What an inspiring way to visit the City. We were the only in the tour and had the luck of all the guides atention, so it was a full 3 hours about Buenos Aires, we got to visit some of the most interesting buildings. And we got to take some amazing pictures of the city.

This was a great way to be introduced to Buenos Aires. Our guide made everything possible to teach us about Argentina´s history and culture. We learnt a lot and Ernesto was of great help. We will return for more tours with Signature Tours.
