Excellent walking tour with Elisa
Mar 2020
Spent this morning walking around Buenos Aries looking at the sites you wouldn't get on a main stream tour. Elisa had some very interesting Argentine stories to tell which gave us an insight into the history of B A and it's characters.
I very enjoyable few hours highly recommended .

Beautiful treasures and Fascinating sights.
Mar 2020
We had a wonderful day exploring Buenos Aires with Elissa. Although this was out third visit, we went to so many places we never would have gone one on our own, and learned a lot about the few we had already visited. She shared background information and told lots of great stories so we now have a much deeper appreciation for the city, it’s history and people. If we’re lucky enough to return, we’ll definitely look forward to other fun experiences with her.

Superb tour by Elisa
Feb 2020
My husband and I highly recommend Elisa. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she tailors her tours to the aspects that most interest you. She also is helpful in any way possible, and I really put her to the test with my many emails (which she answered promptly and fully). Although there were only the two of us on the tour, she offered to use her audio amplifier, which was useful given the traffic noise. Her pace was good and she willingly stopped for a snack break when we requested one.

My Jewels Off the Beaten Path tour is the tour to discover the architectural jewels of Buenos Aires outside of published guidebooks and traditional highlights that most tourists miss! This is also the tour for people who like architecture, history, culture and for those who want superb photo- ops. In this distinctive walking tour, we connect some unique spots that are not in the touristic circuit. I’m glad that you enjoy the jewels of Buenos Aires (not listed in guidebooks) that you would never had the opportunity to explore without knowing a local. Thanks for the nice review!

Great insider look at some art, architecture, and history of Buenos Aires
Feb 2020
Elisa is a very kind and fun tour guide. We saw things we would have never thought of and found out about the architecture and historical meaning. The art was great, and we had some good laughs as well. It was a great experience, thanks, Tim

A very interesting and imaginative tour!
Oct 2019
From the moment the guide started talking, she was captivating with all of her knowledge. I couldn't have asked for more. The tour was extremely informative and entertaining. Overall the experience was amazing!
She told me many great stories and answered all my questions. Also, she really knows her business and she is so enthusiastic about arts and history!

The tour was unforgettable and interesting for the whole time! I would not have discovered half of what I did on my own.

It's not some stuffy tour with a bunch of bored tour guides. My guide was funny, charming and full of interesting information and great stories. Love this tour! Elisa is so full of local knowledge which can’t be replicated by the big tour companies. And not only did she know a lot about her city but we could all tell that she loved her city and enjoyed sharing it with me. She also showed me beautiful and eloquent buildings, ones I would never have known were there but now I know would be devastated if I had missed.
She is passionate, super nice guide very charismatic, opinionated and lively. She is the best guides ever!!

If you want to get to discover and all kinds of secrets, gorgeous places and see the Buenos Aires that Porteños keep for themselves, then book this amazing tour of a lifetime!

I took two other tours with Elisa which I also wouldn't hesitate to recommend (and I have already done so) if you are planning a trip to Buenos Aires. Her tours are really fantastic and very good value for money. Her tours will be the highlight of your trip of Argentina and definitely the best choices you can make. There is no way I would have had the experiences that I did without Elisa! I can only say great things about her and the service she offers....Book her unique tours you will not regret it. They are absolutely first class!
