    Take the A subway and get off at Puan. Walk a few blocks along Av. Rivadavia, turn right on Emilio Mitre, Walk four blocks to corner of Emilio Mitre and Av.Jose Bonifacio. You'll probably see folks already standing in line to catch this free tram. The ride is about 20 min., punctuated in the middle with a description (in Spanish) of these old trams, after which one of the motormen presents calendars, key chains, mugs, etc.for purchase to support these old trams. A calendar is 150 pesos. We love old trams/trains anyway and this was a good way to walk around a different neighborhood. Limited hours, only Sat. and Sun.

    Tickets were bought a month in advance online with the company without any issues. On the day of travel it was an extremely wet day so maybe some daytrippers to just Colonia decided against a visit. That meant check in took just three minutes wait at 09.20. Onwards to immigration stamp out of Argentina and stamped into Uruguay at the next desk. Into the waiting room by 09.30, all very efficient.
    A downstairs seated area and the same upstairs where the departure gate was. Free seating when you board, none allocated, comfortable enough and clean.
    We arrived at Colonia on time, immediately outside arrivals were buses for the different tickets, daytours to Colonia or onward to Montevideo for us, again a comfortable seat on a clean bus. The bus arrived at Tres Cruces a shopping centre and bus terminal in Montevideo at 14.40 on time. A no frills but no issues good service.
    Note that that Tres Cruces is 4 or 5 km from Old Town and just a bit shorter to Pocitos and Palermo but an onward taxi to anywhere will be needed.

    We used David’s services for several rides to and from Aeroparque and Ezeiza airports during our 2-week visit in Argentina. We were a party of 5 but with luggage for 10. David neatly managed to fit all pieces in his large and comfortable van. He was always punctual to pick us up at the apartment or at the airport, maintaining a good communication at all times. We felt safe with him when driving through the chaotic Buenos Aires traffic. He goes above and beyond in his work. Highly recommendable.

    If you are headed to Calonia, you need not be at their terminal until 7am for the 8:15 sailing as they are busy processing passengers for the sailing to Montevideo. Stand along the right side of all the barriers as that is where they have everyone queue when the Montevideo crowd has gone. So many people eventually queue the line zigzags through the terminal.

    If you are a foreigner, when you get to Immigration get in the lineup at booth 8. While there seem to be 3 booths that have both the checkout from Argentina and the checkin for Uruguay, #8 is the only one I’m sure of. Otherwise the other booths check you out, but then send you in a counterflow to passenger traffic, to booth 8. (Awkward/dumb)

    On board the ship don’t rush to the upper deck for the view: the view is vast, brown river water. Sit in the red zone 7 on the port side. When the ship docks, passengers are released section by section and this seems to be the first section of regular passengers let off.

    If you plan on taking the included historic tour, be aware it is only offered in Spanish.

    Returning from the Uruguayan terminal is far more organized.

    After all was said and done we felt the trip was not worth the hassle and expense. There is simply so much to see in BA and so little of any difference in Calonia.

    Awesome transport with Nani!!
    We flew into and out of Buenos Aires (and went to and from Uruguay on the ferry); Nani transport was on the spot! We even did a guided tour of BA on our way back (had a late flight).
    Nani was super responsive and punctual. We had a great time with him, his dad, and the tour guide! Kids loved it as well. Even had time to stop by the Cemetery and Market to eat tasty food before going to the airport.
    You can’t go wrong with Nani for all your transport (and guide needs) in Buenos Aires!

    Fernando is an excellent driver, I strongly recommend booking through him! I wanted to book a taxi to pick us up from the airport at arrival in Buenos Aires, I wanted to book this from Europe before flying there. I reached out to Fernando via whatsapp a few days before my flight and he was very responsive, we agreed on a pre-arranged price. At arrival he was waiting for us, very professional and polite, he has an official taxi cab and can give you great tips about Buenos Aires. Very trustworthy, book with him!

    IVECO Bus - are the official sponsors of the Combis Terminal located meters from the Obelisk of Buenos Aires.
    They have electronic signage which is not always accurate and the benches for resting or waiting on , could also be cleaner but there are cell phone charging tpwers, Wi-Fi connection and security surveillance camaras.
    This terminal receives around 550 buses daily that travel to the south and west of the Buenos Aires suburbs carrying about 65,000 passengers per month.
    The buses are clean, cheap and have A/C, but if you do not read or speak Spanish you could have a small problem.

    TIP: When in doubt just keep asking, eventually somebody will speak English and help.

    Safety seems to have improved throughout the subway system. Talking to hotel staff and other locals, we heard only good comments and recommendations to use the subway.

    Belle epoque style (high Edwardian) - entry free, several eateries. Enjoy the clean bright hall with echoes of Art Deco - lamps, floor pattern etc. Lots of warnings about crime - so suggest visitiong outside rush hour. Near to tower, memorial, park San MArtin

    For about 25pence or 30centimes euro, you can take from Retiro to Tigre or from Retiro to Mitre then tourist train for Delta costing just over a euro (20$). (see my Tren de la Costa review). Clean, new trains air conditioned and very cheap transport.
    Delta boat trips well worth doing and this is your cheapest way to get there.

    Nestor is the best guide you can ever find in Buenos Aires. Loyal, punctual, patien and very flexible at all your need. He is also knows everything you need to know about the city, every hidden spots, every place not easy to get, and with his knowledge, will explain you carefully what you want to know. Basically he is not only a driver but it's a all inclusive man, which will bring you in a magic athmosphere in B.A. i would highly recomend him for any kind of trip inside or outside Buenos Aires, also because his prices are very competitive. You will meet him as a guide and you will leave him as a very good old friend. Don't exitate to contact him anytime you need.

    We visited this old station now beautifully restored. Many of the original fittings, floor and wall panels are intact and cleaned up. Was a busy station as it was connected to the subway as well. Lots of places to eat in and around. If you like to see old stations well used, this should be on your list.
