Not much to add. They try to draw the tourists away from the official tour next by (which costs half). One single and pretty much broken bus for the complete three routes (forget hop-on-hop-off). When you complain, they get aggressive ("do you want to fight...More

From the majority of reviews already posted, this is not a service you can recommend very strongly. However, having said that, and having not previously reviewed it before we arrived in Buenos Aires...we did elect to "take the tour", mainly because we had limited time...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy

by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
