Juan was a great tour guide, answered all our questions, gave history on the sites he showed us...lots of time to look at something we were very interested in, and moved us along if we were finished.

Totally worth it, our tour guide was awesome, we went to markets where the locals shopped, bakery and back of restaurants to see them preparing stuff, back streets of La Boca to see al the graffiti art, local bus from La Boca to Palemo that was interesting, they crazy drivers, would do the tour again if get back to Buenos Aries

What a nightmare !! Would never book anything with this company again beware. Never got to do the tour. Our plane was delayed so couldn't make the booking spent hours trying contact them to let them know impossible to contact and once contacted. Not willing to dicuss problem said we needed to pay again if we wanted to rebook. Tried contacting viator to pass on messages and everthing absolute nightmare so please be careful booking a tour with them. You can't contact them by email. Very sad as this was our first experience with people in Argentina lucky we meet some good people doing the city on our own.

While I have been on a private tour of Buenos Aires before I thoroughly enjoyed this walking and sometimes hop on a bus tour. Whereas my previous tour focused primarily on the historical aspects of Buenos Aires, this tour includes many of the social and contemporary cultural aspects of life in Buenos Aires. Our fabulous guide Gisela Reynoso took us to key social spots such as La Biela in Recoleta for coffee and Filiberto Cafe Bar in La Boca for lunch. Be prepared to walk though as we covered 5 miles over the course of 6 hours did we get some bonus time, thanks!. Despite the distance it never felt rushed and the pace was quite relaxed. Highly recommended.

Max was a brilliant guide and was able to answer all our questions about Buenos Aires. He made an effort to take us places we had not already seen and didn't bother with places we had been to already, which was great. Cannot speak highly enough of him,
