Cicerones - Are they still alive??

I have been trying to contact the Cicerones of Buenos Aires Organization (via email as well as trying to look at their website) in order to find out more about their free tours. However, I have been unsuccessful. Emails come back as erroneous, and the website seems to no longer exist. Does anyone know what happened to them? In looking at the posts about them on TA, i noticed that they all prior to Feb. 2007. Maybe they closed?

If anyone has any info, please let me know. I'll be traveling to BA on Dec 26th. I'd also be interested in leads about anything similar (free tours with a good reputation). Thanks!

If I remember, I will see if I can call tomorrow and see if they are still active or what has happened.

I have been trying to get a phone number and no luck so far.

The site is down/gone/closed as far as I can tell.

I will see what I can find out during the day, it is disappointing, I wanted to use them too!

Great news! We are in BA Feb. 28-March 6th and have read about this organization. We like to meet local people and learn about their culture. Please forward any other information.

We are also looking for a tour/travel company to travel to outside of BA.
