Excellent tour.
, Dec 2020
Tour was great. The boat ride was very good, except it was pretty crowded onboard. The best tip is to stay on top of the vessel and avoid the main cabin with seats. Use your sunscreen!

Dear traveler Thank you so much for sharing with us your experience on your tour. In this excursion, we can see an important extract of our history, such as Delta de Tigre. It defines a lot of our culture. We are pleased to know that you enjoyed the knowledge of our guide. Your words make us very happy, and we really appreciate your time to write this review!
Interesting boat ride, takes a while to get there and back
, Mar 2020
We enjoyed the boat ride in Tigre, including the narration, and it gives you an experience of a very different part of Buenos Aires. It takes a while to get there and back, and we had already seen most of the landmarks we passed early on. They did a good job of picking people up, but at the end of it, you have to get back to where you started. This limits its usefulness for cruise travelers. We were able to make it back to the ship, but lack of good metro or bus service to the port necessitates a taxi ride to get back there and eliminates any plans you might make for doing other things after the tour. Would be a better choice for non-cruisers.

Dear Warren Gray, We are really sorry to know that the tour did not meet all your expectations. When you booked through the online platform you have the specifications regarding inclusions and exclusions. You made a reservation in regular which was only for passengers staying in downtown hotels, not for cruise terminal (pick up from cruise ships has an additional fee). Our agency decided to confirm it anyway assuming the charges for the entrance to the cruise terminal and the additional guide who made the initial contact with you. The distance from the cruise up to the drop-off area is 20 minutes walking. However, we are really happy to know that you joined our tour and that you enjoyed the Tigre Delta. We really appreciate your comments as it helps us improve our services. Kind regards.
Not worth the money

The tour wasn’t as described. We went straight to the boat. It was not a catamaran. Just an old boat and very crowded, hot, dirty, and difficult to see anything. Then we took a short tour of San Isidro. If we had gone in the order described, we would have ended at the boat and we would have stayed in that area for a while. Then made our own way back on the train. We were supposed to take the train back which didn’t happen because we had the rest of the tour after the boat. Do it on your own.

Nice to get out of Town
, Feb 2020
Nice excursion to some surrounding areas of Buenos Aires. Enjoyed the route, the narration of our very knowledgeable and personable guide, Sol, and the pace of the afternoon. The Tigre Delta area is quite unique and the one hour boat tour around a few of the islands was very pleasant and interesting. Additionally, Sol said they could drop us off anywhere in the city on our return. It was our last day and we wanted to see El Ateneo, so we were dropped off a few blocks from there. Great experience!

The boat trip was very nice and we felt for the price it was right. Our guide Laura was polite and knowledgeable. Pickup and drop off were excellent.

The operator advanced the departure time by 45 minutes, on the tour day, so we cannot participate in the trip.

Dear Piotr Wolejsza, We are truly sorry to read that you did not take this tour. The tour you booked is a regular service. The schedule was not changed, you were the first to get on the bus. When we sent you the pick up details, you were in Uruguay and asked us for the last pick up place. Unfortunately, you did not arrive on time as you had to leave your luggage because it is not allowed on the tour. The tour guide waited for you 20 minutes at the meeting point with the other passengers who were taking the same vehicle. We are very sorry you could not join us. Thank you for your review, it always helps us to improve our services. Kind regards, Tangol Travel Agency
Not do interesting
, Jan 2020
The guide was difficult to understand. It seemed that she spoke much, much more in Spanish than in English. I do not believe she translated everything she said in Spanish into English. The boat ride was good, but not very informative. Overall, the tour was not very interesting.
