  1. It sounds a good idea for the tourista who is only there for a few days, but quite honestly it looks to me an expensive way to see only a small part of the city. For me the only way to really enjoy Buenos aires is to get out and walk.

  3. Hi Debi
    Thanks for the comment. You can get on the bus and start the tour at any of the stops on the route. But I understand some of the stops are not very well marked and people have difficulty finding them.

  5. Its a shame for this company how their employees treat the guests on the bus. After looking long time for the stop no 8 we just saw that a bus came, we hurried there, it closed the door right when we came. We waited another 30 Minutes (total 1 hour now), the next bus came. We trusted that we can pay in the bus (like written on their website and on the sign at the bus stop). The escort guy refused to let us in the bus - we should buy tickets first (anywhere in the neighborhood, not to understand). We said that we waited already 1 hour in the hot sun (I am disabled in walking). With a stupid grin and no comment he closed the door and the bus disappeared. One hour wait to learn the bad behaviour of this employees. A shame for this company and the country how they treat their guests. We took a taxi - more convenient and much more cheaper.
