We enjoyed the tour and would recommend it. There were a few things that could have been better. We waited for 30 min for a couple at one stop who got off and did not return. I can see 10 minutes, but 30 was too long. We stopped at a souvenir shop in Boca for 15 min that was a waste of time. Then we only had 30 minutes at Caminito where we SURE could have used those extra 45 minutes. It was not near enough time.
We got back after 6 and the Recoleta cemetery closes at 5:30. Had we known that, we would have toured the cemetery BEFORE we took the bus tour. Now we have to take another 1/2 day to go back to that area to see what we really wanted to see.
The guide was good and the bus was comfortable. I have done the hop on hop off bus and liked this much better.
Doing what: Buenos Aires Sightseeing Tour
1. The city tour was just okay. It picked us up late - over an hour later than the time we were told. It was quite hard to understand the tour guide as the microphone was very crackly, and the tour was in Spanish, Portuguese and English. We got to leave the bus at two points - 20 mins at Plaza Libertad, and 40 mins at Caminito in La Boca. I'd recommend not bothering with the city tour, and doing a walking tour elsewhere. At the end we were dropped off at one of three spots - not at the hotel! This was a bit annoying.
2. The Tango show picked us up on time. The food was okay, the service at Tango Porteno was very very good, and the show entertaining, although there was singing which was completely in Spanish. An enjoyable night. We were dropped off at the same place we had been picked up from.
3. Tigre Delta river cruise - this was the best of the three parts of this deal. We were again picked up from the hotel over an hour later than told, but our guide, Laura, was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, and her English was clear. The trip included a stop at the church at San Isidro, and then onwards to Tigre. Very cute houses and interesting background. I'd recommend this as a day trip. Again, they didn't return us to our pickup point, but Laura was helpful in finding a location to drop us off close to where we wanted to go.
