We did a lot of hop on and off bus throughout the world
The price is reasonable as cheaper than European cities
It costs 1290 peso per person,there is no senior rate( unless your are a local)for two days
One can get the tickets online...More
It’s sad how a decent product can be totally ruined by poor maintenance and attention to detail. There are two parts to a good tour: the sights and the explanation. This company’s tour was spoiled by a crackling sound system. Our tour of Buenos Aires...More
Provides a great way to get an overview of this vast, sprawling city. The buses go past almost 50 sights and you can hop on hop off as many times as you like.
We purchased the two day ticket and made full use of it...More
Rude staff, totally disorganized, not enough seats that are covered, audio is poor quality and has nothing to say anyway. Mostly just stupid music. Every time we came near to a stop, the guide on board loudly and at great length announced the next stop,...More
I purchased a 24 hour ticket from the main office (directly opposite the 725 Continental Hotel). Good value and I paid by card.
I agree with the comments about the commentary, most of he things mentioned were just after the commentary, it was mixed and...More
The concept of a hop-on/hop-off bus visiting the main tourist sites in a city is certainly not original, this particular bus improves it with a sensible route and a reasonable multilingual audioguide.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of practical problems. We were lucky to take the...More
Our 24 hour pass took us the red and blue routes around the Centre and suburbs of Buenos Aires. The recorded commentary (choice of ten languages) concisely yet comprehensively explained the principal points of interest along the routes. Lots of bus stops and a bus...More
We bought the 48 hour tickets at the Cruise terminal - good value, although annoying that they will only take cash. Despite all the negative reviews, we found the bus a great way to gain a perspective on the city as well as to take...More
Had the tour on new years day as it was one of the very few “attractions” which were in service. This alone gives them some credit. Encountered much of the problems written in other reviews about denied boarding. We bought our ticket at stop 00...More
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.,
where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.

It was a couple of hundred pesos per person, BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE CASH on the bus, no credit cards. The buses are in poor repair and the narration was spotty, which whole areas with nothing at all, I learned later it was because the operator did not push the button when they were suppose to. A waste of time, in my opinion.
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 ! :)
