Get to know the diverse neighborhoods and multicultural heritage of Buenos Aires on this 5-hour city sightseeing tour. See all the major districts and monuments of the sprawling metropolis from onboard a comfortable air-conditioned bus, from stately Casa Rosada and Recoleta Cemetery to the historic squares of San Telmo and the colorful houses of the Caminito. After this panoramic overview, head to a renowned restaurant in the modern Puerto Madero neighborhood for a typical Argentinian lunch served up with fantastic views.
We had done this tour several years ago and it was excellent. That’s why we rebooked the same tour in order for us to familiarize ourselves with the city once again. We booked an English tour but seemed to be the only English speaking people on the bus. The result was very poor coverage in English. The guide ‘Sol’ spoke very quickly and she had no time to answer questions in English when we were outside the bus. Her voice was very distorted over the speakers on the bus, I believe because she held the microphone too close.
Like we said, we had done this tour a number of years ago. We were taken to a fabulous restaurant where we were treated to a vast array of tender cuts of meat. On this tour we were taken to a different restaurant, however it was similar in that it had a buffet and meat was served at our table. We found the meat was chewy and fatty. The best part of the meal was the ice cream at the end.
Overall, we were extremely disappointed with this tour.
