Ernesto was so knowledgeable and he spoke in a way that made everyone involved and interested. We had people of different religions and levels of knowledge in our group and everyone loved the tour. I 100% would do this tour again. I highly recommend Ernesto as a guide.

I don't usually write many reviews, but in this case I could not help but share. Ernesto gave us one of the best tours I've ever been to. His ability to intertwine the general history of Buenos Aires with the particular experience of the local Jewish community is incomparable. Our group was comprised of Jewish and non-Jewish participants, and we we all equally engaged at all times. His knowledge comes both from serious research and personal experience, which makes his descriptions all the more compelling. Ernesto is also a great story teller, and kept us constantly interested in the development of each part of the Argentinean Jewish history. He was very responsive, professional and accessible at all times. One of the most recommended tours to do while in Buenos Aires.

The best tour guide I have ever encountered. Ernesto brings history to life with his passion, knowledge and story telling. You will learn about the history of the country, the culture, the people…from the very beginning to present day Jewish community. Where do the Jews fit into the history and growth of the country and what is the community today? Anything you ever wanted to know about Argentina and then so much more – this is the only tour you need consider!

We took this tour prior to boarding our cruise ship in February. Ernesto gave us such a detailed explanation of the history of Jews in Argentina. It was very interesting, although a lot of information to process. We visited several locations in the city and he skillfully wove the general and Jewish history together. Highly recommend this tour.

Booked this pre-cruise tour of Buenos Aires for my wife and I. Although the tour had a specific start point, as we were staying at a hotel in Palermo Hollywood, Rabbi Yattah picked us up and returned us to the hotel at the end of the tour, which was a big plus in my view. The tour was a full day tour, with detailed information imparted about the migration of Jews from Europe to avoid the consequences of the Spanish Inquisition and their dispersal throughout the Western Hemisphere. Rabbi Ernesto was engaging and had a deep and extensive knowledge of societal developments in Argentina to the present. We loved this tour. We stopped for a kosher lunch and at the end of the tour we stopped at a hotel for a chat with other tour participants. Rabbi Yattah took all of our questions and answered them fully. I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in Jewish Buenos Aires. While it may appear to be expensive, given the small size of the group, a van, driver and guide, it is good value for what is offered.
