Loved "Hidden Treasures of B.A." walking tour! Our guide rocked! The tour was unforgettable and interesting for the whole time! I would not have discovered half of what I did on my own. The tour groups are also very small making the experience even more personal It's not some stuffy tour with a bunch of bored tour guides. Our guide was funny, charming and full of interesting information and great stories. Love this tour! I was intrigued not only by the architecture of our tour but by the volume of knowledge that Elisa shared with us. Elisa is so full of local knowledge which can’t be replicated by the big tour companies. And not only did she know a lot about her city but we could all tell that she loved her city and enjoyed sharing it with us. She also showed us beautiful and eloquent buildings, ones I would never have known were there but now I know would be devastated if I had missed. She is passionate, super nice guide very charismatic, opinionated and lively. She is the best guides ever!! If you want to get to discover and all kinds of secrets, gorgeous places ands see the Buenos Aires that Porteños keep for themselves, then book this amazing tour of a lifetime!
“A Must Do in Buenos Aires!” Fascinating! If you love off the beaten track, and discovering hidden gems, then this is the tour you want! What more can I say, the tour is amazing and a nice surprise!!! It is very special because it is given by a local in that neighborhood! Elisa really does put her heart and soul into the tour and it shows! She is very enthusiastic, very friendly and very knowledgeable. It was a different type of tour and I have to say, it was the best walking tour I have ever been on. Actually a couple other attendees said the same thing. Other tours are just all the usual touristy places. These are not your typical tourist sites and I wouldn’t have found these places myself because they are not mentioned in any guidebooks. She explains so much about the local culture and history but not in a way that like most tours. She doesn’t just tell you a list of facts, she actually explains things in a way that is interesting and you can tell the knowledge has come from passion of the subject. Great guide!! Great tour!!!
So pleased I did this interesting experience! Highly recommended!!!! Elisa is really nice, friendly, personable and wonderful guide who really loves her job and obviously enjoys it. She is the kind of guide who really knows what a tourist wants. Her reputation is 100% deserved. Her interpersonal skills work superbly well in providing a tour which is educational, informative and enjoyable. Her extensive knowledge of the historical site (which had the greatest impact on me) and its amazing history was second to none. She provided enough information without overload. She led me around this eerie place, giving me details I couldn't have known had I visited on my own. She was always pointing out all interesting things along the way and on the murals. The whole tour was full of emotion and awe and I was under no pressure to 'move on'. This gave me plenty of time space to absorb everything and thought gathering, which was important; whilst also leaving enough time for reflecting upon the site and the situation. What is especially good is that you can feel Elisa's genuine pride and interest in helping her customers enjoy their tour. I can say I learned a lot from her. She was also very well versed on local information. . Her knowledge about the city and its attractions is superb. I spent the morning trying to get some understanding of the horrors of the dictatorships while Elisa professionally answered any questions that I asked, providing great information, context and history of both the dictatorships and history of Argentina in general. She told me interesting stories and her personal anecdotes about the time of the last military dictatorship that made the tour very personal and unique. All this means that you learn so, so much more than you could possible imagine. (And there's not a lot of walking!). I have done extensive travelling and I can tell that if you like history and if you want someone who really "knows her stuff" no other experience would be as good as this one. I took another tour with Elisa which I also wouldn't hesitate to recommend (and I have already done so) if you are planning a trip to Buenos Aires. Both tours are really fantastic and very good value for money. Her tours will be the highlight of your trip of Argentina and definitely the best choices you can make. There is no way I would have had the experiences that I did without Elisa! I can only say great things about her and the service she offers....Book her unique tours you will not regret it. They are absolutely first class!
