What people are saying about Buenos Aires
Great native guide with good English but passion for her city and its history. The three stops at Plaza de Mayo, La Boca and Recoleta Cemetery were short but enough to get to see other nearby sights and were well narrated. Van was quite comfortable, pickup was early, our group of 9 was a comfortable size. Guide did a great job of pointing out sites in the city as we traveled from place to place giving detailed histories. Well worth the time and the price--actually a bargain well worth it.
We really enjoyed the day out with Sophia, who was an excellent guide and gave us a lot of background and information that we would not otherwise have known. What we didn't realize was that the tour included a bus to the boat and then the boat back. That wasn't clear in the description of the tour. Lovely trip on the bus and the boat and the restaurant location for lunch was fabulous. Our only comments are about the boat: - there were no drinks available to purchase and had we known this, we would have purchased something prior to going on board. (Two hours without any cold water on a hot day was not good). The second point was the really dreadful voice over for the English description of the river trip. Suggestion: write a script in "real" English and get someone who knows how to speak English to do the voice over!
We did the South tour of Buenos Aires through parts of the city I probably would never have visited had it not been for the bike tour. The bikes are relatively slow and heavy, but perfect for a flat ride through the streets and the Eco park. If you like to cycle, I would highly recommend the tour.
We thought the tour was great - the only suggestion I would make is it would have been nice to stop at the graveyard as well. The hotel pickup was good, friendly staff & comfortable bus ride.
Wonderful dancing from a professional company accompanied by an excellent group of musicians. Meal good too - though the VERY large steak best me! Highly recommend this as a must -see.
