    We enjoyed the boat ride in Tigre, including the narration, and it gives you an experience of a very different part of Buenos Aires. It takes a while to get there and back, and we had already seen most of the landmarks we passed early on. They did a good job of picking people up, but at the end of it, you have to get back to where you started. This limits its usefulness for cruise travelers. We were able to make it back to the ship, but lack of good metro or bus service to the port necessitates a taxi ride to get back there and eliminates any plans you might make for doing other things after the tour. Would be a better choice for non-cruisers.

    Nice excursion to some surrounding areas of Buenos Aires. Enjoyed the route, the narration of our very knowledgeable and personable guide, Sol, and the pace of the afternoon. The Tigre Delta area is quite unique and the one hour boat tour around a few of the islands was very pleasant and interesting. Additionally, Sol said they could drop us off anywhere in the city on our return. It was our last day and we wanted to see El Ateneo, so we were dropped off a few blocks from there. Great experience!

    The tour wasn’t as described. We went straight to the boat. It was not a catamaran. Just an old boat and very crowded, hot, dirty, and difficult to see anything. Then we took a short tour of San Isidro. If we had gone in the order described, we would have ended at the boat and we would have stayed in that area for a while. Then made our own way back on the train. We were supposed to take the train back which didn’t happen because we had the rest of the tour after the boat. Do it on your own.

    The guide was difficult to understand. It seemed that she spoke much, much more in Spanish than in English. I do not believe she translated everything she said in Spanish into English. The boat ride was good, but not very informative. Overall, the tour was not very interesting.

    Got picked up at 2.20, clean van and pleasant. It took an hour to pick up the other guests from 3 other different hotels. It would have been a perfect occasion for our guide to talk to us and tell us what we were driving by, but no commentary only started when we were all on board. Spanish first, English second then Portuguese. My Spanish is not that good but I could hear that the English translation was only a part of what had been said in Spanish. Why? Poor girl I felt sorry for the little training she had obviously been given.
    On arrival at Tigre we stopped for 45 minutes at the mercado de frutos which is in my opinion a terrible market.
    The two hour cruise was very good with good commentary.
    The cruise finished in Puerto Madero and we got a choice of making our own way back to the hotel or been dropped of at Obelisco.

    Pick up at hotel on time highly unusual in this very busy city. Took the scenic route with a stop in a picturesque town. The boat tour was about an hour with commentary in at least 3 languages.
    It was absolutely worth while

    Half day bus tour with a 1 hour cruise of the delta. Well organized with hotel pick up and return to the city centre as scheduled and the cruise boat was waiting when we arrived in Tigre. Unfortunately the delta is not that interesting. All the original fruit farms have been replaced by weekend or vacation homes and there’s not really much to see. There’s better ways to spend an afternoon in Buenos Aires.

    We did the full day “tour”, but in retrospect should have done a half day or skipped Tigre delta altogether. The tour just includes your boat ticket (nice boat ride), your bus ticket within Tigre (nothing to see), and your “train” ticket back (just a lite rail, no view of anything interesting. Had 90 min to spend at Tigre market but by the time we finished lunch there was no time left. The tour guide helped us get from point A to point B but didn’t provide much additional info about the places we were visiting. Could easily do this half day trip on your own by buying the boat ticket and buying the return lite rail train ticket. No need to book a “tour”.

    Fine one day trip. It was fine. Nothing else to report except frustration will need for 100 characters to complete .

  • 21-Dec-2018

    Pick up at selected hotel on time, nice trip to Tigre. Maybe a 5 min stop in San Isidro just to take a picture would be great. The guide was repeating same things in Spanish Portuguese and English.. Amazing!!!
