I was very excited about my trip to Buenos Aires and I decided to book a day with photo ruta to experience the city in a different way. I had the best day of my holiday in Buenos Aires with phot ruta, my guide Bereissa was absolutely fantastic and taught me so much about taking pictures. I feel I have... More

WOW what the GREAT DAY I had. ..If you have an option you MUST ASK for Daniela to be your photographer as she is not only beautiful and friendly, but also very informative and helpful. Our fun started with meeting in a café where Daniela gave us short lesson on the best way to take good pictures and ended up... More

Since the beginning, Becky and Claire were very attentive, answering every question I would have. The experience itself with Nico was amazing! He was very funny and smart, pointing out details that I would otherwise missed, sharing his experiences as a photographer, and providing constant feedback for us! The material they provided during and after the meeting was very rich,... More

I did the Foto Ruta 'Streetscape' experience in Buenos Aires and really loved it. Not only did I see parts of Buenos Aires I wouldn't have done so before but it was also really helpful for showing me what my camera could really do. It also made me think more creatively about what I wanted to capture and has been... More

Foto Ruta organized a 9 day photo shoot for us in April 2014. We covered Buenos Aires, Colonia in Uruguay and the Puna desert region in Salta province. We have done photo shoots throughout the world, and I can state without reservation that this was the best experience we have ever had. The itinerary was very organized and corresponded exactly...

This was so fun! My husband and I have always wanted to do something like this. Over the last 5 years we have become more interested in photography and improving our travel photos. He has a lot of technical knowledge and I feel like I'm a little more creative but screw up the technical side. Paula was our guide and... More

My experience with Foto Ruta was simply my best experience in Buenos Aires, by far! I’m a hobby photographer, and before coming to Buenos Aires I only had experience in mechanical sports and studio photography. For a long time I’ve been wanting to focus on street photography, but my first attempts were far away from what I wanted to achieve,... More

A great way to see the city with a local, to get new inspiring tips and perspectives to take better street photographs and where to go during rest of your stay in BA. Small groups, really nice and helpful guide!

I work as a photographer and this was my second visit to Buenos Aires. I got to know Palermo last year with foto-ruta on their weekly street phototgraphy and iphoneography courses. I did the same this year with San Telmo, booking a private half day street photography tour. We walked, we talked, we saw sights I would not have found... More
