What people are saying about Buenos Aires

It is a nice day out if you are in Buenos Aires. We went during summer time (December) and the weather was beautiful, however you need plenty of suncreams as you spend most of the time walking around the town. The ferry ride was punctual and very comfortable. Uruguay it is quite expensive so make sure you plan your spendings there.

This was really fun and Maria was a good teacher. The class takes place in a very small apartment with a small kitchen, so we all had to take turns with some of the actual cooking tasks, but there was plenty for everyone to do. They also provided wine for everyone so that was an added perk. Everything was delicious!

Myriam is a great hostess. We immediately felt welcome. We were a large group of over 10 people from all over the world. The wine tasting, the preparation of the empanadas and the communication were really fun. And then a one-hour tour of the city. Simply great. Thank you Myriam Absolute recommendation from me.

Fantastic experience with wonderful hosts. Loved learning how to make empanadas & alfajores, tasting them (yum!) and finding out more about day to day life in Buenos Aires. A very special experience with a lovely, friendly group of people - one of the highlights of our trip so far!

Short ferry ride to wonderful little town in Uruguay.
