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.

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.

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).

Great tour, very informative. Martin was a great guide and you could tell that he was very passionate about his city. You can ask him anything and he'll know the answer. I'd recommend this tour to anyone wanting to know more about the city of Buenos Aires.

Short Version: Get Martin as your tour guide. Period, end of story.

Long Version: My wife and I have taken a number of the Walking Tours throughout a number of different cities across the globe. We feel it's the best way to really get to know a city.

Now of course the biggest variable on any of these tours is the guide. The guide literally makes or breaks the experience. For the most part with Viator we have been lucky and had some very good guides take us around and show us their city but this city tour was on a whole different level.

Martin was the best tour guide we have had and we have had a number of great tour guides. At the end of the day we really felt we knew the culture, the history, the districts... i mean just everything.

Martin's has a unique perspective as he lived in Canada before coming back to Argentina and can really do an amazing job of comparing/contrasting all the details and nuances of what make BA such an interesting place.

Without getting too long winded, if there is someway you can ensure Martin is your guide I can confidently guarantee you that you will come back to your friends and family gushing about the awesome trip you had.

We had nearly a 3 week trip through South America and this was one of the absolute highlights of the trip (New Years Eve in Rio wasn't bad either).

We had to change our date the morning of the tour and Martin was extremely accommodating. We liked the morning tour so much that we asked to come along for the afternoon tour as well and he fit us in.

What a remarkable experience. Thanks Martin!

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.

The tour operator was very professional and had a very thorough and interesting knowledge of the history of Buenos Aires. He was also very passionate about his work and the history of Argentina and the city. By participating in this tour you will gain a new found understanding of the City that will change your perception of it.

Excellent escorted guided tour. Our guide was well informed, and we especially appreciated his explanations in perfect English. Great value and good exercise to walk the route that was easy for the average person. One in our party has respiratory deficiency, but there were frequent pauses that allowed him to catch up. Doing it on your own is false economy, since you would miss so much of the historic commentary a local guide provides. We would not hesitate to recommend this tour to a friend. Five Stars!
