Tigre Delta & River Cruise
Your transition from the bustling urban atmosphere into tranquility begins with a short drive along Del Libertador Avenue. Narrow roads lead through upscale neighborhoods with luxury homes and yacht clubs.
A visit will be made to the French-built neogothic San Isidro Cathedral. Built in the 19th century at an imposing 233 feet, it's reminiscent of a Harry Potter set.
A short hop later, you'll arrive at the island town of Tigre, named by the British after the jaguars that roamed there during the 1800s. Among the many regional riverboats, your guide will navigate your vessel through a complex series of channels leading to remote islands that have recently become fashionable destinations.
For more than 100 years, rich bohemians from Buenos Aires traveled the same green labyrinth of streams to spend their weekends away from the Beunos Aires crowds. The Victorian docks, boating clubs, and English gardens will show you that little has changed since the 1920s. Enjoy the boat's easy glide across the water as you view the historic shoreline.
At the end of your tour, you will be dropped off at your choice of 3 exciting locations within the city to explore or enjoy shopping in this vibrant city. This is the perfect Buenos Aires tour for those who want to relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of the city's lesser known parts.
Please Note: This tour offers drop-off to your choice of 3 exciting locations within Buenos Aires to explore or shop at your leisure after the tour: the Obelisk of Buenos Aires, the Galerias Pacifico Shopping Center, or the Puerto Madero Waterfront. The tour does not include drop-off at the pier. Full information will be included in your electronic ticket.

A scenic and educational river cruise with comfort and the right amount of time.

This was not advertised as a small group tour, but at least this time it was with a group of about 12 or 14 people. We were picked up at the appointed time and appointed place outside the cruise terminal and then boarded a small and very nice bus. The guide (I believe her name was Stella or Estella) spoke excellent English and was very informative as to what we were seeing along our route and also provided general information about Buenos Aires, Argentina in general and some insight about the political and economic situation there. Once in El Tigre all of us (including our guide) boarded one of the tour boats for a 1 hour tour of the Delta. This is a very pretty and interesting area with a jungle like feel to it. On the way back there were certain drop-off locations scheduled but instead we were given a choice of one of those locations or bringing us back to the ship which is what everyone opted to do. This was a very informative and entertaining tour at a verey reasonable price.

Interesting tour of that river delta area, and a nice change from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires.

We Loved our City Tour & the Tigre Delta River Cruise. The Beautiful Homes,Trees & Museum was a Wonderful Experience. Thank You, Kathy
This tour involved a bus ride from the cruise ship terminal to the delta area with a stop in San Isidro at the Cathedral. Then we were taken to the dock where after a short delay we boarded our boat for the cruise thru the delta area. The commentary on the boat was informative and interesting. A pleasant way to see the way of life for many people in this area. We were then transported back to Buenos Aries where we had a choice of three areas where they would drop us and we could find our own way back to the ship. A relaxing, interesting day.
