Overview

An easy day trip from Buenos Aires, the Tigre Delta is a unique suburb built around the swampy land and meandering waterways that empty from the Rio Paraná into the Rio de la Plata. Former Argentine president Domingo Sarmiento encouraged settlement in the area during the mid-1800s and lived there himself for nearly three decades.
  • Full-day or half-day tour from Buenos Aires to the Tigre Delta
  • Discover what lies outside of Buenos Aires and see another way of local life
  • Take a boat ride on the delta to see its waterfront sights, including homes on stilts
Full-Day Tour (8 hours):Make your way to central Buenos Aires, where you’ll meet your guide and board a boat for a river cruise to Tigre. Learn about the history of the delta as you glide along the Costanera Navigation Canal past Buenos Aires’ shoreline landmarks. Continue cruising along the narrower canals of the delta, where you’ll see yacht clubs, markets and the stilted homes of local residents.

When you reach the town of Tigre, climb back onto solid ground and ride a bus to Puerto de Frutos, a vibrant port that connects island dwellers to the mainland. Enjoy leisure time to explore the port on your own and have lunch at a local eatery (own expense).

Soak up the relaxed waterside ambience of Tigre’s Paseo Victoria lined with stately mansions, museums and rowing clubs. You’ll have independent time to visit one of several local museums, including the Tigre Art Museum, the Naval Museum and Museum of Mate (tickets not included).

Your full-day tour concludes with a scenic train ride back to Buenos Aires, where you’ll arrive at the Retiro station after a 1-hour ride.

Half-Day Tour (4 hours):Choose from a morning or afternoon departure, and begin your half-day tour with hotel pickup (for more distant hotels, meet your guide in central Buenos Aires). Ride on a comfortable coach along the Rio de la Plata to the charming northern suburb of San Isidro, home to an impressive cathedral and mansions built by the city’s old aristocratic families.

Continue on to Tigre, where you’ll embark on a 40-minute delta cruise. Float past stilted homes and learn how delta-dwellers access goods and services through a network of floating markets. See landmarks that line the waterways in the relaxed town of Tigre, including Sarmiento’s historic home and museum. After your tour, relax on the scenic coach ride back to Buenos Aires.

River cruise was nice. Rest of tour was very boring. Took us to a shopping area for locals i.e. furniture, light fixtures, large household items.

The tour is mainly just transportation, which you can do yourself by taking public transit. The boat ride on the Tigre is pretty disappointing. The audio commentary in English is really bad, hard to really understand what is being said. I would not recommend this tour.

My wife and I had an extra day in BA before heading home, and decided to take the half-day tour on the Tigre Delta. Even though the reviews looked all positive, I was not setting high expectations. However I have to say, both my wife and I fully enjoyed this tour! The driving tour up to the Delta was fun and informative. The Delta cruise was amazing! To see how these people live out there on the Delta, the houses / villas, the abandoned ships rusting away, ... all of it, was worth a repeat. We highly recommend it.

The trip with the boat and the train was very amazing. The guide was ok. I would put a lunch in this package.

Enjoyed the half day Tigre tour, nice to get out of the city. Our tour guide was excellent. Not really sure why we had the first stop on the way, except to use as a rest stop. Seemed a little long for what there was to see. I would have preferred more time in the town of Tigre - of course, that is on the full day tour. I certainly recommend this tour as the price is more than reasonable and it was really interesting to see another side of life in Argentina.

Great trip. Very relaxing. Knowledgeable and personable guide - Eduardo was great. Made a total change from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. Next time I would probably go on a weekend or later in the week as this was a Monday and many of the shops were closed.
The mixture of boat, bus and train was great.

This trip via Sturla was certainly worth the time and cost. Informative and relaxed. Not rushed and time for lunch and wine. The train ride gives you a different view of the local lifestyle.

Tigre Delta .... Boat ride was nice and relaxing , but town is small and Boring.... Did not tell us that the market is not open thru the Week. Even if it was. I would still not go . Go to the Street Market in Buenos Aries on Sunday if you want a good market , decent pricing , that was great

The start of the tour on the boat into the Tigre Delta was fantastic.
We did a hop on hop off in Tigre Delta city which was not very informative. Would have preferred more
free time in the city and no hop on hop off tour.
