What people are saying about Buenos Aires

Wonderful cooking class in a local's home!

This cooking class was one of the highlights of my trip to Argentina! Shirly is a wonderful and kind person and makes you feel very welcome in her lovely home. I felt like I was cooking with a friend. She begins by making Argentinian mate tea for you to try as well as traditional alfajores, which are a type of pastry. She then shows you how to make both beef and corn empanadas completely from scratch, as well as crepes with dulce de leche for dessert. It is very hands on as you do most of the measuring, chopping, and preparing yourself with her guidance. After all the cooking is complete, you get to sit down to enjoy the food you just made. It was delicious! She also gives you a little homemade book with the recipes so that you can make them again on your own back home. The best part of the class was getting to know Shirly, learning about Argentina, and enjoying great conversation and food. She really has thought of everything to make it a lovely experience! Highly recommended!

More sights, more fun, and even better than we expected!

When we signed up for the tour of the Colon Theater we didn't expect to have an afternoon of sightseeing along with the theater tour. Our guide met us at the appointed hour and, since the appointed tour was full, she bought tickets for a later hour and took us on a walk all around the downtown area. She was a wealth of information on Buenos Aires history and culture. She even took us on a bus ride and showed us how to get around on our own. This was a great introduction to Buenos Aires. We enjoyed the walk as much as the tour of the theater--which was a special experience also.

Best 3 hours you could spend to get acquainted with the city.

Great native guide with good English but passion for her city and its history. The three stops at Plaza de Mayo, La Boca and Recoleta Cemetery were short but enough to get to see other nearby sights and were well narrated. Van was quite comfortable, pickup was early, our group of 9 was a comfortable size. Guide did a great job of pointing out sites in the city as we traveled from place to place giving detailed histories. Well worth the time and the price--actually a bargain well worth it.

Good overview of Buenos Aires and good guide

We enjoyed the core part of the tour. We were picked up at 2 pm but actual tour only started at 2.45. No fault of guide, but a few no shows. Suggest one central meeting point. Everything felt a bit rushed after that. Perfect English spoken and deep knowledge of guide (Patricia) enhanced trip. Possibly make room for a few more personal titbits and recommendations.

Dancers excellent, food very good, tango class fun. Go!!!

We went to the tango class at 7:30 before the 8:30 dinner and had a lot of fun. It was not intimidating at all. There were all levels and ages and you danced with whomever was available, man or woman, at the moment. The dinner at 8:30 was very good and better than expected. The show started around 9:30 or 10pm and was fantastic.
