This private tour is focused on the history of the Argentinian-Jewish community, right from where it started, when the first immigrants arrived in the 19th century up to nowadays.

The best guide we ever had
Claudia took us on a three-hour Jewish heritage tour in Buenos Aires. Not only that she was a very pleasant and sympathetic person, she was extremely knowledgeable and systematic in her way of running the tour. We learned a lot - also with regards to general history of Argentina and would definitely count this tour to the highlights of our BA stay.
The only thing we regretted was that since it was our last day in BA we could not book Claudia for further tours (since we then found out she also offers coty and art tours). We will make sure we do it when back in BA one day.

Great Introductory Tour of BA
Thank you so much to Florence and Guillermo for a wonderful tour of Buenos Aires! It touched on several main points of interest in Buenos Aires, and Florence was so knowledgeable and personable. This is a great tour to do when you first arrive to the city, so you know what you want to go back and explore in more depth!

Gaucho Ranch (Estancia) in San Antonio de †Areco‡
Best trip I had in South America. Thank you Marcelo :) I highly recommend that tour! It was an amazing day! :)

I wasn't sure, if I should do the tour because it was just me and the guide... But Marcelo, my guide, made the trip to one of the best experiences I ever had. Thank you so much!

I had an interesting tour through the city San Antonio de Areco. Afterwards we went to the ranch (Estancia). The schedule was the same you see in the description.

The riding was awesome (ca. one hour), the meal was delicious, the people on the ranch were very friendly, the landscape is a dream - what to say more...? :)

Book that trip! It will be also an amazing experience for you! :)

City tour
Our guide was Ana Ines. She was totally awesome! She has a great love and passion for her country and her knowledge of its history was amazing! She was so friendly, making sure everyone was enjoying the trip. She helped many of us with questions about other tours and restaurants, and just general information. It was definitely better than a hop on hop off trip we were considering. To night we are going to a tango show and dinner that she recommended definitely a must do to get your bearings on a new city!
