Ex Buenos Aires

Home   Tour   Colonia Stopover

Tour Overview

By boarding a ferry across the River Plate from Buenos Aires, you can virtually step back in time with a visit to the enchanting town of Colonia. As its name suggests, the town of Colonia was once a colony under control of both the Spanish and the Portuguese during different periods in history. The town is so historically well preserved, retaining most of its decorative buildings and lined with cobblestone streets, that it is considered a UNESCO world heritage site.

Visit the streets of Santa Rita, San Gabriel, the Matriz church, the Bastion del Carmen, the famous Calle de los Suspiros (street of sighs) – which is often used for historical films – the Puerta del Campo and the Plaza Mayor 25 de Mayo.



Upon arrival transfer to your hotel. Evening at leisure.


Today you will be picked up from your hotel and taken around the city for a tour of the city of Colonia.

This charming UNESCO World Heritage site is a nostalgic city preserving its much unchanged Portuguese style architecture. Walk its cobblestone streets to see brightly painted homes with the  flowerpots that decorate window sills. The Historic Centre is the heart of the city, it is here you’ll find many buildings from the Portuguese colonial age.


Enjoy your last breakfast here in Colonia before being transferred to the port.
