Fernando was an awesome guide! His passion for his city and culture came through. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and came away with great recommendations. I highly recommend this for getting oriented to the city on your first day.

We showed up on time for the city tour. They were not ready to begin and when they did, it was clear this was not an intimate tour but a VERY large group tour. We quickly abandoned it. Maybe it was just a bad day.

Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave.,

They are all good I think. Pick the ones that work best with your schedule. Bring a bottle of water and use sun screen. I usually tip $10 us/person minimum. If the group is really small I'll go higher
