Crazy expensive and wouldn’t recommend
Robert_C
, Mar 2020
Tour guide was very knowledgeable but this was a very overpriced excursion. It basically covered a 90 minute private tour followed by 5 1/2 hours of free time. Really? The round trip ferry was $21 USD per person which would have made the 90 min tour cost $336 USD based on two people. Nothing against the tour guide but I really feel ripped off and should be asking for money back.

Wonderful village, good guide, great lunch. Takes an hour each way to get through check in, emigration, customs, etc. Pickup at hotel was prompt. Return ferry was 15 min late but driver was waited for us. Thought there might be too much time after end of guided tour and check in for return but not really. Plenty to see and do. Sycamores in bloom caused allergies to flare. Could do on own but guide was very additive. All in all worth the money.

We book this trip with the idea to spend a day at Uruguay while staying the Buenos Aires. It takes a while in the ferry terminal to check-in and get to Colonia but it is worth it. The old town is remarkable and peaceful. The tour guide is very nice and friendly and showing us a great restaurant at the old street. Highly recommended for people who likes old ruins and old style building. Nothing munificent but ancient and old fashion stone houses.

Very well taken care of, from pick-up at our hotel to drop-off. The short tour was informative, the tour guide excellent. We enjoyed having time on our own to explore the town. I was concerned about the short time in the town but actually it was perfect. We ate lunch at Charco Bistro on the river - had a traditional sandwich plus mint ginger tea. We saw a lot of different birds coming to the river to drink and then resting in the restaurant's garden. Highly recommend!

First- it is definitely worth it to go to Colonia del Sacramento but DO NOT do it via this trip. It is incredibly overpriced. I recommend just get a taxi and go buy your own tickets for a third of the cost. Doing it through viator gave me a very short trip and I didn't get to explore the city as much as I would have liked. The walking tour was nice- but nothing you couldn't read online before you go. Plus this was the only non-refundable trip I booked in Argentina and I booked a lot and a friend was out 300 who could make it. Wake up early- get the first ferry out- buying tickets online ahead of time can get you an under 100 ticket. Spend a full day shopping and eating in Colonia.
