Montevideo Buenos Aires Ferry reviews

  • "Colonia express were excellent but Bad info from direct ferries"

    The email we received from direct ferries stated we were to check in at the port. Incorrect. We booked a hotel near the port to walk the next day but turns out we needed an 18 minute taxi to get the bus. On the map of directions given by direct ferries it took us to a place 2 blocks away from the actual place where we needed to be. With 20+ kilograms on out backs that is not close enough. Misleading info spoiled the trip however we had no issues whatsoever with colonia express. Comfy bus with plenty of leg room and a good ship. All on time and very organised.

  • "Wrong info from direct ferries"

    The email we received stated we had to check in atleast an hour and a half before our departure time. This was incorrect as the check in does not even open until one hour before departure. We arrived 2 hours before to ensure we did not miss the check in tome and were infact an hour early! When only in montevideo for a short time that hour could have been used elsewhere. Please update your info!
