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

I and my husband took this tour the first day we arrived BA. It was a good introduction to BA. Richard picked us up from the Plaza Italia and took us around by public transportation, mostly buses and by foot. He gave good instructions of how to use the map and the tricks to survive with public transportation. Richard is... More

I read about this free tour on trip advisor and I was really excited to take it because I wanted to learn more about the transportation system here. I have been taking cabs around the city and figured the bus system may be cheaper and a better way to explore the city. Richard did not disappoint with this tour. He... More
