nice having a driver as well so we could leave our valuables in the car when we went for a walk to see the sites on foot.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lynn, Thank you for your positive comment. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. Kind regards, Gabriel
Annie CheungUnited States
We had a wonderful 6 hours tour with Gabriel for 10 of us in a very comfortable Mercedes van. Gabriel is a retired architect and very polished and informative. He was also very flexible to accommodate our changes. Highly recommend him as a guide for Montevideo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Annie for you nice review. It was my pleasure meeting you and did very much enjoy the tour, time is never enough when we have such an interested and engaged group. Come back! All the best, gabriel
Jan KrentzUnited States
Gabriel was an experienced guide who gave great directions on how to find him from the cruise pier. We were a bit surprised to have both a guide (Gabriel) and driver, which explained why the tour was more expensive than some of the other tours we took. We opted to go the a winery with a tasting, which was fun to try.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thank you Jan for your nice review, the tour was fun and meeting you a great pleasure. Hope you make it back. Have a great year ahead! All the best, Gabriel

Michele CullenMelrose, MA, United States
We had a fabulous Montevideo City and Wine Tour with Gabriel. As a Montevideo native and retired Architect, Gabriel was able to provide us with detailed knowledge of his beloved city and country. We visited all of the key monuments as outlined in the tour description. The visit to the Stagnari Winery was one of the highlights of our day. The staff at the winery was extremely welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Great wine, food and friends! I highly recommend booking a tour with Gabriel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Michele, thanks for your great review! It was so nice and such fun meeting you, I did really enjoy our time together. Hope you make it back someday. Have a great year ahead, all the best, Gabriel

Samantha HillUnited States
Gabriel was a fabulous guide. He spoke excellent English, was very personable, and provided excellent insight into the culture and history of Montevideo. We toured with my elderly mother who walks with a cane. Gabriel was very attentive and respectful to this and ensured mom was taken care of. He went at her pace. Highly recommend Gabriel. Thank you, as this was one of our favorite tours!
Gabriel met us at the hotel, as suggested with a driver. He was very knowledgeable and gave us the tour that we had asked for, jumping in to translate when we needed. He also gave us some tips for restaurants and where to find the best artisan woolens that we were interested in. A great day out!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Liz for your feedback and kind words. I'm happy you enjoyed the tour and look forward to meeting you again. All the best, Gabriel

Nancy EastlundAiea, HI, United States
Hola and Aloha Gabriel! Our Montevideo day tour with Gabriel as our guide, was full of fun, history and excitement. Our Sun Tours Hawaii group of 33 truly enjoyed Gabriel's professionalism, enthusiasm, and knowledge. He planned out a great day with me in knowing what the group wanted to do, needed to see and fulfilled all of our expectations. We really enjoyed Uruguay. I look forward to using Gabriel's services again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nancy and Lon, Thank you for nice review. It was my pleasure meeting you, and having fun with such a nice group.Unfortunately I had to share the Hawaiian chocolates and coffee which were too good!!!!. I enjoyed the tour very much and hope to see you back soon.Warm regards, Gabriel
Kathleen KratzUnited States
Very informed about his city and pointed out many great architectural sites. Took us to places we wanted to see. Don't miss the market! Would recommend him for any visit in Uruguay
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words ,and nice review I hope to see you back in Punta de Este, I will prepare the weather to be sunny warm and sky blue. Have a great year, all the best. Gabriel
John KubasBirmingham, ALABAMA, United States
Gabriel was a great guide and very intellegent and knowledgeable. Our only negative was the lunch spot- 3 plates of beef pieces, 4 beers, two colas and melted cheese pieces $120 for 3 couples and Gabriel. Most expensive lunch in 18 tours. He needs to find a new place for tour groups..........
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rita for your kind words. Regarding lunch prices I agree with you, but in Uruguay you would find the same prices in similar restaurants. Besides, restaurants charge 22% VAT and a table fee of 3 USD pp for cutlery, bread and butter plus 10% tip. Food has international reasonable prices, but beverages in all Uruguayan restaurants are ridiculous, they charge double the price than supermarkets. I will follow your suggestion and find a new place for tour groups. All the best, Gabriel
Linda RobisonUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Gabriel. After a bit of a rocky start because the van was 30 minutes late the rest of the day was great. Gabriel was well informed and a great guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Linda for your kind words and review. I really enjoyed your company and the tour was great. Hope to see you again, all the best, Gabriel
Renee DuffeyUnited States
Gabriel was extremely organized, professional and informative. He made sure that our needs were met and that we saw as much as possible within our limited time frame.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Renee for your nice and kind words. I really enjoyed all the tour and our chat along the way and at the winery. For your next visit, I promise to have an old Ford T to tour you around the vineyards. I send you all my warmest regards, hoping to see you sometime in the future. Take care! Gabriel
Susan PotterUnited States
Gabriel's tour was wonderful.He should subtitle it architectural tour of Montevideo. I never expected to see so much of the city. We combined it with Stagnari winery visit and lunch. Excellent day tour. I highly recommend it. The pace was great and we enjoyed both the city sights and the drive to the countryside to the winery. Thank you Gabe for a great tour.
John McmurrayUnited States
5 star for Gabriel accomodating a late change to our original schedule to visit this vineyard (owner/manager sent email asking/saying she would like to meet us). Gabriel was extremely conversant on all aspects of our visit, and stayed with us after we concluded the tour, to provide advice and do shopping in the city. Nice guy, and first class operation. highly recommend, and we would have no issue seeking his services again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, I thank you so much for your comment. It was a real pleasure meeting you and I enjoyed every moment I spent showing you my city highlights. I hope to see you again in the near future. Thank you! Gabriel
John McmurrayUnited States
To begin with, Gabriel was early to pick us up to begin our tour, which was a pleasant and unusual surprise. We were provided a brochure with info on the places we were going to visit, and advised of the times associated for the different visits. Gabriel accomodated a late change in visitation schedule. Gabriel was well versed on our stops, and assisted in any language barriers that may have existed. We would highly recommend his services to anyone wishing to learn more about Uruaguay.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Let me thank you again, it was my pleasure offering you the best hoping to see you soon in the near future. Sincerely, Gabriel
Paul AustinUnited States
Gabriel has a very good understanding of the architecture of Montevideo shich made his narrative very interesting. In addition the wine tour and tasting that we attended was just Nancy and I in a very select winery. It was by far the best wine tasting experience that we have ever had. I would recommend Gabriel to any one. A tour not to be missed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul and Nancy, I thank you so much for your comment. It was a real pleasure meeting you and I enjoyed every moment I spent showing you my city highlights and winery. I hope to see you again in the near future. Thank you! Gabriel
