Rodney RosenblumUnited States
Mirta organized a wonderful tour of many highlights of Buenos Aires. She was a great tour guide and was full of very interesting information. We would highly recommend Mirta! Lovely person!
Kieron KingUnited Kingdom
We enjoyed Mirta's tour very much. She met the four of us from our cruise ship and took us to some of the more interesting off the beaten track places in Buenos Aires. We walked and also used the train, which was a very effective way of travelling around. Mirta was interesting and obviously a very experienced guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Kieron, thank you very much for your comments!! I like to hear that you, your wife and friends have liked the tour. I had a great time with the four of you too. Kind regards from B.A. Mirta
Carlo MiglioriniUnited States
Carlo and I have travelled to 54 countries around the world and Mirta is definitely top 5%. Her in depth knowledge of history and English, peppered with local stories and driver Ruben made the two days in Buenos Aires in February 2020 an extraordinary experience! Because of Carnivale, driver Ruben went out of the way to allow us to see sights where streets were closed. In addition to the neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, we were able to see local markets and artisan fairs.
Julie SnowUnited Kingdom
We've just had a wonderful day with Mirta. She is so knowledgeable about Buenos Aires and its history and culture, we learnt so much. The tour with her driver took us to all the highlights of the city including San Telmo and Boca where we walked all around, so interesting. Later we visited Ricoleta which was fascinating and then Palermo through all its beautiful parks and green spaces. Mirta is a charming host who we highly recommend.
John CarterUnited Kingdom
We had a fantastic time. Mirta is a wonderful guide, we came away with a terrific view of Buenos Aries. We learnt about the places we saw and really developed a feeling for the city. It was like being in Europe but with tango added. Lunch with dancers and food was fantastic. Mirta was really flexible adapting to our wishes and needs needs seamlessly. We really got on with Mirta, she gave us a 5* tour.
Jeffrey NelsonUnited States
Mirta is a smart, interesting and delightful guide. On our first day in BA we saw the famous highlights of the city. But on Day Two with Mirta, we got a more "insider" tour, complete with info about daily life. She has the passion of a tango dancer... because she is one! Beautiful stops in La Boca and Belgrano bookended a BIG day. Highly recommend!
Anthony YingUnited States
Mirta is a very knowledgeable guide of BA and Argentina in general. We were a group of 6 and had a wonderful and efficient time seeing all the major sights in BA on this 7 hour tour. Highly recommend Mirta to future visitors of any age.
Pippa DanielsUnited Kingdom
We had a fabulous day with Mirta, which we will never forget. She showed us so much of the beautiful city of Buenos Aires and made the tour so interesting. We really enjoyed her company and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
Jane McArthurParaparaumu, NEW ZEALAND, New Zealand
Mirta was ready for us when we disembarked.Good clean transport.Mirta was very knowledgeable about her country. The only disadvantage was our boat trip was with Spanish speaking peoples which meant Mirta had to keep translating a d commentating, a d when we were in several rows on the ship, which made it difficult for her. We could perhaps also had longer at the market to look around as we were back in the city early, but Mirta then showed us around some of the sights of Buenos Aires. Would recommend

The tour with Mirta was a lovely morning spent exploring Buenos Aires from a new perspective. She was a delightful hostess and thoughtful guide. Ask her about the tango!
Karen Burgess-KohnUnited States
If I could give a rating higher than 5, I would for MIrta and the tour she planned. Mirta was very delightful to be with, she made us feel like family for a day. All the stops were interesting and she was very informative. We laughed and had so much fun in such a lovely city.
Kimberly RickelsUnited States
I had a lovely time with Mirta. She is very knowledgeable and fun to be with. I learned a lot with her and would recommend her for visitors to Buenos Aires. If you're interested in tango, she really knows the art form!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kimberley. Thank you so much for your nice review! I had a great time with you too, you made everything easy. Thank you again. Regards from B.A
Margaret PlatteUnited States
Mirta is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who fit well with my personality, but not nearly as well with my husband. The day was good, but it seemed that we spent a lot of time waiting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Margaret Thank you so much for your nice words to me! Im so sorry if you had to wait, but as It os set in the description of the tour, the boat trip is by public boat and it leaves every hour and some time we have to wait for the next boat (we wait visiting the fruit market, not forming a line). Of course we have the option of a private boat bit it is more expensive. Kind regards
Irvine RodgerUnited Kingdom
Mirta was informative and she met our wishes perfectly. Well done.
David ShawverUnited States
Our tour of Buenos Aries with Mirta was fabulous. She was prompt and her driver was skilled and very safe.

