Know More about this tour

After your cruise ship docks in the Buenos Aires port, meet your guide either in the morning or afternoon (depending on option selected) for your Tigre Delta 3-hour shore excursion. Then, head out of the city center on board a comfortable coach and ride along Costanera Avenue, parallel to the Rio de la Plata, to the town of San Isidro.

One of the most affluent communities in greater Buenos Aires since 1871, San Isidro houses mansions inhabited by aristocratic families who evacuated the city to escape the yellow fever epidemic. You'll see its Gothic cathedral, dating back to 1706, before continuing on to Tigre.

At the Puerto de Frutos, the port that connects life on the delta islands with the mainland, hop on a catamaran for a 40-minute boat cruise through the Tigre Delta's fascinating freshwater canals. Learn how the island residents live and interact with floating services, such as the water taxi and supermarket boat.

See the house and museum of former Argentinean president Sarmiento, and pass inhabited homes built on stilts in the former swamp, now developed with grass paths, before making your own way to the cruise port.
This excursion concludes within a 15-minute taxi ride to the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Buenos Aires. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

  • The tour guide was excellent with a knowledge of several languages and a knowledge of the tour and brought to our attention many details. That is why we go with a tour rather on ourselves. Her English was great.

  • Our guide Asland was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, friendly and a perfect guide. Loved driving thru some beautiful neighborhoods and the boat cruise down the Tigre River was fascinating. Loved this trip!!

  • Its was okay, but make no mistake, you dont actually get off the river barge.

  • It was a great tour we had a great time and went to a lovely market in a train station. Although it rained quite heavily it was still very enjoyable.

  • I wasn't aware that guide would be speaking in 2 languages i.e. Spanish and English during the tour on the bus. We felt it was said much less in English than in Spanish. Visual and cultural value on land was minimal. I would've prefered to only English speaking group..
