My wife and I chose this type of tour on our initial visit to BA. The departure times are posted at the designated pickup points. Information regarding the tours is available on the web. The times and schedule for the tour remarkably were accurate taking...More

We had heard that this hop on, hop off bus tour was good so we decided to give it a go. The buses are every 20 minutes (it says in the guide) so we thought it would be good. We booked our tickets at a...More

Way overpriced. Broken audio systems. Infrequent service. Overcrowded buses. Unannounced route changes. Just get taxis us way cheaper and faster. I'm sure you could even download an audio guide. These busses are the worst I've ever ridden and I've been on numerous.

The commentary kept breaking down and jumping about. The bus diverted from the route and missed out whole sections of the planned route

This was a great option for me since I only had 1 day to really see as much as possible in Buenos Aires. They don't take credit cards on the bus, so either buy online ahead of time or have cash. I only hopped off...More

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.,

There are several "central downtowns". But if you talk about the oldest part of the city, around the antique main Plaza, you can go walking. You can also take a taxi.

If you travel alone, your cheapest bet is probably Tienda Leon Bus transfer from EZE airport to Retiro station and a short cab ride from there to Recoleta, 5 minutes away.

L'Open bus and Buenos Aires Bus - Hop on Hop off (8 Replies)
I will be in BA in August and was interested in doing a HOHO bus tour. However I have been reading mainly negative reviews for both bus companies. Has anyone taking either bus recently who can give me some feedback? Curious to know their services have improved.

Just got back from Buenos Aires. The yellow bus is good......Took 3 hrs to complete thecircle if you do not stop. 70 peso for 24 hrs and 90 peso for 48 hrs. I thought it was good and informative. Guess they have improved their services or perhaps there was another blue one which is rarely seen on the road. Took the 90 pesos ticket.

Does it stop near the cruise terminal? One of the stops is "Puerto", is this close to the terminal, and will it be safe to walk there from the ship? Thanks in advance for all the help.

The closest that the city yellow bus tours gets to the cruise ship terminal is stop #14 which is Plaza San Martin. I don't feel comfortable walking from the cruise port terminal since the area borders a very bad slum(villa miseria) of the city. It would be better to take a taxi to one of the stops(if you have purchased your tickets previously) then board the bus. Also, if Galerias Pacifico is running their free shuttle from the port to the shopping center then take that since there is a...More

Buenos Aires Bus worth it? (6 Replies)
I hope this question is not too vague for you all, but my boyfriend and I will be traveling to BA in march and staying for 7 nights. I do not know whether the tour bus is really worth 120 dollars or if it is plausible to see all the big/necessary sites on our own throughout the 7 days. I don't know if the idea of cramming 24 stops in one day is worth it, I feel it might be more enjoyable to relax each day and be on our own time. Am I understanding the tour bus schedule correctly? Do you have...More

Our relatives and visitors always take the bus their first day here, to get an overview look of the city and to relax . You can get on and off or you can just stay on and enjoy the ride, as ricardo suggests. It really is a lovely way to see the city . Do Not Forget your camera ! :)
