Adult Ages 8+
Child Ages 2 - 7

Great way to spend half a day getting to know the suburbs of Buenos Aires:

In this exciting and fun-filled half-day tour our team of reliable and professional drivers and very passionate, informative, knowledgeable, and helpful tour guides with excellent English skills will take you in a small group of no more than 12 guests on an epic adventure that offers the perfect balance between nature and history.

After hotels pick-up, you will cruise the widest river in the world while getting spectacular views of Buenos Aires skyline from the waters of the “Río de la Plata”.

After one hour of navigation through the wider river, you will arrive at the Parana River’s Delta, a magic 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 “Porteños” (residents of Buenos Aires) and an everyday home to thousands of “isleños” (islanders). A unique experience where your eyes will be delighted with the majestic scenery (that is very different from anything you have seen before) while you get to learn 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 Buenos Aires suburbs, where you will enjoy a very authentic snack including “empanadas” (local pasties) and drinks in a beautiful and historical venue that belongs to the Italian Rowing Club of Tigre City.

For the rest of the tour, on board of a comfortable vehicle, you will drive you through the northern suburbs of Buenos Aires to give you 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, you will visit several sites, including the Fruit’s Market (a type of bazaar where locals shop for home goods and where you can find some great souvenirs that feel authentic) and San Isidro City (where you will get the chance to visit the district’s marvelous neogothic cathedral).

Once time is up you will be driven back to Buenos Aires city, where you have the chance to stay somewhere on the way to keep exploring Argentina’s most fascinating city or to be taken back to your hotel.

At Signature Tours we consider this to be a must-see in Buenos Aires area, as it offers you the unique possibility to experience something completely different without having to travel far away from the city.

Highly recommended! Mary - Oct 2019

I loved everything about this experience, from the pick up at my hotel (sharply on time) to the delicious empanadas, and the navigation, which is an experience itself: you can see Buenos Aires coastline from the river and then you enter the Delta to admire all the floating houses. Our guide Sol was great also, very knowledgeable and funny, and she was attentive to our needs and questions.

This tour is a “don’t miss” Oconnbus - Jan 2020

Emiliano and Luis were fabulous and made a good tour great. The scenery was wonderful, and we really enjoyed the boat ride and the snacks. But the best part was learning about the culture and lifestyle of the area from Emiliano, whose vivacity and sense of humor made learning such a joyful experience. Luis was a safe and competent driver, and both he and Emiliano were helpful and attentive to all their guests. We would consider this tour a “must do” for anyone visiting Buenos Aires.

Thanks, Enrique, for a fantastic job guiding this tour. I learned quite a bit! The river cruise was very relaxing and the scenery, fascinating. The empanada lunch and additional tour stops that followed were icings on the cake.

A fabulous day Peter G. - Sep 2019

One of our best-ever excursions. Emiliano was a superb guide: entertaining, informative, and constantly circulating amongst the group to ensure everyone was satisfied. The cruise, the meal, the markets - all were above expectations. Thoroughly recommended!

Totally worth the money! Carmen G. Aug 2017

The boat ride was really interesting because you see lots of different houses near the water and it was fun to see and wave to all of the passing boats. Our group was great and it was fun to meet and talk to other tourists and exchange stories and experiences. We felt that this tour was just enough time to see everything and feel like we had soaked up a lot about the Argentine culture. We loved it!!!!! Our guide was Sandra...what a lovely tour guide...she was pleasant and friendly and she explained everything very well.
