Montevideo - Excursions and day trips

Known as the Uruguayan capital, Montevideo is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city with plenty to do. If you are visiting the country, you may find that you will spend the majority of your time here. However, you should also be aware that there are many things to see outside of the city. You can make use of day trips or excursions to other parts of the country.

A visit to Colonia, a beautiful, laid back colonial outpost, is a great way to spend a day. This picturesque town is situated on the other side of the Rio de la Plata, thirty miles from Buenos Aires. The town's historic quarter has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. The cobbled streets and picturesque setting are a great place to spend a few hours exploring.


One of the highlights of a visit to Colonia is its stunning lighthouse. The 19th-century building is a replica of the original that was built in the base of the gate of the old Citadel. It offers amazing views of Punta del Este.

In addition to the lighthouse, there are many other sights to see in Colonia. You can take a stroll along the cobbled streets, shop in the markets, or visit the beaches out of town. You can even rent bikes and ride around the city.


You will also visit the Legislative Palace of Montevideo, which features the General Assembly of Uruguay. You can also enjoy a tour of the Agricultural Market.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
