We have been on MANY VIATOR tours. This was horrible with a fast talking tour director (Sol) who spoke Spanish quickly and reverted to English and back & forth with NO possibility of understanding her. She was rude & uninterested in her clients. We truly SHOULD be reimbursed because we received no knowledge of our sights! AWFUL! Al & Mj Walburg

Dear Alvin Walburg, We are sorry to read that the tour didn’t meet your expectations. The sightseeing tour you booked is in regular, the guides begin their explanation in Spanish and then continue in English. We regret the misunderstanding at the time of booking, as you claimed that the tour was in two languages and not only in English. The guide who made the excursion is a graduate guide, with experience. However, we take this feedback and forward it to Sol as an opportunity to improve our services. We apologize if it wasn't clear enough. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it helps us to improve our services. Kind regards, Tangol Travel Agency

Interesting tour, but would have been better if the tour guide didn't gabble her words in English.

The tour guide was very nice, but unfortunately the tour was in three languages, English, Spanish and Portuguese, so she had to speak really quickly, which made her very difficult to understand in English. The bus was late getting to our hotel to pick us up, and then didn't drop us off at the hotel afterwards, but we didn't have far to walk back. We had three stops where we could walk around on our own. The last stop was for 45 minutes, near some very tacky souvenir shops. The time would have been better spent at the other 2 stops and taking us back to the hotel afterwards. We only really needed 10 minutes to buy souvenirs. At the other two stops we were just left on our own to look around. It would have been better if the guide had come with us, and explained what the buildings were, we were looking at. At the cemetery we were just pointed to the entrance. Some of the people on the tour didn't even understand where to go so we had been to the cemetery earlier, we had to point them in the right direction. It would have been better of the guide had come to show them the entrance, and explained more about the cemetery.

Dear Mary Waterhouse, We are sorry to hear that the tour did not meet all your expectations. The sightseeing tour you booked is in regular, the guides begin their explanation in Spanish and then continue in English. Usually, excluding the private tours, the pick-ups are made from centrally located hotels and the drop-off takes at the city center (drop-off at hotels not included). The tour booked does not include the entrance to Recoleta Cemetery; we just pass by the neighborhood to see, from the bus, the most important highlights. All this information is published and specified on the website. We are glad to know that the tour guide and the driver did a good job and were wonderful with you. Thank you for your review, it always helps us to improve our services. Kind regards, Tangol Travel Agency

Day tour, never took place due to organisers poor management and lack of customer service. We arrived at location early, doors closed, guides inside, then to be told we were late, and asked to meet at new location some 40 minutes walk away. Very poor attitide, not worth the cost.

Dear traveler, We're sorry about what happened. It is likely that you couldn't be able to meet your guide. When the guide looked for you you were waiting in front of the office and not at the door. We regret that you had to move to another location to meet the bus. Thank you for your review, it always helps us to improve our services. Kind regards, Tangol Travel Agency

We only had a short time in Buenos Aires so this tour was perfect. It took us to all the most important sights with enough time to look around La Bocca. At the end of the tour we were asked if there was anywhere on the route we would like to be dropped off, so asked for near the Cemetery so that we could look around at our leisure.

A quick overview
Rae B
, Jun 2018
It was a quick overview of some of the most visited areas of the city, but you could only get down to see two of the areas and for only 1/2 hour. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable but there was nothing outstanding about the tour. We were supposed to finish the tour in Recoleta near the cemetery but instead we were told that the bus would drop us off near the center. If I had known that I would have seen the cemetery on my own but instead waited to see it that day, which didn't happen.

Dear Rae! As you mention, this tour offers a panoramic view of the city by bus. The tour booked does not include the entrance to Recoleta Cemetery; we just pass by the neighborhood to see, from the bus, the most important highlights. We apologize if it wasn't clear enough. We are pleased to know that you enjoyed the knowledge of our guide. Your words make us very happy. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it helps us to improve our services.
