It's terrible. The tour is totally uninformative. The English recording is out of sync. It talks about buildings but doesn't explain which one. More music (repeat of one song) than commentary. We were so frustrated. It takes about 3 hours. Commentary randomly cuts out...usually during the important bits you are actually interested in. Very prolonged waits at each stop. Not... More

It was raining yesterday, so I didn't feel much like walking outside but still wanted to see the city. I had done hop-on-hop-off bus tours in numerous cities (Glasgow, Edinburgh, Philadelphia, etc.) and usually found them a nice way to see the city, get acquainted with the history, and get an idea of the terrain. I thought this would be... More

A good way to get around the city and see different areas........that's where all positivity stops! Terrible scheduling-we waited 45 mins for a bus and then two came at the same time. Stopped for 15 mins at stop zero. Stopped for 20 mins near La Boca, a horrible area. This is written on the route map that it stops, but... More

Upon entering the bus we noticed it had no rooftop, eventhough it was over 30 degrees celcius, there was no shade, be aware of the tourguide, they might try to overcharge you some pesos on the true price of the bus trip, like ours tried, after objecting and pointing out this was not the price on the ticket he backed...

We payed 290 Argentinas $ per person although it was announced 170$.... We noticed that everyone on the bus payed a different price ranging from 170$ to 360$!!!!! Also it is supposed to arrive every 20 minutes at each stop, this never happened!!!!! We waited between 45 and 70 minutes in the sun!!!! The driver in one of the buses... More

We took the bus as a couple in November 2014, using it to get to Boca juniors stadium then on it again for the rest of the tour. First impressions weren't great, the price charged was not the same as the website as the latter excluded VAT - watch out for this. Once on the bus, the audio (we listened... More

The route allowed a good overview of the major sights. I enjoyed the tour and would recommend it. Not all buses were the same. On some buses you needed to pick up the ear phones as you boarded and others they were already at the seats. Not all the ear phones work. The good ones are loud enough that you... More

In a city as big and therefore unwalkable as Buenos Aires, taking a hop-on/hop-off bus seemed like the most logical and best way to be able to see the major sites of the city in a day. In general, I have had luck with these buses across major European cities, and I felt that this would be the case here... More

Having done the bus tour 3 years ago (winter off season), I hoped our poor experience recently was just an " off day " for the bus tour company. But our experience is consistent with what previous reviewers posted here. 1. The A$170 rate on the website was not given at the downtown office. We paid A$240 each. 2. Many... More

We have just returned from Argentina and used this hop on hop off bus service in Buenos Aires. Usually they are good but this is very poor. Queues to get on at popular stops are very long, the commentary either doesn't work at all or is almost useless, the staff are rude and the route is much too long taking... More
