We had a small group for the Pay what you want tour and had a great time with Richard. He showed us many wonderful places and was able to give us a very lively and fascinating view of the city. The little history excursions were great for understanding Buenos Aires. Of all the walking tours we have done in other... More

Richard was our guide, and we loved the tour, so much so that we were thinking of signing up for another tour just so that we could hear more insights from him about Buenos Aires and his life in Argentina. Unfortunately, the only thing stopping us is we don't want him to feel stalked or worried about his safety. (^_^)/... More

Ceri is more like a friend who love the city where he lives and willing to share its culture by showing us around. Everyplace we went are very... More

We really enjoyed our walking tour of BA with our guide, Ceri, who was super knowledgeable and answered all our questions about BA and Argentinian culture. Doing the tour gave us a great overview of the city, and Ceri gave us loads of recommendations for other things to do and where to eat - much better information than a guidebook.... More

We loved Ceri's tour of the city. He obviously has a passion for B.A. Very well thought out itinerary and great advice for places to eat, things to do. Definitely think about doing this when you first arrive, it's not only very informative but lots of fun! Anna and Thomas

This tour should be on the top of your list to do when you arrive in Buenos Aires. This city never ceases to amaze and Jonathan can give you such a great insiders view. This was one of the best walking tours we ever did.

With jessica as our guide we ventured through the most colorful part of town, "la boca," learning along the way about the history, modern culture and bbq traditions. We are an older couple 60+ but had no problem keeping up because of the casually paced tour and fellow travelers we met along the way

I did a general Buenos Aires tour as well as a private tour of La Boca. Jessica was my guide in both cases, and she was wonderful! The group tour was great for getting an overview of some well-known parts of the city as well as a few of the lesser known. It would be very helpful to do right... More

Ceri was our guide for the walking tour.. He was knowledgable about the city and what we were seeing. Ceri has an engaging personality, and even though it was a very cold day, he kept us amused with interesting antidotes about the area, the history and the people of Buenos Aires. Our 4 hours with Ceri passed by quickly! He... More
