Our all-day walking tour with Chris gave us an excellent orientation to Recoleta, Retiro, Central and San Telmo. Chris is friendly, well-informed and more than happy to linger in the places we found most interesting, and ready to move on briskly through the places of less interest. The Cemeterio is essentially a gigantic monument to the wealthy and powerful. Evita’s family tomb is less ostentatious than you might expect. Moving on through Recoleta and Retiro, we discovered shops to come back to on another day. In one neighborhood, Chris shared an amusing story of two lovers thwarted by a domineering mother, and the architectural revenge taken by the rejected suitor’s family. The monument to those Argentines killed in the Malvinas War is deeply moving. All along the walk, we visited lovely parks with stupendous rubber trees. For me, these living giants were the best architecture of all! We had a terrific bistro lunch at Confiteria Ideal on Suipacha… the empanadas were delicious! Then on to see the changing of the guard at the cathedral that houses the remains of General San Martín followed by a delightful change of pace strolling through the charming San Telmo neighborhood. All in all, a marvelous day-long experience led by a personable local expert who made the trek a memorable excursion.

This customizable walking tour was a great introduction to Buenos Aires. We went from La Boca to Recoleto over the span of the tour. Our guide, Oscar, was knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us a good understanding of the development and growth of BA and Argentina. If there is something specific you would like to see, let the guide know. He was extremely flexible and accommodated our requests. We would definitely recommend this tour and Oscar.

I wrote to them to take a tour and get a generic response saying they would get back to me. I waited. I wrote again and again. Never responded. Very frustrating.

A solid choice for a private walking tour of the main attractions in the city of Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires is a big city and there’s only so much you can see in a day on foot but this was a great alternative to the typical city bus tour. The tour operator did a good job communicating with us prior to our tour date and were quick in helping us make accommodation changes to our tour due to last minute changes in our travel plans and we were very thankful for their assistance with that. Our tour guide on the day of was Chris and he did a fantastic job guiding us throughout the day and giving us a lot of history and information on the city of Buenos Aires. Some attractions we came across included the neighborhood of San Telmo, some empanadas at a local empanada cafe, then towards the city center, Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada, Catedral Metropolitana de Buenos Aires, Avenida 9 de Julio, the Buenos Aires Obelisk, Confitería La Ideal, and Recoleta Cemetery. It started to rain halfway through the tour unfortunately but Mother Nature is not something we can control. Overall, we enjoyed it and appreciated the personalized small group private tour experience to introduce ourselves to the city of Buenos Aires. Big thanks once again to our guide, Chris for being the one to lead us! - Nolan

Walking Tour with Chris from BA Private Walking Tour - group of 6 - excellent communication with Alan prior to see what we were interested in - wanted to do both La Boca and Recoleta so no problem to add an hour on. We covered La Boca, San Telmo the city centre and Recoleta - long day and it was VERY hot. Chris adapted for us we went and was also helpful in taking us to change cash. For those concerned about the "walking" for 8 hours - we cabbed to La Boca and then caught a bus from there to San Telmo and a subway to Recoleta. Stops along the way for water, lunch etc
