Private Tour: Colonia del Sacramento Day Trip from Buenos Aires

1 day
Full Day
About this activity
Your will be picked up at your selected location (hotel, apartment) and meet your driver who will transfer you to the ferry terminal, where you will board a fast ferry (1-hour trip) to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay. Upon arrival, you will meet your guide who will be waiting for you at the arrivals hall with a sign with your name on it.

After meeting your guide, enjoy your 1.5-hour walking tour in Colonia's historic quarter. See the Portón de Campo (city gate), where you will admire the old wall and wooden bridge. Next, head to Calle de los Suspiros (Street of Sighs), a narrow cobbled street surrounded by 18th century colonial houses. The street’s main attractive is the combination of the old houses, the colors and the river view at the end of it.

You will then arrive at 25 de Mayo Square (Main Square), which was created during the foundation of the city. Here, you can see some beautiful and well-preserved Portuguese-style houses including the Portuguese Museum, with remarkable stone walls of 90 centimeters(almost 3ft) width. You will also see Nacarello´s House, which has original furniture of the 18th century, and the Viceroy’s House, with a surprising name since there were never any viceroys in Colonia.

Afterwards, head to visit an archaeological site, which was formerly the original Portuguese construction destined for Residence of the Governor, destroyed by the Spanish in 1777. Your walking tour ends at the Basilica of the Holy Sacrament, which maintains the original design of stone walls and tiled domes.

After the walking tour, you have free time in Colonia to spend at your leisure. Your guide will give you advice on restaurants, museums, shopping, and how to return to the terminal on your own (it is just a 10-minute walk from Colonia historic quarter).

You will later board the ferry back to Buenos Aires and, upon arrival there, your private driver will meet you and drop you off at your selected location.

Very well taken care of, from pick-up at our hotel to drop-off. The short tour was informative, the tour guide excellent. We enjoyed having time on our own to explore the town. I was concerned about the short time in the town but actually it was perfect. We ate lunch at Charco Bistro on the river - had a traditional sandwich plus mint ginger tea. We saw a lot of different birds coming to the river to drink and then resting in the restaurant's garden. Highly recommend!

What an awesome tour.. Colonia is beautiful and quite a charming little town. The guided walking tour was amazing. Highly recommended. An excellent break away from the busy Buenos Aires.

My only complaint is that we did not stay a night in this little town. The guide was really nice and she gave you plenty of free time to do what you like. The town is charming and I recommend it.
