Carla is a wonderful person, and full of knowledge and enthusiasm for the history of Buenos Aires. I had a brilliant tour of the southern barrios, and went right off the tourist-track. You won't find much of Carla's tour in a mainstream travel guide. As a history teacher myself, Carla's knowledge gave me an immediate orientation of the living history... More

Amazingly detailed and personal tour of Buenos Aires with Carla. Loved how neighborhoods, buildings, and facts were tied together to weave a picture of the city. The Recoleta Cemetery walking tour part alone was so detailed that it would take a visitor a lifetime to learn all of the facts shared with us. The entire tour was like taking a... More

Four of us spent a full day with Cecilia from Buenos Aires Historico Tours. We went by train to the Tiger Delta, then by commuter boat to an island where we spent an hour walking the island. After a private boat ride back, we took a tourist train to the town of San Isidro which we toured. Back to Buenos... More

Don't take a tour delight yourself by walking and wondering around this historic part of the city. Don't miss the fair on sundays which is very popular and where you can find unique souvenirs
