Tourist bus, a good option to explore Buenos Aires

By

If you have short time to visit Buenos Aires city you can take advantage of the Tourist Bus, a good option to visit Buenos Aires and its main tourist attractions.

Every day – even holidays – you can take the bus at different stops of the city and start your tour. The system is the same as the large European cities, the Hop On Hop Off, where you can get off and explore the different neighborhoods and in addition receive information of what you’re seeing in different languages.

The buses are double-decker with the bare top. It is ideal to make the journey during the spring or early fall to travel at the top where you get the best views.
