We had a fabulous 2 days with Jessica Cymerman who showed us around Buenos Aires, told us about its history and led us on a Jewish experience. Jessica also booked our Tango show for us. She kept us well informed before we arrived, was ready for us our tour times and was entertaining, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

We knew nothing about Jewish history in Argentina. Valeria was an excellent teacher. We enjoyed the private tour after several days of touring with larger groups. We stopped at AMIA and had a “guided tour” that included an explanation of the beautiful sculpture in the courtyard. We walked around the “kosher" neighborhood and the art exhibit down in the subway station. A private driver picked us up at our hotel and shuttled us around very safely and gave us time to see the kosher McDonald's and the memorial at the embassy site. We saw the Jewish museum and attached synagogue. And we would not have understood the Holocaust Memorial without the introduction by Valeria. The 4-hours went by very quickly. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to add an interesting facet to their BA experience.

We were taken to many of the Jewish locations, enjoyed going into a Temple and seeing how it was set up compared to ours in the states. It was more conservative than what I am use to. We were taken to many city spots including a Kosher McDonalds and a Kosher restaurant for lunch which was great. Valeria was very informative and went out of her way to make our trip enjoyable. If you want an enjoyable tour with or without the Jewish Flavor book Valeria you won't be disappointed. This was the cherry on top for our vacation. Could have not asked for better.

Valeria took advantage of the effect of the G20 on traffic to take in the most possible points of interest. She joyously shares the history of not only the Jews of Buenos Aires but throughout Argentina and is forthright about the Jewish community of today and its role in society at large. She is quick to understand the interests, knowledge and background of those she guides such that the tour is instantly tailored to their needs and questions. We delighted in seeing the school where she grew up.
