Perfect day trip from Buenos Aires. Plan on spending at least 3 hours, longer if you want to have a meal.
Very photogenic and touristy, great for walking around and learning about Portuguese and Spanish history.
One can take a day trip to Uruguay from Buenos Aires on the fast ferry and it is well worth it! The ferry ticket included a short walking tour of the historic district which gets you oriented. We rented bicycles and rode for a couple...More
Picturesque place - heaven for photographers. Small but well preserved with lots of hidden corners and nice restaurants/bars. You can cover all interesting points in one day, but don't miss the sunsets views from one of the restaurants/bars overlooking the river.

I bought the English walking tour through the ferry company Buquebus. I did not GET the English walking tour, however, since they didn't have anyone available to provide it in English! So buyer beware. Fortunately, my Spanish is adequate enough I was able to get something out of it nonetheless, but just know that buying the English touring doesn't necessarily mean you'll get it.
