Captain Augustin was a terrific host and pilot. Nice plate of snacks and drinks were shared on one of the countless channels tied to a tree. Great way to see a different side of Buenos Aires.

After a couple of days in Buenos Aires downtown we needed to escape from the city. So we went to a private sailing tour in Tigre with Agustin. It was perfect!

Absolutely recommend this to other travelers who think the best way to see a city is to experience the waterways and see the city from the water. There's nothing like it. Making arrangements was so simple. Javier was responsive right away and lined us up...More
