Premium Tigre Delta and San Isidro Tour from Buenos Aires

93 reviews
Swap the busy streets of Buenos Aires for the waterways of the Tigre River Delta on a day trip that’s ideal for first-time visitors. You’ll see a more provincial side of the region as you explore the cobbled streets of San Isidro. Plus, you'll escape the crowds on land during a canal cruise on the delta.
US$79.00 per adult

Didn't really visit the bookstore, but it seemed to have a lot of variety. The cafe, however, is very good. With delicious food, calm atmosphere, and well priced items; it's well worth a visit (even if you just walk through the bookstore to the cafe). 100% recommend!

I stopped by here several times to get a glass of wine or buy a bottle. The cafe is in back for the book store. They also offer sandwiches and sweets.

Part of a bookstore, the cafe runs a Saturday evening dinner and tango show for an affordable 400 pesos per person. For the price you will have a no frills three course dinner and a show. The three course dinner is nothing to write home about. Entree is chicken empanada or cold tuna crepe. Mains were lasagna, bondiola or chicken melanesia. Go for the pork. It is the most edible of the three. The lasagna had lumpy ricotta cheese in it and no meat. The chicken melanesia was dry and tough. It had no sauce. Desserts were flan and ice cream. Basic fare again nothing to shout about. The tango show on the other hand will tick some boxes. Note: Dont expect the show to start on time. The cafe had to fill up the tables first so it could be quite a wait. Ths show is small scale. Two musicians both good. A singer/mc despite having limited English still makes you feel at ease. And two dancers who are really good with tons of showmanship. You will see all the high kicks and flips you desire plus a few creative moves that will surprise you. For the price, this place is worth a shot.

This is a sweet little cafe at the back of the Distal bookshop near the Recolta Cemetery. Our first visit we had delicious Submarinos with Churros recommended to us by our walking tour guide! Our second visit we paid to go to the Tango dinner & show on a Saturday night, it was 400 pesos each and you get a three course meal, soft drink, and a lovely show with traditional music, singing and dancing. We really enjoyed the intimate and casual setting, and the staff were really attentive and friendly! Delicious food! We arrived for dinner at 9pm and the show itself started at 10:30pm and finished just before midnight. The singing, dancing and the musicians were all very talented and it was great to see some real local talent, and hear the locals that were in the audience singing along and really enjoying themselves! I would highly recommend this charming cafe for a visit day or night!

This cafe is in the back of a bookstore. The proprietor gently urged us to buy tix for the Saturday tango show. The Distal happens to be immediately next door to our hotel Urban Suites. We reluctantly complied. He was very nice. The show exceeded our expectations three fold. There were locals, Mexican tourists...not a word of English, but it didn't matter. A wonderful show....song and dance. Even the food was fine. The servers spoke almost no English so we basically said yes to whatever they suggested and we were not disappointed. We highly recommend!
