We took the bus so we can have a tour around the city and know what places to go latter with more time, and what places were not worth of a new visit. When we got to Congreso, we waited for more than an hour for a new bus to hop in. If checked the webpage and it didn't say... More

We waited and waited for the bus one day (45 mins) and it never showed. Then the next day we tried again and waited for 30 mins. According to their website and the info at the stops the busses run continually and circulate every 20 minutes. At stop #0 (the beginning) we sat for at least 30 minutes. We were... More

Looks like this is the only double decker, trolley type of concept in BA. Why probably they're able to rip off tourists, crappy audio. But nice tour if you only have a few days and tickets good for 48 hours.

I was in Argentina for a week on business with a colleague. We got in on a Sunday and wanted to take in the sites and history of Buenos Aires. Someone we knew in ARG recommended Buenos Aires Yellow bus. First, while in city central we could not find any stops or signs as to where the stops were or... More

We went on the Buenos Aires Bus in February 2015. We got our ticket at the main office and were charged 370 pesos each. When we got our ticket there were 2 parts, one for 260 pesos and a second one for 110 pesos. When I questioned the second one I was told that there was a cheaper rate for... More

We took the bus and we stopped at Boca's stadium. The time table said the bus should arrive at 18:05, we got out at 17:55 to wait the bus.....Well the bus never arrived! We waited until 18:50 and nothing! We weren't alone there were about 8 more people. We had to take a taxi! It sucked! That plus the audio... More

We were mugged at one of the stops and they attempted to mug us at another one. They target tourists at the stops and use techniques like throwing coloured liquids on our clothes or dropping keys so as to distract us and grab our belongings. There should be security at the bus stops. The audio equipment on one of the... More

I think that the tour was ok. It's like in many other cities. I think that it was good with one rute so you dosent had to change busses. The tour is 24 stops and you'll get a good overview of Buenos Aires. It topk around 3,5 - 4 hours. The soundsystem is not good, like in all other major... More

Very disappointing. We had to hunt seats which had sound that worked...the commentary was uninformative and out of synch...co-ordination was bad - although in fairness the bus cannot dictate traffic conditions. Payment is difficult as only local currency is accepted. Ridiculous! Why not accept credit cards $$S, ££s, and €€s to take advantage of all the foreign tourists? Another suggestion... More

Disappointing experience from start to finish with difficulty getting tickets, finding bus stops and hearing the commentary which was either very loud or garbled. Be aware that the route map on the website is out of date. There are more informative and cheaper ways of finding out about Buenos Aires. I'd give this tour a miss.

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood 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 theater 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.
