Definitely a tour worth taking if you want to see Buenos Aires through the eyes of an Argentine guide who knows how to lead you through the history and culture of the city.
This tour gave us a great sample of the various parts of the city. Anna was our guide and her English was very good and her knowledge of the area was excellent.
We did a one day walking tour through Tangol San Telmo which was perfect introduction to the city. The tour was a mix of walking, subway and public bus. Our guide was lovely, spoke beautiful English and had huge knowledge of Argentinian his...tory and current affairs. As a qualified architect, she was able to provide great information about the buildings and monuments we visited. It was more like wandering the town with an intelligent friend than taking a tour. This tour would be perfect if you only have a short time in the city or as an intro to orient yourself. Couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Staff in the San Telmo Tangol office are also very friendly and extra helpful. Read full review
