Owner description: A "Pay What You Want" tour, Buenos Aires Local Tours, is a great introduction to the past and present of Buenos Aires. You'll travel by public bus, subway and foot to see the Buenos Aires most tourists miss. Visiting Abasto, Congreso and Plaza de Mayo and it's the perfect way to get to know the city as a local does. Run by English & American expats, there are regular group "Pay What You Want" tours, and a private custom tour service is also available if you would like to visit other areas such as Recoleta (& the cemetery), La Boca or San Telmo.

Great stories, incredibly useful information, good overview of history of Buenos Aires.

Did I mention fascinating stories?

And then he sent me a list of amazing interesting things to do in Buenos Aires whilst I'm here.

Highly recommended!

We met Jonathan at 11 AM at the Garibaldi statue in Plaza D'Italia. He quickly oriented us to the safety issues and that was extremely helpful. We then learned the intricacies of the bus and subway systems and how to use them. Jonathan is very knowledgeable about the history and lore of Buenos Aires and proceeded to take us on a 3/4 hour over site of the city. I highly recommend this tour on your very first day in the city. It will save you a ton of money on taxi fares by learning the bus and metro system and probably a ton of angst by listening to Jonathan's tips on safety!

Jonathan was fantastic. We learned a lot. Afterward he sent us lots of helpful info about things to do, bars and restaurants,etc. And he offered to answer questions via email. This is a great intro to BA.

Do this first to know where to go and where not to bother if short on time.
We wanted to go to La Boca but after doing the trip are glad we didn't. Equally after the tour we revisited Recoletta many times
