We booked the daylong trip with Alex. He picked us up on a day of increasing coronavirus-related government restrictions on gatherings, especially involving foreigners. Despite all this, we had a great time, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing what he could show us and tell us about (including his continued "amazement" over the lack of traffic). We did see most of what was originally planned, visiting San Isidro (his hometown) and the Tigre Delta area, but no boat ride or lunch .. which were not possible.

Alejandro, who was our tour guide to Tigre City and San Isidro, was first class all the way. Interesting, insightful and so very helpful! We enjoyed our trip and getting to be with Alex!

This was our second day with Alejandro and we a completely different side of Argentine life. Away from the hustle of the big city, San Isidro and Tigre are communities that are peaceful and much slower pace than Buenos Aires. The Delta boat tour showed us what the typical "weekend" house looks like and how people go about their daily lives when living on the small islands. We highly recommend Alejandro as your guide!
Cheryl VivasUnited States
Alex was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable and presented information in a fun and memorable way. We also had a delicious lunch where Alex helped us order and his recommendations were excellent! We highly recommend Alex.

Alejandro, December, 2019, Buenos Aires Alejandro is a friendly, very knowledgeable and delightful guide! He planned a lovely day for us, with just a few ideas from us, as this was our first trip to Buenos Aires. He was able to design a day with interesting and "off the beaten path" ideas that we thoroughly enjoyed! His English was excellent, and easily switched to other languages as the situation required. He listened, and was able to answer all our questions about Argentina, the history, and the various

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lena so sorry to see your rating. The Tigre area is a very nice place but under the extreme high tide we faced the boat ride wasn't enjoyable. That is why I decided not to charge you the tickets and to visit several spots not included in the tour like the horses stables, the Chinese town, the park neighborhood, hippodrome and polo field in Palermo, the "little island" neighborhood and the Ateneo bookstore, but it seems my efford wasn't enough. If coming back to BA you'll be y guest at a home made BBQ.

We really enjoyed our tour with Alex. His english was excellent, and he really knows the history of the area and his way around town. He was able to adapt the tour to our needs and we feel he chose very nice sights and recommended great restaurants. His car was clean and comfortable for 4 of us. He took great care of us and we would definitely recommend him as a guide.
Thomas JuhnkeUnited States
Everything was as advertised and more. Upon meeting Alejandro gave a run down on the day's itinerary and offered up options we selected the ones we wanted and off we went. He had us to the airport in good time and he took very good care of us. He lives in the Tigre/San Isidro area so has an intimate knowledge of the region. One of the highlights was to tour a horse racing stable where we were able to get up close to some amazing specimens.

The second day with Alejandro was as interesting and well organized as the first one and he was willing to go the extra mile to make the day perfect. The program itself was an interesting complement to the downtown visit we had before. We can recommend Alejandro for his qualities, his broad knowledge and his ponctuality.
Ruthann WordenSarasota, FL, United States
Our tour of Tigre was so interesting. It should not be missed when you are visiting Buenos Aires. Alejandro is an exceptional tour guide. You can tell that he loves Buenos Aires and Argentina and wants his tourists to get the most from his tours. Tigre is an area that you don't want to miss. Be sure to book your tour with Alejandro.

