What You Can Expect
Admire the seaside homes of La Barra del Maldonado, a charming old fishing town. Then continue on to visit two popular beaches. At Playa Brava, snap photos of the must-see sculpture by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal: La Mano (The Hand), also known as Los Dedos (The Fingers), depicts five human fingers protruding from the sand. On the other side of the peninsula enjoy the ocean views at Playa Mansa, where you have free time for lunch (own expense).
Afterward, head to Casa Pueblo, a Mediterranean-style villa and art gallery perched on a cliff atop Punta Ballena. Designed by Uruguayan painter and sculpture Carlos Páez Vilaró, the 9-story, whitewashed building includes a museum and gallery (own expense) where you can learn about the life of the artist and the history behind his creation.
After a full day touring Punta del Este, you'll return back to your Montevideo hotel.
Very nice tour.
Loved this trip. Guide had lots of information. Bus very comfortable. Driver very good and careful.
Really liked the balance of touring and time by ourselves at various locations. An interesting mix of stops and great length of tour.
Rosanna was very good at explaining and answering questions. He English was not the best but I understood most of what she was saying. I would recommend doing this all day tour as it really has a lot to offer.
A wonderful day trip! So much to learn from Uruguay, their efforts on education, growth, orderly modern and traditional construction, incentive to diminish population hypertension by lowering salt intake by restaurants, etc. etc. great overall! Lilian our tour guide was excellent, great descriptions throughout route, highlighting route landmarks and traditions! The visit to Casa de Pueblo to learn about recognized Uruguayan Artist Carlos Paez Vilaro was a highlight. The lunch location and visit around Punta del Este was fantastic! Overall a great visit! We live in The US and this was our first time to visit Uruguay. We are happy to recommend it to our friends, family and colleagues. It is a true gem within South America! Another GREAT Tour by VIATOR!
Tour was very well coordinated the guide was amazing and the excursion was a huge bargain. Very satisfied. Highly recommended.
I am thoroughly impressed with the customer service and knowledge of LBTour. For 56, I was picked up from my hotel and taken east towards Punta Del Este. My group consisted of primarily Brazilian tourists, a couple from Peru, and myself. Our crew consisted of FredericoDriver and Frederica tour guide. As the only English speaker it was a little difficult to connect with others in the group due to the language barrier, but we definitely tried acting out the words we wanted to communicate. Frederica was amazing! She quickly switched from Portuguese to Spanish to English and her responses to questions were quick. she was very knowledgeable about Montevide, Piriopolis, San Antonio, and Punta Del Este. She recommend points of interest during our free time, and expressed that Punta Del Este had the best Dulce de leche in the whole of Uruguay.
The guide was amazing
