  • The tour is good, the guide could speak English and was very accomodating

  • The tour was well handled, professional and Patrica was a knowledgeable and personable guide!

  • Our Walking tour turned out into something extraordinary because one of the people in the tour four of us in the group got forcibly robbed with his Rolex watch while we were walking in the San Telmo District. We have no choice but to do a temporary hold of the tour and proceeded to the police station and we lost a total of 2 hours. I appreciate the tour guide's assistance in the process. She was good in bringing us to the important locations that were part of the tour but she can still improve in providing information on these places, and possibly be more proactive in providing more info even if she is not being asked.

  • Basically , while the tour guide was very pleasant, she was not giving us an informative guided tour with commentary. Also not taking us to certain sites to see or pointing out the historical importance of certain spots on our route.

  • Πολύ καλή η ξεναγός

  • Amazing! Our guide was wonderful, really knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. So glad we took this tour.

  • Very nice tour with Claudia our guide. The bus and the metro are already an experience. Very comprehensive general walk, perfect if you have only one day. We were lucky with the weather although, sunny. Two days before, would have been a drama. Clearly to recommend.

  • A must do! Ask that Claudia B be your guide! She is wonderful!

  • A fantastic day. It was only two of us and a guide so we got great service. The best way to get your bearings in a new city and learn the ins and outs of public transport.

  • This was an EXCELLENT tour. Our Argentinian guide, Eugenia, was not only very knowledgeable on Argentinian history, culture, and architecture, on top, she was an absolute sweetheart. She was full of energy and passion. We could feel her excitement to show us the city and make us fall in love with it. We are so grateful to her for making our experience in Buenos Aires unique and memorable!!
    On top, the locations in this tour are perfect. It really lets you get your bearings and see all the mayor landmarks.
