We spent the afternoon exploring La Boca and San Telmo where I got a not only a great photography lesson but also an interesting history lesson. Lisa is patient, knowledgeable and is so... More

Spent a most engaging afternoon getting to know the intricacies of a new camera and finding the hidden haunts of the Recoleta district of Buenos Aires with my wife and Kicca, a wonderful guide. She brought us to an amazing bookstore (El Ateneo Grand Splendid) in a restored theatre which we would never have otherwise found. Great tips on things... More

I recently spent the day photographing and touring BA with Kikka. Kikka led 4 people in our group--my friend and I and two others. She customized the day to the interests of our group and was happy to share her BA knowledge and experience. She also helped everyone improve their photography. All in all, this was a great experience that... More

Kicca was absolutely a wonderful tourguide. I loved learning about the San Telmo area and popping in markets. Kicca showed me how to use my new camera and my I-phone and we got some great shots. I felt as though I was out with a friend. I travel alot and honestly this may have been my best ever tour.

My husband and I took a private photography class with Lisa and had a wonderful experience. We saw interesting parts of the city that we otherwise might not have spotted, and learned a lot about photo composition and finding unexpected material for urban photography. Plus, it was interesting to hear about her experience living in the city as an ex-pat... More

Started our day with an informative introduction to photography geared to our current knowledge level. The day was specially designed according to our interests and was loaded with opportunities to try new ideas and strategies for capturing that special shot. Our instructor Kicca had great suggestions and helped us look at Buenos Aires with new perspective. This was my second... More

I have been wanting to learn more about using my DSLR and I was on a trip in BA visiting my cousin who recommended Photo Ruta to me. I spent a morning in the city with Arnaud and it was really awesome. He taught me a bunch of really useful things so I didn't need to keep my camera on... More

Lisa our professional photographer was not only great at providing history and information on the area (San Telmo in this case) but really provided excellent information on how I can become a better photographer. However the best thing was Lisa's passion to interact with people (the subjects as well as us) and to find a great photo. I couldn't recommend... 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.
