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.

It was a wonderful experience in which our guide Enrique filled us with information and took our short trip to Buenos Aires to another level. We got to visit the City from it´s beginnings to the newest and learnt so much about the culture.

Wonderful way to learn about this huge City. Pick up and drop off were on time and the guide took a tremendous amount of time explaining about architecture (which we love) and since we were a small group, everything went really smoothly.

Buenos Aires is amazing even in the middle of the Pandemia. Our tour guide Joachim was really fun
