If you are cruisers, after leaving the cruise, walk along a green path about 200 yards to the Port exit blue iron bar door. It's behind some trees next to the Tourism Ministry. I'll be next to this exit holding a sign with your name. If you don't find me, please give me a personal call.

We were a party of four arriving by Oceania cruise ship. Michelle promptly met us at the cruise port and we headed out for our tour. We toured beautiful Montevideo where Paula showed us the highlights and gave us a history of the city. We then headed out of the city to the Bouza Winery. We had a tour of the winery which included an outstanding and elegant lunch with wine pairing. We had a wonderful day with Michelle and would highly recommend.
