We booked our tour online a few days before the tour date. Communication via email and whatsapp was great. Signature kept us informed of status of booking and sent us a helpful reminder with tour details.

Tour had just 3 people. Vehicle was clean and comfortable. Tour guide was excellent. Her love of her town - San Isidro made visiting the town special. She was informative and interesting without talking too much.

Overall a great tour and enjoyable boat ride. And oh, lunch was "simple" empanadas. Nothing simple about the onion and cheese baked empanadas. They were one of the best we had in our Argentina trip.

Based on the high level of service, and the great communication with signature team I would not hesitate using them for other tours and even having them arrange an Argentina trip for me.

(I took a Groucho tour with signature and will offer a review of that great experience too.)

We had a a wonderful time on this excursion. Estella was a fabulous guide and the empanadas were an added bonus. It was super fun to view Buenos Aries from the water after touring the city by bicycle the day before.

A great way to see the surroundings of the city if you have at least 6hrs to spare. Our guide was Marillo and Driver was Nicholas. Group of 10 and pickup was on schedule at 9.15am. A 10 min drive to the boat where we were joined by other tour groups. Best seats with weather permitting was the open deck. Having a good camera was handy as most landmarks, wildlife and water-sports were at a fair distant. Boats, planes, houses, people fishing/water-sporting and wildlife was abundantly due to the fine weather. The boat trip took 2hrs. We had lunch around 12noon. Beer and wine was not included. Use the toilets at the restaurant cause much cleaner and convenient after the long boat ride. Light lunch of either salad or Empanadas meat or vege. Three decent pieces served. Toured the River Plate Stadium, University, Presidential Residence, Cathedral of San Isidro and visit the markets. A pleasant trip made possible by Marillo and her humor and knowledge of Argentina history.

Had a great time on this tour. There were only three of us so it felt like a private tour. I think the guides names was Elisia and the driver’s name was Pablo.

Our first stop was to the Port area (where all the cruise ships dock) called Puerto Madero. On our way we saw the pedestrian bridge called Puente de la Mujer (Women’s Bridge). It was unveiled in 2001 and resembles a sharp fishhook or even a harp (it’s supposed to represent a couple dancing the Tango).

We then boarded our boat to head to what’s called the Tigre and Delta region. The town of Tigre and the surrounding Delta region (it’s the 3rd largest river delta in the world, think Mississippi River delta) is a popular weekend getaway for “Portenos” (residents of Buenos Aires). Locals live along the peaceful canals with boats as their only transportation. There are boat taxis, boat buses, and even a floating boat grocery store that delivers! If they want a delivery, they put a plastic bag out on their dock and the boat stops. We saw tons of people kayaking and canoeing. Our boat just slowly meandered the delta seeing cool houses along the water. One looked like an old VW hippie van that I assume someone was living out of. Hey, it had a dock and a great water view!

The boat dropped us off in the town of Tigre and we walked to the Italian Rowing Club for lunch. It was really a classy place. Actually there are tons of rowing clubs all over the town due its proximity to the water and some are in really nice buildings. We had three empanadas for lunch and they were delicious.

After that, our van driver met us and took us to this quaint little town called San Isidro. It had lots of trees and cobblestone streets as well as some pretty nice looking mansions. In the town square was this gorgeous Gothic Cathedral called Parroquia de la Catedral de San Isidro. It’s beautiful from the outside and the inside with all its stained glass was very pretty.

We then headed back to Buenos Aires. It was really fun and I would highly recommend it!

The tour leaves BA by boat and travels to Tigre. Highly recommend boat over bus back. Our guide Marillo was delightful. The captain took us the long way though the Delta and it was excellent. Very busy day in Tigre, (a Sunday) might suggest a weekday.

Enjoyed the ride on the Delta and learning about life there. The city stop was interesting. If this is your only opportunity to try empanadas, you will be very disappointed — very dry with a bit of basic ground beef.

Our guide Aime was friendly and informative. She shared cultural traditions and nuances as well as responding to all of our groups many questions.

The length was about right. We were able to browse shops — cheaper than in Buenos Aires— and take in some of the sites.

I love being on the water so the first part of the boat journey is fun. Crossing the mouth of the river is choppy and full of spray. It mellowed out as we wound into the tributaries. The river banks quickly show houses and lodges on stilts. The final destination is the town of Tigre which was not that interesting. The empanadas at the restaurant Vivianco we’re good. We were allowed twenty minutes to visit the repurposed fruit market to shop at the variety of typical curio shops lining the center. The ride back was via bus with a stop at a church and through a few nondescript towns. The guide was interesting. The destination not so much.

It was an interesting day out on the river seeing the sites. Overall my family of 10 enjoyed the experience. Nothing wrong with the tour company at all other than maybe the guide wasn't as quite seasoned as we had with another of their trips or maybe the experience itself didn't leave you that lasting great memory that you keep coming back to when you think of your trip. The ride around the water was great for the first 10 minutes and then it became rather the same the rest of the time. All and all a great day.

We had a perfect day for our excursion that made the boat ride quite enjoyable. It was a nice break after 2 days of exploring the.city to get away and view BA from a different perspective. Our tour guide was amazing and had to do double duty as our small group spoke both English and Spanish. He was a font of information and I learned so much about BA, the Delta, Tigre as well as the other towns we visited. The lunch in Tigre before driving back to BA was wonderful and in a beautiful setting. I highly recommend this wonderful getaway.

A relaxing tour led by our friendly guide Clementina (hope I remembered right). I was pleasantly surprised to find our group on a Saturday was only 5 people. A tranquil delta ride, followed by delicious Empanadas, and a cool marketplace and cathedral. Highly recommend :)
