Deena M
, Mar 2016
We were quite disappointed in this over priced tour. We had booked this months in advance and when I called to confirm a week ahead I was informed that due to a new president in power we weren't allowed to enter the palace. I think that if I hadn't contacted the tour company, no one would have notified us. We had the option to cancel or modify the tour. it was too late to look for another tour. It was suggested that we go to the history museum. We were picked up by a very large van,there was only 2 of us the driver didn't speak english and the guide had a heavy accent and spoke softly, so she was hard to understand. We repeatedly asked her to speak slower so we could understand her better, but she didn't. Also we had to request that the air conditioning be turned on in the vehicle multiple times. It was a very hot and humid day.We asked to go to Evita's grave, but we were told that it was on the other side of town and no time, however we were returned to our hotel earlier than expected. We then went out by taxi for lunch and to the cemetary by ourselves. The tour was very expensive and we could've taken a taxi all over the city for the day for a lot less that the tour cost. We would not recommend this tour .

Unfortunately, this was a major disappointment, the reason we took this tour was to see the Palace but it was closed on the day of our tour. How could you sell this when there is no way we could get into the palace! Truly upsetting considering we had already seen everything else offered in this tour in other tours - giant rip off!

Dear Christine Schwarz, We are very sorry that you were not able to enter the Government Palace. Apparently there has been a last-minute change by the government since you cannot visit when the president is in the palace. This change was not notified in advance so it was an unexpected and unusual event. We apologize again for this, but it was out of our hands. We really appreciate your comments as it helps us improve our services. We hope to have you back so that you can reverse your opinion and thus check the quality of our services. Kind regards, Tangol

This was an expensive trip, but well worth it in the end.Our guide, a young man called Niko was an excellant guide. Our driver was very good and a very careful driver, which is not easy in Buenos Aries. We saw so much in almost 5 hours, The Presidential Palace were Niko guided us through the crowds with the help of people he knew in the Palace. We hit all the sights including again The Recoleta Cemetery which we had visited, but he gave us more information on the Eva Peron story than the previous guide had given us. His knowledge of the city was excellant, and his English was superb. He was an excellant ambassador for Viator and Argentina.

Both the guide and driver were very helpful particularly as we had a problem with our luggage at hotel. The tour was very interesting introduction to Buenos Aires and the guide was very knowledgeable. One issue outside operators control is that the Presidential Palace tour is NOT exclusive and we were forced to line up in file like naughty school children! Apart from that, excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to let a review, so we can continue to improve our services. Our tour guides are examined on their knowledge and language skills, we are sorry that you were displeased with your guide. It may be that the guide has a Spanish accent pronunciation making communication difficult (which does not excuse anything). We take this feedback and forward it to the guide as an opportunity to improve our services. Thank you for your honest feedback and please accept our apologies. Kind regards, Tangol
