3 parts to this tour.
The morning - Tigre delta river cruise - a total YUCK! Spent a lot of time waiting around to be told river level was too low but they will put us on another boat with an equal experience. Turns out, it was overcrowded - no place for everyone to sit even. We had to sit under hot sun for the whole trip - staring at the crowd standing in front of us. No guide talking so no idea what we were seeing. Guide was apologetic saying it was not her fault but I reminded her she worked for that company. What a waste of a valuable day!
Afternoon - city cruise. Good tour but poor planning. The morning finished by dropping off everyone who only did the morning taking 1 hour. Then another hour picking up those for the afternoon. Not given any option to stop for lunch. Managed to grab a pastry at the first 15 min stop. The rest of city tour was decent - route was cut short because of bad traffic. La Boca was truly amazing - but we were only given 20 mins there. We plan to spend a whole day there again. We took a cab home as we headed north because it was already 6 and needed to be ready for night pick up.
Night - The tango show was wonderful and we enjoyed dinner. We were tired after spending so much time in the sun and so much time dropping and picking people up. At least there was a decent ending to the otherwise awful day.
When you have little time to explore the city, this tour covers pretty much everything. The city sightseeing covered so much of the city we would not have seen, especially La Boca and Caminito Street. The dinner and tango show at Cafe de los Angelitos was excellent, a lovely meal and evening to finish our day. The Tigre Delta was just a relaxing tour but certainly not a very scenic cruise. I could have done without it. But it rounded out our entire day.
The tour was wonderful and everything went as advertised. We learned so much about the city's history and racist culture in the way that they murdered the black slaves and indigenous people in order to sanitize the country. The Flamingo dinner was wonderful and high energy. The Tigre Delta River Cruise was so relaxing and beautiful.
The city sightseeing tour, if you passed something to bad you didn't hear about it. They only told you when you asked what is that bldg, the only stop was a trinket shop also a potty break, or tea. The Tigre Delta River Cruise, don't go, waste of time, not what it was written up as. Tango show was good, needed more tango, but he food was good.
This was a crazy day. Individually, each of the tours was fine, BUT too much to do in one day. We had no time for lunch, and it would have been better to separate this into two days. One for the city sightseeing tour and really the hop on hop off bus would have been better and then a second day for the Tigre Delta River Cruise and tango show. Or put the tango show with the city tour. The day was just too packed, and seemed way to rushed. Also, we spent a lot of time on the bus, and not enough time at the various venues. I probably should have paid more attention to the description and signed up for a walking tour of the city and a tango show, and then the river cruise separately.
1. Tigre Delta River Cruise was nice but there is nothing special. I would recommend it to people who saw everything in BA and not as a priority. You can take a train and the cruise itself just 7 if purchased in Tigre. So while it was nice, was not too much value for me. Guide was good.
2. City tour was terrible. The whole tour is from inside the bus. Two stops in 3 hrs 15-20 min each. Instead of guided walk during the stop - just walk where you want but be on the bus in 20 min? Very basic information was shared during the tour.
3. Tango part was very good, however food was not as expected. Show was at El Querandi.
Overall, If doing it again, I would skip the cruise, get a different city tour and see tango without after dinner
This tour consisted of three parts. We were picked up at our hotel in the morning for the Tigre Delta River Tour, with one stop along the way to see a museum. We had a chance to pick up lunch own expense prior to boarding the boat. The River Tour was interesting. After that, we were dropped off at another hotel to board a different bus for the afternoon portion of the city tour with a different guide. We visited Palermo, Recoleta including Recoleta Cemetery, San Telmo and La Boca. Stops included Mayo Square/ Cathedral and the market at La Boca. Both morning and afternoon guides were very good. The stop at the Cemetery was quite rushed - largely consisted of a walk to Eva Perron's mausoleum. To be fair, we saw a lot considering the traffic is heavy and slows down the progress from one stop to another.
After the city Tour, we were dropped off back at our hotel about 6:00 and picked up again later for dinner and Tango Show at Portenos. The show was very well done.
Although it was a long day, it seemed fairly relaxed and the break before supper gave us a chance to re-charge for the evening dinner and tango show. As we only had one day in Buenos Aires, this tour provided the best way to see as much as possible.
This was a full fun day, with a knowledgeable and personable guide for the Tigre Delta River Cruise and the City Sightseeing Tour, and lovely dinner and show at the end.
Tour: A good overview of the city different neighborhoods and sites, to know what to return to later. We were a group of about 12 in a small van to move through the city. There were only a couple of fairly short stops on the tour part though so most of the sightseeing was done from the van which I wasn't quite expecting. We stopped at Plaza de Mayo which was totally, completely under construction - not the tour's fault but disappointing. Not sure what they could have done, since this is the 1 tour spot to go to. I was glad to have gone there but maybe would have liked a stop in a different location or at least been able to go into the pink house needed a ticket. We also stopped at El Caminito, La Boca which was interesting and fun and nice to do as part of a tour since we understood the neighborhood could be dodgy on our own.
Tigre River: Nice to spend an hour outside on a boat learning about and exploring this fascinating river neighborhood. The tour part was a recording, good information but moved quickly. I'm sure I would not have found my way to the Tigre on my own, so it was nice to learn about this area. I would have liked time to buy a souvenir afterward. Instead we stopped at Plazoleta Obispo Aguirre on the way, saw a lovely church with an artisan market outside, which was fine.
Tango show with dinner: The tango show I paid for was not available on the night and I had the less expensive one Tango Porteno substituted since I could not switch nights. I guess I could have pursued a partial refund, but I was just glad to get a tango show in. I did not know what to expect so was surprised to see it was a play told in tango dance. Well done and enjoyable. The meal was fine but I don't eat red meat so could only choose the pasta. I could have had the chicken but it had bacon in it! Nice to have a fancy night out after a long day.
Be aware that the tour does not go back to the hotel - pick-up only is included - so you have to find your way back from where they drop you. I didn't mind walking after a day sitting in the van so it was OK for me, especially as I walked back through the Saturday artisan market at Plaza Francia. But it was a hot humid day so not suitable for everyone to walk. We also did not have enough time to get something to eat between the river cruise in the morning and tour in the afternoon. They did give us maybe 10 minutes to buy something but there wasn't really anything available in 10 minutes so the bus was held up while a little café scrambled to fill our orders. Would have been good for the tour to provide a bag lunch or take us to market with over the counter food for purchase. We were taken back to our hotels after the tango show though which ended at 11:30 pm.
I might suggest giving us a place to meet at for the start instead of hotel pick-up because that seemed to take a lot of time that could have spent at stops on the tour instead.
