If your idea of a drop-on drop-off bus is to get the furtherest point of the tour and then get kicked-off the bus, then this is the tour for you. The route is far too long for the number of buses they are running and by the afternoon the buses are full, even the few seats downstairs, (this was a... More

I won't discourage you from taking this bus tour (I actually would do it again), but I definitely want to share a few tips so you don't have the same issues my friend and I did. We took this bus tour on 12 January 2016. I love double decker bus tours and have taken them in cities around the world.... More

Bus tours are usually a great way to see a large city on limited time. Unfortunately, this tour isn't set up that well. We took multiple extended (15+ minute) stops... I'm not really sure of the reason why. I spent 4.5 hours on the bus, and only made it through half the route. The audio isn't great either... after a... More

I've taken this bus during a visit to Buenos Aires in 2014 and it was ok because the ticket was included in my tour and I didn't know about it. However, during my last visit in 2016 I tried to get it again, but when I arrived to get the tickets I discovered there's different prices for Argentinians and foreigners.... More

We HAD to stop for 20 minutes so we could buy things or eat at a determined place. DID NOT like it. They dont advise this, its unnecesary and ridiculous to oblige to stop and buy. In the middle of nowhere in Boca. After that, it was good. Tuvimos que parar x 20 minutos OBLIGADOS y no se nos dice... More

This is the best way to see a very large city. You can get a one day 350 peso or 2 day 470 peso (recommended) ticket. Just the bus ride without getting off takes 3.5 hours so if you want to see everything get the 2 day ticket, you won't regret it. There are two routes the main yellow one... More

The most unbelievable experience ever on city buses!!!! Personnel are not friendly. Schedules are not met....argentinean time they claim! Tour is too long - 4 hours with no hopoff. It goes to areas that nobody understands why. Headphones...sometimes do work! Translations....uauuuu Not much cheaper then private tours.

Worst customer service ever seen for a sightseeing operation. It took us 4 busses to be accepted on board, for all sort of stupid reasons and an attitude. Once on board, well, you get broken seats, broken headset connectors, no headphone or brokens ones only. Careless drivers, dangerous routes with low hanging trees, and for some reason we won't understand,... More

We pay for one day to have the chance to do an all-around tour of the touristics places of Buenos Aires. It is a very good way to do it, and do some stops when you want to visit more. The only thing is that depending of the bus, you may not have enough headphones (so in some, we didn't... More

We decided to take this bus tour as a way to see BA in 1 day. You can pick up the bus in many convenient stops. They run every 30 minutes and take you to areas that aren't real touristy either. There are headphones to listen to a commentary. However, they didn't work for everyone. We stopped and walked around... More

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 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.
