Surrounded by Le Martial mountains in Patagonia, Ushaia offers a glimpse of sea, mountains and forest at the ‘end of the world.’ Aboard your double-decker bus, depart from Maipú Avenue in Ushuaia’s city center, heading toward the Luis Pedro Fique footbridge.
Cross this narrow pass that ends at La Mission neighborhood, an area settled by Europeans at the beginning of the 20th century, and drive through districts like Brown and Solier for a glimpse of homes built by Ushuaia’s first immigrants. Hear entertaining onboard commentary about these original Fuegan families – including Bebans, Pastorizas, Cangas, Fiques, Salomons and Ramos – and observe the Patagonian town’s commercial growth since the arrival of new settlers during the 1980s.
Next, enter the naval base, a restricted area where the first public buildings like the provincial legislature and old government's house were constructed. From Gobernador Paz Street, your coach will drive to Paseo del Centenario, a panoramic point with great photo ops of the mountain chains and islands across the Beagle Channel, which is the jumping off point for Antarctica. Then, head back down to sea level to see the vessel of St Christopher and hear his story from your guide.
Your Ushuaia coach tour includes a transfer to the base of the chairlift to Le Martial Glacier, where you can stretch your legs and view the gorgeous landscape. On your return to the city center, drive through Leandro North Alem Avenue and continue past the Maritime Museum and Old Prison of Ushuaia. Your guide will point out a replica of the original lighthouse and the End of the World Museum, which exhibits part of the Fueguian past on the continent's southernmost tip. Your coach tour ends at your original departure point.

Let's face it, an hour is never enough to see Ushuaia. However, if you don't have much time, this tour does a pretty good job giving you a good glimpse of Ushuaia. There are some nice picture spot also. Be sure to book well ahead and know the exact locations and be there in advance.
This was a relaxing fun bus ride around Ushuaia. The ride was comfortable and the commentary was good.
A good way of seeing most of the interesting parts of the town and surronding areas.
It was a hard slog up the steep hills to get our ticket from the agent, but the trip was excellent with good historical commentary and took us to good viewpoints.
