Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Awful, awful, awful. Tour was late. Guide was clueless and we saw very little. We were promised and paid for a private tour, and ended up with a group tour. Temps were 98F and there was no water on the bus, which made the tour even more miserable. Bait and switch. Do not use this company and it's affiliate eco-uruguay and buenos-aires tours. The owners Diego and Patricia are shysters.

Dear Susan, I hope this message finds you well. My name is Sebastian, and I am the proprietor of VIP TOURS BA. I extend my warm regards to you as I reach out. Should you wish to communicate further, please feel free to reach me via WhatsApp at +5491126325799. It would be my utmost pleasure to engage with you. Upon reviewing our records, it appears there may have been a misunderstanding. Regrettably, there is no record of your participation in any tours with our company. We have not corresponded via email, received any payments from you, nor do we collaborate with other agencies. Consequently, it seems there has been no booking made with our establishment. Reflecting on recent events, I recalled a conversation with my esteemed colleague, Valeria, who contacted me under the impression that you were a client of ours. However, upon further investigation, it became evident that this was not the case. Despite my intentions to offer assistance promptly, I regret to acknowledge that I was unable to reach you on that occasion. It appears there may have been a mix-up, leading to the mistaken belief that you were affiliated with our services. After conferring with Valeria once more, it is evident that you indeed engaged in a tour organized by another agency. With sincerity, I must express my disappointment that such a misunderstanding has led to any perceived dissatisfaction. Over the course of 13 years, VIP TOURS BA has upheld a standard of excellence and professionalism, committed to serving our clients tirelessly. In light of this unfortunate situation, I respectfully submit that it may not be entirely equitable to receive a review based on a misunderstanding of this nature. I trust this clarification provides insight into the matter at hand. Thank you for your understanding and attention to this matter. Should you have any further inquiries or require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. Warm regards, Sebastian Owner, VIP TOURS BA

I spent 1 week post cruise and and saw all of Beautiful Buenos Aires. Sebastián was my guide the entire time. Sebastián is very experienced, organized travel guide. He knows everything about Buenos Aires. We walked everywhere thru all the different parts of BA. He explained all the significant history surrounding BA. He also took photos, videos, which is awesome for a solo traveler or a group. Picked me up at the cruise terminal and got me to the hotel. Also provided me a dentist when my crown popped off. He makes recommendations, tailors the tours to what you want to see and do. He knows all foodie places (right down to the best croissants), bohemian coffee shops, back alleys, bars. Even eat where is 80 year old dad dines! He deals with the tickets/any language barriers. Everything went perfectly.

Sebastien is one of the best tour guides I've ever worked with. He is smart, kind, energetic, and very focused on making sure his customers are comfortable and having a great time. We found him through a referral and feel very lucky for that. He was instantly responsive to my messages and extremely flexible in working with us to customize the perfect itinerary. He even answered my panicked questions about the Uber pick-up point when I was at the airport.

On the day of our tour, we met him at a beautiful breakfast place (La Ideal). From there, we walked roughly 8 miles, taking in Downtown, San Telmo, Porto Madera, Retiro, Recoleta, and the cemetery. He knew just when we needed a break, and tailored the tour to our interests (city planning and architecture). He was also very knowledgeable about the city's history, as well as its current challenges. Most importantly, he was a perfect "best friend for the day" and a genuine pleasure to hang out with. We hope to see him the US on his next visit!

Sebastian provides amazing, customized tours - he is really the best and we would highly recommend him! He arranged for a very comfortable minivan for our family of 6 and each person got to ask so many questions and learned so much about the beautiful city of Buenos Aires! We covered so much in just one day with the downtown area, Puerto Madero, Palermo, old churches, the Japanese gardens and had a delicious, authentic lunch!

He took amazing family photos for us in great, unique viewpoints. He helped us exchange money and advised us on where we could go on our own for our few days in BA. He is such a nice person - definitely book with him and you'll have an amazing time, totally worth it!

Sebastian put together a fantastic 4 day, 3 night trip from BA to Mendoza for my husband and me on VERY short notice and for a great price. We had a perfect blend of group and private tours (Mendoza history, 2 wine tours, bus tour to view Mt. Aconcagua, paragliding...) all with pick-up & drop off at the hotel. He is unbelievably responsive and attentive--even texted us at 3:30 am to be sure we were up for the early am flight we chose. He's an expert on BA and offered us great suggestions for restaurants (esp. La Parolaccia) and sights and even helped us secure last minute hotel reservations when our own plan fell through. Excellent travel agent and a really lovely guy.

I had a fun, informative and fabulous time with Sebastian! Nothing was too much trouble arranging a bespoke tour at very short notice with a very narrow window of opportunity during my stay. He even helped with recommendations throughout my stay. I learned more and saw more in our 4 hour tour than I did in the previous 3 days I was in Beunos Aires. Sebastian's enthusiasm and energy is contagious. This tour finished my trip off perfectly! Highly recommended I will definately be using VIP Tours when I return to BA.

Sebastian is the best tour guide ever! We were in BA for a week, and we exploited every second of our trip. He personalized the tours according to what we wanted to do and he was an excellent host. 10/10!!!

If you’re looking for an English-speaking guide who knows everything you need to know about Buenos Aires and the surrounding area, Sebastian is the best.  I was part of a very diverse group of six (2 men, 4 women) traveling together in Buenos Aires.  We had booked three days in BA to relax and sightsee, but, as a group, we also had a whole laundry list of different things the individual group members wanted to do.  Sebastian was a pro -- coordinating every member’s disparate request into a seamless tour.  Sebastian is really reliable, friendly and fun to be around, but he is also a great guide with a capacity to arrange car / van service, investigate all the best places to eat with locals, and the best places to be at the best time of the day for photography.  Over the three-day period we went on both walking tours and van tours.  Sebastian was a pro in explaining the complicated system of Argentinian money conversion and offering other advice.  Whether he was guiding us through an afternoon of casual sightseeing or making sure that everyone on our impromptu bar-crawl made it home safely, Sebastian was always the type of guide you knew you could rely on.  If you’re visiting BA, all six members of our group highly endorse Sebastian for intelligent, client-focused and friendly leadership of your tours.  He doesn’t waste your valuable time – during the course of our tours Sebastian maximized our sightseeing time and we saw the following destinations:  

Montserrat 

San Telmo 

La Boca 

Caminito St 

Puerto Madero 

Recoleta 

Alvear Ave 

Cemetery of Recoleta 

Floraris Generica 

 

Plus a night tour:  Best of Gay Bars which included meeting for dinner at a local restaurant and drop in at a couple of area bars, plus transportation back to our hotel.  For this outing he brought along a couple of his colleagues and a few friends so we had an awesome group.  The lounges he selected ranged from very chic and ambient (so we could all talk and meet his colleagues) to high-energy dance clubs filled with locals. 

 

Sebastian is also very easy to work with before your trip to make sure your itinerary is filled with the destinations your group really want to visit.

I had a great day hanging out with Sebastián . He was very knowledgeable about everything we saw, and I learned all about how Buenos Aires began, and the history of how they became the city they are. It was colorful, informative, and we had time to stop for a snack in a great bar and lunch in a restaurant. I highly recommend doing a tour!
