From the moment John met us at our hotel, we became immersed in the culture, history and beauty of the city and the country. Without his explanations we would not have had the understanding of what we were looking at and why it was important. And it was a lot of fun! The traffic in the city is crazy and he maneuvered around everything to get to all the places we visited. He never rushed us so we had plenty of time to take photos. It just could not have been better and if you are visiting Buenos Aires, this is the tour to give you the most. John even took us to see a sculpture of a racing car when he found out that my husband is into cars. I think his tour would be good for couples and those with children as well.
The tour with John was fabulous. I learned so much history and saw the major attractions. He spent just the right amount of time at each attraction, and was incredibly knowledgeable and interesting. I highly recommend this tour!!
Harold was a dream. Exhausted from our long flight he picked us up at the airport so we had no worries about getting to know the town. He knew the best place for lunch then proceeded to fill the balance of our day with interesting history, beautiful rose gardens and a local market to get the most unique of gifts.
We feel that we were shown a wonderful cross-section of Buenos Aires on this tour. Our guide John was very knowledgeable and taught us a great deal about the history and culture of this lovely city. The pace of the tour was great...we had an adequate time to tour each stop and were able to get our questions answered. Saw enough of Buenos Aires to make us want to visit again in greater depth!
Our guide John Boyle was excellent. Provided us with a lot of good historical background and was pleasant and not over chatty. We would highly recommend him.
This tour was absolutely fantastic!! John was wonderful! So much knowledge on the history of Buenos Aires. We hit all the must see spots, and John gave us tons of information at each stop. I learned so much from th tour! John was so polite, patient, and helpful! Excellent tour! Highly recommend for your stay in Buenos Aires.
We a great time with our Tour guide John! He was very accomodating when we asked to stop at a few off script places, knew the locals at the stops, and was very knowledgeable. It was a perfect way to get a good taste of a great city. Definitely recommend the tour but especially If you get John!
