Cruise stop in Montevideo

My husband and I will be in Montevideo for a day and would like to do either a tour of the city or do a wine tour... Is the town worth spending the day touring or should we check out the wineries? can't decide!!! thanks

A tour of the city is what I would recommend.

I agree with Monte: a wine tour is a wine tour, but getting to know the city of Montevideo makes for quite an interesting day tour.

The cruise ship offers a Montevideo tour with a Juanico Winery Tour, but it's expensive. I love wines and wineries, my husband loves architecture. So, this would be the perfect tour for us. However, we would like to do it on our own by taxi if possible. Do you know if there are taxi services that do this and what the cost is? Or if anyone knows of a reliable taxi driver who does this and can share his name, that would be great! Thanks again

The government building is worth seeing.

Jackie, can you share what you ended up doing in Montevideo? We will be visiting via cruiseship and are researching wine tours/tastings out of Montevideo, but want to be sure we have time to take a self guided walking tour around the city.
