They enjoy a monopoly, and they make you feel like there is no risk for them to loose it. To begin with, the first stop is not on Roque Saenz Peña and Florida, as stated in their website, but rather a block and a half away (on RSP between Maipú and Esmeralda, number 700 something...). I was traveling with two... More

BA is a big city so we thought this would be a good way to get around to the different areas and obtain some history. Unfortunately, many of the headphones and headphone sockets did not work, and the commentary would cut ou half way through a sentence and move onto the next section, leaving you wondering how the sentence ended!...

Dear fellow travelers Touring new cities is fun. Typically bus tours are a quick and easy start to discover and get a first glimpse. Well, in the case of Buenos Aires Bus we were quite annoyed and warn you. Although they advertise that the busses run until 22:00 (in summer) we were not let on nearly empty buses at 19:00... More

The bus route is a long one, over 3 hours, but worth it to get a good idea of the city. It is such a large city this helps to work out your sightseeing plans. We did the complete route to re visit some places and see new ones. It was very busy and at times people were left at... More

The bad and the good: the negatives: The buses don't run on schedule. The audio is not always in sync with what you are looking at. To get English feed we had to plug into the Chinese outlet-but not on every bus, just one. The guide often makes announcements in Spanish over the headsets so you can't hear the commentary.... More

Where to start... I will try to summarize: I've been on many hop on - hop off buses and this has been the worst by far! Tickets on the bus are 350pesos (cash only), there's a discount if you buy them online but of course the website wasn't working. The website and bus stops show the schedule which starts at... More

The purpose of taking a tour bus is to hear about the important places in the city. The audio on this tour was terrible, cutting out mid-sentence all the time. When we brought this to the attention of the tour guide he said, "Yeah, we have trouble with the audio on this bus." WHAT? Fix it! You could have a... More

We've been on these types of buses in many countries, this was the worst and most expensive one. Having said that, it still a good way to see all the sights. Yes, not all the headsets work, the audio is too quiet at times and I still don't know why they play Eleanor Rigby so often. They don't take card... More

Even though there is a long line to wait, the bus does tour the whole city, south to north. But the audio quality is poor, the audios didn't play to the end, making me and my friend miss most of every explanation on historical places and monuments. The tour guy wasn't helpful, when we told him about the audio problem... More

The day we bought tickets at stop 0, it was chaotic at the best. It took ages to get tickets and then the wait to get on a bus started. The commentary was patchy and this should not be the case with modern technology and care & attention of the staff. Apart from this, it is a great way to... More
