We did not have much time so booked this tour. Florence R. knows her history! Thanks for a great trip and on your Independence Day too!
The tour was excellent. It was a great overview of the main attraction areas in Buenos Aires in 3 hours. It is great if you are short on time and want to see the highlights. If you want to linger longer to see more in each location and shop then book a longer tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and energetic.
Great tour, guide Natalie was excellent, we had seen some of the city prior but was good value.
Was under the impression the tour would be for 3 hours but was only 2 hours as took 1 hour to pick up all passengers from their hotels. Tour was good though.
Tour was ok
That tour was more than worth the money. We got to see so much of BA which is much larger than I imagined. Our tourguide was fantastic. next time I am in unfamiliar territory and I have an option to use Viatour I will. Great service door to door and I learned a lot from our tour guide
amazing and the tour guide mercedez the best.
