Overall rating

4.5 / 5

by far the boat ride is the best. everything was great and I cannot complain anything about this tour....what only pisses me off is that same company and same tour all of it with other ppl that were with us paid less than 25% of the price. so be carefull .. price is definitely not more than 50 euro from what Argentinans have told us.

This tour was exceptional. It said this was a self-guided tour but there was an english speaking guide who was very friendly and knowledgeable. The last mile and half of the trek was very tedious and difficult but it was worth the climb. The view at the summit was breathtaking.

Driver was excellent- waited for us to get through customs and get luggage. Only issue was that I did enter flight arrival time as pick up time when it would obviously take 1 hour and was unable to modify pick up time on website- no response to emails.

Our driver was waiting for us at the meeting point and was friendly. She had minimal English, but enough to get by. She was a good driver and navigated the traffic with ease.

Santiago var kunnskapsrik og svært god til å formidle! hadde 2 interessante og lærerike timer i La Boca!
