I did the off the beaten track tour with Lisa. Am a regular to BA and this was my second Foto Ruta tour, and we went to Villa Crespo, which is a neighbour I barely know. Lisa gave me confidence with using my camera in full manual mode as well as improving skills with Shutter Speed priority mode. Went into... More

I spent a day with Daniella on the "academia" tour. I learnt to use my camera (DSLR) in full manual mode and have some projects to work on to improve my skills. It was a great day and enjoyed it very much.

I am a portrait photographer with a strong passion for street photography. I was looking for a fixer/guide that helped me take good street photography/candid shots that could represent the "real" Buenos Aires, rather than the touristy one, so I opted for a private Street Scape. The manager I was emailing with to arrange things was really helpful. The guide... More

As a beginner photographer, I was a bit apprehensive when I booked the tour but FotoRuta tailored it to my ability perfectly. Kicca responded to all my many (many!) emails and managed to create a package that was exactly what I was looking for. I had Lisa as my guide and couldn't have asked for anyone better. She taught me... More

What a great experience this was. Daniela was a great guide around the city giving me background into the different neighborhoods we went in. She asked what I was interested in and would have tailored the experience if I had any preferences but I did not so she gave me a little of this and a little of that. I... More

Me and my partner really enjoyed this tour- our guide, Danielle, was perfect- approachable and friendly and had lots of good advice and encouraged us to look at things in a different way. What I particularly like was the opportunity to really notice things in this very vibrant area (St Telmo) in a way that is different if you are... More

My wife and I took the Streetscape tour through San Telmo with Lisa as our guide. From start to finish, the tour and the entire Foto Ruta organization was superb. Becky and Jocelyn answered our initial email promptly and we got a very good package of information well ahead of the tour. Lisa, our guide, couldn't have been more helpful.... More

This group is a first class organisation. From the time I first emailed to the actual tour everything was top rate. I received detailed preparation materials ahead of time. Our guide, Kicca, was right on time to meet us and took us on an in depth tour of some of the most photographically interesting areas in the city. Kicca gave... More

Lisa was our photoguide and as well as a great insight into the history of the city we got some great pics with Lisa's help. We took the pics but with Lisa guidance learned how to really capture the "spirit"of the scene and we are now putting these new skills into practice THANK YOU LISA!

My mum (an experienced photographer) and I (happy snapper!) loved the Off the Beaten Path tour with Lisa - not only did we both learn a lot but we saw and experienced a side of BA that we would otherwise have missed. Lisa offered excellent guidance, tips and encouragement throughout the tour - I would highly recommend this for anyone... More

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
