There’s more to Uruguay than you (might) think!
Staying in Buenos Aires and having some spare time? Why not going for a trip to Colonia del Sacramento and Montevideo in Uruguay?

Located just a one-hour ferry ride from Buenos Aires across the “de la Plata” River, it is really easy to squeeze in a two day visit from neighbouring Argentina.

This 2-Days and 1 night trip to Colonia and Montevideo from Buenos Aires is the perfect activity to escape for a while from Argentina’s bustling megapolis and explore Uruguay’s shining star.
The tour starts early in the morning as the driver picks you up from your hotel/airbnb and takes you to Buenos Aires’ ferry station. After going through customs (note that passports are required) you board the ferry for a comfortable and pleasant 1 1/2 hours ride across the widest river in the world crossing the international border between Argentina and Uruguay.
Upon arrival you meet your guide, and a driver takes you all to the gateway to the historic quarter where your walking tour around Colonia’s old town begins. During the 2 hours walk, as you get to visit each of the city’s landmarks, your very passionate, attentive, informative, knowledgeable, and helpful local expert with outstanding English skills takes you on a journey back in time, bringing what you see to life with their live commentary full of background information, facts and insights that you will not be able to find in any book or travel guide.

Along the way, several places are offered for you to have a traditional lunch (not included). At the chosen place you are given 1 ½ hours to enjoy your meal.
After finishing the tour, you will have spare time for lunch (not included) or walking by your own the historic helmet. By the afternoon you will have a transfer to Montevideo and, after the hotel check in, you will have a free night.

On the next day, after spending the night and having breakfast at the hotel, your guide will pick you up at the hotel for a 3 hour tour through the Montevideo main attractions. Once you finish the tour, you will have spare time to lunch (not included) or walk by the city places of your interest.

In the afternoon, you will be picked up by your selected hotel heading to board the ferry from Montevideo back to Buenos Aires and, upon arrival, a driver will receive you and take you to a selected location.

At Signature Tours, we highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to explore one of South America’s capital cities in a single day but is not willing to deal with the planning themself. Leave the organization up to us so that everything you have to worry about is enjoying your getaway to Montevideo.
