“An Awesome, Meaningful Experience and an Absolute Must Do on your visit to Buenos Aires” What a wonderfully delightful time! I absolutely loved it. Elisa is incredibly knowledgeable gained from extensive research that she will share with you in such an entertaining way that you won't even realize how much information you are soaking up. She is an exceptional guide, engaging, professional and very friendly, and has a passion for the history she imparts. She really enjoys giving the tour. She introduced me to a Buenos Aires that I had never seen. What I learned was amazing and far more than I expected. Who knew that the European immigrants made such a contribution to Argentinian’s art. This terrific walking tour was culturally enriching, very educational, the sites were captivating and most importantly a memorable experience of a lifetime. I am forever appreciative. You also get to some parts of the city that aren't on the standard tourist routes. (BA is just so large!). Above and beyond anything else, the information I received from this tour helped me to understand the culture of BA; the flavor of the city. This was one of the most interesting tour and I have ever done. My only wish is that it would be longer.... I could've listened to her all day It was just amazing to listen and learn as Elisa vividly narrated delightful historical facts told in entertaining stories you've never learned in any history class. You will have a number of "aha' moments as you learn the whys and hows the palaces were built. I have taken all of Elisa’s tours and they all exceeded my expectations. I explored BA like you would not believe. I encourage anyone visiting BA to include them in your itinerary. Don't hesitate! . I Highly recommend them .She always takes you to the most amazing places, she takes her time to answer your questions with a smile and takes into consideration each person's particular interest. I was also allotted time to stop for photo ops! Before, I always told folks, "You have not experienced Buenos Aires until you have watched tango dancers, sipped wine and eat beef", I now amend that statement to say, "You have not fully experienced Buenos Aires until you have taken Elisa’s tours. I truly enjoyed spending the three hours with her. Don't miss this tour. It is fantastic!!!

This was one of my favorite things I did in Buenos Aires. If you just take a city tour you will miss this different and enjoyable area of the city since it is not in the touristic circuit. You could tell that nothing was “prepared” for the tourists. I was so lucky that no other people were joining me, so it was like a "private" walking tour. Elisa was fantastic, engaging, enthusiastic, sweet, energetic and friendly. She was very familiar with the area and had extensive knowledge of it. She told me interesting stories/history and anecdotes too that made the tour educational and fun at the same time. It was an excellent opportunity to talk about the history and the culture of Buenos Aires. Especially she was a treasure trove of information and gladly responded to all queries in a straightforward, honest manner and made the whole tour interactive. The barber shop, bar and living museum was amazing! Never imagined a museum could be so much fun and at the same time so informative. I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem. I was delighted with the coffee house, the historical market and the other places not mentioned in the description of the tour. I also gained interesting insight into the origins of the English District. The tour took about 3 hours though she said she could take longer as she was flexible to accommodate the needs and questions I might have. It was like having a local friend to show you around. Also, the perfect amount of walking and the dynamic of the tour made the three hours fly by. This will probably be some of the best 3 hours you spend in Buenos Aires! It is definitely a don't miss experience. I had a great time on this tour.
