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

The Street Scape tour was a unique way to spend a few hours combining a photography lesson and learning about the San Telmo neighborhood. Lisa was my guide and she did an awesome job covering photography basics to me, a beginner, at the start of the tour. We then wandered around San Telmo, applying those lessons to different photo opportunities.... More

I did the half day and the food specific trips. One of these with my 7 year old daughter. We both really enjoyed ourselves. Although we visited the obvious parts of BA (la Boca, San Telmo etc) we saw a new and interesting side to them. Our guides/teacher (Kicca and Paula) were both really great, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, interesting and fun.

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.
