“We took the all-day, private walking tour of Buenos Aires with Oliver of BuenosTours… we were extremely pleased with everything about the tour… we learned and saw so much.


The pace was perfect, the itinerary was well thought out, the sites were exciting to see, and the café & restaurant were welcome stops. Oliver made the tour enjoyable and educational, and we highly recommend BuenosTours.
