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

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

My boyfriend and I are spending about a month in BA and we decided to take a tour to get to know some of the city. 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

This is a great introduction to a city. Lots of day to day tips which will come in useful for a stay in BA. A good route and use... 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.
