A unique and exceptionnel ride with a great group under the top service oriented guidance of Blas who was very kind and very knowledgeable. I strongly recommend to visit this beautiful city and of course preferably with this gentleman.

Fantastic experience with Pepe (grill master) and Allejandro. Food and wine were both top notch and there's no way they'll let you leave hungry or thirsty. Great value and overall experience!

Good “menu” tour of the city. You hit all the major spots of Buenos Aires in about 5 hours and get an idea of what places you’d like to return to.

Short, yet enabled to get a good overview of the Delta and the people living there.

Nice guide, lots of info, calm driver, everything ok
