6 hours discovering Montevideo scenic seaside city and visiting a typical attractive Winery (see our two options)


We will share an enjoyable experience visiting a picturesque boutique Winery and learning about their wine, vineyards, wine making process and tasting exquisite first class wines including Tannat, "Uruguayan big wine". Beautiful well kept gardens and a warm and inviting place.

In addition, you will experience the best of Montevideo on this interesting tour of Uruguay's capital and most densely populated urban center. We'll go around this eclectic city and discover its amazing sites, from its historic downtown business district, art deco and neoclassical buildings as well as modern architecture next to the city's 30 km beaches, to the exclusive residential neighborhoods of Punta Carretas and Pocitos.

Learn about our history, culture and traditions and get the feel of the real local Montevidean.

I look forward to sharing my experience and affection for this amazing coastal city with you!

A Recent Review of this tour

Michelle was wonderful! We spent an extremely pleasant day away from the crowds visiting both the old and new Montevideo and its lovely seaside residential areas while hearing about its fascinating history, including Michelle's personal family's escape to Montevideo aboard the last ship to leave Europe before the onset of the Holocaust in the early 1940's. Included was a visit to a small, picturesque winery offering a 2 hour wine-making tour plus wine-tasting with delicious tapas..A perfect day!
