The tour driving up out of the city first & then the boat ride up the Tigre delta was amazing. To see all of the houses & how the river system works so interesting. Then lunch up in the river at Andres place was so peaceful. Could spend so much more time there.

The Tigre Delta tour with Andres is a great experience. As we drove to the Delta we drove through Palermo. Andres took us to a few historic sites and drove through a neighborhood so we could see homes and life outside the city. Living on the Tigre Delta is a way of life few us of see today. He provides a great insight on how people live when all transport and commerce is by water. It was a great experience and we highly recommend i
Highly enjoyable! The Tigre is another side of Buenos Aires altogether, out of the city and on the water. Went to the Gato Blanco for a great lunch, outdoors next to the river, the world seemed a long way away. Andres was perfect, very helpful, informative and totally flexible. Highly recommended.

Andres is a very special tour guide and we enjoyed our tour with him immensely!

This was our 2nd tour with Andres in BA. We chose the Tigre Delta as we wanted to experience something different. This tour was fab - we loved it. He took us on his boat to his small holding in the Tigre Delta where we had veggie empanadas and a bottle of red wine. It was lovely to see the school bus boats and the shop boat etc. Once again Andres was an excellent guide. (It rained all day but his boat is covered and so is the outdoor patio area at his small holding, so it was all still fab).

Andres is an outstanding tour guide. He's very friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and takes the trouble to get to know you. Clearly, he's passionate about what he does. We had an wonderful experience and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the Tigre Delta tour. Knowing that I was vegetarian, he went the extra mile to serve me extremely delicious vegan empanadas for lunch. We didn't just tour the Delta, we learned so much about Argentina and its people. Don't miss this tour with Andres.

The Tigre Tour with Andres was excellent! This is really special; it is an authentic experience that can only be had because Andres is providing access to a place that tourists will never see otherwise. Being on Andres' own boat, going to his family farm, and eating empanadas with him at their table there was so comfortable and personal. It was a lovely day, Andres is a great host and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

Andres went out of his way to make our day memorable. He has a lovely farm in the delta and served us wine and delicious empanadas - absolutely well worth the visit!
Donald WatrenUnited States
Fabulous day with Andres. Was very impressed with his knowledge and affability. I would highly recommend this tour. One of the best tours we have ever taken with ToursByLocals, most have been very good, but this tour was excellent.
James KurtzUnited States
Andres was very punctual and incredibly knowledgeable. His flexibility to cater to our inquiries made the day seem like we were hanging out with an old friend that knew a lot about Buenos Aires.
We had a lovely day with our guide Andres. To start with, he was very punctual when picking us up at the hotel. On the ride to San Isidro and Tigre, he gave interesting comment. The boat trip trip on the delta was quite an expierience, with an excellent lunch at a local restaurant. Afterwards, we could visit Andres's home farm, where we could meet the horses he owns. Certainly a trip to recommend!
Donna AndradaUnited States
The Tigre tour was fantastic. Andres does a fabulous job. He is extremely knowledgeable and you can tell that he truly enjoys his job. Loved the boat ride, lunch and the visit to his family farm. You will not regret doing this tour!
Michael JordanUnited States
Andres is a very nice man who speaks excellent English. His tour features some sights that you are unlikely to see with another guide, particularly in the El Tigre region where his family has owned a ranch for years. All in all, a fun and highly informative day.
James PellegrinoUnited States
The four of us had a wonderful tour with Andres assisted by Mirta. Both were very friendly and knowledgeable and the trip up the river on Andres boat to his farm was very interesting and enjoyable. The lunch was wonderful and it turned out to be a very pleasant day. We would recommend this to others wanting to get off the beaten path. Andres speaks wonderful English and he is very informative and friendly. Mirta is a lovely lady, also very nice and a wonderful cook.
David EmanuelNew Zealand
We enjoyed our day with Andres. His tour was something completely different.The boat trip was interesting and he gave us an excellent lunch. Well worth doing if you have time. David & Sue
What a great full day tour. Andres local knowledge about such a broad range of subjects makes the tour very informative and very interesting. A fantastic lunch spread topped off with a glass (or two) of Argentinian Malbec was such an enjoyable experience. A highlight was the tour down the delta on Andres boat. Would highly recommend Andres tour to anyone wanting to see a different side of Buenos Aires.
Lawrence (Mike) B.United States
Andres gave a fantastic tour of the delta on his boat, then a relaxing afternoon with lunch at his farm. This is the perfect way to see the Tigre delta going places the large boats cannot. Highly recommend.
Marcia K.West Windsor, NJ, United States
Andres was a personable and knowledgeable guide who gave us unique insights into life in Argentina. The tour was a wonderful contrast to the city tour (relaxing and showing us another side of Argentinian life outside the bustle of Buenos Aires). We were honored guests in his home and farm. Andre and his private boat gave us a far better experience than could large group tours
Sondra EttlingerUnited States
Andres tour is really special, and our group liked everything about it. I'm not much of a shopper, but the market he took us to enroute was very local and interesting. We enjoyed the boat ride, although we all felt it could have been a little shorter. The visit to the farm was outstanding -- a superb lunch, a walk around the farm, and especially the tango lesson. Andres and his partner were great hosts, and all of the arrangements were flawless.
Stuart H.United Kingdom
What a fantastic day! A little dearer than some other trips but that was because of the cost of a private boat, homemade food and two guides (Andres had to concentrate on driving boat and car). The farm was beautiful, the garden full of dragonflies. The food incredible (as was the wine) and the tango lesson fascinating. The scenery in the delta was amazing. Well done Andres.
Christian EsserBritish Virgin Islands
Great Tour, amazing food and we even had a Tango Lesson with Mirta, who is also unbelievable, Lovely guides.
Barry G.United States
Andres was a wonderful guide and he planned a great day for us. He is extremely knowledgeable about Argentina, Uruguay and Chile and that was a perfect way to learn a lot about the areas we are going to visit once we leave Buenos Aires. During our day with Andes we explored and saw a wide area around Buenos Aires. It was super and we recommend him unreservedly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very muvh Barry!!!
Laura Lee B.United States
Our full-day tour to Tigre with Andrés and his colleague, Mirta, was excellent from start to finish! We're a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teens, aged 13 and 15) and we enjoyed each aspect of our day - learning about the Tigre Delta, Argentine history and tango culture; cruising the beautiful waterways; enjoying a delicious homemade lunch; and even practicing basic tango steps. Andrés and Mirta were professional, extremely knowledgable and excellent company. Don't miss this unique tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Laura, you have a very nice family and we spend a nice time with you!
Kathleen FrankovicUnited States
This was such a great tour -- we got outside of the city of Buenos Aires, to the nearly Tiger area -- where locals travel. The experience of seeing a farm accessible only by boat an hour outside of BA is something that reminds us that even the largest cities can have beautiful green spaces. Plus we got a tango lesson, a hike and a home cooked meal. Andres and Milta are terrific guides.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Katheleen!!,we had a nice time with you, I hope to see you and your husband again!!
Suzanne GreenLos Alamitos, CA, United States
Andres provided a wonderful tour of the Delta. He began the tour with a drive north to his boat which included stops and interesting commentary along the way. He was a gracious host, lunch at his house in the delta was delicious and included a tango demonstration and lesson. It was a fabulous way to end our trip to BA. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Suzanne and Kent, we had a nice time with you!!!
Anita NitzscheUnited States
Enjoyed the trip down the river and going to his home was a real treat! He prepared an original Argentina meal in his own yard where we had a great place to eat and heard stories and pictures of his family. They Tangoed and showed us the basic steps. Afterwards we traveled back through the Delta and to the car. Fun tour and specially because it was just the four of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for coming to my farm, Anita!!, we have had a nice time with you, your husband and friends!!!!

