Lovely tour of the city. Julieta (our guide) and Pablo (our bus driver) were a very good team. Julieta’s English was very good and she even speaks a little French too! She has a good historical knowledge of the city and allowed us to get out and explore a few locations for walking and pictures. Not too much walking, but enough. The city is still reopening from COVID closures, so there wasn’t the hustle and bustle we might have encountered pre-pandemic.

La Boca was super cute and loved the history of this area, Some of the best souvenirs were here and at lower prices than in the city center (Florida Street). I wish I would have had more time to look at the canvas paintings. I think the Boca Junior stadium tour would be good if you’re a futbol fan. Would have liked to have stopped at some the monuments in the Palermo neighborhood but there’s only so much you can do on a 3 hour tour. Sadly the cemetery (where Eva Perón is entombed) was closed due to COVID. At the end of the tour, we were allowed to be dropped off at the plaza near the cemetery to walk around and go to cafes or shopping if we chose. That a was a great option for a few on our tour. Consider that if you take this tour, it’s an easy walk back to many of the hotels in the center of town.

would definitely recommend this tour and Julieta!

It was so much fun it was just my husband and I who went in a private car. The guy who helped us was super sweet and very helpful. It was absolutely worth it because you go to all the main spots because if you try to take the bus you have to buy a card and it’s always full. I will absolutely recommend it. You learn so much about the history of Argentina.

Our guide was Juan - excellent information and was "just enough" (some guides overload you, but Juan had a good sense of how much we needed.
The tour was designed to be in bus for a few minutes, then take a stop and let us walk the streets and experience the neighborhood, then getting back on bus for next area. This was a great format to see the city!
This was well-worth the money!

Excellent trip. Our guide Hernan was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the country and the city. That really made the trip more enjoyable. The trip lasted 3 hours and we visited most of the key areas in the city. I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to explore the city.

Our guide Emiliano was great! Informative, dynamic, fun. We were picked up at our hotel in Puerto Madero to the meeting point. From there we started the tour. The tour made three stops. First stop at the Recoleta, where we visited the graveyard where Evita's mausoleum is. Our guide told us about the story of this cemetery and showed us some other mausoleums that belong to past presidents of the country and notable families. Emiliano was able to make this first stop interesting and fun. The second stop was at La Casa Rosada, The White house of Argentina, from where all of the country federal business are run. At the second stop we also had a great view of the obelisk, the city hall, and a view of Puerto Madero. The third stop, was at el barrio El Caminito. This last stop was colorful, and folkloric with some local artists exhibiting their art on the street.
We had a fabulous time!

This was an excellent way to learn about the history of Buenos Aires and see the beautiful architecture in different neighborhoods. Our guide, Marcelo, was outstanding!! Driving in B.A. was very different from anywhere in the states, but he navigated it masterfully, all while explaining different buildings, cultural events, and even eras of immigration and how they impacted the architecture! We ended our trip with this very informative tour, although I wish we had done this earlier, as Marcelo truly changed what we thought we knew about Buenos Aires and Argentina. I cannot say enough about how incredible it was to cruise around the city and hit every culturally/artistically/historically important location!! When we return, Marcelo will be the first person we call so we can revisit our favorite places in B.A. in the small group tour!

A 2 1/2 to 3 hour tour of the highlights of Buenos Aires. Hotel pick up at the Hilton with Camella as our tour guide. Nice air conditioned bus. Stopped at several places and were able to get out of the bus and walk. Bus then met us at another place. Walking distances not a real issue if you have trouble walking though. plaza de Mayo, the Cathedral there Boca, San Telmo, Recoleta Cemetery, etc. were all covered. Though you would like to spend more time at some of these places, if you only have one day or less, this is a great tour to at least know something about the city, country and its history in a short but inexpensive tour.

Our tour—and tour guide, Emi—was outstanding! We were picked up (on time) from the lobby of our hotel. The tour included all the major downtown areas…Recoleta, Centro, San Telmo, La Boca, Palermo, and Puerto Madero. Emi provided a wonderful balance of history, culture, personal stories and humor. He also gave us some great tips and advice, like “When you finish the show at the Teatro Colon, walk down one block to Ave de Mayo and get some pizza…that is what we do here”. We liked that it was not only a drive around the city…we stopped and walked around the the Cementario de la Recoleta, Plaza de Mayo, and La Boca. At the end of the tour, Emi sat with us and showed us on a map the different places that we visited. This tour gave us a great overview of downtown, which helped us plan our remaining days in this beautiful city. We highly recommend this tour—and be sure to ask for Emi! :)

We had great time on the tour! We were in BA on business and only had one day to see the city. This tour was a great way to see the major attractions and get a good feeling of the city. The tour guide , Carolina, was great: she walked with us, answered questions, kept an eye on everyone and gave great recommendations for food, shows , etc. Safety was a concern in general as it was our first trip to Argentina, but this tour is very well organized from the pick up to drop off at the hotel. Carolina was constantly keeping an eye on everyone and reminding of being cautious. I even managed to buy a great souvenir!!! The minivan was air conditioned ( which is not the case with other tour operators ) and the driver was very pleasant and careful. I am very happy I chose this tour! Great value for the price. If you are considering hop on hop off, don’t do that, by do this tour. Much better and less expensive. 5 star experience! Thank you!

We had an afternoon free in Buenos Aires before flying home. Not wanting to do much more walking we opted for a three hour guided tour of many of the city's most interesting sights. There were 10 visitors in a comfortable and modern mini bus, plus a driver and our guide Carolina. We were picked up at our hotel (on time) and dropped off at the end of the tour. Carolina's English is good and she provided much information on the history of Buenos Aires. Our first stop was at the Plaza de Mayo and we spent about 20 minutes there. I think our favorite visit was to the La Boca neighborhood which has colorful houses and a vibrant street market. The last stop was to the Cemiterio de Recoleta with its "avenues" of mausoleums. It's where Evita's tomb is located. My husband and I could not have wished for a nicer and more relaxing way to spend an afternoon before the long flight home.
