I only had a short time in the city, so I needed to see as much as possible in a short time. This tour was a great overview of the city, its history, urban planning, and major sights. My driver and tour guide were both friendly and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone who is short on time but wants to see Buenos Aires.

The tour was excellent. It was a great overview of the main attraction areas in Buenos Aires in 3 hours. It is great if you are short on time and want to see the highlights. If you want to linger longer to see more in each location and shop then book a longer tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and energetic.
