We had a wonderful day with Shir in BA. The gourmet market was full of wonderful fresh food, and our visit was followed by a scenic stroll through the historic English neighbourhood. We then went up to Shir's immaculate apartment, where we learned how to make two types of empanadas, and toss pancakes like a pro. Then we ate local cakes, a cheese and meat platter, drank wine, ate our freshly made empanadas and finished off with pancakes and big spoonfuls of dulce de leche. Shir was great company and the perfect host, as were the other two guests. What a great day out! Highly recommended
Picked up from the hotel on time. Guide was informative on the journey to the port. Sit on the left hand side of the boat, as for the first hour the views are of the coastline. Once the boat gets into the delta the scenery changes, wasn't expecting so many houses and such a community. All very interesting. The trip states that 'snacks' are provided, this consisted of a small coffee and a small pre pack muffin. Boat trip takes about 2 hours. In Tigre we were given about an hour to wander around the markets, but very little of interest to see or buy. There were a few places to eat.
I had a tour that not only met, but exceeded my expectations. Not only was Pat super knowledgeable, but very personable. I was on the tour alone which sometimes can be a bit awkward with someone you don't know, BUT within 5 minutes I felt very comfortable and had the best day exploring El Tigre. I was discouraged by many to not take a tour and to do this on my own and I'm SO glad that I spent the money and did the tour! It was worth every penny!
Somehow we never got the updated pick up time. We were informed to be ready between 1:15 and 2:00p. No one came so we called the number of the local company giving the tour and were told they would be there at 2:20Pm. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the guide, Stewart.
This was a very informative tour and talk on La Boca conducted by Luke. It was well organised with stops in the shade and not too much walking. The group was split into English and Spanish speaking so each group had a dedicated leader in their chosen language
