This was a great way to be introduced to Buenos Aires. Our guide made everything possible to teach us about Argentina´s history and culture. We learnt a lot and Ernesto was of great help. We will return for more tours with Signature Tours.

Wonderful way to learn about this huge City. Pick up and drop off were on time and the guide took a tremendous amount of time explaining about architecture (which we love) and since we were a small group, everything went really smoothly.

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.

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.
