    Take the A subway and get off at Puan. Walk a few blocks along Av. Rivadavia, turn right on Emilio Mitre, Walk four blocks to corner of Emilio Mitre and Av.Jose Bonifacio. You'll probably see folks already standing in line to catch this free tram. The ride is about 20 min., punctuated in the middle with a description (in Spanish) of these old trams, after which one of the motormen presents calendars, key chains, mugs, etc.for purchase to support these old trams. A calendar is 150 pesos. We love old trams/trains anyway and this was a good way to walk around a different neighborhood. Limited hours, only Sat. and Sun.

    The ferry wasn't as busy as it seemed it would be (ticket were listed as sold out) and there were tons of empty spaces.
    We got there over an hour early for customs and that was really quick for us. You clear to Uruguay before the boat there and clear to Argentina before the boat back, so that's super helpful that everything is taken care of once you get to the dock.
    Views were okay on the way over (river is very polluted and brown), but the day itself was wonderful.
    Worth it for a fun day outside of BA to be around less crowds.
    Make sure you bring bug spray! It was very buggy all around town.

    I would highly recommend David Transfer Taxi. Upon arrival to EZE my driver Carlos was waiting at the designated pick up spot holding a sign with my name, as was stated in the pick-up information that was sent to me. A picture of my driver was also sent to me which made me feel more comfortable. Carlos quickly greeted me and my husband, took our luggage, and escorted us to his vehicle. The vehicle was very clean, and he was a kind, curteous, and safe driver. My return trip to EZE was done by David and his son. Again, the vehicle was very clean and he arrived a few minutes early. We conversed about our stay and the places we visited. David got us to the airport safely and with plenty of time to catch our flight. All communication was done through WhatsApp and was a very easy process. I highly recommend David’s service.

    If you are headed to Calonia, you need not be at their terminal until 7am for the 8:15 sailing as they are busy processing passengers for the sailing to Montevideo. Stand along the right side of all the barriers as that is where they have everyone queue when the Montevideo crowd has gone. So many people eventually queue the line zigzags through the terminal.

    If you are a foreigner, when you get to Immigration get in the lineup at booth 8. While there seem to be 3 booths that have both the checkout from Argentina and the checkin for Uruguay, #8 is the only one I’m sure of. Otherwise the other booths check you out, but then send you in a counterflow to passenger traffic, to booth 8. (Awkward/dumb)

    On board the ship don’t rush to the upper deck for the view: the view is vast, brown river water. Sit in the red zone 7 on the port side. When the ship docks, passengers are released section by section and this seems to be the first section of regular passengers let off.

    If you plan on taking the included historic tour, be aware it is only offered in Spanish.

    Returning from the Uruguayan terminal is far more organized.

    After all was said and done we felt the trip was not worth the hassle and expense. There is simply so much to see in BA and so little of any difference in Calonia.

    Awesome transport with Nani!!
    We flew into and out of Buenos Aires (and went to and from Uruguay on the ferry); Nani transport was on the spot! We even did a guided tour of BA on our way back (had a late flight).
    Nani was super responsive and punctual. We had a great time with him, his dad, and the tour guide! Kids loved it as well. Even had time to stop by the Cemetery and Market to eat tasty food before going to the airport.
    You can’t go wrong with Nani for all your transport (and guide needs) in Buenos Aires!

    We used Fernando twice on our trip recent trip to Buenos Aires. He took us from the cruise port to the airport, and then later from our hotel to the airport. He communicated quickly via WhatsApp. He was on time. His car can handle 4 adults and their luggage. He works with a few other people as well. His rates are reasonable.

    Given the bad reputation of Buenos Aires cab drivers, I preferred to prearrange transfers, so that I knew cost up front. As an aside Ubers cannot get into the cruise port.

    The biggest problem is lack of information anywhere. Finding your bus, especially if you don't speak Spanish well, is difficult. Small or no signs. Don't trust the electronic signs as they are not complete. Best advice is to keep asking the bus drivers even if it is not your bus.

    Safety seems to have improved throughout the subway system. Talking to hotel staff and other locals, we heard only good comments and recommendations to use the subway.

    This company provided the best transfer I have ever received in all of my travels. We booked them 5 different times in March 2024 and they were timely in the pick-up, easy to reach on Whats App, and very professional in every way. When our airline changed the time and airport departure (Aeropark to EZE), the transfer service made the change immediately and showed up at 4:50 for our new 5 am pick-up. They were never even one minute late for pick-ups. I also referred them to my sister and her family as well as my friend and her family who were traveling with us, and everyone had the same excellent experience. This is a total of 11 trips! I give Airport Transfers Buenos Aires a 5+ rating.

    Belle epoque style (high Edwardian) - entry free, several eateries. Enjoy the clean bright hall with echoes of Art Deco - lamps, floor pattern etc. Lots of warnings about crime - so suggest visitiong outside rush hour. Near to tower, memorial, park San MArtin

    For about 25pence or 30centimes euro, you can take from Retiro to Tigre or from Retiro to Mitre then tourist train for Delta costing just over a euro (20$). (see my Tren de la Costa review). Clean, new trains air conditioned and very cheap transport.
    Delta boat trips well worth doing and this is your cheapest way to get there.

    Nestor is the best guide you can ever find in Buenos Aires. Loyal, punctual, patien and very flexible at all your need. He is also knows everything you need to know about the city, every hidden spots, every place not easy to get, and with his knowledge, will explain you carefully what you want to know. Basically he is not only a driver but it's a all inclusive man, which will bring you in a magic athmosphere in B.A. i would highly recomend him for any kind of trip inside or outside Buenos Aires, also because his prices are very competitive. You will meet him as a guide and you will leave him as a very good old friend. Don't exitate to contact him anytime you need.

    We visited this old station now beautifully restored. Many of the original fittings, floor and wall panels are intact and cleaned up. Was a busy station as it was connected to the subway as well. Lots of places to eat in and around. If you like to see old stations well used, this should be on your list.
