Full description
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. Afterward, return to Montevideo.

Our guide was super friendly and gave us good tips during the tour. We took a big bus and, as there are many people, it took almost 40 minutes because a couple was late! This should not decrease the tour time, as it already runs! I suggest researching the places to go in Punta, and the restaurants too.

Wow! What a great tour. I loved getting out into other parts of Uruguay and hearing about the history of the country. The stop at Casapueblo was a highlight. Also, Marcella- the tour guide was very kind and made sure i was understanding all that was happening as I was the only English speaker on the bus. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. Looking forward to others as well!
