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.

Joy was an energetic and informative guide. She covered a lot of ground In half a day and provided us with a great background of the City’s history along with recommendations for the rest of the trip. It was the perfect balance of driving and walking. We could not have learnt and covered this amount of area without her guidance. I highly recommend a tour with Joy.

Joy was a fantastic guide and the tour was wonderful, you see more than you ever could on your own. She was informative, answering all our questions and making recommendations on food and things to do if we were staying longer. In just 4 hours we covered major sites, tasted some great food at San Telmo market and really got to appreciate the Boca neighbourhood.

Joy of Buenos Aires went above and beyond the typical city tour. Joy was able to accommodate our short time in Buenos Aires with a city tour tailored to our schedule and interests. Her knowledge of the city is first rate and shared her love of the city's history, culture, and cuisine. From a tango in La Boca, to the changing of the guard at San Martin's tomb, we enjoyed tasting local dishes in San Telmo market and ended at Recoleta cemetery for some interesting photography.... Joy made the day memorable. Thanks again Joy.

Perfect tour of the city! We were not sure what we wanted to do and Joy guided us around town and was amazing. We wanted to tour by car because it was hot, and Joy accommodated our every request. We visited many interesting sites around the city and learned so much about the history, the architecture, and the people. We mentioned that we were sorry not to be able to see the tango performed and voila! we were sitting at a really cool spot in Boca with a nice cold beer and a great display of the Tango by professional dancers. So if you want to sightsee by car, bus, or walk, Joy was happy to do all of the above. We stopped and took photographs, saw a few Caracaras (birds) and even saw the mausoleum of Evita Perron. What a great day and what a wonderful tour operator Joy of Buenos Aires is! We highly recommend Joy!

Due to the raving reviews of Joy’s Tours, I booked her well in advance of our visit to ensure having her as our guide. I am SO glad that I did! With another couple from our cruise and Joy, we spent two days touring Buenos Aires and all its various neighborhoods and sites. Joy was full of knowledge about everything we saw and everywhere we went. Her English is excellent and she is easy and entertaining to listen to. Joy added to our visit by bringing us to food gems over our two days where we were able to taste some of the most authentic foods of Buenos Aires, which added to our experience of the culture. Joy was attentive to our safety at all locations as well. Her name says it all …. She is full of joy and such a joy to spend time with …. And we had such an enjoyable two days exploring and experiencing Buenos Aires with her!

We had a very nice half-day walking tour with Joy. And if you are tired of walking, you can jump in a taxi, which is super-inexpensive by American standards. Taxi drivers are just some of the local people you will see that are charmed by Joy's warm personality.

A fantastic tour around this vibrant city.
Insightful and entertaining commentary as we visited all the important places, all from the comfort of an air conditioned bus.

Joy is a Buenos Aires land mark of her own. Energetic, passionate and insightful about the city, she wants to give you the best experience she can and does so by tailoring the tour to what you’re after. We ask for a food tour and she did not disappoint! We went to restaurants in busy and quiet parts of town, trying incredibly tasty food whilst looking at lovely architecture around the city. I later bumped into Joy by chance and she was quick to continue to suggest restaurants and other places that I must visit before my stay ended. I highly recommend you have a tour with joy if you’re in Buenos Aires for a short or long amount of time!!

Should you return to Buenos Aires, I'd be delighted to continue recommending more hidden gems for you to explore. Wishing you wonderful travels and culinary adventures! Joy of Buenos Aires
