Tour description

Traditional Free City Tour

History and culture with a professional local guide

In this dynamic and entertaining free tour, we will focus on the history of the main points of the historic center of the old Colonia del Sacramento , declared a World Heritage Site since 1995.

We will also make a review of the period prior to said declaration, claiming the old "Barrio Sur", original nomenclature of what is now called the Historic District.

Among the outstanding places that we will visit are:

  • The wall and gate of the citadel
  • Lighthouse
  • Ruins of the Convent of San Francisco Xavier
  • Main Square
  • Governor's Square
  • Street of Sighs

The walk also offers the possibility of visiting museums, but the income is not included, in case the passenger wishes to access, the entrance must be paid directly at the door of the premises.

This free tour is only confirmed if there is a minimum of 4 passengers for the tour.

If you have never done a free tour and do not have an exact notion of payment, to help you we would like to tell you that the suggested MINIMUM amount is at least USD 10 PER PERSON, which may vary according to your consideration, always taking into account the time and effort that each guru dedicates to offer the best of himself.

We are waiting for you in Colonia del Sacramento! :)

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
