Buenos Aires Bike Tour: San Telmo and La Boca Districts

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The meeting place was not at the Museo de Armas like we were instructed but was instead accross the street by the statue if General San Martin on his horse. We missed the morning tour and had to reschedule with them the next day. We did both the morning and the afternoon tour. The South tour was Fantastic with a great guide who showed us many of the sites, including the cemetary. The North Tour took us around the city but the guides did not point out the sites and seemed in a hurry to get us back. We had read so much about the sites and had already taken the walking tour (Highly reccommend btw) so we knew more about what we were seeing than the guides were telling us and we ended up pointing out things to the others on the trip. (for example, we rode right past the Casa Miminina (sp?) and we asked the guide if we were going to stop and he said no. Then when we got to the circle in front of the Pink House the guides did not explain what the white hankerchiefs were that were painted around the circle or why they were there. We ended up telling the group we were with what they meant (silent protests by the mothers of the 30k+ people who whent missing) Bike tour was a great way to see a lot of the city and I would still do these tours again, just read up a bit on the history yourself so you know what you are seeing. It really was a nice way to see the city in detail.

Buenos Aires Tango Show

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
The bus picked us up ontime. The seating was a little cramped and the food was just OK but the show was great! The wine (also OK) was never ending, so your glass was always full and the service was good. They take you to pose for a nice picture with some dancers that you can buy later. Overall, I would recommend this event because it was one of the better shows in town from what we heard later on.

Best of Buenos Aires Walking Tour

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
FANTASTIC!!! The walking guide spoke PERFECT English and was really nice. It was just my wife and I on the tour so it felt like walking the city with a friend. We saw way more than I thought we would and he gave us the history of many local buildings and sites. The tour was one of the best walking tours we have been on and I would say it was the best way to really see the main sites.

My Review
This was an OK tour...The best part was that we got to skip the lines at Sugarloaf but we were rushed to get back down once we got up there. The lunch provided was OK, but not great. we had to buy our drinks. The bus tour around town was nice. We stopped at the place where they hold Carnival and got to walk around. That is not a neighborhood you would want to go into alone or stray more than a block away from the bus!

My Review
We absolutely loved this tour! The tour guide was the best! He was very knowledgeable. Our tour only had 5 people, our family of 4 plus one other. We have taken many tours from this company, but this one was the best! I recommend taking this tour. It's a must, and it's worth the cost of getting in a hour before everyone else.

Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
There were no lines at any of these events. Need headphones. They didn't go to the Catacombs that was indicated. Also, we weren't sure about the "Walking Tour" piece since we all piled on a bus and drove to all these locations. I now understand why so many people have given this a bad review. I almost didn't book this due to all the bad reviews. However, I'm glad I booked this because we would not have seen these sites without the tour.
