A really fabulous tour with guide Enrique who was so very knowledgeable and accommodating of all questions. It gave a great in-depth insight into the history of Buenos Aires through its various periods of development from its formation to the city it is today! Highly recommend the tour and the amazing Enrique!! Muchísimas gracias!!

On the tour it ended up being just us so it ended up being private. Claudia is a great guide, she showed us the Plaza de Mayo, she told us all the history, then we went through Palermo and we went to Camenito where we stayed longer to know the neighborhood and go shopping, finally we went through Puerto Madero and ended up at the Metallic Flower . Great tour!

Emiliano was an excellent guide. Very kind and patient, he did the bilingual tour without any problem. Very interesting and practical. A good option for those who do not know the city and have just arrived. You are very little at each point, but it gives you to know its history and perhaps return another day or at another time. We thought it was going to end up in the Recoleta cemetery, and it did, but we didn't go inside. They leave you outside at the fair (it was Saturday). Otherwise they leave you at your hotel, if you prefer. The cemetery has a cost of 1600 Argentines and on Saturdays there is no guided tour, so we decided not to enter. Apart from that, which was not very clear, it was an excellent tour, dynamic, practical, and very good vibes from the guide Emiliano and the driver.
