I just loved this... got to know much more of it's history and saw so much of the city center. Gave me the confidence to return on my own to the places that attracted my interest or were on my wishlist! Beautiful city with wide wide avenues.
A very knowledgeable guide walked us around the streets of Buenos Aires in two and a half hours. We stopped at various sights and had time to take in the history, etc. Certainly an excellent way to get to know a small area of the city.
Our guide was great and covered a lot of the downtown area of Buenos Aires. She spoke very good English.
Carlos was waiting for our group at the appropriate time and location. He was fun, informative and interesting. It was a good overview of our pre-cruise visit in Buenos Aires.
This was a good thing to do if you are looking to fill up a short period of time.
Great photo opportunities. Learned a lot about the history of some of Argentinas history and the
Great tour, good way to see the city on foot and learn something. Reasonably priced too.
The tour of my city I was born in BA was fantastic: the guide was extremely knowledgeable about tons of interesting facts and her Spanish is also great!. I strongly recommend it for those who want to see what a wonderful city we have in the Southern Hemisphere:.
Carlos was an outstanding guide and with his knowledge and inside info the city monuments and sights came to life. It's a leisurely walk but covering quite a bit of ground. You don't have to be super fit to do it but need to be able to keep up. One of our highlights.
Very experienced guide who walked at a pace that was not too arduous and gave us lots of facts and information to make our experience of Buenos Aires even more than we could have hoped for.
Great walking tour! Martin was knowledgable, friendly and funny. It was a great introduction to the beautiful city of Buenos Aires. Thanks Martin :)

I enjoyed walking back into the history of of Buenos Aires, Martin made it fun and interesting,he is very knowledgable and expert in the history of the country as far as socially,economically and political,i strongly recommend to ask for him specifically he is the best.
This is a wonderful way to get to see Buenos Aires with an amazing guide who provided much details and history of the city.
We did this tour in combination with the afternoon walking tour and found it to be fabulous. Our guide was personable, knowledgable, and fun. By the end we had heard many interesting and little known facts about the neighborhoods we walked through. We would have liked to walk more neighborhoods with him had we had the time. Don't miss these walking tours, especially if you are a first time visitor to Buenos Aires.
Excellent tour and a great way to see and learn about the inner city. Guide spoke excellent English and was very informative.
Excellent! Guide (Martin, I think his name was) was brilliant. Very informative and interesting and told us all sorts of interesting and quirky things about BA. Highly recommend this tour.
Always nice to have a brief view of a new town, and street tours really are good that way. We had a great guide who knew about what he was showing us and the histories behind it - really enjoyable
I absolutely loved this tour! It has a lot to do with our tour guide, Martin. Aside from the historical tidbits that he shares, we touched on the cultural differences between western customs and that of Argentina. This was my favorite tour (I took 4 tours in all).
So much fun even on a rainy day. This is truley a spectacular city and it so enchanting. Our tour giude martin was informative and funny. Great tour
