Colonia del Sacramento Trip

When making your booking, you'll be able to choose from the following options: 

Ferry + Historic Center Tour

At the scheduled time, we'll set sail from the port in Buenos Aires on the fast ferry to Colonia del Sacramento. We'll dock in Colonia del Sacramento after a journey of around 1 hour 30 minutes.

Having disembarked, we'll set off on a guided walking tour of the historic centre of Colonia del Sacramento, one of the most beautiful cities in Uruguay. We'll spend an hour discovering the picturesque architecture of the UNESCO World Heritage Site-designated old quarter.

Admiring the façades of the historic buildings, we'll see how they combine Portuguese and Spanish colonial styles of architecture, reflecting the history of the city. During the tour, we'll also get to see the iconic lighthouse next to the Bastion de San Pedro, the Basilica of the Holy Sacrament and the cobbled street known as Calle de los Suspiros, the "Street of Sighs".

After the tour of Colonia del Sacramento, you'll have some free time until the afternoon, when it'll be time to take the ferry back to Buenos Aires.

Ferry + Bike Rental

If you book this option, you'll take the outbound ferry to Colonia del Sacramento.

Once you dock at the port, you'll have to go to a bicycle rental shop located at number 1 of Buenos Aires Street. There you'll be given your bike, so you can explore Colonia del Sacramento at your own pace.

You'll need to return your bike to the same place where it was given to you. Your ferry back to Buenos Aires will leave in the afternoon. Please note that you'll need to be at the pier 1 hour 30 minutes before departure.
