“Very nice tour”
Reviewed January 19, 2011

We booked a private tour with Jonathan.
The day before we had some contact about our special interests, so he could provide a customized tour. He brought his impressive collection of coins, so we were able to take the public buses.
He came to pick us up in the apartment, we went to Boca, Ricoletta and ended the tour in Palermo. It was entertaining and informative, maybe he should tell a little bit more about history.
After the tour he provided us with information about other attractions in the city, which was nice.

Thanks Jonathan

“Great Tour”
Reviewed January 17, 2011

This tour was a good overview of Buenos Aires. A good combination of walking and riding the bus to get to see a lot of the city.
Since the tour guide is a native English speaker, it is easy to undestand him. He knows a lot about the city and its history. It was also great to learn how to use the bus guide (which is more complex than you might expect). We throughly enjoyed the tour.

“Excellent walking/bus tour - a brilliant start to our holiday!”
Reviewed December 27, 2010

We visited in December 2010 and had a great time on the tour. Jonathan really looked after us and is a top notch guide. Really made a difference being shown round by someone who lives here - his training on how to use the bus system was excellent and helped us find our way around like locals for the rest of the trip! Really enjoyed the visit to Abasto - amazing.

Would completely recommend this tour. Five stars.
