Simon ist ein super Guide. Er hat sich viel Zeit für alle meine Fragen genommen und hatte auch nach der Typ noch viele Tips für mich. Ich habe mich gefühlt als würde ein Freund mir seine Stadt zeigen.

Симон беше много добър. Информацията беше добре представена, лесно беше да се напипа пулса на местните хора. Разходихме се из Реколета, около улица Флорида и хванахме метрото заедно. Чухме интересни истории за Аржентина от създаването и до сега. За съжаление нямахме време за да направим друга обиколка с него същия ден. Можем само да ви го препоръчаме.

Amazing tour! Simon was more than happy to answer any questions we had and took us on a very informative tour around the city. I would recommend this tour if visiting Buenos Aires and want to find out more about the history of the city.
