We often take open top buses in new cities to be able to appreciate the architecture from a above street level, and to get a feel for the layout of the city and various suburbs. The buses were modern, clean and regular. However we were a little disappointed with the quality of the audio, we felt like there was too... More

We have taken a hop on, hop off bus in Paris, Barcelona, Madrid and now Buenos Aires. The one in Buenos Aires was the only disappointment out of these four cities. We purchased the tickets, which seemed very overpriced for one day, and waited almost half an hour for our bus. As soon as the door opened, the attendant told... More

Not cheap and issues on the day we did the tour. Completed the tour but felt we had missed a lot because the guide was reluctant to translate what she was saying into English so we felt slightly short changed. The headphone socket was not working where we were sat and there was no other seats available. I'm sure there... More

A good way to explore Buenos Aires. However, the price / Quality Ratio does not match the expectations. The bus was very late and some of the bus stops are not where you would expect them to be compared to the map. The explanations and music played is extremely loud and cannot be changed. The tour guide was not really... More

We decided to take the tour to get a broad overview of the city and its history. Firstly, the tour is a total rip off - even with decent content, the pricing does not align with general cost of living here. It obviously exists solely to suck in foreign dollars. The content itself is also not up to much. Between... More

The main reason I took this tour was the promise of a bottle of wine stated in numerous reviews. Imagine my horror when I discovered that this company wasn't the one they had been reviewing. No wine, big disappointment! The audio guide was poor, most of the headsets didn't work which was a big shame given how good the soundtrack... More

Certainly not up to my expectations. The first bus we boarded we sat on top - first it was hard to find a seat where the headphones would work, and then only the Spanish channel worked. The second bus, both Spanish and English worked, but the English was hard to hear. For some reason, they kept playing "Eleanor Rigby" by... More

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.

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.
