Like La Boca, the central barrio of San Telmo is one of Buenos Aires’ tango haunts. Formerly an up-market residential area, the area’s crumbling mansions and atmosphere of faded glory form the perfect backdrop for the city’s artists and ...

We loved this tour! A wonderful way to see La Boca, San Telmo, Puerto Madero, Costanera del Sur, and Plaza de Mayo. Our guide Valentina was very friendly and knowledgeable, and spoke excellent English. Highly recommended!

This package was a great value with all three events. The Delta River cruise was very informative. It was great to see a part of Buenos Aires that we wouldn't normally get to see on our own as was in an entirely different part of town that is not easily accessible. Our guide. Meli/Melissa, was fantastic! She had great knowledge about the city, the history and had a great personality! The second part of the tour, the city tour, was not worth talking about, the guide had very little Englishalthough we SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED ENGLISH TOUR GUIDE. She did the tour in Spanish and by the time she got to say it in English we had already PASSED the sight she was telling us about so we MISSED IT! The biggest disappointment on this tour was NOT getting to STOP and explore any of the neighborhoods they listed San Telmo, Palermo and Recoleta. We just DROVE through them. The tour guide in her limited English, told us the RECOLETA CEMETERY was something we MUST SEE!! Another disappointment was that we were NOT getting dropped back off after this part of the tour, to the same hotel in Recoleta that was prearranged in our tour for pick up and drop off. They were going to drop us off in Palermo which was NO WHERE NEAR where we needed to be and were familiar with. We had to convince them to drop us back at the Recoleta hotel PLUS HAD TO TIP THEM EXTRA for doing us a favor for going out of their way to take us back to the hotel pick up and drop off point. There were 7 of us in my group! The Tango dinner show was GREAT! The food, the fantastic entertainment was the highlight of the day! Please be aware of the communication between the local tourgrey line tours that Viator arranges your tour with in Buenos Aires. We never got a welcome package and there was confusion with the days tours. All we knew was the pick up points. Also we got picked up and the tour guide had in her notes that we were in a SPANISH SPEAKING TOUR. Luckily, for us, she had a great command of English! THANK YOU MELISSA!!

This bike tour of San Telmo and La Boca was everything I had hoped it to be ... a casual cycle through two of Buenos Aires most popular neighbourhoods. As it turned out, I was the only one on the tour so had the guide to myself. The guide was on time and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour.

The bike ride is definitely not for beginners as you will be cycling on uneven, pebbly roads and among traffic most of the time. It was a pity that my friend had to back out from the tour as she is only a beginner cyclist. Nonetheless, I continued with a solo tour with my guide Sebestian and got to zip through an ecological reserve, parks, the port area, La Boca (keep ur cameras) and San Telmo. Exhilarating and a great work out ;)

We are so glad we did the bike tour in Buenos Aires. What a great way to see the city. You must be at least a little athletic because you do have to maneuver pretty well through traffic and a climb up at the end. It was a beautiful day and our guide was excellent. We kind of felt like locals riding our bikes through the city. At the end of our bike ride we ate pizza outdoors in a San Telmo square very close to the drop off spot and we got to see some tango while we ate. Will definitely do it again if I go back to Buenos Aires and explore the other neighborhoods.

I wasn't all that impressed with this tour mainly because it was me and some other people that the guide had the previous day. He catered to what they wanted to see with the tour which was everything I did on my own the day before. It was supposed to be something entirely different than what was delivered. Because they were going to La Boca and I had been there the day before, he cut me loose at the San Telmo market. This particular guide was speed walking, so I'd be prepared to walk at a brisk pace. Otherwise it was informative enough for me.
