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! :)

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!
We thought it was really good.
Claudia gave us a lot of information, new a lot about the general history of the city, and was able to share her own experience of being Jewish in the city. Good tour!
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.
