5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

If you want to immerse yourself if these infamous Argentinian figures this your is a must. The guides are very knowledgeable and give you an up close and personal perspective of Evita. Enjoy.

I wrote my final AP history paper on EVITA. This was a thrill of a lifetime to get to see parts of her life. The guide was wonderful. It was just the two of us in a taxi. It wasn't a walking tour, they changed the agenda and we spent more time in the car than anywhere else. They asked us to meet them 15 minute taxi ride away from where we were staying- since it was just the two of us I felt they could have picked us up or drop us off in Palermo (since that is where our hotel was and it too was part of the tour), but they refused. All in all this is a great tour and the history alone is worth it.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

We had a very good tour. Because we had already seen some of the agenda, our guide, Katy, allowed us to skip some of what we already saw and spend a little more time on the other parts of the tour. This worked our very well for us. She was very knowledgeable. Thank you.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2012

For the most part a great tour but you do spend some time getting from important place to important place. Do this tour FIRST when you get to BA so that you don't inadvertently stumble across some of the Evita sites on your own.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2012

4 star rating: Recommended December 2011

Nice trip and the team who made the tour was friendly
just two comments, the tour is called working tour but it is not a walking tour but a tour made with a bus (fortunately because the walking distance would be VERY long!)
also the phone number provided to contact the travel agency was wrong, the emergency phone number was OK, but you can not call it from a cell phone not from Argentina nor with skype
should correct that

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2014

Unfortunately it rained during the entire tour which made it difficult to see anything from the car windows.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2015

Sat on bus for an hour waiting for guide.. She had to get back from other tour and was hoarse. We were only English speaking customers so we had to wait for Spanish info then she would say a few words.. so crowded in the streets.. the Evita museum was interesting but very small.. Had some captions in English If this was the only tour of Buenos Aires, we would have been very dissappointed.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better March 2013

We were picked up from our hotel by private taxi, with a guide for just the two of us (we had been expecting this to be a minibus or coach trip). The young lady did not appear to us to be very experienced as a tour guide, though she spoke good English, and we did not feel that we had learned or gained very much knowledge about Evita Peron from this tour. The tour was also much shorter than advertised, little more than 2 hours long, and we assume this was due to there being only two of us and the guide's lack of experience/knowledge.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2013

Not good if u are not fluent in Spanish. English speaking tourist should not do this tour.
