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.

The boat ride was great and a good way to see the tiger. However I find it a shame that we were not able to visit Tiger on foot (we had 45 min to see the Puerto de Fruitos where there is nothing really to see .... I would have preferred to see the center and its architecture )

Amazing 4 hour trip (2 hours on the boat - bus back) To an incredible neighbourhood called Tigres. Georgina, our guide was wonderful. Would definitely recommend this tour to get out of the city for a few hours.
