It was an interesting experience to travel by a regular train to San Isidro, together with the locals. San Isidro is a nice town with lots of leafy trees lining its streets. Tren de la Costa it was not just what we expected, I think the name sounds more exotic then it really is. El Tigre is nice, had a stroll around, watched the boats on the river. The boat travel back to Buenos Aires Puerto Madero was nice too. The views, the holiday houses, many for sale, the surfers all contributed to a nice day.
As a minus I would mention the boat not very accommodating, a small space in the back to take pictures, a squeaky sound from the insulation accompanied us all along. Another minus was the guide not speaking English which I am sure prevented us from finding out more about the places visited.
Very relaxing afternoon. Learned many interesting fact about the Delta and also the area surrounding Buenos Aires.
Fab day out local trains and the boat ride Back was fantastic there is a fair bit of walking but very good day out
Great value for the money. They pick you up and drop off at your hotel. A long bus ride but nice to see places outside buenos aires. Boat tour was very enjoyable with an extra touch in serving snacks.
This was really enjoyable. Half day was plenty, Paula the tour guide was great, friendly and funny. It's a nice change from staying in BA. Only annoyance was a random guy who videoed the tour and then wanted to sell the video + photos. I found it intrusive that he was filming us the entire time
It was fun. I would highly recommend it if you like to be on the water.
Great trip and well organised. The only awkward bit is after booking on line the e mail invites you to phone locally to arrange transport pick up not easy as I don't speak Spanish and the guy didn't speak English, why could this not be done on line?
The local tour agent is responsive, has english-speaking agents on the phone, and hotel pick-up is hassle-free and on time. The tour guide can speak in excellent English and Spanish.
The tour itself is highly-recommended, as it show-cases different facets of life and views of the river delta, that is distinct from the main Buenos Aires city.
Very interesting half day. We didn't go on the train but were transported by a comfortable coach. Good guide and nice river trip.
The tour is a great way to see more of Argentina. Nice, relaxing day. Lunch was actually good.
Great day trip outside of Buenos Aires. The tour included transport, train ride and boat ride. It was very nice.
Worth a tour as by ourselves we would have probably not ventured out of the city. Great value for the price.
Well informed guide. The tour was well planned out with the transitions going smoothly. The Tigre by boat was peaceful and lovely.
We had a very good tour. The pick up from our hotel was very efficient and the tour guides throughout the tour were very friendly and informative. I would always be pleased to book another tour with Viator.
This was a very pleasant trip which got us away from the city center. It was not desperately exciting, but nevertheless it was interesting and shows a different part of Buenos Aires. Lunch at the end of the tour at a very smart restaurant on the waterfront in. We were shown to individual tables and it was a fantastic buffet including huge amounts of barbecued meats, pasta, and fish. This was an absolutely unbelievable value included in this tour ticket, which was already a good value.
As with all the excursions with during our stay in BA, we never got confirmation of them picking us up at our hotel and the time. So we prayed that they would (and they did) arrive at the stated time on the voucher.
Note from Viator: We always recommend for you to reconfirm your reservation 24 hours ahead of time. Your Viator Voucher includes the local contact information for the operator. So there's no need for you to worry! Simply call 24 hours ahead of time to reconfirm. Happy travels.
Not quite what I expected but we found it very interesting all the same. I had expected the delta islands to be inhabited by wildlife rather than humans, but it was interesting to discover that they were quite populated with homes and that the residents' essential mode of transport was boat rather than car.
Our guide was helpful, the tour was interesting, and the lunch was delicious.
