It's all been said before - audio cuts out halfway through explaining facts, the commentator does not know left from right. We went expecting a price of $260 Pesos as per the website, but it was $335 Pesos with two "free" bottles of wine..... Receipt still said $260 per person..... then it was one hour until our bus. My advice... More

I'm from Buenos Aires, lived here for 12 years and decided to take a friend visiting from Wales to this activity. To start after a couple of blocks into the route we noticed the sound was being cut before the end of the phrase (in english at least). For instance, passing by the Obelisco it was supposed to mention 4... More

Useless in not understandable comments.. The bus for the second tour never came.. well , the company is clearly not... More

Recently a group of me and several of my friends went on this trip. It was expensive and seemed to show a lot of sites that were hardly tourist attractions (driving under a motorway and identifying what this was is a prime example of this). We actually disliked it so much that we didn't finish it although I've given it... More

Great tour - took about 3,5 hours. Make sure if you are going in June July to Dress up warm, because it is an open bus and it is not preferred when you are inside. We made a stop in boca for 30 minutes to get some coffee at an cafe.

You can get a 48 hours ticket, and that would give you enough time to see everything with no rush. The seats can be a bit uncomfortable if you seat down for a long journey. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

My two teens, husband and I took this bus tour (hop on hop off). We bought our tickets at a kiosk in Recoletta opposite the cemetery. There was some confusion because someone had told us that they bought their tickets on board but the bus conductor insisted that we buy the ticket from the kiosk which is colored yellow like...

Perhaps one of the best ways to catch a glimpse of such an expansive city like Buenos Aires. The good thing about the hop-on hop-off tours is that it affords the opportunity to visit sites you would otherwise not consider or even think about. Provides an opportunity to get off an explore the areas of interest and then catch another... More

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

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.
