Loli was very knowledgeable, fun and provided an overview of Buenos Aires driving us around and answering all of our questions. Would definitely recommend her to others!

After reading the great reviews about Loli on TA, we booked a half day with Loli and enjoyed every hour of it. I arrived on Buenos Aires 3 days before I was to join a tour group. We booked Loli to see the real Buenos Aires and Loli did not disappoint. The pre planning that She and Anne did was so thorough that the day of the tour is exactly what we were looking for. We started the tour by drinking mate and then off to neighborhoods we would not have seen on our own. Her knowledge of the city and the life of those that live in the neighborhoods was fantastic. We wanted to experience a day in the life of a local and we did. Thank you Loli. I highly recommend spending some time with Loli.

While we were planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Uruguay and Argentina, we found Loli on tripadvisor. With three days to burn in Buenos Aires, it seemed like a no-brainer to hook up with Hummingbird Trip for at least a day. After communicating with Anne, Loli's assistant, for several weeks to iron out the details of our itinerary. She asked great questions, and in the end, we were set up with a great one-day plan. In the process of communication with Anne, we found out that we could stay in a home owned by Loli's family that doubles as a bed & breakfast.

The bed & breakfast was a beautiful home with ample space in the middle of the old neighborhood of Palermo. A delicious breakfast of fruit, breads and coffee was served every morning. Our room was comfortable, and had a patio that overlooked the rear pool area. We were lucky to have had Anne staying here while we were here. She helped so much with our travel plans for Gualeguaychu. Thanks, Anne!

On Saturday, we began our itinerary being picked up by Cecilia and Juan Pedro at the B&B. We toured a local market and purchased items for our cooking lesson. Cecilia and Juan Pedro were amazing. They answered all of our questions, and were very sociable. They were great hosts. We learned so much about making several Argentinian dishes, and were served a plethora of wines. They created a custom menu for our lunch, and they served us as if we were in a private restaurant. We felt this was the highlight of our time in Buenos Aires.

Due to an impromptu protest downtown this day, we were running an hour behind. However, Loli still found time for us to see some unique parts of the city. We saw some amazing street art and got to see parts of the city we would not have found on our own. She gave some great advice that we used to spend Sunday in Recoleta. Her knowledge of the city and passion for its history made the tour special, for sure.

That Saturday was impressive and left us ready to crash. I don't even think we ate dinner that night! Sunday, we spent the day in Recoleta (highly recommended), and went to a Tango show that Anne had booked for us. She also made us reservations at La Brigada. The restaurant was very touristy/cheezy, as was the Tango show, but we wanted to have the experience. We requested it, so it was not a complaint about Anne or Loli.

Overall, we were very impressed with the work they did for us, and the service they provided. We felt like VIPs the entire stay.

After reading the glowing reviews about Loli, we decided to book her for three days to get an overview of Buenos Aires and its surroundings. Loli took us to all of the major sights plus into all the diverse neighborhoods surrounding the City center including the Delta. Wow! What a magnificent experience! Loli 's grasp of Buenos Aires and its hidden treasures made each day an exciting adventure-full of delightful tidbits of information & interesting perspectives of the city. Loli has an engaging personality enhanced by her passion and deep knowledge of Buenos Aires, it's surrounding communities, history, politics & economy. She brings a unique view based on her multi-generational Buenos Aires background, her own life experiences, and her love of nature. Having taken many city tours throughout our lives, we can easily say Loli is among the best. She will customize your tour based on your interests and has a captivating way of leaving you wanting more time with her and Buenos Aires and Argentina. Don't miss the Delta!!

We spent 3 full day with Loli and it was excellent. I always find it a bit sketchy booking tours so far in advance via the internet but all went perfect. Loli got in touch with us and asked us what we wanted to see, our personal hobbies, interests, etc and then tailored the day tours around that. My wife loves horses so we ended up going to the horse races for a couple of hours one afternoon (she loved it). She also loves shopping so we visited many of the local craft markets. She also assisted us in getting some wine to take back home by taking us to a store that specializes in shipping wine (all 12 bottles made it back to Canada!). We enjoyed all her little tips and going to her favourite out of the way restaurants. All in all, we always felt safe and really enjoyed our time with Loli as she showed us her city. A very enjoyable time and we would recommend her fully to anyone wanting a non-touristry tour of the city.
