Esteban was an excellent tour guide. We learned so much about the history of Buenos Aires as well as some great stories that made this tour informative, interesting and fun. Esteban loves history and had such a wide breadth of information to share that we all cane away so much better informed. We highly recommend you take a tour with him. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Kalon and Sue

i honestly didn’t know what to expect when I booked this tour, I normally take the most popular walking tours that I find on sites like “travelocity” and I have taken a LOT of them in many places around the world. I decided to “take a chance” when booking this tour because I liked the description of the tour and it fit our schedule ( 4 people ). I can sincerely say that this is the best walking tour I’ve Ever taken. Esteban was extremely well prepared, he was very knowledgeable and he was very entertaining throughout the tour. He taught us history and geography during the tour and he even brought maps and props for us to understand everything better! I could definitely tell that he was passionate about teaching us about his culture! He was very flexible with us when it comes to taking breaks and finding places with shade where we could rest. I definitely know much more about Buenos Aires and it’s culture because of him :). Taking this tour should be a must on everyone traveling to Buenos Aires. I am planning to recommend this tour to everyone I know that may be traveling to Buenos Aires ! Thank you Esteban !
