Tigre Delta Premium Small-Group Tour from Buenos Aires

1. Tigre Delta Premium Small-Group Tour from Buenos Aires

On this fun-filled half-day tour of Tigre and Buenos Aires, embark on an adventure that offers the perfect balance between nature and history. Take in the views on a boat ride, shop local products at a market, and visit the Cathedral of San Isidro. After hotel pickup, hop on a cruise on the widest river in the world while getting spectacular views of the Buenos Aires skyline from the waters of the Río de la Plata (La Plata River). After one hour on the river, arrive at the Parana River’s Delta, a place that truly feels like a fantasy land. Once in the delta, the boat ride continues through a series of narrow channels and islands, a popular weekend getaway for residents of Buenos Aires and an everyday home to thousands of islanders. Experience the majestic scenery that's very different from anything you have seen before while learning all about the locals who live along the peaceful channels with boats as their only means of transportation. At lunchtime, the boat will drop you off at Tigre, a major city within the Buenos Aires suburbs. Enjoy an authentic snack including empanadas (local pasties) and drinks at a historical venue that belongs to the Italian Rowing Club of Tigre City. For the rest of the tour, hop on board a vehicle and drive through the northern suburbs of Buenos Aires to get an overview of what life is like in the outskirts of Argentina’s capital city, home to about 25% of the total population of the country. Along the ride, visit several sites, including the fruit market, a type of bazaar where locals shop for home goods and where you can find some authentic souvenirs. Head to San Isidro, where you'll get to visit the district’s neogothic cathedral. Once the trip is over, get driven back to Buenos Aires. You can choose to be dropped off somewhere on the way to keep exploring the city or you can be taken back to your hotel.

Interesting tour out of the city to Tigre, with some stops on the way, and nice "snack" consisting of three large empanadas and a large non-alcoholic drink. The boat from Tigre goes pretty fast at times, so be aware that loose hats may be blown away. There's both an inside and outside option on the boat. You will be able to see more from outside, but there are large windows in both sides to see the view from inside too.

Boat ride was smooth. Scenery was pretty, and the look into the life of the island dwellers was interesting. It would have been nice to have heard the narrated informational recording, but over the noise of the boat motor, and the yammering of the other tourists, it was very difficult to hear.

Wonderful tour. You get to see a very different part of Buenos Aires on the river. Our guide Miguela...I hope i got that right was very good. Added lots of humour to her narration on the trip.

was quite well. Carolina was super talkable and explained very well about the different places that we went

Aime is an excellent guide with an enthusiasm for people and Argentina.
