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.

Benny was our guide and from the start to finish he had us in his expert care. He told us what to expect and what to avoid. His knowledge of what we saw and what to look for was fascinating. He was very helpful in guiding me to make authentic purchases from emeralds, hats and even coffee and vanilla! Two thumbs up for this tour!

Coast Line and Casablance Post cruise

I was part of a large group of over 20 traveling together and we chose this trip. The driver and guide were excellent and the motorcoach was comfortable. We made several stops to take photos and we stopped for a lunch which was perfect. It included wine tasting and great choices for lunch. the restaurant was very nice and they took super care of us. I would recommend this trip to everyone leaving a ship in San Antonio headed to Santiago. They even dropped everyone off at their hotels. excellent tour and well worth the money.

Overall it was a nice excursion. The guide was knowledgeable, we're picked up on time in a little A/C bus. Walked for a while in the center of Montevideo as well as spending time in a near port quarter. Then were taken to some government building (Congress or similar).

Cooking Class Review
May 17, 2023
Guide was well educated and spoke good english. Trip through the local market was rough. Not sure it was necessary to walk through the market. Seemed to need to spend a lot of time before we actually arrived at the cooking class sight. picked up at the ship at about 8:30 AM...cooking class started at 11:00 AM

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Prompt pick up at cruise port. Comfortable van and informative guide. Small group of 8. Nice walking pace when touring areas with time to stop for photos. First time booking with Shore Excursion Group but will use again

This was a good tour. The guide did a great job exposing us to local foods. He was knowledgeable and very pleasant. I would recommend this tour. It does require quite a bit of walking.

We had someone waiting for us when got off the ship to take us straight there. Greeted by the sweet owner of a cute little bed and breakfast. She helped us get our helmets on and took us out back where the guide, Carla, was waiting with the horses. Ended up a private tour as just my husband and I went with her. Carla was great! She got us saddled up and off we went through fields, across a shallow river, through some woods and onto the beach along the Straight of Magellan. It was windy of course but really beautiful and such a great experience. Our horses were very calm and sweet and Carla took lots of pictures and even some video of us riding!! After the ride they had a snack prepared for us too!! Such a great day! I would highly recommend this tour!!!
