Here you will make your first five-minute stop next to the Floralis Generica, a steel and aluminum sculpture. Afterwards you will take a half-hour tour of Plaza Recoleta where the Recoleta Cemetery and Pilar Church are located. Pass the Teatro Colón and the Obelisk until you reach your third stop, the Plaza de Mayo, where the city was founded in 1580. Admire the Casa Rosada, the Cabildo, and the Metropolitan Cathedral for about 20 minutes. Breathe the air of tango in its birthplace, the San Telmo neighborhood. You will also visit the neighborhoods of La Boca, where one of the most famous stadiums in the world, La Bombonera, is located.

          Disappointing Transfer Service
          I had a very disappointing experience with this transfer service from Bariloche to my hotel. Despite booking in advance, the transfer did not show up, leaving me stranded at the airport for over an hour. It was extremely difficult to find another transfer at the last minute, and I ended up having to pay double the expected cost. This situation caused a lot of unnecessary stress and inconvenience. I would not recommend this service to anyone, as their reliability is highly questionable.

          A most incredible night!
          One of the most spectacular shows we've ever seen! The Black Tango absolutely nailed it... unbelievable singing, dancing, music, magic, some tasteful cabaret, and to top it off the food was out of this world! The people who put this show on are truly athletes and one big family (even the driver who picked us up lives at the location)! We loved this show, but heads up that it's a bit risqué. while it's an incredible option for a date night, definitely don't bring the kids lol

          It was a very dissapointing experience. It started with museum river plate an a look inside the stadium. But no dressing room an other sides. Than the boca museum. An just when we thought to go inside the stadium ,the guide says where can we drop you. I was very suprised. I said what do you mean, are we not going into the stadium? O sorry i did not tell you but the stadium is closed. We paid the whole price. We are very dissapointing and angry about it. This is very bad.

          A breathtaking tango show
          The tango show was a stunning display of passion and precision. A breathtaking evening. The dancers delivered a top-notch performance, their skill and connection turning every step into a captivating narrative. Their precision and intensity brought the audience an unforgettable experience, truly a spellbinding evening.

          Absolute waste of money.
          They didn’t recognise the viator ticket. Gave me an express tour! All of 15 minutes sitting on the first tear up. That was it! Waste of money.

          Pick up and drop off at hotel was very good. Before I left the US I confirmed with Viator support desk that I had transfer back to the airport. We even discussed and booked a pick uptime at the hotel for transport back to airport. Upon arrival I spoke with Viator in Buenos Aires and they confirmed that my purchase was only airport to hotel and no return. I spent about an hour with Viator support verifying all my bookings do not understand how this happened.

          Find a better tour.
          The tour was mostly Spanish, with English added on. So much of our time was spent standing and sitting around. The tour bus was air conditioned and comfortable and the guide friendly. There were two bathroom breaks.

          Interesting tour.
          Very nice, well run tour of an area that was new to me. The boat ride through the rivers and the island communities was very interesting. The visit to the fruit port e Was not a highlight. Very little was open.

          Don't recommend
          Contact person at airport as arranged, but there was no driver. And still no driver. We waited about an hour. Finally a driver. We paid to be picked up, not hang around the airport after a 12 hour flight. If this how they do business, find an alternative.

          Good experience
          I booked the shared taxi through Get Your Guide. Everything worked perfectly. I missed my original time slot but they put me in the next taxi one hour later. I only shared the car with one other person, which was lucky because this way I got a quick first view of Buenos Aires. They left me at the agreed hotel in Recoleta and I walked the rest to my address in Palermo. This was the only drawback, that they don't drive to Palermo. Otherwise everything was fine.

          Not practical!!
          We have traveled all over the world and have used other hop on hop off buses and this particular company is not good. To start with the ticket office closed with no notice to where they move to or anything. We walked around asking for their office and could not find it. we were told is a big yellow sign ( the lady at hotel said ÿou cant miss it"). We had to buy the tickets through a third party travel place after asking the business around who told us they closed without notice. The stops are not well labeled (hard to see), the map with the stops are not accurate and you spend. a lot of time looking for them and asking around. This is very time-consuming because the distances of the stops are very far from each other. On one of the buses we went on the audio was not working and you could not hear the announcements. We had to change buses which caused more delays. The buses run from 0900-1700. The duration of the ticket is for 24 hrs from the time when you go on the first time. NOT PRACTICAL!!! also you have to take into consideration the traffic in BA. When we complained to the staff on the bus he told us to go to another office to place an official complaint. (the bus did not stop there). I am fluent in Spanish and I could not imagine what it was like for others that did not speak the language. We ended up using Uber for the rest of our trip which is super cheap ( did not know that Uber was allowed in BA initially).

          Great routes
          We got the two day pass, which was quite reasonably priced, and made good use of it. They have three great routes, which we did the first day back to back, and allowed us to see where we wanted to go back to the second day to spend time. The buses were clean,with shaded cover on top (some have full cover, others are half air conditioned on top). They have a mix. Some of the buses are older, and not all of the audio systems work, but it wasn’t so busy we couldn’t find a seat that did work. They have a number of different languages, so it should work for everyone.
