“amazing tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

This tour is very carefully designed and Jonathan's story telling skills are amazing. We chose to do it on our first day in BA and it was the best time we had there. Recommend this tour without any reservation. Thanks Jonathan!

“Great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

This tour was perfect for me because I had only one day in BA. It's fun and informative. Jonathan s smart and witty which made it all even better. And now I know how to get a bus ticket and how to hold on to my backpack :D Recommend it to everyone, those with tight schedules and those who just got to BA because this tour is a perfect start as Jonathan has a lot of suggestions on where to go and what to see.

“Perfect introduction to BA!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

I can just repeat what other people say - Jonathan´s tour is a perfect introduction to Buenos Aires and how to get around the city.
We were there at the beginning of November and Jonathan managed to do the tour with his broken arm! We hope you are well again, Jonathan, and we did use some more buses after having learned how to use the bus plan!

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

I've done both free tours that offered in the city and I can strongly recommend to join Jonathan tour. He is intelligent and knowledgeable guide and all idea of his tour is very informative and different from other. It was a rainy day and only 3 people were there to join the tour and Jonathan was more than pleased to do it in spite of bad weather. He also shares with you great suggestions about the city and places to visit, that are not usual and worth seeing! Don't miss it!

“Great walking tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

I am happy to enthusiastically recommend Jonathan's walking tour - a great introduction to Buenos Aires. He is very knowledgeable about the city and country and had lots of wonderful stories to add colour to the history, politics and culture. Definitely take this tour - you will be glad you did!!! We enjoyed his tour so much, that we asked him take us through Recoleta after the tour ended, for which we happily paid him.
