Our guide Christian was fantastic, so knowledgeable, entertaining and courteous. He picked up on his car and dropped us right by the different sights. This was great for us as my dad has mobility issues. Buenos Aires is a beautiful, interesting and fascinating city and this tour is a wonderful way to get an overview of the city, main sights and history.

Carolina was brilliant as a guide. So knowledgeable about the city, the architecture and the history. We went to some great locations and felt safe the whole time. Well organised from start to finish. One of the best things I have done in South America.
