Worthwhile & very interactive... gracias! Ian

I was so surprised at how personal and interactive the experience was. Lucia was an excellent guide, and answered numerous questions about current life in Buenos Aires. I hope to be able to visit Buenos Aires IRL some day in the not too distant future. Gracias!

Beautiful city, wonderful tour Wo

Nicolas gave a great tour on a chilly morning. The architecture he showed me was magnificent, the graffiti humorous, and the Café Tortoni was like being transported to Paris in the 1920's. He even shared a bit of history about Eva Peron when we saw her image on a building during the tour.
