We (myself, partner and 12 year old daughter) did two day trips with Tomás buring our 5 days in BA, these trips both trips have by far exceeded our expectations and have made it possible to see and learn much more about the city than we could have hoped in the short amount of time we had.
We had planned a trip for our first full day in BA but unfortunately there was very very heavy rain, Tomás met us and apologised for the weather and advised that if we were happy to reschedule we could go the very next day. This worked out very well for us and the next day the weather was great.

For both trips we were collected in a private car from our accomidation. The first was the Boca Premium, which started with a detailed tour of the beautiful Recoleta cemetery. The tour with Tomás was very interesting, informative, respectful and enjoyable. From Recoleta we travelled straight to La Boca, our visit here was something very out of the ordinary due to the super final football game being held that day at La Bonbonera stadium. It was awesome, we had a simple yet very tasty lunch of steak sandwiches and saw all the colorful sights La Boca has to offer.
We also visited San Telmo, Plaza De Mayo and Casa Rosada, every step of the way Tomás was an interesting and informative guide, he did a fantastic job of sharing the history of these places but also keeping all of us interested and engaged.

Day two, Tigre Delta tour.

For this trip we were collected again from our accomidation and driven to the marina where we set off in a private boat out into the Delta. We were lucky to see many beautiful birds on our way along with the varied houses and areas of the delta. We stopped for a delicious lunch at Gato Blanco where the food and the service was great. The whole trip was quite spectacular and again Tomás made it fun and informative and most importantly thoroughly enjoyable.

If you come to Buenos Aries you should definitly book a trip with Tomás and bonaventura tours. My only disappointment is we didnt have more time to also book a ranch tour as well.

We had a great day with Tomas on his delta tour. He was kind enough to accommodate our very last minute request for a tour on the morning we were leaving Buenos Aires (on an evening flight). We spent the day touring the delta, and he gave us a lot of information and a lot of laughs. We had a lovely lunch along the way at the Gato Blanco and ended the afternoon with a peaceful stop in the wetlands looking at the wildlife with Buenos Aires in the background. If we would have had more time, we would have liked to enjoy the town but we just didn't budget out time well enough and we had to get back to the city to catch our flight. Thanks Tomas for changing your day off to take us for a tour!

My son's girlfriend and I got to spend two lovely days with Tomas last month. We did the full day City Tour and also the Full Day Delta Tour. Right from the first email communication, I knew that we were going to get along well. Tomas was very prompt with replying to my emails and was very helpful with suggesting what we should do on the two days of touring. We had already done a half tour City Tour which was included in our travel package, and Tomas kindly adapted his City Tour so that we didn't duplicate any of the sightseeing, which we very much appreciated. Tomas is very passionate about the history behind the City's Sights and he enjoys sharing all of his knowledge with anyone who will listen:) The Recoleta Cemetery was amazing! We could have spent the entire day there. We had a beautiful lunch at Don Julio, which is the #2 Restaurant in Buenos Aires. Tomas also explained about the amazing architecture of the buildings throughout the city. The following day we did the Delta Tour. We enjoyed our boat trip on the Delta. It was an interesting trip going through the rivers and streams. We saw some beautiful birdlife along the sandy beaches, including blue herons and ducks. We had another lovely lunch at the Gato Blanco. It's location is beautiful, you almost forget where you are...not far from such a large City. All in all, we had a truly wonderful two days with Tomas and would highly recommend that, if you are looking for a great day out with a very knowledgeable and very friendly person, who knows an incredible amount of information about Argentina, then Tomas is your man!

We did the Tigre Delta experience with Tomas. It was a fantastic day. We were picked up from the hotel and taken to Tigre for a tour of the town. We then took to the water for a wonderful and informative day. After lunch at Gato Blanco Tomas took us right into the smaller waterways past the various homes there. On the way back to the city we stopped by a great place for a drink right on the water with amazing views back to the city.
I cannot recommend Tomas highly enough for an entertaining and informative experience.
