Too much time was spent on the bus in traffic. A better plan would be fewer areas but more walking and more Intensive descriptions of the surroundings. The guide was sweet and well versed in certain areas but didn’t give a lot of general information as we passed places. I didn’t feel I got a good sense of the city.
A small group of English people were treated to very personal service and a great day out. Our guide spoke brilliant English, was knowledgeable, very likeable and really put a lot into our day. We hopped buses and walked around the city effortlessly and really got more from the guide than just the tourist facts - she really engaged with us and could not do enough for us.. you have to like walking to enjoy this tour.
The tour gave a big bang for the buck. It covered quite a bit of the city since it included travel by bus and subway to get to the different neighborhoods. Our guide, Carlos, was excellent. The tour was a great way to begin our visit to Buenos Aires.
A very nice walking tour of Buenos Aires. Bonus: one gets to familiarize themselves with the city bus and subway system.
This was quite a grueling 7 hour/8 mile walk with Sylvia ,our knowledgeable, passionate about B A guide . We were the only people on the tour so we got personal attention and a comprehensive experience .Sylvia is an English teacher and gave us a very interesting day . The main reason it was grueling was that it was hot --30 c . A memorable tour in an interesting city, and we nearly saw Rex Tillerson at the Argentine Foreign Ministry! Thankyou Sylvia .
I was really lucky,because the tour turned out to be a private walking tour. Just Santiago and I. So I saw all the interesting sights..,.and my guide answering countless questions patiently. He is very knowledgeable despite his youth. One thing to mention is, it is quite strenuous..you have to walk for about 7 hrs. And it was rather hot too. So wear good walking shoes and drink a lot of water! But it's the best way to do sightseeing.
The tour is good, the guide could speak English and was very accomodating
The tour was well handled, professional and Patrica was a knowledgeable and personable guide!
Our Walking tour turned out into something extraordinary because one of the people in the tour four of us in the group got forcibly robbed with his Rolex watch while we were walking in the San Telmo District. We have no choice but to do a temporary hold of the tour and proceeded to the police station and we lost a total of 2 hours. I appreciate the tour guide's assistance in the process. She was good in bringing us to the important locations that were part of the tour but she can still improve in providing information on these places, and possibly be more proactive in providing more info even if she is not being asked.
Basically , while the tour guide was very pleasant, she was not giving us an informative guided tour with commentary. Also not taking us to certain sites to see or pointing out the historical importance of certain spots on our route.
Amazing! Our guide was wonderful, really knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. So glad we took this tour.
Very nice tour with Claudia our guide. The bus and the metro are already an experience. Very comprehensive general walk, perfect if you have only one day. We were lucky with the weather although, sunny. Two days before, would have been a drama. Clearly to recommend.
A fantastic day. It was only two of us and a guide so we got great service. The best way to get your bearings in a new city and learn the ins and outs of public transport.
This was an EXCELLENT tour. Our Argentinian guide, Eugenia, was not only very knowledgeable on Argentinian history, culture, and architecture, on top, she was an absolute sweetheart. She was full of energy and passion. We could feel her excitement to show us the city and make us fall in love with it. We are so grateful to her for making our experience in Buenos Aires unique and memorable!!
On top, the locations in this tour are perfect. It really lets you get your bearings and see all the mayor landmarks.
