Having read the other reviews about this less than satisfactory service, here are a few key points. If you expect to get around and see the sights in a major metropolitan area, do so on the WEEKEND. B.A. traffic is congested. This tour bus has 3, yes three lines. The yellow and red connect with JUST 25 stops!!! The circuit,... More

Having explored Buenos Aires on foot for several days, we decided to use the bus to give our feet a rest, to connect the dots and to hear some information we might have missed so far. Online it states that you just buy your ticket on the bus, however, this was not possible on the first bus that went past... More

I don't normally like to moan on here but I have little option when it comes to this tour. The routes that the company offer are good and the quickest and most thorough way to see the main parts of the city. However the positives end there. We firstly had to wait nearly an hour to buy tickets then spent... More

The routes the bus offers are great for getting around in Buenos Aires and for seeing key sites. But don't expect to learn too much about the sites while on the bus. The head phones and recordings provide very little information, are sometimes not synchronized with the route, and often didn't work at all. This quite a disappointment compared with... More

It took us 1.5 hrs to finally hop on the bus,due to long queues or simple no show up of busses, esp late afternoon, audio information was hardly ever on time with the sights and it was very expensive. If you are more than 1 person take a taxi and buy a good guide book ! Will be worth it

Honestly, ignore the bad reviews, the yellow hop-on, hop-off Buenos Aires Bus is a great (and popular) way to get to know what is a big and complex city. There are three routes, one through the centre, down to San Telmo and La Boca, another from the centre out to Palermo via La Recoleta and a third to Belgrano, China... More

The bus is supposed to go trough each bus stop every 20' but this doesn't happen at all. I waited more than 40' in one of the stops and in consequence I got late to get the last bus for the second half of the tour. They dumped me in the middle of the city. It was a waste of... More

We got on one bus and the guide took our money. Hr then informed us that the audio wasn't working and we could get off at the next stop to transfer to another bus. We queued on the street for 45 minutes. 4 buses turned up and parked and the guides did nothing. We eventually got on a bus, the... More

Horrible tour. Audio doesn't work, seat belts don't fasten. And worse of all, they dumped us (me and two small kids) on the street to "connect" at stop 12, took the empty bus away and left us there, on dangerous downtown Buenos Aires for one hour because two next buses were full. And to top the bad experience the driver... More

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
