What You Can Expect

Buenos Aires Shore Excursion: Half-Day Tour to Tigre Delta

Tigre Delta

After disembarking from your cruise ship at the port in Buenos Aires, meet your local guide in the morning or the afternoon, depending on your preference. Board a comfortable coach heading out of the city center along Costanera Avenue, bound for San Isidro and the Tigre River Delta.

Visit San Isidro, the town where many wealthy Argentine families fled during the yellow fever epidemic in the 1800s. Its spectacular Gothic cathedral dates back to 1706. Continue on to Tigre, stepping aboard a comfortable catamaran for a 40-minute boat ride departing from the Puerto de Frutas. As you cruise, learn from your guide how local residents conduct their lives on the water.

Visit the home of former Argentine president Domingo Sarmiento and the museum dedicated to his life. See homes built on stilts atop what was once a swamp, but has now been developed into a neighborhood with grass footpaths. View the floating supermarket and the plethora of water taxis, keys to daily life in this town of waterways.

Conclude your excursion by finding your own way back to the cruise port, just a 15-minute taxi ride away (own expense). Make sure you have plenty of time to get back to the port before your ship departs, as this excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

The tour guide was excellent with a knowledge of several languages and a knowledge of the tour and brought to our attention many details. That is why we go with a tour rather on ourselves. Her English was great.

It was a great tour we had a great time and went to a lovely market in a train station. Although it rained quite heavily it was still very enjoyable.

Its was okay, but make no mistake, you dont actually get off the river barge.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2014

I wasn't aware that guide would be speaking in 2 languages i.e. Spanish and English during the tour on the bus. We felt it was said much less in English than in Spanish. Visual and cultural value on land was minimal. I would've prefered to only English speaking group..
