I wish I'd read the reviews first. I had a day to kill in Buenos Aires and thought this would be a good way to do it. Firstly, unbelievably expensive- about $30, far more than equivalent trips I've done in other cities. The commentary very poor - mainly music, but when some commentary did occur, didn't always tie in well... More

The three routes inter change so it makes it easy to see most of the sights. We just got the 24hour ticket which was ample of time for us to but they also have a 48hour ticket if needed. The commentary was ok, but it would have been helpful if they had told us what channel for the English !... More

I am puzzled at the mixed reviews... we bought a ticket from STOP number one ( nearest to our hotel). They claimed that the cc machine did not work well?!?! Had to pay cash, not cheap! About $34 pp. Few people on the tour, we sat on top on a sunny day. The audio was fine, the gentlemen on the... More

Average bus tour of the city. We did hop off a couple of times to explore. Next bus came about 20 minutes later. Audio worked OK on all the buses we used. Never had a problem getting on a bus because it was full. Open air (sometimes with a canopy above) upstairs, air conditioned downstairs. Might be considered a bit... More

the audio system did not work in all the buses we took. at the stop La Bombonera (blue line) we waited for more than one hour (instead of 20' sched) - no explanations were given, no excuses..... it ruined our timing Very expensive (+/- 30USD) for a very poor experience. Recommend to avoid absolutely

Extremely disappointing considering we paid for 2 days and could not force ourselves to use this system for Day 2! Here is why: 1. Staff were unbelievably rude, 2. 80 percent music and 20 percent commentary which was not synchronized with locations and voices were unclear. 3. Tried three different seats before one earphone sort of worked! 4. Bus sometimes... More

Can't believe that the bus was so bad, seems like it would be hard to go wrong with such a simple concept! Bus took at least 30mins to arrive which for such a large city is very poor. Signage says you can buy tickets on board, apparently not the case. We were rudely told (almost like we didn't exist) that... More

We waited 20 minutes for a bus to come, on its arrival we asked if we could buy tickets as it said so on the sign. The driver spoke no English (for a tour bus probably better if they can speak the most spoken language in the world). Then pointed at a lady at the back who abruptly came up... More

Sorry to have to agree what so many others say here - commentary was not synchronized with the pace of the tour so you were being told to look at things that were not there, the English on the tape was hard to understand and sound quality was poor, the music that filled much of the time on the bus...

Our first mission was to find a seat where you could actually plug your headphones into a box that worked, we had 5 goes. The commentary was very poor and repeatedly went off. Very annoying music on a loop in between speaking for 3 hours! Sounded like Inspector Clouseau was giving commentary. Screw sticking right through the back of our... More

Staying in San Nicolas

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.
