It was a very stimulating experience to wonder around Palermo to make pictures. You look at things with an inquisitive eye. The comments of the organizers were ver useful. Pierre

Spent a lovely afternoon with Foto Ruta learning new skills and meeting new people. We were given themes to capture with the camera and then reviewed them as a group later in the day. Saw some beautiful parts of the city and captured some great photos.

I had a few days in Buenos Aires while traveling in South America and wanted to get to capture specific aspects of the city. I discovered Foto Ruta on Trip Advisor and from initial contact to ending the day - it was a top experience. My guide Arnaud was very like minded and had reviewed my work and knew all... More

I set out to film Foto Ruta Buenos Aires for a news piece on Educational Tourism, and was incredibly impressed with what I found. Buenos Aires is the perfect city to practice photography skills (at any level), and the guide/teacher I followed was top of her craft, first rate, and very personable -- exactly the type of individual you'd want...

The Foto Ruta Clue Tour was nothing short of exciting, entertaining, and informative! It was an unconventional way of learning and exploring a city. The objective of this type of tour was to take different topics and to focus your photos to fit each one. In addition, I liked how each clue made you really have to think and stimulate... More

Loved the Foto Ruta Academia I did last weekend. It was like a photography walking tour of some off the beat locations that were idyllic for photographing to capture the essence of the city. I ended up on my own on the tour, which was awesome. The guide gave me consistent feedback and ideas, which were really helpful. They also... More

Foto Ruta have a tried and tested formula which works. They provide instruction, an opportunity to practice and some critique afterwards. Everyone is on holiday so its a relaxed environment and great way to see some of this city while drawing on experience of others in the group or offering advice.

I had two days in Buenos Aires and I think my time was well spent on the Foto Ruta tour! We toured San Telmo which is the historic district. Our guide (Arnaud) spent time teaching us some basics about photography and how to take interesting shots. We set out for about three hours and saw some amazing buildings and street... More

I recently attended a private street photography workshop with Foto Ruta in Buenos Aires. It was just excellent. Learning from Kicca (my guide) was a great experience. She is a wonderful educator. The street walk of Foto Ruta is very well organised (with advices, recommandations and smart sheet..). It exceeded my expectations. So, if you love photography and if you... More

Don't want your other half tapping their feet to rush through? A great way to have like-minded group to go through a neighborhood you would normally not explore. I had Arnaud walk us through twice in one week. Advise is to ask a lot of questions. He's happy to answer both technical and historic! Cheers JMM
