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.

We've rafted and kayaked in OR and CA but our Eldorado experience on Oct 11th was quite special. Part of the experience was the company of Chapo and Martin, two of the three founders, who met us at the Tigre Station map where all Eldorado trips begin and transported us on the river to their facility. After full safety instructions and drill, Chapo took the two of us on the three hour slow and easy paddle up some of the most picturesque, serene and tranquil tributaries bounded closely on each side by islands and homes, one built with lumber specially imported from Thailand ("The Thai House"). Still early spring, the growth and trees were forming a green canopy over some of the more densely verdant areas. Stopping regularly along the way to chat about life in Argentina and any other things that came to mind, we returned refreshed and ready for one of the best bbqs we've ever had on the lawn overlooking the water with lots of good cheer and conversation. Bravo! Craig and Thanh, Portland, OR.

My father and I spent a day with the guys at El Dorado (Juan and Frank) and had a great day. The delta was quiet (we were there in May on a cloudy day) so it was beautiful to kayak around the different creeks and rivers.

The guys cooked us a great lunch and the place they have is a very relaxing place to spend a day - and their company was great. I would definitely recommend a day trip with El Dorado for anyone that wants to spend an active day out of the city.

We read your reviews before we left and what we found was more than we expected. A perfect few 'fun' hours paddling around the canals as well as in the main river then a fabulous bbq with great wine and home made 'local' sweet potato dessert! We enjoyed the company of Chapa and Frank and sitting in their garden we felt like we were with friends; they have got something special don't miss it.

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.
