Carlos shared not only his beautiful city, which has wonderful bike trails and level terrain, which made for an enjoyable way to explore the city for anyone who can ride a bike but also shared himself. He gave us a personalized lesson in how he enjoys Mate, lunched with at street food vendor whom he visited for years and provided history, stories of his city and her people. This wa a private tour which made it even more special and he a busted the sites visited to best suit our personal interest. I encourage you not to miss this tour.

What an inspiring way to visit the City. We were the only in the tour and had the luck of all the guides atention, so it was a full 3 hours about Buenos Aires, we got to visit some of the most interesting buildings. And we got to take some amazing pictures of the city.

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.

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.
