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

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.
