Brilliant tour with very knowledgable guide. You need to be reasonably fit as he sets a brisk walking pace and expects you to keep up. I highly recommend this tour especially the informative walk around the cemetery .

The walking tours were great. I did the Best Of Buenos Aires and Recoleta tours with Carlos and he was stellar.

I learned so much about the history of this beautiful city and country and am so glad that I decided to do the walking tours. They are intimate and the guides are incredibly knowledgable and passionate.

I am from Canada and Carlos actually lived in my beautiful country for awhile so we had great chats along the way. And his English is better than mine! ;)

I would highly recommend doing at least one of these walking tours during your time in Buenos Aires. If you don and #39;t know about the history of Argentina it and #39;s a great crash course. I was left with a thirst to learn more.
