What an amazing day! Our guide was fabulous! She made sure to communicate with each of us individually to make sure we understood all aspects and offered her help (even gave us all a treat). Piripolis was nice but wait til you see Casapueblo! Prepay for the ticket so you don't wait in line. We could have used 15 more minutes more there. Punta del Este was lovely with time to walk the penisula and see the sites that we drove past in the bus. I didn't join the group for lunch and had my own on the beach by The Hand. I think because everyone was on time and we weren't completely full, we got on the road a bit early and made it to the stops ahead of the other busses, making the stops less crowded. How lucky! The bus was clean and the drive felt safe.
Other than the tour company not having me on a manifest for pick up...it all worked out. Great little town! Shouldn't be missed! I would have liked a little less detail on the history and maybe a little less history. The flora & fauna was lovely. The buildings were charming and the people friendly. Perhaps explanation of some of the farm (crops and animals) both directions. Being English speaking, you won't get all the same details as Spanish & Portuguese on any tours. It's fine, I can understand some! The guide went out of his way to help me especially after disastrous pick up. Certainly didn't make the other passengers happy either.
Nice little tour out of town for the day. well worth buying the add-on tickets for Casa Pueblo to skip the queue. Plenty of time in Punta Del Este to walk around and have a meal. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Our guide was great (we travelled on the 9th February) - didn't catch his name, but please thank him for a great tour, and for letting me try his tea - Caleb & Mark (London)
The tour was good but 2hrs 50minutes was too long for lunchtime break.An hour less would have been long enough. Maybe a bit more time to wander around the older part ofmothers the town. Also I paid for my ticket to visit Casa Mueblo in advance but had to pay again on entry as the guide did not have the tickets. She did however refund my payment.
Good commentary from guide with interesting stops particularly the famous artist’s house. Weather was not good for our tour but, that cannot be controlled! Overall a good experience!
