    This was an excellent tour led for us by Ilan and driven by Diego. During our time, we were able to see many significant Jewish sites around the city and learn about the Jewish history of Buenos Aires, including some of the darker tales you don't usually get to hear. We walked around Orthodox neighborhoods brimming with life and visited two beautiful synagogues! We also enjoyed a visit to the Jewish Museum.

    Very excellent and informative I like Ariel amend Patricia.

    The one downside is that this was excessively expensive $335 for three hours we’re almost every other two hours for the whole day

    We retained services for this 3 hours private tour and feel that this could be done on our own without paying relatively substantial
    amount of money. Actually we have had 2 major stops: at Community Center where we spent over one hour listening to the type of
    promotional/fundraising speech by a community employee my opinion that all info for the tourist with a limited time in BA could be
    delivered in 15 minutes.... Second stop was at the place where Israeli embassy was bombed and we could observe the silhouette
    of the embassy walls on the adjacent building as an embassy was totally demolished and it is now in a different location.
    On the way back we made a few minutes stop at some insignificant for the outsider synagogue and this was the end of the tour.
    It could be easily done with a cab on your own...
    Saying all this I don't want to say a negative word about our guide Axel. He was very helpful, knowledgeable with a perfect English.
    He just did his job but the program itself needs a review/enhancement
