BEHIND THE BATTLE OF THE RIVER
Liz has made a particular study of this battle and she will arrange a special excursion for you telling the story behind the Battle of the River Plate, and escorting you in a private car or air-conditioned minibus to see the anchor, rangefinder and guns of the German pocket battleship Graf Spee.
You will see sites of interest such as the former British and German Legations, the British Residence (occupied by Mr. Eugen Millington-Drake) and visit the Maritime Museum with many relics of the battle, the cemeteries where German and British sailors are buried, the Anglican Church and monument to those who died, and take a drive to the hilltop above Montevideo where you will enjoy panoramic views of the city and see the point where the Graf Spee sank.
In the case of the Graf Spee tour, Uruguayan regulations require us to give you separate prices for the transport and for the guide. So if you decide on this tour, we will provide you with these prices, according to the length of the tour, type of transport and so forth. You will pay the transport costs directly on the day of the tour. Please use our Contact Us page to request an individualized quotation.
Please be sure that you have the appropriate medical and/or travel insurance before beginning any of our tours.
