I visited Recoleta Cemetery without a guide and didn't get the full effect- so I was super pleased to do a walking tour with the amazing Rodrigo. He gave so much information in detail on the most interesting tombs in the cemetery. I now understand a lot more about the detailing used on the architecture of the tombs. Saved by... More

Our guide, Soledad took us around the beautiful city of Buenos Aires. Great English and very informed. We saw a whole cross section of Argentinian culture. I would highly recommend this tour.

We took this tour a day after a free walking tour. There was a considerable amount of overlap, however, as this was a private tour, it was easy to ask questions and no issue keeping up with the tour guide.

Great visit, David was very enthusiastic and gave us so many detailed informations on Buenos Aires worth knowing. It was so enjoyable than we've booked ourselves on the Recoleta tour tomorrow morning. I must add than David is very articulate in his commentaries.

I love the 'free' walking tours. I put free in quotes cause they work for tips which are well deserved. I took this morning tour with Martin who was very good. Starts at the Theatre Colon and ends at Evita's grave. Martin provided an some practical advise on touring BA, like getting money from the ATM early on Friday or... More

We have done walking tours in various locations around the world and have always enjoyed the experience so this was of course on our agenda for Buenos Aires. After a pitiful experience with a Free Walk company, we decided to find a good paid walk. The website for Buenos Aires Walking Tours gave in depth information about the places to... More

My tour guide was Soledad and she was so nice and informative! Her English was spectacular as well. Soledad was great at explaining the history of Buenos Aires and she took me inside some beautiful places. Well worth both the time and price!

Odd tour guide. Not dressed in any of the obvious items that she was supposed to be wearing to help us to identify her. Did not wait for the allotted time to see if anyone else was going to join us. Zipped us around the cemetery in literally 30mins... showed us about 5 tombs.. blasé approach... Was for some reason... More

This all day tour enabled me to see a lot of BA that I could not do on my own in the short time I was in town. It also identified areas that I could go back on my own the next day. Our guide definitely knew BA history from discovery to the current time. He talked about cultural, military,... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
