First went for the San Telmo walk with an added touch of a Tango Shoes. It was great to hear about the designers and the some of the local histories about the houses added to the visits in the different shops of design. Had a great time! And if you're here for a short visit I can definitely recommend to... More

This fashion tour through Palermo was perfect! We went to stores, i would never have gone alone because sometimes they are very hidden or they look too fancy and expensive. But it was really worth to get in!!! We visited a lot of amazing stores in impressive "Palermo." We had a lot of time, so I was able to try... More

We took both of the tours offered by BA:Dt and were thrilled with both of them. Our daughter is a fashion design student and we thought this would be fun for her, but we ALL ended up finding it interesting, enjoyable, and educational. It was a real "insiders" view of the current trends, industry, and neighborhoods where BA designers are... More

This is an excellent tour for those looking for a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. The owner operator is Lujan who studies fashion design and she has made a point of searching out unique and yet, wearable and affordable designers. I did two tours - Palermo Viejo and San Telmo. They were very different and that made it extremely fun.... More

I am NOT a recreational shopper, or much of a fashion fan, but BA is known for cutting edge design, and I wanted to see why. Lujan is the ideal guide. She gave a little history and insight into each Argentine designer she took us to -- color, fabrics, recycling, unusual components, innovations, it was great. I joined two other... More

I had an amazing time with Lujan. She took me on three tours while I was in Buenos Aires and I loved them all. I went on the Tango tour, the San Telmo design tour, and the Palermo design tour. Lujan helped me pick out some fabulous new pieces to add to my wardrobe as well as some amazing Tango... More

We met our lovely tour guide Luhan in the bustling design epicenter of Palermo where we were taken to each individual design store. The tour was relaxed and flowing, we really felt that we got close insight into the design history of the city.

I loved this tour! It was just the right balance of gorgeous clothing and information as we toured through stores I never would have discovered on my own. I´m not much of a shopper but I appreciate gorgeous fabrics and well crafted clothing, and I was completely dazzled by the variety and creativity of the designers in Buenos Aires. And... More
