This is a great way to visit the Islands of the Delta above Buenos Aires. You travel by boat up the Plate River from Buenos Aires into the Islands, ending in Tigre, a beautiful small city only 30 minutes by train from Buenos Aires. The trip through the Islands is accompanied by narration that tells of the life in the Islands, especially the floating grocery, the local water busses, and the doctors and dentists who make regular rounds by boat.
Very interesting tour, would highly recommend doing the full day trip. Our guide spoke good English and known the history of the area.
This trip was well organized from pickup in downtown Buenos Aires to the knowledgeable tour guide and the courteous bus driver. All arrangements were exceptionally well organized and I recommend this tour.

This is a don't miss area if you have the time. We did the day trip and wound up having a private guide. She briefed us well on what we would see on the boat, which was lovely. We did a bus tour on their public loop buses and had the choice of museums. We chose the gorgeous art museum which allows for wonderful views and had very good exhibits. We went for a wonderful lunch with her and she explained things about the food and recommended the best of various other goodies which we wanted to try. We had a nice walk in the market and a ride through the town. We enjoyed the train back to BA as we saw the locals doing their commutes.
Excellent experience. Our guide, Walter, was really friendly and helpful. The boat ride to Tigre was a pleasure. Very comfortable. We really enjoyed the day and we highly recommend the tour.
The tout was great. The tour guide was awesome and very knowledgeable .
My guide Jose was wonderful. My itinerary was quite different because we stopped at a little shopping area near a train station and then the boat ride was almost two hours and ended up back in Bs As. Either way, very fun and nice to see outside of the city.
I wound up with my own personal guide, Juan. He was fabulous and so knowledgeable. It is worth the time to take a look at Tigre - it's where the Buenos Aires crowd have their weekend homes. The boat ride was so enjoyable and the train ride home was enlightening. But kudos to Juan for making my day as informative and enjoyable as could be. Definitely worth seeing while visiting Buenos Aires.
Very good but it is more than the advertised 4 hours. Would do it again!
Really informative tour.Our tour guide was Claudia, young and smart.Took a boat up the river,toured the area and took a train back with the local folk's. Very nice time!
It was terrific. What a spectacular spot to visit. Definitely worth doing while in Buenos Aires! The boat was confortable and included a very good commentary. We had a chance to explore the town near the end, and that was lovely to be able to get on and off a local bus. The tour was advertised as a full day/ 8 hours and it really was not. Also, instead of returning by boat, we were returned by train. Really quite fine with us, but we were surprised. The advantage of the train is you do arrive back sooner, but you miss the enjoyment of the boat ride! Wish we had know in advance how to arrange to option.
An 8-hour boat, bus and train tour with a personal guide for just my wife and me for a total of 110 including museum entrance seemed almost unbelievable! The first two hours sailing through the Tigre Delta were full of beautiful views of riverside houses, boats and occasional bathing beaches. Then we travelled by bus to an large market area where we bought lunch. All kinds of craftwork and local produce were on sale, and the nicest ice cream I have ever tasted. We were given a choice of museums to visit - we chose the Art Museum - and finally we returned to Buenos Aires via an hours journey in an air-conditioned train. There wasnt much walking, which my wife appreciated, and the weather was beautiful. It couldnt have been better!
An enjoyable tour with a stop at ST. Isidor and a nice trip in the tigre delta.
The guide was very good and provided lots of information.
Highly recommended as part of any visit to Buenos Aires. Very interesting and relaxing day. Very good value.
This was one of our favorite parts if the trip! The boat tour was a lot of fun and very interesting! It was a great value as well. Highly recommend!
