This was the perfect way to begin our trip to Argentina with a lovely walk through the city center learning about the fascinating history of Buenos Aires. Our guide was personable and intelligent to a fault, commenting on the role of certain places in the national history while pointing out details of architecture and design and offering a running commentary on Argentina today compared to yesteryear. We visited noteworthy churches, plazas, public buildings, as well as hidden spots, and had a cortado break in one of the older, time-honored cafes. The group was small, allowing us to bond with each other. The time spent was memorable, indeed it went by too quickly, and we went away with our heads filled with ideas for the rest of our time in Buenos Aires.
Dont waste your time. Very poor tour. We ended terribly disappointed. I would definitely wont suggest this tour to anyone.
The tour last for 2 hours, the guide was not in the mood to show much around.. she had a terrible attitude with us and considering the price we paid her, she should had put a minimum effort!
Soledad was great and informative. We saw a lot but the tour needed one more hour as it was rushed. I couldn't photograph the cathedral and we really didn't even see it beyond the spot where San Martin's body lays at rest. But we learned and saw a lot. Good walking shoes a must.
