We had an amazing day in Buenos Aires with Kicca from Foto Ruta! It was such a great experience to not only see the city but to also receive some photography instruction as well! If you are a fan of photography or art I would highly recommend you see the city this way!

I recommend this tour for people who would like to get a different perspective of the city. Daniela was great in tayloring the tour to our interests, and it was super helpful to have her advice on how to approach the shots and edit them after, aside from suggestions and advice for the trip. Was very enjoyable

If you are like me and have spent a fortune on a super digital camara without ever learning how to us it, this tour is for you. Great way to see Buenos Aires with a free photography lesson to boot. I couldn't believe how good some of my photos were! Highly recommended!

Two friends and I recently took the iPhoneography tour while on vacation in Buenos Aires. We took the tour on the 4th day or our trip and iit turned out to be a great way to get to know Palermo and Palermo Soho in particular which was great for us since our hotel was in Palermo Hollywood and we had...

I did the street scape tour and this is a great day out in San Telmo-especially for a novice photographer, people who want to take better pictures on their phones or are learning how to use DSLRs. I would mark it down one because I got a discount when I paid, but I think the full price is much too... More

I spend a wonderful afternoon in Buenos Aires exploring the "unbeaten path" with the camera and Lisa, professional photographer. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone who loves photography (beginner or pro) and who wants to get a better feeling for the real porteño life in this vibrant city.

I booked the full day group tour but ended up on a private tour because there were not enough people. So basically i got a 7-hour-private-photo-course for 230 dollars which I think is a very decent price. Lisa is a photographer with a very impressive resume. After a quick introduction where she explained the basics of photography in general and... More

I booked Foto Ruta Buenos Aires because I had an afternoon to myself in Buenos Aires and I liked the sound of visiting a part of town I hadn't been to with a local guide and getting some tips on how to take better photographs at the same time. The tour lasted about 4 hours in total. We started with... More

I wanted to do this activity as soon as I arrived in Buenos Aires, because I'd love to return with beautiful & creative pictures, just made with an iPhone (I'm the dummy-kind of photographer). I would definitely recommend! Learned: to be super aware, be patient, keep it simple & use some beautifying apps. We started off with a short introductory... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
