At first you get motivated inhabitants of the city which know good stories and good places to show you. And for sure you get to see the standard sights as well. On top i was able to ask the guides questions about daily life. How to keep safe, where to find good clubs or restaurants, whats daily life there, etc. I loved this as its less tourist-package and more tailored to individual interests.

This tour is a must-do in Buenos Aires. My tour guide was not only knowledgeable but was very open and honest when asked about the political and economic situation in Argentina. He presented facts in a very unbiased way and explained the current situation and how it is affecting the everyday life of the people. That on top of all of the cool information I learned about such an amazing city, made me enjoy it all the more.
