We want to thank you and Karina so much for all your help and service while on our first trip to beautiful Buenos Aires! You and your company provided more than just transportation; you provided us peace of mind, which, in a foreign country, is priceless. From taking us shopping for various creature comforts to the personal, genuinely friendly service you helped make every moment on the private tours you gave memorable and intriguing.
As you probably recognized, we are not your typical travelers and make no apologies for our high expectations when we are fortunate to break away from our busy lives. We can honestly say that you both met and exceeded all expectations and for that, and the stress it saved us, we are most grateful. The money we invested in your services was some of the best money we spent. I would recommend that anyone who takes the time and effort to travel, to employ SilverStar to make their trip more fun and stress free.
Investing in trustworthy, reliable, accommodating, safe and knowledgeable drivers- who have a pleasant personality and who can translate - is as valuable and important as selecting the perfect accommodations. Your services allowed us to save precious vacation hours by recommending where to go, what to see and what not to see, based on listening to our unique interests. We can't wait until our next visit to Buenos Aires...And the first call we'll be making is to you at SilverStar Transfers and Tours.
It will be our pleasure to recommend you and your company should the need ever arise. You have our email address.
Thank you again for everything! Amigos para siempre!
Fred and Karina of Silver Star Car Service are wonderful. I found them on the Internet and booked them on my recent trip to Buenos Aires. Not only were they waiting for my wife and me at the airport and transported us to our hotel in a luxury automobile, they provided helpful tips about sightseeing activities and shopping suggestions. We also booked them for a city tour, which was exceptional. Based on our exceptional experience with Fred and Karina, we plan to use them again when returning to Buenos Aires. Too, we are recommending them to friends who plan to travel to Argentina.
Fred with http://www.silverstarcar.com/). My husband and I agreed he was worth every penny of the cost. We used him again to transport us to and from the airport for our Mendoza flights, and then for our final flight home. Fred went way beyond what was necessary, providing little mini tours along the way, small bill change, coin change, etc., all the little things that made our life easier that first day in BA. I can recommend him without any reservation!, was there to greet us and guide us through the airport to his nice (
I used Fred's service yesterday to go to EZE and he was absolutely fantastic! The car is lovely, he has a wonderful personality, provided cold drinks for the ride...I highly recommend his services and will most certainly call him next time I need transportation to and from the airport.
Has anyone seen the big Lincoln Town Car driving around BA? The guy who owns it is Fred a very down-to-earth likeable guy who aims to please. He is an ex-pat American who speaks Spanish, is a great driver, and a great all-round person. He'll take you on a tour, or pick you up at the airport and he is so reliable. We used his services several times over the past few weeks and it truly made our visit to BA most enjoyable.
We just just arrived (2 hours ago) in Buenos Aires. We were over an hour late. Fred was there waiting as promised. He was the most courteous, and professional driver. He took us to Palermo - Hollywood for less than regular taxi's quoted - and in a luxurious Town Car (may be the only one in BsAs).
Fred´s transport service is fantastic !
Fred is awesome. I discovered him for my hubby, who is 6.4″ or 1.99m I loved how Fred text/called me to let me know he was on his way to our house and he did that after he dropped Gabe off at the airport. We decided he is well worth his pay, especially since he SHOWS UP EARLY.
If anyone is
looking to get to and from the airport in Buenos Aires, look no
further. We used Fred, a native English speaker, who picked us
up in style from the airport and dropped us right to our door in
Palermo. We booked by calling his US phone, 214.502.1605 but he
also told us that he has a new website that you can book on
The treat yourself to a fabulous start to your trip option:
He’s American so speaks English. He’s got a fabulously large and luxurious Lincoln Town Car. He’s Fred from www.silverstarcar.com and I recommend him.
For my 2009 trip to the UK, admittedly on a bit of a whim when I discovered him on Twitter, I decided to try Fred and see whether spending a little bit extra at the start and end of my travels really could buy me a calmer state of mind. It did.
Fred may be more expensive than a taxi, but I reckon he’s worth it, especially for first time tourists. You won’t have to worry about relying on your Spanglish after a 15 hour flight, being ripped off, or getting a taxi driver who doesn't know where he’s going (Fred has the knowledge and a GPS)… and at the same time you can sit back in comfy leather and feel cocooned in one of the most elegant cars on the Buenos Aires roads. Fred will even exchange a note for $10pesos of monedas on your arrival in Buenos Aires – what other taxi service will do that invaluable (see here for why it matters) deed? If you want your holiday to get off to the smoothest possible start, then I say, splash out and try Fred for yourself.
