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.

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.
