Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

I am thoroughly impressed with the customer service and knowledge of LBTour. For 56, I was picked up from my hotel and taken east towards Punta Del Este. My group consisted of primarily Brazilian tourists, a couple from Peru, and myself. Our crew consisted of FredericoDriver and Frederica tour guide. As the only English speaker it was a little difficult to connect with others in the group due to the language barrier, but we definitely tried acting out the words we wanted to communicate. Frederica was amazing! She quickly switched from Portuguese to Spanish to English and her responses to questions were quick. she was very knowledgeable about Montevide, Piriopolis, San Antonio, and Punta Del Este. She recommend points of interest during our free time, and expressed that Punta Del Este had the best Dulce de leche in the whole of Uruguay.
