          Excellent Itinerary in Buenos Aires looking forward to Returning
          Trip February 2024 It has taken us a while to write about our experience but we want to express our gratitude to Ms Elisabet Jeckel. Thank you Ms. Elisabet for everything you did to make our trip so great. We have planned several trips before with different travel agents and I want to say that she did not disappoint us. It was a very pleasant experience and it has been a pleasure to interact with her. From the beginning she inquired about our plans and helped us a lot to refine the itinerary for the trip. From offering us transfers between Argentine airports, money exchange, reservations to restaurants with excellent service and quality in their meals, reservations for an excellent tango show and the excursion to the Tigre River. And many thanks also to Dario, our driver and companion during our journey. Excellent person, very kind, respectful and cordial. I would definitely not hesitate to use their services again on another trip to Buenos Aires. I recommend it one hundred percent.

          Excellent tour with a fantastic guide
          We had a fabulous 1/2 day tour of Buenos Aires with Elisabet. She was professional, friendly, very knowledgeable and flexible. It was great to hear about the history and culture of BA. The driver was also great. We felt that we had a good overview of the city in our short time there. Highly recommended!

          Elisabet and Barbara are amazing. She provided customized city tours and airport transfers during our brief 2 day stay in Buenos Aires, on our way to Patagonia and then back again. Excellent English. Extremely responsive and easy to work with. Fun and energetic! Wonderful experience with this mother/daughter team!!

          Private Tour Buenos Aires
          We were on transit in Buenos Aires. I contacted Iconic BA and Elisabet was very helpful organising a city tour of BA for us. We visited the must places in BA. Elisabet was very professional and shared huge number of insights with us including on Argentinian politics and economics. I highly recommend Iconic and will certainly be out tour agency when next in Buenos Aires. muito obrigado.

          Our very interesting day in Buenos Aires with Barbara.
          We used Iconic Tours for our full day tour of Buenos Aires at the suggestion of a well-traveled friend. We were not disappointed. The logistics of the trip (pick-up, drop-off etc) we’re perfectly timed. But Barbara’s knowledge of the City and her ability to convey it in interesting ways was excellent. Barbara also took time to show us her favorite attractions (that we’d have otherwise missed) and explained why they were special to her. All in, we had a very interesting, very special day in BA thanks to Barbara’s professionalism and attentiveness. Will use her again.

          Great day in Buenos Aires
          We had a wonderful custom tour of Buenos Aires with Barbara. She made flawless arrangements to pick us up at one airport in the morning and drop us off another airport in the evening after an interesting day exploring the city, including a stop at a delicious restaurant. She is very knowledgable and gave us a unique window into the daily life of a "porteno"!

          Perfect Private Tour
          After spending 9 hours with Barbara, I now feel I have a friend forever in Buenos Aires. I interviewed numerous private guides and Barbara stood above all the rest, as evidenced by her service when we arrived in BA. She and our private driver waited on our late arrival, ready with the AC car and bottled water. It was a relaxing introduction after a long flight. While we had pre-selected some sites. Barbara was quick to adjust the itinerary based on traffic, crowds, and our delay. It all went smooth. In fact, we covered what is normally done in 2-3 days in under 7 hours, and NEVER felt rushed. She knew exactly how to adapt. As for her knowledge, WOW! She was a wealth of knowledge and I wish I had recorded everything. Barbara knows exactly how to balance pace and information. Not too fast and not too long. She never bored us with information, but kept us moving with the perfect amount of information. When breaks were needed she know exactly what to do. I made two adjustments to the itinerary based on seeing some sites. She adapted like a pro. As someone who uses guides all the time, I would rank Barbara among the best. I wish I had more days to spend with her.

          Excellent Customer Service and Response Time
          We have booked a tour for January 2023. We have NOT gone on the tour yet. We were referred to this Mother / Daughter team from others that had booked them in the past. What I want to say now, before the tour, is that they are extremely responsive, and have been helpful with other questions about travelling to Buenos Aires. Our experience with this team is great so far. Will post review once we have taken the tour!

          Wonderful Iconic Buenos Aires
          We highly recommend Elisabet & Barbara! So lovely& easy to spend the whole day together. Their knowledge is above par & very easy to understand. We did both all day Buenos Aires tour & Gaucho tour at Estancia El Ombu…a smaller group setting than large bus tours. You cannot go wrong with Iconic Buenos Aires.

          Great day trip to the Tigre Delta
          When I inquired about the Tigre Delta tour Elisabet suggested to take the train because I was by myself. I really enjoyed traveling like the locals. It made for a very unhurried and relaxing trip. Elisabet is a wonderful guide with plenty of information on the unique lifestyle in the Delta. It felt as if I was traveling with a friend.

          Different way of life
          An excursion away from the crowded city center at the tiger delta. A glimpse of a different way of life. Beautiful scenery and houses. According to the guide you should avoid it during the weekends.

        We embarked on a cruise to Antarctica late December that began in Buenos Aires with a charter flight to Ushuaia and would end back in Buenos Aires. We decided to spend additional days in Buenos Aires after the cruise and looked for recommendations for private tours.

