From Montevideo: Punta del Este Full-Day Tour

1. From Montevideo: Punta del Este Full-Day Tour

Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your hotel in Montevideo. Take a scenic drive down the coast of Montevideo and Canelone. Discover enchanting landscapes composed of mountain ranges, pines, and eucalyptus. As you journey to Punte del Este, your knowledgable guide will share with you the region's history, including its connection to the mysticism of the Templars and alchemy. Continue across the 10 Road accompanied by the De la Plata River landscape. Arrive in Piriápolis, “the sun’s city.” Visit the Argentino Hotel and take in the spectacular view from the San Antonio Hill. Stop at Punta Ballena and visit Casapueblo, a well-known art museum/workshop/hotel. Arrive at Punta del Este on the Mansa Beach, crossing Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria Port, where the De la Plata River meets the ocean. From here, you can admire the Lobos Island and its lighthouse. Marvel at Punte del Este’s most emblematic Monument: La Mano. This sculpture of a hand emerges from the sand– seemingly reaching for the skies. Enjoy some free time in the city. Take photos, shop, and explore the city on your own. Choose the option with lunch included and you can sit down for a meal at a Punte del Este restaurant. After your free time, meet your guide for a tour of the city’s Beverly Hill neighborhood. See the mansions and lush gardens. Explore the Marconi and El Cantegril neighborhoods.

Your guide will provide an in-depth commentary about the most important characters in the city’s development and how they made the city grow through novel marketing schemes. View a 42-foot (13-meter) stretch of the city's original wall, and stroll along the 25 de Mayo to learn about the original layout of Montevideo’s historic buildings, putting the first colonial Governor's Home into its current-day context.

What people are saying about Montevideo

Very well organised. Pick up from the hotel and transfer back. Nice place for lunch. Unfortunately far too little time for the booked Casa Pueblo museum. (20 minutes) Perhaps this is the result of some guests being unpunctual. Definitely annoying.

Perfect! As pessoas super amáveis, tanto a guia quanto o motorista. Tinha imaginado um tour só até Punta mas fui descobrindo muitas coisas no caminho. Ônibus confortável e super pontuais para nos buscar!

Marcela la guía y Daniel el conductor, estuvieron fabulosos ! El tour súper completo, con tiempo para cada actividad. Punta del este una joya en Suramérica . Muy recomendada la actividad.

Marcella was a rockstar and could not do more to make the trip great for everyone. Jose was a great driver too. enough time at each stop. good lunch reccomendations too!

Great tour. Punctuality, information and the attention of the guide Carmem and the promptness of the driver Raimundo. I recommend!
