This ended up a private tour as just the two of us took it. We met at a cafe and the guide introduced himself and we were off at cracking pace. The tour included the historical area of BA with lots of. Information about the buildings we saw. The tour is about 2 1/2 hrs of solid walking. The final stop was Recolata but did not include the cemetery. My only complaint was that we were left there to find our way back to our hotel, anther hours walk.
I just loved this... got to know much more of it's history and saw so much of the city center. Gave me the confidence to return on my own to the places that attracted my interest or were on my wishlist! Beautiful city with wide wide avenues.
It was a morning start on a hot Sunday in January and it was just the 2 of us but I'm not convinced my guide's heart was in it. The good: she was charming and well-travelled herself so there was enough to talk about and she clearly knew her city. The bad: she told me she needed to make an important call which was fine but disappearing off for over 5 mins to make a personal call just to arrange a lunch date was taking liberties. The average: the whole tour.
A very knowledgeable guide walked us around the streets of Buenos Aires in two and a half hours. We stopped at various sights and had time to take in the history, etc. Certainly an excellent way to get to know a small area of the city.
This was a good thing to do if you are looking to fill up a short period of time.
Great photo opportunities. Learned a lot about the history of some of Argentinas history and the
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:.
