  • I enjoyed this food walking tour very very much. My tour guide, Gala, was such a refreshing, vibrant person that it was like walking with a friend who is giving you a tour of the best food that is served in traditional and authentic Argentinian restaurants or shops. She also adds so much history into it that you get to understand the context of how such food became distinctly Argentinian. All the food that she made me taste were indeed the best I have tasted--the Beef Empanada, the Beef Asado or Grilled Beef was delicious and grilled to perfection, the sidings were just as superb! I looved discovering about the Yerba Mate which is an influence from the Northern side of Argentina and of course the dessert, the gelato--mainly an influence from Italian immigrants to Argentina, was a great way to end our tour! I would recommend this tour for those who wish to really get to know food in Argentina from the traditional and best sources, rather than the commercial, touristy ones!

  • Great walking tour, excellent local guide and amazing food!

  • Under NO circumstance should you eat breakfast before this tour!

    Go early and wander Recoleta Cemetery before you meat see what I did there your phenomenal guide for a great walking tour of the neighborhood.

    First comes the best empanada I've had in my life. Then we circle back to the cemetery area to a parrilla. At first I thought, oh no, we're going to a tourist trap. But it was REALLY good. And the food kept coming. First out proveletta, chirizo and salad with many types of breads and condiments. I was happy and content with this. Then the entire side of beef came out! A perfect medium rare, 2 inch thick steak. Oh, and did I mention the included glass of Malbec that was about 300 ml?

    Next I tried Mate made in the traditional way an acquired taste.

    Finally, if you can still stand up after a meat coma, there's a stop for ice cream.... something I never knew BA was famous for. It was on par with anything I've had on a street corner in Italy.

    A perfect afternoon with an expert guide eager to share culture and knowledge about BA.

    A MUST tour if you love food culture and a great walk.

  • We arrived at Recoleta and had to look for our tour guide. He did not have a sign and we had to ask several people. Eventually after about 30 minutes of searching we found him. Otherwise it was a nice tour and we loved Buenos Aires.

  • Awesome tour! Great guide and food

  • Fun to experience BA with a local. We had never done a food tour before and it was interesting to see what they really eat and where they really go. Not your local tourist stops. Great fun with lots of background.

  • Like going to lunch with a new Argentinian friend. We had a charming young guide who spoke excellent English. She was chatty and happy to discuss life in Argentina with us honestly and without resorting to a script. The food was outstanding. We had been in Argentina a few days and had already had all of the dishes, but each one on this tour was the best. All at local establishments, not touristy locations. The Recoleta district is charming, but don't expect a tour of the sights, this is really about food and conversation. Had a little problems spotting our guide at the meeting point. Look for someone in a red t-shirt with the name of the tour company on the front, outside of the cemetary entrance. A relaxing and thouroughly enjoyable experience.

  • The tour was very well done and Candy was exceptional.

  • A terrible experience - don't waste your money. The restaurants chosen were inferior quality and I had a tough chewy steak and what tasted like watered down wine. Worst experience of my Argentinian trip.

  • We met at the Recoletta cemetery which was an odd place to meet especially since we do not go in. The tour was 4 people and a guide. We walked from the cemetery through the streets of Recoletta (an area of Buenos Aries). This area is the more upscale section of BA and, we were told to hide the jewelry we were wearing. I did not see a threat anywhere and felt safe however.

    The tour guide was not very good. She spoke in broken English, very difficult to understand. The language issue along with the street noise and small sidewalks made hearing anything very difficult. Much of the value of this tour was simply lost.

    We walked for a substantially longer time than we ate. Our fist stop for Empanadas was fine, very tasty. The restaurant however did not have most beverages and water was the best choice. Anything other than Empanada cost.. and cost plenty. Do not forget the tip. Lesson learned.

    The main course was a steak house and, I am generous in that description given we are from the USA. The food quality was poor, the lighting was garish and the decor was 1960s USA stuff on the walls. We had to pay for some items and, the tip. The beef was Argentine, not up to US standards.

    There was alos some confusion in ordering. Our guide seemed determined to take our order and relate it to the waiter who, spoke enough English to take an order directly. The guide kept butting in and each time, got it wrong (her English was not that great). Inevitably, the food ordered was not what was delivered. one member of our party ordered the pasta. Well, why one would order pasta in a steak house is a mystery to me and, he paid the price.

    You would be better off finding a nice place to eat our, take a Tango Dinner tour instead.
