Once a lackluster cargo port, the waterfront area of Puerto Madero is now one of Buenos Aires’ most fashionable districts, teeming with upmarket restaurants and glitzy nightclubs. Marooned from the mainland by the Rio de la Plata estuary, the ...

I chose to take this tour as a way to learn more about the layout, history and culture of Buenos Aires, and get in some exercise to boot. It was a terrific decision. Our group of seven people were led by two guides around many of the interesting neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, including La Boca, Puerto Madero, Recoleta and Microcentro. Along the way we had chances to stop and sightsee/shop, were given a lot of great information about the city and it's people, and enjoyed some spectacular weather temps in the 60s and 70s Farenheit, and I took the tour near the end of August, their Winter. The guides made safety their first priority and even with the rather chaotic way in which people drive there, I didn't feel at all worried. Great way to orient oneself to the city and figure out where to spend more time later.

Totally worth it! Argentina as a country is ok but thank god for Viator tours. We were picked up on time and had a blast! The train ride was my favorite. The food was beyond amazing! It was in the rich side of Buenos Aires called Puerto Madero. Totally worth it!

This trip is a good preview of BA to allow you, if time permits, to revisit later the parts that really interest you. Our pick up was from the cruise terminal Gate 13, which is probably not a great idea as this is the main exit and at 9am in the morning is heaving with tourists and taxi touts. Our pickup at 9-30 did not arrive and we eventually found a rep. at 9-50. The minibus didn't arrive until 10.10-so not a great start!
Then it got better. The bus was air-conditioned and the young guide spoke good English.We had a half hour stop in the Plaza de Mayo to see the Presidential Palace and visit the Cathedral. We drove through the Recoleta District with its elegant buildings and famous cemetery Eva Peron et al. .We passed along the magnificent boulevards interspersed with beautiful parks and former residences of the affluent- now mainly hotels and embassies. In the area of La Boca, there were two further stops to see the Boca Juniors famous football stadium and the Caminito district with its street artists and gaily coloured former fishermen's houses. The tour finished passing by the Puerto Madero, which is the restored and gentrified former port area with its converted original warehouses complemented by modern high rise apartments. The tour finished in the shopping area- Avenida Florida. A bit poor they didn't return us to the pickup point,

The bike tour took place in a sunny warm day and our guide Bautista was extremely friendly, prepared and spoke very good English. It was nice to bike all over huge Buenos Aires, getting the first idea and understanding of the city from a complete point of view.
Mate and alfajor in La Boca, lunch break in Puerto Madero with simple but tasty choripan were a plus.
We consider the bike toour overpriced and as a matter of fact what was supposed to be a Group tour turned out to be an individual tour for my friend and myself... Which we didn't complain about at all!

Very good tour. We went by public transport which gave us an idea how the locals do it. The tour was very comprehensive, including some sights in Buenos Aires before we got the local train to San Isidro. After a tour of town we got the tourist train to Delta. We visited the markets and boat harbours before embarking on our boat trip around the delta and then back to Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires. The guide was absolutely brilliant. Best guide in over 4 weeks of travelling. Her name was Elaeana (I think that is how you spell it). Strongly recommend.

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.
