Lisa was our photoguide and as well as a great insight into the history of the city we got some great pics with Lisa's help. We took the pics but with Lisa guidance learned how to really capture the "spirit"of the scene and we are now putting these new skills into practice THANK YOU LISA!

My mum (an experienced photographer) and I (happy snapper!) loved the Off the Beaten Path tour with Lisa - not only did we both learn a lot but we saw and experienced a side of BA that we would otherwise have missed. Lisa offered excellent guidance, tips and encouragement throughout the tour - I would highly recommend this for anyone... More

My family and I (spouse and 2 kids, 16 and 8 years old) did a half day tour with Foto Ruta in BA. Lisa was our guide. We had a fantastic time. We covered 2 neighbourhoods, learned a lot about the cultural scene in the City, and expanded our picture taking (and editing) abilities enormously. We all had iPhones or... More

I have just experience one of the best photographic tour and training course ever. Lisa is an amazing person, with deep knowledge of history of photography, techniques and of the history of Buenos Aires. She is able to combine this in a great tour. She also challenged me and my friends by using features not often used in our cameras.... More

I had a great afternoon ambling around Buenos Aires with Kicca. I booked the Recoleta tour, but had already seen some of what was on the usual walking route, so Kicca took me to some places that aren't included on the usual tour. I got to see where the rich and famous live in BA in Palermo Chico and lots... More

I did the 'off the beaten path' private tour and it was a highlight of my Argentina trip. Lisa was my guide and she was a great teacher - super patient and really approachable. We walked for 3 hours around Villa Crespo and Colegiales neighborhoods and took hundreds of photos. I wouldn't have found these spots or people on my... More

My friend and I recently travelled to Buenos Aires and were referred to Foto Ruta and we couldnt have been more pleased! With a short time in Argentina, this was a great way to see the city (by foot) and learn how to use your camera/iphone. We travelled during their summer month (December) so it was rather hot (tour started... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our Foto Ruta Buenos Aires Street Art Tour. We learned a lot about taking city pictures with our cameras and even though we were in BA for 9 days, we saw places and things we had no idea existed. Our guide was fun to be with and we would definitely do... More

my day in san telmo with foto ruta exceeded my expectations. the insight into the neighborhood was heightened by lisa's knowledge of the area...and she explained photographic techniques in a very clear and easily understandable manner. the photos that i took that day are among the best of the entire vacation in argentina.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
