I had a lovely day and felt like I was touring the city with a local friend. I was able to chose spots and my guide, Lucila, showed me a few of her favorite spots along the way. I set up 4 hours and we stopped for a quick snack and coffee.

That's exactly what we imagined!

Lara picked us up punctually from the hotel and since we had already expressed our wishes in advance, the city tour could start immediately! We did not want to know architecture and history, but a lot about everyday life and people. Lara is very nice and so it was a great day like with a good friend, who did not look at the clock either. We looked at different parts of the city, ate in a typical restaurant and asked Lara holes in the stomach. The day went exactly as we had hoped - it could not be better! Thank you very much!!!

Wonderful reception in Buenes Aires

I was on the road with Petra for 4 hours, they passed as if in flight. Everything is wonderfully uncomplicated, communication in advance by email and WhatsApp, binding, friendly and just super nice. We met in the hotel, then we started running. Petra understood wonderfully how to show me many beautiful corners and to respond flexibly to requests. She knew something to tell about everything, so I am very well equipped with background knowledge about the things that we visited together. The highlight next to sight seeing was our break with terrere, an opportunity to enjoy mate: mate with fruit juice, prepared live on the park bench by Petra - at over 30 degrees it was a nice surprise. I also received a whole list of tips for the remaining days, as well as practical help with organizational matters. I highly recommend this concept and especially Petra as a guide! Thank you very much and continued success dear Petra.
