Is a great introduction to the city. You will not only visit touristic attractions, but also you will learn about Argentinian history, architecture, how to use the subte (subway), buses, money exchange rates... information that will help you on the following days in Buenos Aires.

Whether you're just stopping by or looking to rediscover Buenos Aires, this tour is a great way to get to know the city. Our tour guide, Ceri, was funny, knowledgable, and engaging. I learned a ton, and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Ceri, our guide, provided a good overview of the city. He showed us many spots, but also recommended other must-see places along the way. We did this the second day of our trip and have since come up with an itinerary based on the information the tour provided. Overall, an interesting and helpful experience!

I turned up for this free walking tour expecting a brief overview of the city and it's sights, but ended up getting a brilliant, detailed private tour with Oliver. We started near Palermo and took both the bus and Subte all over town which was a good introduction to the city's transport. Stopping for lunch in Abasto we then went... More

thanks for all your knowledge. I would recommend to do a full day tour split over 2 days as there is so much to see and do. It gave us an overall understanding of our location and the history of BA.

Jonathan provides an excellent introduction to Buenos Aires and the means to get around the city. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Only wish we could've stayed in the city a bit longer so that we could put all the info regarding the transit systems to more use. Jonathan has a great personality and a great knowledge of the city and... More

If you're going to do one tour of this wonderful city, then Jonathan is your man. He offers a laid back glimpse into Porteño life in the span of just four hours, with rarely a dull moment. I wondered how something could get such great reviews from everyone around, but I now know why. Simply great - that's all I... More
