We couldn’t fault this tour. Our only wish was that we’d done it sooner! Stella, our guide, was fantastic - knowledgeable and with a good sense of humour, she made the tour so much fun as well as teaching us lots about Buenos Aires. We originally planned to do the pm tour which would have meant more shops etc open especially in Sant Elmo, but also there would have been far more traffic to deal with. I recommend this Viator tour to anyone visiting BA and wanting an overview of the city. Thank you.
