Oh, how I wish I had seen the Trip Advisor reviews on this company yesterday!! My experience today completely concurs with what many other people are saying here. Its completely overpriced - I (luckily) avoided the 2 day ticket, 450 pesos and paid 250 pesos for the single trip. Rip - off! They say they offer audio commentary in several... More

This is a great way to see the city...a hop on, hop off tour, with a headphone guide!! We got to see all major sites, including Eva Peons grave-the grave yard is beautiful & different to,anything I've ever seen.......this is a must....an amazing site...stopped for coffee en route... A long, fun, informative day out!!

The bus tour offers 3 routes (red, blue and green). I paid for a 2-day pass and was able to complete the red line the first day. They gave a brochure that CLEARLY stated the schedule of each route. When I showed up the next day for the blue line, the company rep said the bus would be 15 minutes... More

We took the North tour from this company, which is the blue route. The route does not have any notable sights and not a great value for the money. For example, the one stop we did (which was unexpected, since we thought it was not hop on/hop off format) was at the cemetery and a cathedral. Although moderately interesting, it... More

We were extremely disappointed with this tour. The bus was dilapidated and dirty, and when we asked for the head phones they advertised, the guide said they were unavailable. However, he assured us that he would do a better job telling us about the tour than the head phones could. His English was so heavily accent we couldn't understand most... More

This bus tour started just around the corner from our hotel and as it offered 3 routes it seemed ideal. How wrong we were.! We did the red route first. There were no headphones as stated and only one of the guides spoke English. His English was okay but his knowledge of the city was nil. We knew more from... More

Exception made for a couple of ladies interested on the "NORTE" Tour , we had the Bus to ourselves , and thus turnig the Tour guide into our own exclusive guide . The circuits are splendid, not missing one single item... More

The bus was shabby but the guide was kind and helpful (He spoke both in English & Spanish). It's not a hop-on-hop-off tour but they'll let you get off somewhere on the route if you wish to. There are 3 routes and each route has a mini-walking tour. The souvenir shop at Boca mini-walking tour is too expensive (but you... More

I was doing just fine exploring the city on foot from my friend's apartment in La Boca to Plaza San Martin until I stumbled across L'Open tours. The guys showed me the map and the highlights I would see. I was interested in doing a bus tour because I eventually wanted to end up in Recoleta and wanted to take... More

We decided to take a hop-on, hop-off bus tour and were approached by a man holding a bus sign at the corner of Florida St. and Santa Fe St. in front of the Marriot. We bought our tickets from BUENOS AIRES L'OPEN TOUR (www.lopentour.com.ar). PLEASE NEVER USE THIS COMPANY. During the tour, we had the option to get off the... More
