Ceri was a great tour guide; funny, informative, and made sure we made it to the Argentina soccer game. It was great to learn about Buenos Aires through his eyes and it was nice... More

A colleague an I took the tour with Ceri and we had a great time! If only we didn't have to go to the airport later that afternoon, we definitely could have spent some more time touring BA based on info we received from Ceri.

I did Jonathan's tour and was impressed at his knowledge about the city. I also liked his light hearted jokes. Jonathan helped us get familiar with the city and made us feel like pros with catching local transport. We signed up for a second tour of the Recoleta, which I would also highly recommend.

The part I liked the most from this tour was that Ceri explains you how people from BA live and in order to do that, among other things, you use public transportation. I highly recommend this tour!