John ColosoUnited States
Andres picked us up at the airport even though our flight was changed numerous times. He took us on his boat for a tour of Tigre and stopped at his home for a wonderful lunch. My wife would love the recipe for the flan. it was delicious!! After lunch we went back down the river and Andres dropped us at our hotel. A perfect first day in Buenos Aries!! Thanks Andres
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello John!!, Thank you for visiting our farm!!!!!. Andres
Deborah GilgUnited States
Fantastic tour with delicious lunch at very lovely farm in the river delta. It seemed as though we were in the bayou weaving through the delta expertly guided by andres. Well worth the price.
Linda RossUnited States
A major reason for choosing Tours by Locals was to experience local living in Buenos Aires. The Tigre Delta tour was perfect for me. It took me out of the city congestion into a calm, quiet river community. The local foods and beverages are delicious. Andres is gracious, punctual, and seems to really enjoy making certain his guests have a extraordinary day. Highly recommend this tour for people who want to enjoy a truly local experience.
Nancy EastlundAiea, HI, United States
Our Sun Tours Hawaii group of 33 had a fantastic day tour. Andres had an assistant(Mitra)helping out due to group size and logistics of our tour. From Tigre River cruise, to Tren de la Costa, and back to Buenos Aires all very fun. Unfortunately, one couple had a medical situation forcing them to return home. Both Andres and Mitra went out of their way to assist them at the ER in Buenos Aires, while we sailed off on our scheduled So. Am. cruise. Cannot THANK YOU enough ANDRES and MITRA. See you both again!
Jim SullivanUnited States
Fantastic tour with Andres. He is extremely pleasant and helpful. We had a delightful day touring the area, especially the trip into the delta on his boat and the visit to his home on the island.

Sara CressUnited States
Wonderful and peaceful. Andres was very accomidating and a great host. The ride down the Tigre was a breathe of fresh air after being around 1000's of people at airport. Food was delicious and plentiful
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sara and friends!! Thank you so much for your lovely words! You are a very nice people and we had a real nice day with you, thank hou for came again!!!! Andres and Mirta
Debbie BrodieCampbell River, BC, Canada
Our tour with Andres and his partner Mirta was a most enjoyable and relaxing day in which we experienced the delta in a way no other commercial tour could provide. We saw the navigation of the delta and the local lifestyles. We had good food and a chance to try the Tango. We rate this as a 5 out of 5 tour. Don't miss it if you have the chance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dave and Debbie, Thank you so much for your comment, we had a very nice day with you both, thank you again for your visit to my house n the islands!!
This day was a highlight of our stay in Buenos Aires. Our hosts Andres and Mirte made us feel like their friends. They told us much about the region, its history and traditions, people's habits, their way of life. We saw beautiful landscapes of Tigre delta from different perspectives and far from tourist paths, walked in the forest, enjoyed fantastic homemade lunch (and Andres inquired about our tastes and preferences beforehand). And after that we got a tango lesson of our dream. R
