Our guide Laurie was great! Pick up was as advised, and we had a small Mercedes sprinter with around 12 folks. The other tour buses were the huge Volvo’s with 50+ people, so obviously more hurried and less personable. Loved the tour. Our guide also suggested a great lunch spot after and was very keen to answer and questions. Recommend!!

Prompt pick up and exactly as described. Small group - 5 pp - with guide Nicholas and driver Hugo. Felt safe, informed, and provided a very good intro to the city. It was brief but just enough time at all stops. Provided recommendations for additional self-guided walking tours, transportation and safety, and additional excursions. Very happy with the overview as it was my first visit to BA, I don’t speak much Spanish, and felt a bit overwhelmed. Nicholas put me at ease and helped all individuals with their requests for more info and seemed very well informed.

When I arrived in Buenos Aires, I walked around a lot and thought to myself, not a lot to see here. Then I took this tour with Stuart as my guide. Wow, a lot to see, do, and such interesting and informative history. Stuart was very informative and had a good/dry British sense of humor. Brilliant!
