Discover the beautiful capital of Uruguay on this tour from its port. This tour of Montevideo for Cruise Passengers is the ideal way to see the city in just 3 hours. 

Montevideo City Tour for Cruise Passengers

Our panoramic tour of Montevideo for cruise passengers conveniently starts from the city's port. During our three hour journey, we will explore the most iconic landmarks in this Rio Platenese city, all from the comfort of a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle.

The Mercado Agrícola de Montevideo, known as MAM, is a delightful Farmer' Market located only 5 minutes from the port. We will enter this elegant building, which is over a century old, to browse the stalls of locally grown produce. You will discover the delicious, Uruguayan gastronomy. Our tour then continues to the beating heart of the Old City of Montevideo, Independence Square. In this area, you will encounter some of the most iconic monuments in the city, such as the Solis Theatre and the Metropolitan Cathedral.

From the historic city center, we will head to the neighborhood of El Prado and its famous park. Here you will find the vivid rose garden and the monument to the Last Charrúas. The next stop on the route is the 'La Carreta' national monument, situated just in front of the iconic Estadio Centenario football stadium, which hosted the very first World Cup. Our final destination is Pocitos Beach, where you will have the opportunity to photograph the famous city name in front of the seafront.

At the end of the tour, we will take you back to your hotel in Montevideo.
