This multi-faceted tour begins with a picturesque drive from the pier into Montevideo's quaint Old City. Enroute, you'll first pass the monument which commemorates the Graf Spee, the famous WWII German warship whose sunken remains rest on the floor of the ocean a short distance outside the harbor.

Continuing along a scenic route through the city, you'll pass Independence Square and the Gral Artigas Monument before arriving at Battle y Ordóñez Park, home of a vibrantly realistic ox cart monument, obelisk and the Estadio Centenario - World Soccer Monument. The monument was erected to commemorate the fact that Estadio Centenario is the site where the first World Soccer Cup organized by FIFA was held. Leaving Battle y Ordóñez Park, you'll travel to the magnificent Legislative Palace, considered to be one of the three most beautiful legislative buildings in the world because of its ornate marble structure. Following an enjoyable stop here, you'll make your way to equally remarkable Prado Park for a short visit. Noted for its historical monuments and attractive gardens that feature a stunning display of roses, the Park was created from the 175- acre estate built by 19th-century financier, José Buschental, who brought in exotic fish from Asia to fill his streams as well as animals and plants from around the world. A statue of Buschental can be found on the grounds today.

Re-boarding your coach, you'll head north to the Carrau Winery, a major exporter of Uruguayan wines located in the Colon residential area. Situated in a park-like setting, this colonial-styled winery was constructed in 1894 and actually is the site of an ancient granite cave. While at the winery, you will be treated to a tasting of fine Uruguayan wine and champagne, accompanied by a light snack of cheese and ham.

A delightful steam train ride back to Montevideo tops off this thoroughly enjoyable day of exploring.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1 hour of walking. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The steam train does not operate on Sundays and will be substituted with a panormamic coach drive back to the pier.
