5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

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.

Everything went perfectly. I appreciate the timing and ease. Driver was waiting promptly in both directions to the ferry. Tour guide was knowledgable and well informed about the history of Uruguay. Colonia is special and worthwhile. I will recommend this tour to friends who come to Buenos Aires in the future. Thank you.

Everything went as planned. The driver showed up at our hotel as planned and was there to meet the ferry when we arrived back in B.A. He was very cordial and efficient. The best part, though, was our guide Karen. She was great!! Very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. We had a wonderful time on our walking tour with her and she set the stage for a great day. One of her suggestions for lunch was Charco, a restaurant which was extremely enjoyable. Colonia is a great, quiet place that is perfect for a day away from the hustle/bustle of B.A.

Colonia is a fabulous town and well worth a visit. Lots of history, great scenery and grand old buildings. The ferry trip took longer because of engine issues. Our guide was great. The town is small and be visited easily on a day trip.

The tour ran like clockwork with no time spent waiting between pick up and boarding ferry. Colombia was gorgeous, but it was a miserable rainy day. The walking tour was therefore conducted in the pouring rain. However, it was a lovely day and well organised.
