Just outside of Buenos Aires, you’ll find yourself in the rural city of Tigre just along the Paraná Delta area. This waterside community is formed by more than 5,000 small, scenic islands and the locals that inhabit it. Join Local Guide Andrés, who spent part of his childhood on a farm in the region, as he shows you an alternative way of life to the fast-paced Buenos Aires.
Locals come to the delta to escape the city, and after coming to this relaxed area you’ll understand why. As Andrés takes you towards Tigre City, you’ll stop and visit interesting sights like the colonial district of San Isidro and the Puerto de Frutos, a center of artisanal products. Once in Tigre City, you’ll get to enjoy a private tour on Andrés’ motorboat. Twisting through the narrow rivers inside the delta, enjoy the non-touristy path through the river, where you'll witness the stilted houses along the river and learn about farming in the region and how the locals live.
To truly experience real life along the river, Andrés will take you to his own family farm, teaching you about the traditions and lifestyles of the region while treating you to a homemade, waterside lunch. A great way to see a completely different side of Argentina than the city, this day trip will be a relaxing and interesting break from the bustle of Buenos Aires.
The price is for a group of 4 people. For bigger groups, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for a price quote.
While a lot of guides will tell you that they’d always wanted to become a guide, I didn't always know. Yet, I’ve been a guide for nearly 20 years now, and I can still remember the exact moment I decided it was for me. I used to be an avid mountain climber, and my favorite climbing destination was Bariloche in the south of Argentina. I was on a trip and resting at the main little square in the city, carrying my backpack with all my equipment, my rope, carabiners, and what not. Before I knew it, I was surrounded by a group of women asking me a series of questions about climbing. One woman then asked if I was a tour guide. I wasn’t at the time, but I remember wondering to myself, why not? That year, I started studying for my license in tourism, and the rest is history.
I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, so I love hosting tours here in my home city. But even before I started offering city tours, I was a mountain guide in Patagonia. After five years guiding in the south of Argentina, I returned to Buenos Aires because I wanted to help travelers explore the city like a local instead of as a tourist. I wanted to lead unique tours that would take travelers to the best hidden restaurants, show them the city’s rich history and culture, and bring them to parts of the city that only the Porteños (Buenos Aires natives) knew about. I also wanted to return to my second home, Tigre Delta, where I spent part of my childhood on a farm, living in the fresh air and nature. I love how through my tours I get to show both of my worlds: the bustling city of Buenos Aires and the quiet, peaceful town of Tigre. I can take you on a private boat ride through the islands of Tigre, and in the same day, show you the Porteño customs and culture shared amongst the residents of Buenos Aires.
