Picked up from the hotel on time. Guide was informative on the journey to the port. Sit on the left hand side of the boat, as for the first hour the views are of the coastline. Once the boat gets into the delta the scenery changes, wasn't expecting so many houses and such a community. All very interesting. The trip states that 'snacks' are provided, this consisted of a small coffee and a small pre pack muffin. Boat trip takes about 2 hours. In Tigre we were given about an hour to wander around the markets, but very little of interest to see or buy. There were a few places to eat.

The boat ride was great and a good way to see the tiger. However I find it a shame that we were not able to visit Tiger on foot (we had 45 min to see the Puerto de Fruitos where there is nothing really to see .... I would have preferred to see the center and its architecture )

With the premium cruise we are much less numerous so better communication with our guide. Navigating the delta canals is a unique experience. The boat is fairly new. We serve coffee and a piece of cake. The only catch is that we are not the only group. The other guides encroach a little on the other groups. Often we could no longer hear comments on the speakers.
