A "Pay What You Want" tour, Buenos Aires Local Tours, is a great introduction to the past and present of Buenos Aires. You'll travel by public bus, subway and foot to see the Buenos Aires most tourists miss. Visiting Abasto, Congreso and Plaza de Mayo and it's the perfect way to get to know the city as a local does. Run by English & American expats, there are regular group "Pay What You Want" tours, and a private custom tour service is also available if you would like to visit other areas such as Recoleta (& the cemetery), La Boca or San Telmo.

Ceri was our guide on this tour and he gave us interesting, informative, and lively information about Buenos Aires while walking us thru parts of the city. We also took the bus and subway to get some more local flavor. Ceri took us to his favorite wine shop, to a money changer, and gave us other good, helpful advice. His... More

We met Quincy as arranged by email in one of the old cafes in the centre of the city and she guided the small group of 4 around the traditional tourist sights in the centre of the city with lots of interesting details about the history and then took us by bus to Abasto to see some of the sites...

I was taking my good friend's son on a trip abroad to see the Foo Fighters in La Plata. We are from Seattle and this was the first time the young lad had been out of the country - we took a 1/2 day walking tour on our first morning in BA. We were grouped up with some very nice... More

My husband and I took the walking tour on January 22 with Cary. First, let me say that we got a very prompt response to our request on their website, and they continued to respond very quickly to our follow up emails. We met at a coffee shop downtown in the morning. He started with a half hour briefing on... More

We did the "Pay What You Want" walking tour with Ceri. It was okay, but I think his sense of humor was a bit too much for me. I also felt like there was a lot of mixed messages about crime and safety in Buenos Aires. It just left me feeling very ambivalent. Some great info and sights and some... More

I am a world travelor and must say that this group has been the best in rapid response and complete response whenever I have contacted them. They are willing and able to give the travelor much information about their home town. BRAVO!

My husband & I did a two day walking tour with Ceri. A delightful young man with a great sense of humour. Our tour was at a nice easy pace, with stops for coffee, the pharmacy, money changer and more. He was very knowledgeable. He recommended La Brigada for lunch at San Telmos. We were a bit skeptical because the... More

This walk with Ceri was informative and helped us to understand life in Buenos Aires. We pre booked the tour as there is a limit of people on each tour. He helped us to exchange money and educated us about counterfeit money. Our 3 hour tour allowed us to visit Cafe Tortoni, learned about the history of Casa Rosada and... More

We not only saw Buenos Aires but we experienced it. We spent two full days with Oliver and thoroughly enjoyed it. Oliver grew up in California and we're from the US so communication was not a problem. He met us at the port and took us to get cabs where they don't charge the inflated rate at the port. We...

My wife and I spent a fantastic day with Ceri. He was a fantastic guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. It was the best tour we have taking in a long time. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
