  • "Good trip"

    Good service, everything on time and not rushed. My only issue was that when booking it wasn't clear that it was a bus from Montevideo then a ferry from Colonia. I had thought I was booking a ferry from Montevideo back to Buenos Aires so that perhaps needs to be clearer.

  • "¡Todo perfecto! "

    Tenía miedo porque no conocía la agencia, pero me arriesgué y todo perfecto, llegué y mi reservación perfecta en el día y horario establecidos. Además la compra es super fácil y te da las opciones más económicas, en caso de preferir lo.

  • "Swift, problemfree ferry ride"

    I got ferry tickets to travel from Buenos Aires in Argentina to Colonia in Uruguay online from I paid about 25% less then I would have if I had bought them directly from the ferry company. I was a bit worried initially that the email proof of purchase might not be accepted in Argentina but everything went seamlessly and I had a very enjoyable day trip to Uruguay. Would highly recommend.
