From Montevideo: Punta del Este Full-Day Tour
- Pickup available
- Duration: 9 hours
What an amazing day! Our guide was fabulous! She made sure to communicate with each of us individually to make sure we understood all aspects and offered her help (even gave us all a treat). Piripolis was nice but wait til you see Casapueblo! Prepay for the ticket so you don't wait in line. We could have used 15 more minutes more there. Punta del Este was lovely with time to walk the penisula and see the sites that we drove past in the bus. I didn't join the group for lunch and had my own on the beach by The Hand. I think because everyone was on time and we weren't completely full, we got on the road a bit early and made it to the stops ahead of the other busses, making the stops less crowded. How lucky! The bus was clean and the drive felt safe.
Nice little tour out of town for the day. well worth buying the add-on tickets for Casa Pueblo to skip the queue. Plenty of time in Punta Del Este to walk around and have a meal. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Our guide was great (we travelled on the 9th February) - didn't catch his name, but please thank him for a great tour, and for letting me try his tea - Caleb & Mark (London)
The tour was good but 2hrs 50minutes was too long for lunchtime break.An hour less would have been long enough. Maybe a bit more time to wander around the older part ofmothers the town. Also I paid for my ticket to visit Casa Mueblo in advance but had to pay again on entry as the guide did not have the tickets. She did however refund my payment.
It's impressive the guide was switching between Spanish, Portugese and English. But we felt he always spoke more Spanish than English. When it came to introductions in English, it felt it was shorter than other languages. The tour was well planned, organized and we enjoyed it.
The process worked well and we got ahead of the queue which was useful as we were part of an organised tour and had very limited time. Beautiful setting, interesting and original art work. Best bit of Punta del Este day trip
