    Rosita the tour guide was great and I gave her a large tip. The actual tour was lacking in a few areas . we only visited one courtyard in San Telmo as we walked thru it. Caminito street was a nice stop . I don't remember seeing much in the Puerto madero stop. Plaza deMayo stop was very good and Our guide showed us a lot there. Oblelisco and Avenida part was a quick walk thru. Our guide did a nice job showing us around the Recoleta Cemetary. Would have been nice to get a map that showed where we were walking. During the tour we took 3 different buses to the various districts so it wasn't all walking.

    Carlos, the tourguide, is very knowledgeable and that makes the tour very informative. I had many historical questions and he answered them all.

    Too much time was spent on the bus in traffic. A better plan would be fewer areas but more walking and more Intensive descriptions of the surroundings. The guide was sweet and well versed in certain areas but didn’t give a lot of general information as we passed places. I didn’t feel I got a good sense of the city.

    A small group of English people were treated to very personal service and a great day out. Our guide spoke brilliant English, was knowledgeable, very likeable and really put a lot into our day. We hopped buses and walked around the city effortlessly and really got more from the guide than just the tourist facts - she really engaged with us and could not do enough for us.. you have to like walking to enjoy this tour.

    The tour gave a big bang for the buck. It covered quite a bit of the city since it included travel by bus and subway to get to the different neighborhoods. Our guide, Carlos, was excellent. The tour was a great way to begin our visit to Buenos Aires.

    A very nice walking tour of Buenos Aires. Bonus: one gets to familiarize themselves with the city bus and subway system.

    This was quite a grueling 7 hour/8 mile walk with Sylvia ,our knowledgeable, passionate about B A guide . We were the only people on the tour so we got personal attention and a comprehensive experience .Sylvia is an English teacher and gave us a very interesting day . The main reason it was grueling was that it was hot --30 c . A memorable tour in an interesting city, and we nearly saw Rex Tillerson at the Argentine Foreign Ministry! Thankyou Sylvia .

    I was really lucky,because the tour turned out to be a private walking tour. Just Santiago and I. So I saw all the interesting sights..,.and my guide answering countless questions patiently. He is very knowledgeable despite his youth. One thing to mention is, it is quite strenuous..you have to walk for about 7 hrs. And it was rather hot too. So wear good walking shoes and drink a lot of water! But it's the best way to do sightseeing.
