Our group of 5 joined Jessica for a full day private walking tour around Buenos Aires and left the city with beautiful memories. We were lucky to have Jessica as our guide. She is very friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel right at ease with her. She picked us from our B&B in Palermo and we got to San Telmo in two taxis, where we started the walking tour at a leisurely pace. As our group had very little time in Buenos Aires, we travelled around in taxis to our destinations all the time. So we were thrilled when Jessica brought us for a subway experience, albeit just 2-3 stations in between the walking tour. We chatted like old friends with her over lunch and gelatos and had a fantastic day together in Buenos Aires!

We had four days in BA after a cruise and hooked up with Jessica from BuenosTours for a day and a half. Best decision we made on our trip. She showed us the city in a way we never could if we were on our own. We met up at our hotel and after talking about what we wanted to do, we took off on foot and had a great time. She showed us the sites, took us to great local restaurants, and filled us with all the local lore. We can't recommend BuenosTours highly enough.

My husband and I used Buenotours during our visit to South America. Our guide, Jessica, was excellent providing insights and local information during our tour of Recoleta. She assisted us in finding the best empanadas, shopping areas and local restaurants. Highly reccomended!!

Jessica was the perfect guide!!! She had a lot of information to share, but did not overwhelm us with it. She met us at the appointed time in our hotel lobby, asking what we had seen, what we wanted to do. Jessica was very accommodating and wanted to be sure she tailored the tour to our desires.

My husband uses a wheelchair and I can't push him as well as I used to. Jessica became cognizant of this and we went at a very leisurely pace. We stopped often where there were benches and she filled us in on interesting facts for the area. Lots of photo opportunities. Jessica and my husband enjoyed comparing "notes" from THE ECONOMIST about South America economics, Argentina specifically.

We loved the "café" she took us to for lunch/snack just outside the Recoleta cemetery. (I will review this separately). She had wonderful stories to tell about various masoleums in the cemetery. Without her we would not have found Evita's resting place. Many other interesting "characters" and facts!

Afterwards, she found us a taxi and even offered to go back to the hotel with us because the wheelchair did not fit completely into the trunk. We made it back without a problem and our taxi driver spoke enough English we felt comfortable and knew he would drive safely.

Thank you very much, Jessica for a beautiful day!!!!

Never a pedantic dry listing of facts, this was a studied and care~full unravelling of the history and also the (simple and complex) cultural elements of Buenos Aires / Argentina. Lots of fun too.
