I truly love "Tigre". The ships coming and going all the time. I really like to visit "mercado de pulgas" on weekends too. I was there on may in 2017 and I wish to come back one of this days.

We are fluent in Spanish. That saved us from a total disaster as the tour guide provided by Tangol was incompetent. She hardly spoke to us. The boat ride to Tigre was good. The bus tour in Tigre was supposed to be in a city bus. We decided not to wait for the city bus and

Dear traveler, We are very sorry to hear your comments. The drop-off is not included in the price, as mentioned in the description of the tour. The tour ends by coming back by public transport, in that case the train. The city of Buenos Aires was doing public works on this line for 3 months and they set up a bus line in order to bring passengers until the terminus. We are very sorry you had to take another bus, however I am sure your guide was there to explain you how to come back to your hotel. The train line now came back to normal. We are glad, though, to hear that you enjoyed the tour. Thank you for your review, it always helps us to improve our services. Best regards,

Spent the first hour driving around BA picking up guests. Then 3/4 h ride in a minibus and then a 1h cruise through the delta. Muddy brown water and not very interesting. Could not hear the commentary and at times the boat seemed to go too fast. On the return journey we stopped

Dear Phil R, We are truly sorry if the tour didn't meet your expectations. This excursion is to be considered as a city tour to discover Tigre and the countryside near Buenos Aires, to get another vision of the argentinian life. The city of Tigre is located an hour away from Buenos Aires, so the half day tour you did is for people who don't have a lot of time, as indeed it takes 3 hours to go and come back by bus. Thank you for your review, it always helps us to improve our services. Best regards,

Laura our guide was excellent! The combination of water and land cruise was a great way to see the city skyline and Tigre island. Had a relaxed day and would recommend the trip.
