    What to Expect
    After your cruise ship pulls into port in Montevideo, your private guide whisks you away for a half-day sightseeing tour of the Uruguayan capital. Travel to the city’s major landmarks, starting your shore excursion at Independence Plaza (Plaza Independencia), situated on the border of Old City. 
    View the impressive statue of José Artigas — a monument to the national military hero — and admire the 26-story Palacio Salvo (Palacio Legislativo), once the tallest building in South America. Walk with your guide to the opposite end of the plaza to see Puerta de la Ciudadela, one of the few surviving remnants of the city wall that once encircled colonial Montevideo.
    Next, you’re driven to the residential neighborhood of El Prado, whose tree-lined streets feature early 20th-century mansions. See Prado Park before you pass through Parque Batlle, a barrio and major public central park, home to Estadio Centenario, the national soccer stadium.
    Relax on the scenic drive through elegant Carrasco and stroll along a section of La Rambla, a beachside promenade boasting coastal views. After your half-day tour, you’re transferred back to the Montevideo port.
    Optional Winery Tour with Wine TastingIf you’re a wine lover who wishes to learn about Uruguay’s winemaking tradition, upgrade your shore excursion for a winery and vineyard tour. You’ll taste an award-winning tannat wine — red wine made from tannat grapes, one of the most prominent grape varieties used in Uruguayan wine.

    The guide knew practically no English. His description of something was what it was and, possibly, when it was built. He could answer no questions without stammering and coming up with nothing. We had expected to learn history, culture and architecture. We got none of...More
