    This tour was very good. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We went to Reccoletta cemetary and she not only showed us Eva Peron's
    crypt but stopped and gave us information on other family crypts as well. The museum was also interesting. Worth doing.

    The tour was let down by the refusal to collect and return to our hotel as shown on the booking confirmation form. The impact was that we had additional transport costs, taxis etc.

    All other tours collection and drop off were to our hotel.

    Our tour guide was great it was just a little disappointing b/c when you went through the museum of Evita it was all in Spanish. She could not come in and explain everything. They had an app you could download but none of us wanted another app on our phone to download. Plus we did not bring earphones so we could not have listened anyways. I feel like that should change.

    you need to appreciate Evo Peron and her story to enjoy this tour. I read about it before joining the Private tour guide was punctual, only two of us and helpful driver in congested buones Aires traffic. She did not know BA Chinatown tour in belgrano was included and when I
    told her, she willingly took us to see BA Chinatown.

    This was a great and informative tour! My daughter and I were the only ones on the tour that day, so we had the company of a wonderful guide and driver! We are very interested in the Peron era, and enjoyed hearing about the history and visiting the museum and cemetery! Wonderful!

    It was an interesting tour and learned a lot about Evita Peron. However, since it was me and my mom, we toured in a very small car that was really bad on my knees and hard for my mother and I to get in and out of the car. An uncomfortable ride, but the tour was good. Highly recommend travel in a midsize car.

    A very good tour highlighting difference aspects of Evita's life. The tour guide, Elba, was fantastic, and she gave us a great overview of Eva Peron's life and legacy. We began at the Recoleta Cemetery, to view the mausoleum where Evita's body is now resting. Next came a few brief stops in the city on the way to the Eva Person Museum in Palermo -- which we found very interesting and well-done. After the museum, back on the bus to see the Casa Rosada, the pink house where Evita gave many speeches. This tour was just the right length of time, with the right mix of information and experience, and I recommend it highly.

    The tour was fine. They were about 30 minutes late picking me up. However, once the tour started, it was quite engaging. I enjoyed the museum highlighting Eva Peron's life. She was simply amazing.

    Sat on bus for an hour waiting for guide.. She had to get back from other tour and was hoarse. We were only English speaking customers so we had to wait for Spanish info then she would say a few words.. so crowded in the streets.. the Evita museum was interesting but very small.. Had some captions in English If this was the only tour of Buenos Aires, we would have been very dissappointed.
