          Nice relaxing day in Tigre
          This is a nice relaxing day traveling by boat through the deltas near Buenos Aries. You see some historical places, have a nice snack and then a van ride back to the city.

          One if the best tango shows and dinners
          This was a fun experience with good food and wine as well as an entertaining tango show. They even brought my wife and I up on stage before the show to take a photo of us in the tango costumes.

          Good relaxing day away from Buenos Aires
          This was a relaxing trip to the country side and visit a small winery. Good food and decent wine. If you have an extra day to kill and need a small break, this is worth it.

          Vegan and still a hit!
          Im a vegan and the ranch fixed me enough food to feed a lion. It was tasty and very satisfying. I am so appreciative of the consideration I received even though I know the highlight was the various bbq meats. Also Leandro was a very good guide. He too was considerate of everyone’s individual needs. Thank you.

          Experience at the Gaucho ranch
          Great experience with our guide Leandro and driver Carlos. The horse ride and gaucho show at the estancia was wonderful. Recommended! If there is one advice, bring mosquito repellent.

          An Extraordinary three hour introduction to Buenos Aires
          We had a limited amount of time in Buenos Aires and our hotel recommended Signature Tours. Our guide, Barbie, picked us up at the hotel and spent just over three and one half hours showing us the highlights of central Buenos Aries. We spent just the right amount of time walking, shopping a little, and getting a taste of the flavor, history, and vitality of the city. Barbie was very knowledgeable, and accommodating, she related well to our entire group. Her enthusiasm and expertise could well bring us back to see more of Buenos Aires in the future. We would all recommend Signature Tours.

          Neat little day trip
          Nice people, cool guide and interesting activities. Although at the location there are multiple small groups so it becomes quite large. Also the horse riding part has no introduction.

          Small group tour to estancia El Ombu
          Our guide Veronica was wonderful! Her commentary in English in the bus as we drove to El Ombu ranch was lively and very informative. The driver was very good, too. On the way we stopped at a working silversmith in San Antonio. We enjoyed the horse ride and carriage ride followed by fresh empanadas and wine, the Asado was delicious. The natural horsemanship demonstration was impressive. A unforgettable excursion in Buenos Aires. Highly recommend.

          Great Tango experience
          Great experience with good dinner. Service is great. It is worth arriving early to get seating upfront. The location is easy to get to and easy to get transportation in and out.

        We only had one night stop over in Buenos Aires and Marcelo was the perfect guide to show us the most in a night before we left. We got to see the important sites like Playa de Mayo, the Opera House, the San Telmo Market and more in under 3 hours. Marcelo was super flexible with our family and our countless picture taking. I would not hesitate to recommend booking a tour with them again especially if you are short on time and only in Buenos Aires for one night!

        The tour was good and the guide very approachable. It wasnt a great start when it took several days to get any confirmation of the booking . We waited 30mins to get picked up and would have appreciated more information before the pick up but the tour was the full 3 hrs and we didn’t feel rushed . There was plenty of information throughout .
