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.

Great value

Our guide was wonderful. Took us around town and explained everything and gave us a bit of history. We went to the major sites and took pictures. She even threw in a visit to a wine and cheese tasting bar. I would definitely tell all my traveling friends to book this tour. The tour doesn’t take you back to your hotel but you have a choice of where to be dropped of. We decided the obelisk was the best location for us.

Best shore excursion ever.

I really can kick myself because this person was the best guide we have had. He was an architecture student but he also new a lot of history of the region and answered every questions. The tour gave us time to take pictures of the town square and then we went around Montevideo. Took pictures of the 3D sign. Went to a market that reminded us of Budapest city market. We hit all the picture spots and then it rained but the tour ended near the pier and were able to go into some artisan shops.

Great Tour in the Beautiful Old Town Area
December 26, 2023
I was surprised that my husband and I were the only ones on this tour, it was great. Our Guide was a wealth of knowledge about Cartagena. We went on the tour fairly early, but it was worth it. The traffic to the old town as well as the town itself can get very crowded, as the day goes on. Our driver got us there very quickly with a safe car that had great AC. There were no crowds yet in the walled city. It was great seeing a lot of the vendors setting up and not being bothered by them like the large bus tours that were arriving while our tour was ending. You won't be disappointed, be prepared for a fun and informative day. Another note that the Lemonade being sold by the push cart vendors is the real deal with fresh squeezed juice.

A private tour without the private price
December 11, 2023
The owner of the company met with us on debarkation and introduced us to Fausto, our driver. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we were the only guests in a 4 person car after passing bus loads for other excursions. Fausto was informative and accommodating mixing the tasting with history and some unique spots without feeling rushed. We even had to start turning down food, lol. Fausto respected the economic lifeline of the populace through street venders and also leaving space for us to turn down or purchase from them as we saw fit. We always felt safe.

Wonderful Punta Tombo Trip to See The Penguins
November 29, 2023
In January 2023, we took an excursion via Shore Excursions Group from the Celebrity Infinity cruise ship. After a lengthy drive from the port to Punta Tombo, we had a couple hours to walk the path to explore thousands of penguins in their natural habitat. The penguins come right up to the visitors and walk so close to use. We got some great photos. The end of the walking path is a viewing area at the beach where we saw many penguins going in to swim / catch their food, and walk back to their habitat - a beautiful sight. This excursion is highly recommended.

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!
