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.

Our tour guide Lourdes was awesome and extremely knowledgeable. I appreciate that our ferry was the first one out in the morning so that we had a bit of time to explore Colonia before it became more crowded.

What an awesome tour.. Colonia is beautiful and quite a charming little town. The guided walking tour was amazing. Highly recommended. An excellent break away from the busy Buenos Aires.

This tour was incredibly overpriced and a complete waste of time. I haven't had a bad experience with Viator until now. The ferry tickets are only 40, the transfer can easily be taken care of with a 20 uber, and the tour was abysmal. I've had much better free tours. Colonia is beautiful and worth visiting, but go on your own!! Waking up early and paying for the tour was a huge mistake - there isn't enough to do in Colonia to entertain you from 9-5. It is, however, a wonderful place to go on your own time or for an afternoon. The tour was almost comical, with our guide walking at a snail's pace and pointing out this is a restaurant, this is an old car, and this is a church. I didn't learn anything. In summary, go to Colonia on your own save 100 and you'll have a great time!

The tour was extremely expensive for an hour a half walking tour of Colonia. Our tour guide was Ok. I strongly recommend including in your tour price museum tickets with a tour guide. The tour guide informed us where to purchase tickets, in three museums and all the information was in Spanish.

My only complaint is that we did not stay a night in this little town. The guide was really nice and she gave you plenty of free time to do what you like. The town is charming and I recommend it.
