Very disappointing. We had to hunt seats which had sound that worked...the commentary was uninformative and out of synch...co-ordination was bad - although in fairness the bus cannot dictate traffic conditions. Payment is difficult as only local currency is accepted. Ridiculous! Why not accept credit cards $$S, ££s, and €€s to take advantage of all the foreign tourists? Another suggestion... More

Disappointing experience from start to finish with difficulty getting tickets, finding bus stops and hearing the commentary which was either very loud or garbled. Be aware that the route map on the website is out of date. There are more informative and cheaper ways of finding out about Buenos Aires. I'd give this tour a miss.

We were told that foreigners pay 370 and argentinians pay 110! Our advice to all readers of this, do not buy a ticket for this tour! Take a taxi! It is not value for Money! The noice in the headphones was terrible, the information was poor and the bus did not stick to the route. The guides talked very poor... More

I don't where to start. Uncomfortable seats, a sound system that sounded worse than finger nails on a black board and a pre-recorded tour that did not sync with our location broadcast thru defective headsets. To add insult to injury the staff was completely indifferent to the problems. My advice is to find another tour company.

Unbelievable this is sold as a tour. It's an overpriced badly run transportation service. My favorite part is The mandatory 20 minute rest stop at an isolated restaurant they clearly own.

First, tickets are sold at Roque Saenz peña 728 and not in the stop 0. This is a business that wants to take advantage of tourists. The ticket is $260 (for tourists) and there is an extra ticket for discounts etc (not worth it). However they tell tourists that the ticket is $360 and those who doesn't know pay the... More

We didn't seem to experience any of the common problems reported by other reviewers. At the end of the day - it's a bus ride! Headphones were a little off - the 'music' playing when there was no commentary was disproportionately loud relative to the commentary (no means for adjusting volume). Agree - buying tickets a bit of a hassle.... More

From buying the tickets, which had to be paid for in pesos and cash, to waiting over thirty minutes for a bus, to not following the route map to, getting the taped commentary wrong, to taking 3 hours to go 3/4 of the way round this tour is probably the worst bus tour i've been on. Having said that you... More

This is a really hard review to rate because the tour itself I.e being able to see the whole city in 3 hours was great BUT I'm sure I could have paid a local taxi driver the same money to take me around, without him speaking any English to me and I would have got the same enjoyment. It is... More

I've done bus tours around the world and have never had one as bad as this! I even went back to ask for part of my money back. 1. Sat on bus, put on large headphones. Heard music. Went slient for a while and then continued. Turned out, I was missing the commentary/tour. I had to change seats to find... More
