You cannot beat the convenience of this tour. It has a delta boat tour; hop-on-hop-off bus tour; and, the option of including a prix-fixe lunch. If you are pressed for time, then this is an easy option. However, the restaurant meal served is for the tour clients - we saw other customers eating very-different meals, You can shop for better boat tours. The entire bus route is probably a 1-2 hour walk. If you have the time, plan your own.

We travelled on the subway from 9 De Julio station. You need to purchase a Sube card at the station. We put 150 pesos on card and can use it for both of us. Our trip to Tigre cost about 32 pesos each so very cheap. It takes about 1 hour normally for the 30km trip with a changeover at Retiro to Mitre line to Tigre. We had the problem that the train to Retiro wasn't running so had to get on a different train and do a bus transfer to the Mitre connection. Whilst this sounds confusing we just want to add everyone is very helpful. Just ask, if they don't speak English they will point to someone who does or gesture if you say eg Retiro. One non English speaking guy heard us say Tigre and "adopted" us pointing to the stops on the train wall and indicating to follow him as he was going that way. We got there safely. We went to the Tourist Information Centre in Tigre and booked a deal of hop on and off bus for the day plus at 4.00 pm a canal boat tour of one hour which then continued for another hour back to Buenos Aires Puerto Madero. 920 pesos each. This was a great way of seeing Tigre. We stayed on the bus for a full round of about 45 minutes and then stayed on to return to Stop 7, an area along River Lujan and walked down along the restaurants and had lunch at an outdoor cafe. We then walked back to town for ice cream at McDonald's but mainly for a/c as it was quite hot and humid. There are many tour companies along the dock which sell one hour tours for 200 pesos. If you want to look at all the different options of boat transport you could then choose your own company. Some of the wooden open sided boats looked really cool. We loved the canal tour, very interesting to see the supermarket boat, the school which has a free school boat bus, etc. Everyone swims in the muddy waters. The last hour was a means to an end and not a lot to see until you get close to Buenos Aires and the city esplanade goes on forever. This is a tour you can easily arrange yourself and is a lot cheaper than advertised tours if you are on a budget. Tip: Hotel gave us a Sube card handed in by previous tourist. We will pay it forward by doing same with our unused balance so card can be reused. The card can go into 50 pesos debit (the cost of purchasing the card).

It's a hop on hop off bus that passes through several touristical points in Tigre. You can buy the ticket on the bus or included on the Sturla's boat trip. Tigre is small, the trip is short and lasts aprox.1 hour. I thought not so interesting, and used it for aid during walks (like in Paseo Victorica). The buses are also in not so good condition.

Unless you plan on stopping at one or more of the stops, don't waste your money. We were on a package tour so didn't have a choice. The entire loop takes an hour and that's if you aren't delayed 20 minutes like we were at the train station. We would have much rather spent the hour at Puerto de Frutus just wandering around. Do your homework first and unless you see something of interest, skip this. It was easily the most disappointing "city tour" we've been on.

Having had breakfast, we decided to go by train to Tigre. This is the Delta area of the Rio Plata, from where many boats and ferries ply to and from outlying islands and even as far as to Montevideo, Uruguay. It is here they offer pleasure cruises, and in fact on our previous visit to Buenos Aires in 1999, we had done one such trip out from the city. So this time we thought we would explore the town of Tigre itself. Returning to Retiro station, this time to the main train shed, Retiro Mitre, it was evident what a grand structure this had once been. There are many platforms, but now only few in use. Many ticket windows now boarded up, save for a couple, and a former covered carriageway where intending passengers would alight for their onward travel by train. Air travel would appear to all but killed off the use of the train for long distance journeys. All this is a testimony to a grand past and an uncertain future, save for a couple of local services, one of which was to Tigre. A return ticket cost 48 peso per person, around £2.50, or 4 USD, for a journey of fifty five minutes. This train was quite modern, air conditioned and clean, and with no litter. Like yesterday when we travelled to Villa Rosa, the train was packed, although the clientele today was markedly different. Although there were undoubtedly a few families, most were young people on a day trip, and appeared more affluent than the previous day. Arriving in Tigre we observed a hop on hop off bus outside the station, which offered several options, including a trip on a launch with lunch. We opted instead for an hour's trip on an open sided bus. This cost 160 pesos for both of us. £8 or 11 USD. There was only one family of three who also got on the bus, but departed quite soon, so we had the bus to ourselves. Commentary both in Spanish, Portuguese and English which was quite informative. The ten stop round trip started from the Tigre rail station. The first stop was the Parque de la Costa. The amusement park with a casino and there are several souvenir shops and restaurants here. Next stop was the Fluvial station the departure for all the boat trips which ply, mostly for local areas, but there are also ferries to Montevideo, Uruaguay, which in fact is only just across the Rio Plata. Stopping close to the Tren de la Costa terminus at Delta, we continued with stops at five different museums, the Mate, the National Naval, the Art, the history of the English invasion of 1806, a six room house covering the history of the Argentine Coast Guard, all of which were in beautiful well kept buildings. Finally reaching an imposing neo-colonial church built in 1776. We criss-crossed over various river channels, and there are many old country mansions and summer residences which date from the mid 20th century, giving this part of the journey a feel of Fort Lauderdale, but with properties and boats on a much less grand scale. The hour seemed to go quite quickly before we arrived back at the railway station at Tigre. We thoroughly enjoyed this relatively inexpensive tour which gives a very insightful experience of the town of Tigre and is highly recommended.
