Below you will find just one example of the many excellent reviews for BuenosTours posted recently on TripAdvisor:
"After researching several options for walking tours for a recent trip to BA, I selected BuenosTours. I definitely made the right choice.
My positive experience began as soon as I submitted my request through the BuenosTours website for a “BA 101″ Full Day Tour. Throughout the entire booking process, the customer service was excellent. I received follow-ups, confirmations and travel tips from Quincy, Alan, Justine and Oliver. This high level of customer service made me feel very good after booking my tour on-line... from the other side of the world.
On the day of the tour, Oliver, my tour guide, met me at my hotel at the agree-upon time. He was a wonderful tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about BA and has a great personality. He made me feel at ease in a strange city and he truly brought BA to life with his stories. Unlike other tours, where you can feel like you’re on a walking lecture, with Oliver I felt like I was exploring a beautiful city with a very knowledgeable friend.
I usually don’t write reviews, but as I hope you can tell, I highly recommend BuenosTours!"
