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

Often a hop on, hop off bus is a good value, time saving way to get your bearings in a city and learn a lot about its history quickly. Not so with this tour. It costs 170 pesos per person, PLUS a tourist discount card of 50 pesos that we did not want, so for two people that is close... More

I paid over the internet for two tickets (in July this year) on the bus trip but, despite numerous emails, they haven't sent an email with the tickets attached. I did receive a confirmation from both the bus company that they've had the money and from the credit card company that they have taken the money. Sent at least five... More

We went on three different buses and on each one the commentary was rubbish. On the first it was not synchronised, on the second there was NO English commentary and on the third (the next day) the english commentary gave up around Recoleta. I would never advise anyone to use the service - compare it with the wonderful service in... More

On March 29th 2014 we decided the big yellow bus would show us even more of Buenos Aires, wrong. This tour, which could be so good, was nerve-wracking. We boarded at the last stop to be in our seats at the beginning. Do this if you plan to take the tour, it gives you the best choice. There was an... More

We have done many ho-ho bus tours during our travels as we find they are usually a good way to get a quick and economical overview of a new city. This was not the case in Buenos Aires. For a start, the ticketing office near our hotel (Alvear Palace) would not accept credit card payments and neither would it accept... More

The Yellow Bus is an excellent way to know the Capital Buenos Aires. I advice a two days ticket, the price difference isn't big and you get more of the city during two days. The only negative thing is that in the Summer the first floor isn't covered and you can't get tanned.

They are not really set up for this operation. Arrived to buy tickets, a bus was there with a few empty seats but we were told we could not get on and had to wait for the next one. After an hour and a half we had had enough and got off. Erratic sound system but I guess if you... More

Terrible sound system, head phones didn't work, schedule was terrible. We got stuck in La Boca area for over 20 minutes. Several busses lined up but nothing moving. One driver refused to let people get on when there was plenty of room. The audio wasn't consistent with where you were. Save your money on this and take a city tour... More
