Make your way to the ferry port in Buenos Aires (or opt for hotel pickup) and prepare to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind. Hop aboard the ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia for a 1-hour scenic boat ride across the Rio de la Plata. When you disembark in Colonia, ask inside the ferry station for directions on where to meet your guide for your city sightseeing tour.
You'll get to know the charming town of Colonia, a UNESCO World Heritage site full of fascinating architecture. After your 1-hour tour, disembark the vehicle for an optional walking tour along cobblestone streets as your guide points out historical landmarks.
Afterward, you're set on your own for the remainder of the afternoon. Choose a restaurant for lunch, tasting regional Uruguayan specialties as well as Argentinian and international cuisine (own expense). Then wander the quaint streets of Colonia at your own pace. Peruse the local shops, visit the museums or take a stroll along the coastal beach.
When it's time to board the ferry for your return trip to Buenos Aires, enjoy a great vantage point for views of the city as you approach. Disembark at the ferry terminal and make your way back to your Buenos Aires hotel (or enjoy drop-off, if option selected).
Please note: Ferry tickets for this tour regularly sell out weeks in advance, so book ahead to avoid disappointment!
