The tour guide was very informative and engaging. Also, she was multi-lingual so it was great to hear her engage everyone. We covered all of the major sites in Buenos Aires. It was a great foundational tour of the city. I would highly recommend, especially if you will be in Buenos Aires for a few days

Great way to experience the city first time. Kind of an orientation tour before you actually start on a deeper digging of areas.

This was one of the best bus tours I have ever done. My guide Katy was very informative, without being boring. I got to experience all the parts of the city I may not have visited otherwise. And, what a bargain. Definitely recommend for those looking to explore Buenos Aires on a tight schedule!