I mentioned in this episode about the great transport and travel advice that I received from Fred at SilverStarCar.com. If you’re ever in Buenos Aires and would like to travel in comfort from the airport or around the city, consider giving Fred a call and see if the service he offers suits your needs. In case you wondered I’m receiving no kickback from Fred for this, he’s getting this plug simply because he offered me great service and it deserves to be mentioned.
I used Fred’s services to get to the airport today and can recommend him highly. He was 15 minutes early (something to remark upon in Buenos Aires), he had drinks in a small cooler (water and a soda), the car was wonderful, and I didn’t feel that I was participating in a Grand Prix while trying to get out of the country! Also, if you are traveling with a big family, everyone fits. He even called Tom after we arrived to let him know I got here okay.
I would recommend using Fred from Silver Star to handle your airport transfer. When my husband and I first arrived, we found the airport to be a bit hectic and the taxi area quite confusing... additionally, we didn't speak Spanish very well. From then on, we've used Fred for our airport trips. .... I guess it could be a bit more pricey, but you won't have to worry about getting the run around or fake bills or not being able to communicate with your driver. He also drives a Town Car, so if you have the need for a larger car he's the one.
We also used Fred's Town Car service and it was GREAT! His price is well worth it. Sure you can take a taxi for a lot less - but you never know what state of repair the taxi is in, the driver, etc. And if you can't speak Spanish - Fred is a welcome face indeed. We had 5 big suitcases, 2 carry ons, 3 laptops and a cat - so his nice big car was a plus. He offered us cold bottled water which was a nice touch. We knew we weren't getting ripped off, etc and he had lots of helpful tips for our trip in BA.
Coming to an end of an almost three week stint in Argentina, ninth in four years with time split between hunting in Cordoba and downtime in BA. Have used the Silver Star Car service on several occasions both for myself and friends that have joined me and left mid trip. On each occasion I found Fred to be punctual, attentive and very helpful. I certainly have no hesitation in recommending him to others. Quite frankly when you have completed a fifteen hour flight from the UK the last thing you want is the hassle of the taxi lottery at EZE!
I found Fred from http://www.silverstarcar.com/ on landingpadba.com. He sports a nice large Lincoln Town Car (presumably the only one in BA). Coming into BA the first time without much in the way of Spanish communication skill, having a native English speaker was a huge comfort. Fred was waiting for me at the airport (on time - which counts for a lot here). On the ride into the city, Fred filled me in on all sorts of local customs, places to see, and even came prepared to change some money for me, saving me the hassle at the airport. When we got to my destination, the people I was supposed to meet were not yet arrived. Fred let me use his cell phone, then gave me the low down on getting a prepaid phone for the duration of my visit.
When my friend flew in a few days later, Fred picked me up in the city so I could greet my party at the airport and then brought us both back for no extra fee. Fred made suggestions on cool things to do and see during her stay, and even made arrangements for us. On my friend's departure, there was a scheduling conflict, and Fred promptly made arrangements with another car service with an English speaking driver who was also prompt and provided an enjoyable ride to the airport.
Fred is a concierge on wheels, competitively priced for the service he offers, and I highly recommend Silver Star Car for anyone needing reliable, friendly, not to mention informative, transportation.
On Wednesday, September 16th I enlisted Silver Star's services for an EZE airport pickup. Silver Star was there waiting for me upon my arrival even though the arrival terminal had been changed and my flight was delayed over four hours. Silver Star's Lincoln Town Car was clean, modern, and very comfortable. Silver Star provided pleasant conversation and drove the car in a safe and very controlled manner. I recommend Silver Star's services for those seeking executive level transport to / from the airport and / or for transporting friends / relatives / business associates who do not speak Spanish and / or do not know where they are going.
My buddy and I just spent 2 weeks in Argentina and the best road transportation we got was the ride with Fred from our hotel in BsAs to EZE last Sunday. Only wish we would have used him previously during the trip. My friend is a retired LEO and used to teach state troopers how to drive and he was very impressed with Fred's driving skills. Aside from the comfortable car it was nice to also have someone who drove safe and comfortable behind the wheel. We would never consider using any our transport than Silver Star on our next trip.
