We have taken similar tours in other cities and find it is a good way of spending the first day in town. We enjoyed being on the top deck with good views in all directions. Commentary is through individual headphones with a choice of several languages. I did not enjoy the enforced, unexpected stop at to La Boca and being... More

The tour was okay. A good intro to Buenos Aires. Beware when you buy your tickets. Board has listed the price as 170pesos but when we paid, we were told that the price is only for locals. Foreigners price is 230 pesos. We asked the staffs about this but they insisted foreigners price is different. I even commented that the... More

The first day I arrived, I took a guided tour what wasn't even a fraction of the coverage of the City Bus tour. It has reasonable hours and prices, although visitors need to be aware of the VAT paid by those who are not from Argentina. It has 25 stops spread throughout all of the city, and I always found...

I had an excellent time getting around the city on the buses. Managed to visit all the interesting places I had planned to in one day.

Great way to see the main part of the tourist attractions, and plan the rest of your stay. Three hours to take the whole trip. Buy tickets ahead of time. Brochure says you can buy on the bus. Didn't work that day. Odd 25-minute stop in La Boca. Felt a little exposed on the side street. Also, be aware when... More

This hop on hop off tour makes stops at all the highlights. They are quite punctual with their timetable at each stop, with 20-30 minute intervals between buses at each stop. There are a few private companies which are more expensive and have less options for tour hours so look for "Buenos Aires Bus" as the company name. If you... More

Waste of money. First we got the tickets and charged us 200 pesos rather than the 170 official price that we found out later on. Reason is that we bought the tickets through an agent but the agent was inside the official bus tourist information office. So be aware. Also saw people being cha4ged 230 for an extra 60 pesos...

I write this review to contrast to the amount of negative reviews listed for this city tour! We had a great experience with the city tour bus company. We arrived at a bus stop and purchased a ticket on board. We didn't bother with the online system because we were told by locals that you can just show up and... More

After booking and paying online, you still have to endure the enormous queue at their sales office. Then, they mark your ticket with an earliest time you can board! If they were tasked with organising a party in a brewery, the evening would end with lots of sober people! The company has little competition - and it shows. If they... More

I hate to write a negative review, but I want you to be aware. I spent hours trying to find the stop for this bus on two separate days. I was not successful. There are no clearly marked signs. I walked in circles and could see the bus driving by. Also, you buy your ticket on the bus and if... More
