I don't like carrying a bulky camera, and I've always been a lousy photographer. But really lousy. Once told by a prominent rock star and photographer to get someone else to take the photo when I was taking a picture of a buddy with him. The end result was very few photos of my travels. Enter modern smartphone cameras and... More

I was delighted to find this tour which offers a better understanding of taking photographs while seeing Buenos Aires at the same time. It's such a good idea for a tour! We... More

We did the Streetscape Tour in San Telmo. It was a great way to tour the city a take photos. The orientation in the beginning was a great way to prepare us for our tour. It's great for beginners or more advanced photographers. I am a beginner and had no idea what I was doing. But through the guidance of... More

GREAT EXPERIENCE. It was a "private lesson" which meant I got to ask lots of questions. The guide was great: warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. I enjoyed walking around and taking pics. I enjoyed even more learning how to edit my photos and make them better. I would definitely recommend this experience to my friends and family and look forward to... More

I took a private tour since there were no regular tours scheduled, and it really exceeded my expectations. The guide, Daniela, was lovely and knowledgable and showed me all San Telmo's hidden treasures. I ended up with a lot of inspiration, new knowledge and a bunch of great photos. Whether you're an amateur, professional or beginner I think photo-ruta will... More

I did the Foto Ruta Buenos Aires streetscape tour on the 26th August, 2014, and it was brilliant!!! Nico, our leader, is a photojournalist and took us around San Telmo. I have always struggled with getting interesting perspectives and photos. Nico was so encouraging with stopping whenever we wanted to get a photo, and then giving helpful advice on how... More

Loved this - a knowledgable photographer takes you round the city of Buenos Aires and helps you improve your skill (in my case) and finds good places for you to shoot the pcitures you like. Well worth it - would thoroughly recommend: foto-ruta.com

The gang at Foto Ruta have started an amazing thing. The City Scape Tour of San Telmo was the perfect way to see the area with completely different eyes. Bereissa was a fantastic host and guide. The day was relaxed but full and the review at the end was a genuinely nice way to finish. Great job Foto Ruta! We... More

Learnt a lot about using the camera on my iPod (don't have an iPhone) and a really easy to use (but still wow) editing app. The tour also showed me a side of BA I hadn't seen before. However, for me the best bit of the afternoon was sitting down in a wonderful boutique cafe (drinks inc as part of... More