        We actually heard about this Mother/Daughter team through another site that is dedicated to cruise discussions. The recommendation for Iconic Buenos Aires came from a past guest on the same cruise.

        We contacted Elisabet through their website and she quickly came back with recommendations for us. We decided to book the full day city tour.

        This was absolutely the best decision for an amazing introduction to this city. The tour was conducted in a comfortable van with lots of leg room and Elisabet commentated as we drove. There was a very nice balance of driving and stops where we walked around different neighbourhoods. The tour exceeded our expectations and we visited places and learned history that we would not have otherwise been aware of.

        Elisabet knows of little hidden gems that you would walk by and never experience. This is the value of a private tour like this and someone so knowledgeable of their city and country.

        Elisabet has also arranged a dinner and Tango show two days from now for us and we will come back with a review of this too!

        We loved this tour and this was a day well spent.

        Thank you Elisabet!

        We highly recommend this Mother / Daughter team!

        Four of us had a wonderful experience touring the beautiful city of Buenos Aires with Barbara of Iconic Buenos Aires. She and our driver Daniel were prompt to pick us up at the cruise terminal and the day just kept getting better as time went on. Her knowledge of her city was outstanding and she had a very comfortable and easy manner that made the tour even better. We saw many parts of the city and leaned much of the history. We even had lunch in a spot not frequented by tourists, something that would not have been possible on our own!
        We would definitely use Iconic Buenos Aires again and recommend it fully to future travelers!

        Elisabet is the perfect guide to the beauties and treasures of Buenos Aires and its environs. Before our arrival, Elisabet made great recommendations about sites and activities and helped shape our 10-day visit to the city. From the moment of arrival, she facilitated transportation, currency exchange, and a magisterial tour of the various neighborhoods, explaining its history, geography, arts, and architecture. Elisabet organized a wonderful wine tasting expedition to the Gamboa vineyards. She also introduced us to the tranquility and joys of island exploration in the Tigre Delta. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and anticipates every possible need. She made our first visit to Argentina magical. You will not find a better guide to the wonders of this glorious city.

        We have just spent an amazing day with Elisabet on a full day tour of Buenos Aires. She is the most knowledgeable tour guide I have ever used and her knowledge of the city is amazing. You will see all of the highlights of the city but with an added depth of knowledge that no group tour can provide. We also had an excellent lunch at a local’s restaurant which we would have never find on our own. Highly recommend Elisabet and Iconic Buenos Aires!

        We spent the day with Barbara exploring many of the colorful neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. She tailored the day so we could explore areas beyond the walking area of our hotel. Barbara is friendly, courteous, intelligent, informative, and gives you an insider's view of spots we would never have found on our own, adding interesting tidbits about the history and culture. The pre-communications with Elizabet were always prompt and specific, and she worked with us to create the perfect day to meet our needs. Our driver Jorge was an excellent, safe, friendly, courteous driver. I really feel like we got a great overview of the best Buenos Aires has to offer. I highly recommend Tours by Iconic Buenos Aires.

        I truly cannot say enough good things about this day tour. Elizabet is so knowledgeable about her city and it's easy to see how much she loves it. She showed us the highlights (La Boca, Puerto Madero), but also took us off the beaten path. One of the highlights of the day was a bookstore built in an old theater. We never could have found that on our own. We also really enjoyed spending time at the Recoleta Cemetery. I highly recommend booking with Elizabet!

        There were a few favorite aspects of the tour: 1) I enjoyed the private tour with customized service and attention to detail 2) I enjoyed the in-depth conversations, answers to my many questions and the knowledge that I gained from a knowledgeable and professional guide. 3) I enjoyed Barbara’s genuine, friendly, and helpful nature. My recommendation to future travelers is book your tour with Iconic Buenos Aires

        Exploring Buenos Aires with Elisabet was amazing! We booked a full day tour and loved every minute of it. We saw all the "must see" places, with in depth commentary from Elisabet, which was delightful.
        What I hadn't expected was the extra places she took us, based on our interests. We had a marvelous lunch at Buenos Aires Grill while watching the World Cup. When I mentioned I'd like to purchase a very nice leather bag, she took me to a shop where I found exactly what I'd hope for. Later in the day we went into a lovely antique shop, where I found darling penguin bar pitchers. I wanted to purchase books in Spanish for my 4 year old granddaughter, so she took us to the most remarkable and beautiful bookstore I've ever seen. It was once a theater and is quite beautiful.
        Every aspect of our day was perfect. I was amazed how our driver was just around the corner every where we went.
        Though we enjoyed our time exploring Buenos Aires on our own, the time with Elisabet far surpassed anything we might have seen without her.
        I can't recommend Iconic Buenos Aires highly enough. Should I be fortunate enough to return to Buenos Aires, I will certainly contact Elisabet again.

        We hired Elizabet to give us an introductory tour of Buenos Aires. She has a great knowledge for the city ranging from history to culture for every bario! It was the perfect introduction and she continued to give us guidance through the remainder of the trip. It was the perfect start to our vacation. We highly recommend her.
