Owner description: On the outskirts of Buenos Aires is the Parana Delta, a magnificent maze of rivers and streams wrapped with flora and fauna. We invite you to spend a unique day with us on the Delta. We meet at Tigre, where we then take you to our island base where we start kayaking from the calm and quiet of the inner rivers of the Delta.

“A Perfect day on the Delta”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

My wife and had a full day of exploration, exercise, and enjoyment on the delta with our hosts Chapa and Frank. We truly felt like guests, not customers, as they took great personal care and provided us with both a brunch and dinner. We liked the fact that they met us in Tigre and returned us when the day was done.

As locals, the were able to provide us with limitless cultural, geographic, and historical background for what were were experiencing. The weather and conditions were superb, and as the only ones booked, we had the luxury of a private tour.

As others have noted, the full excursion (3-4 hrs) is a serious workout, especially for my 65 year old body. That said, we will treasure this day as one of the best travel experiences we have ever had.

“Grear Day on the Tigre Delta”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

We had a wonderful day with Chappa, Martin, Frank and Nicholas on the river. The day started with a very nice lunch. Martin had made the delicious bread for the sandwiches! After the review of kayak skills we headed out onto the rivers. It was a beautiful day with many boats buzzing us on the sometimes busy rivers. That just added to the fun. We pretty much paddled for 3 hours straight so I felt as though we got some good exercise. The only thing I would have changed was to maybe have some interpretive "stops" and some opportunity to take photos. The group maybe should have been split into the competitive racing group and the ones that wanted to take time to explore the natural environment as well as take some photos. All that being said, this was an excellent experience and I would highly recommend it. The barbeque that our hosts prepared for our arrival back on shore was fabulous. We were very hungry and thoroughly enjoyed the feast as well as the awesome company of fellow paddlers as well as our hosts. Thanks to all the guys and their girlfriends who treated us to a wonderful day!

“Great, fun and active day”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

My husband and I (over 60) thoroughly enjoyed our day kayaking in spite of the heat and misquitoes. For us, it was the best way to explore the canals - beats the catamaran and other touristy boats that plow through.
The kayaking itself was not too challenging; everyone received basic instructions and warm-up excercises prior to setting out for approximately a 12-15KM tour (3 hrs.) Chappa and Frank were perfect hosts and guides with lots of knowledge to impart. Breakfast and the asado were very good, so was this interesting dessert which consisted of a sweet potato jelly served over a slice of cheese. Would we recommend this excursion? Definitely!!! Unfortunately, no pictures to share; our camera was stolen in Retiro bus station a few days later - tourists beware!