Very interesting and relaxing, off-the-beaten-path tour of Tigre, the Delta islands, and San Isidro. Alex is knowledgeable and showed us parts of the area not usually seen by tourists.
Brad KardatzkeUnited States
Our guide, Alejandro, was extremely understanding and thoughtful when one member of our group was not feeling well and could not attend the tour. He did a great job and showed us the best side of Buenos Aires.
Valerie HepburnUnited States
Alejandro was superb. The tour was enjoyable and insightful. He gave us great history and perspective on the city and the country. He truly went the extra mile to ensure that we had the best possible experience in Buenos Aires, the surrounding communities and the Tigre Delta. we highly recommend Alejandro as talented, most capable and very collegial.
Dean PeytonUnited States
We arrived in Buenos Aires via Oceania cruise ship. This was our second day touring with Alex. On day two we headed to Tigre and the River Plate Delta. The highlight was a boat cruise through the delta consisting of many islands, homes and tributaries, a very interesting experience. Alex dropped us at an outstanding restaurant for lunch in San Isidro and then tour of San Isidro. At the end of the tour Alex dropped at the airport. We had a delightful two days and would highly recommend Alex.
Robert MudgeUnited States
The first day in Buenos Aires we had the 8 hour city tour with Alex. The second day we did this tour coupled with Alex dropping us off at the airport. Alex did a great job of making sure that we were on a proper schedule to see everything given traffic, crowds etc. That was no simple en devour and he had it all figured out so we did not miss a thing. Be sure to take the boat tour as it was inexpensive and well worth it. It was a pleasure to be with Alex as he seemed to know everyone which really helped.
Joy Cooperelkton, MD, United States
Alejandro is just as good a driver as he is a Guide! Taking in the sites of Buenos Aires with perfect English with an Argentina accent. His vehicle was very comfortable and air conditioned. We asked him for a eating like locals restaurant and he delivered. The hippodrome tours were an excellent personalized addition. Thanks Keith & Joy

We spent three days with Alex and it was all exciting, non of it was redundant, and it was all filled with his excitement, passion, and knowledge for Buenos Aires. Each day was different in what we did but the same in it's success thanks to Alex. I wrote another review comment for the other day so read that for my additional thoughts, although it all nets out to the same praises and appreciation for Alex - thanks Alex -
Randall ScottUnited States
Alejandro was an excellent guide providing history & importance as well as descriptive information on everything we saw. We were met right outside the ship terminal and walked a short distance to Alejandro's Nissan X-Trail because of the bus and van congestion. We enjoyed seeing many Buenos Aires sights not on the ship's tour. The Tigre Delta boat ride was a huge hit as was the tours thru tree canopied suburban neighborhoods, the estancia museum and the rose garden.
David TysonBolton, LANCASHIRE, United Kingdom
Excellent trip to the delta which was enhanced by Alejandro's knowledge and enthusiasm. Would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone
Laura ValanUnited States
Alex was terrific. We had booked him for two days and this was the 2nd day. There were four of us and we really enjoyed the delta boat tour. In addition, Alex was so very helpful in taking us and all of our luggage to our next hotel in rush hour traffic way beyond the expiration of the booked time. His English was very good and he was extremely knowledgeable about BA in addition to world events. Would recommend him highly.
Hal P.United States
We scheduled our tour with Alejandro on the day we were finishing a cruise. He was waiting for us right where we exited the port, and he made the transition to the hotel so easy! Then he took us on a lovely tour of the Tigre islands, San Isidro, and Buenos Aires. We had a beautiful boat ride among the islands and a wonderful lunch at a restaurant he selected. He showed us many neighborhoods and areas of the city and explained the history and geography of the area very well. He's an excellent guide!
Maria EgusquizaUnited States
We just finished this tour and all of us could not be more satisfied. This had been our second day in Buenos Aires and he asked us what we had seen so he can better cater our tour. What a tour!!! Besides being very knowledgeable and pleasant he was very accommodating stopping for pictures when we wish and giving us the time we needed when getting off. I guarantee others would not have given such an insider tour and seeing things only locals would see I travel a lot and Alex was amazing!!!!
Erica Meyer LiewSwitzerland
Alex is a great tour-guide with lots of knowledge of Buenos Aires and its people. He has a good sense of humor. Takes you to places a normal tour-route would not.
Deborah WinsorUnited States
Another memorable, full learning tour with Alejandro. He is very prepared and when schedules changed vis a vis boat times, he was immediately adaptable and we lost no time in exploring and visiting and rearranging things to our best benefit thanks to Alejandro. Even though he was suffering with a painful tooth, he dismissed it and devoted his time and energy enthusiastically to us. Not a second of time was wasted. We could have spent a week with him; he was so generous and hospitable. We are grateful!!
