South America Shore Excursions

South America is one of the most fascinating places on Earth. While the cruise lines focus on your transportation, we focus on your destination. From Santiago Chile in the West, to Ushuaia at the southernmost tip of South America to Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro in the East (and many ports in between), Shore Excursions Group offers an outstanding collection of South America cruise excursion activities for our customers. In Buenos Aires, enjoy a shore excursion to the fascinating city center or travel to an authentic horse ranch where "Gauchos" will share their unique way of life with you. On one of our Montevideo shore tour trips, see the Parliament Palace and the many other architectural and cultural highlights of this city. In Rio de Janeiro, enjoy a shore excursion to world famous Sugar Loaf with its stunning views of the city or discover Corcovado and the fascinating Christ the Redeemer Statue.

See the City Like a Local
April 16, 2020
Unfortunately, we don't remember the name of our guide, but he did a great job. This is the way to see a city....walking, taking a bus, taking the subway. You really get a feel for the city and the people on a tour like this. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was fun to walk and talk about the history and current events.

Great Tour
April 16, 2020
First off our guide was Rodrigo and he did a great job. He did an awesome job discussing the city, its history and the current events shaping Chile. Chile was having some issues and Rodrigo did a great job explaining what was happening while remaining objective. We really feel that we walked away with a better understanding of the city and country. He also recommended a perfect lunch spot overlooking the town square - awesome lunch!

Great day in Punta Arenas
April 10, 2020
Our guide Geraldo (I think that’s his name) was knowledgeable and very nice. We saw some highlights of the city and had lunch at the market. Exploring the cemetery was interesting. Since there were only 4 of us, we were not rushed. This is the way I like to get a glimpse of a city. All in all, a great day!

Tango and Dinner
April 10, 2020
What a great night! The food was very good. Much better than I expected given they were serving lots and lots of people. And the dancers and singers were excellent! My first tango show and I loved it! And they picked us up, and dropped us off at our hotel; very convenient.

Fun Day
April 10, 2020
What a fun day! Starting with our tour guide, Tina, and meeting Angie and her husband at Casa Penaflor. Angie is a great host and so interesting and funny! Seeing the countryside and spend a little time in Coyhaique was a good taste of the area. Love it!

A Great Trip
April 02, 2020
We were met on the pier right at the bottom of the gangway. A clean and comfortable bus met us on time with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide.This tour provided us an excellent view of the city of Ushuaia as well as the surrounding countryside and the Park. Timing was fluid and we made numerous stops for pictures and stretching of our legs.

A good overview
April 02, 2020
We took advantage of this tour from our cruise ship. The directions for meeting this tour were clear and accurate with flexible options of returning to the cruise port or being dropped off in locations in town. Our guide spoke excellent English and provided us with a very good overview of Montevideo

Great tour
April 02, 2020
An excellent tour of Buenos Aires. We were met promptly at our hotel and escorted to our transportation. We were a small group of 12 people and as such, our interaction with our guide was excellent. This tour took us to varied locations throughout the city with ample time to take pictures and explore locations.

Great photo opportunities
April 01, 2020
Our guide "Benny" was very informative and certainly knew the area and history. Easy to understand, too. Benny helped us understand who we could trust for purchases and who we may want to avoid. Our visit to Saint Peter Claver Church was interesting and awesome for photos because it was built at the highest point in Cartagena.

Cartegena Horse Drawn Carriage
April 01, 2020
Great excursion. Almost like a private tour. We were with one other couple while on the guided tour through the city in a mini van and were by ourselves for the horse drawn carriage. Cartegena is a beautiful city and for first time visitors this tour is hard to beat.
