Do the night tour. So worth the cost to see the beautiful structure and then up to the lighthouse for a panoramic view of Buenos Aires. The wine is good too

we did the daytime tour, which the guide offered in English and Spanish. Very interesting to learn about the history/architecture of the building. You also have an opportunity to go to a landing at the top to see some amazing views of the city, and then even higher to the light of the lighthouse.

This is a perfect option for those who want to do something else than a sightseen. The tour at night is superb. The guide was very nice. The wine was good as well.

The guided tour is both informational and intriguing. The tour takes you to the top of the lighthouse, so if you are afraid of heights or small/tight staircases, you may opt to just visit the lobby. The story of the building is mystical and related to the Divine Comedy.

The pub idling is an Argentine landmark. We did the evening tour . Our guide Tomas was very knowledgeable. The views of the city at night were fantastic and it ended with a little wine tasting. Try to go on a clear night. They have also several day tours. You need to be able to climb 6 floors of narrow... More

maybe one for architecture buffs, but the night tour was a surprisingly enjoyable part of my buenos aires visit, you work your way up to the top of the tower and get some surprising views of buenos aires which I wasn't expecting. and you get up close and personal with the lighthouse - and i mean really close! if you...

We went to this based on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The tour is done in Spanish as well as English and was a really cute opportunity to do something off the beaten path. The host was energetic and pleasant and worked hard to insure that we English speaking people understood the dialogue. The piece de resistance was an... More

if you have a posibility to have a view on BA from another tall bilding It is not worth at all to go to this tour. the way the guides tells about the builing and its history let you feel has told the story already hundreds of time, like a responder, without any passion, then the englis is not understanable...

Book yourself on an evening/night tour, and you won't regret it. The views of BA by night from the top are brilliant. There are quite a few steps to climb, but the view is worth it. Super interior design as well