Mirta was very knowledgeable and friendly, and so good with our daughter.
Ferenc PallerUnited States
Mirta is great!! We had a wonderful day in Buenos Aires. She perfectly organised it, so we could see as much as possible but at our own pace. We learnt a lot. We especially appreciated the discussions about everyday life, how Portenos (now we know...) live and think.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ferenc and family. You were great!! I had a good time with you too. Thank you very much for your comments, I appreciate them so much. Kindly regards from B.A
Kathleen WilsonUnited States
Mirta is an excellent guide. She adjusted the tour to our preferences and was well organized in executing the tour from start to finish. Mirta has a very engaging personality, deep knowledge of the city's history and unique characteristics. She also shared with us fascinating information about the Tango. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with her and her excellent driver Alberto. Highly recommend Mirta!
Peter MarshallNew Zealand
Great you're a very good guide
Janet KuzioUnited States
Mirta was a great guide. She was early to pick us up at the hotel with her driver, Maria. She took us up to El Tigre with a couple stops on the way. On the way back we stopped at El Retiro Park for pictures and some interesting stories. Mirta is also a tango teacher and conducts tango tours too. While we were in the car she gave us the background on this dance along with a lot of historical and cultural information. We reccomend Mirta unconditionally
Nina KatzUnited States
Jaclyn WaryaszUnited States
Mirta was a fantastic guide. She was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. She paced the tour very well making sure we missed most of the traffic. And she was flexible with our schedule - allowing enough time for a snack, photos and a little shopping.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Jaclyn and Tom!!! Happy birthday for both of you! Thank you very much for your nice words. Enjoy your holidays
Brian SudyUnited States
Mirta was an excellent guide. She was easy to understand, and had a voice that carried nicely so we could all hear what she was saying. Mirta had a very nice itinerary for showing us Buenos Aires in a day, and was very accommodating when we wanted to linger in certain places.
Patrice ThompsonCitrus Heights, CA, United States
Natalia was our tour guide as Mirta was not able to for personal reasons. Natalia was vibrant, knowledgeable and spoke English very well. We enjoyed the entire tour. We saw many sites with a good explanation of them along with the history of each place.
Ushma VasantBolton, United Kingdom

Mirta was a great guide to this really fun and unique destination. Her English is excellent, meaning that we could get so much more out of our experience. She planned the day extremely well, giving us interesting historical tidbits along the way. I highly recommend this trip and this guide if you are in Buenos Aires!
Mark KaplanUnited States
Outstanding. Friendly. Accommodating
Mary AldersonUnited States
Mirta and her driver were absolutely perfect for our tour of Buenos Aires on Feb 21, 2019. They changed the tour time for us when our ship docked late and were professional and knowledgeable about the city. We were very pleased and recommend Mirta without reservation. Thank you
Mirta is very friendly, informative and helpful, adapting her tour itinerary to our interests and the very hot weather on the day .
Pamela DagestadUnited States
Transfer to the airport after our tour was as we expected.
Pamela DagestadUnited States
We had one day to see Buenos Aires after disembarking our cruise ship and before our flight. Mirta and our driver met us at the cruise ship terminal with a sign with our name so it was easy to spot them. We were given a full day tour of all the major highlights of the city of Buenos Aires and dropped at the airport at the end. Great tour by Mirta. It was our first experience with Tours By Locals but it will no be our last.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Pamela! Thank you very much for your review. I'm very pleased to know that you and your husband enjoyed the tour. Kind regards from B. A. Mirta
Brian SudyUnited States
Mirta arranged for transportation from the airport. The driver was on time, and Mirta kindly called me to ensure that I found the driver ok.
Edna RookeUnited Kingdom
My two friends and myself, June, Jamie and Edna would like to thank Mirta for giving us an unforgettable day In Buenos Aires. Mirta is wonderful company and a first-class guide who has such an impressive level of knowledge- we could not have wished for better- and I am also so impressed by the level of sensitivity she displayed towards my friend's son who suffers from mental and physical disabilities. As our ship sailed back to Buenos Aires, Jamie kept asking if we could meet with Mirta again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Edna, June and Jamie!! Im very pleased with your feeling about the tour and myself. Thank you very much!!! I d also like meeting you again. Kindly regards to all of you, and huge hugs to Jamie!!
Keith ColganUnited States
Mirta and Andreas, (the driver she arranged), did an excellent job of customizing the tour to our needs/desires. She provided in depth historical/context information as appropriate and also a great overview of the city.
Excellent tour which can be highly recommended. Mirta is very knowledgable and provided very good background information to the history and development of Buenos Aires. Time passed quickly and the tour provided am excellent overview for a first visit to the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andreas and Christina. Thank you very much for the review and your nice words!! I appreciate that. I also enjoyed my time with you. Kindly regards. Thank you again
Ivan ButterfieldUnited States
Mirta was wonderful. Her tour was exactly what we had requested and she was willing to adjust to any particular needs we had. Friendly and knowledgeable. We would certainly enjoy touring with her again.
Mirta was an excellent guide. She was pleasant. kind and very informative. She had extensive knowledge of history, music, tango and BA and communicated it very well. My spouse and I benefitted greatly from our time with Mirta. I would highly recommend any tours with which Mirta is the guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Maggie and Don! Thank you very much for your nice words. I had a great time with you too. Kindly regards from B.A
Chet OpalkaUnited States
We loved our tour with MIrta. It was our first time in Buenos Aires so we had much to cover. We had two very enjoyable days of learning about Buenos Aires and Argentine history, culture, architecture, art and food. Mirta was very interested and good at creating the kind of tour that is customized to our likes, needs and abilities. One evening she took us to a Malonga Tango event, something that is not one of your typical tourist experiences. When we return, we will hope to find her to guide us again
Judy AndersonUnited States
Great tour. Guide was a knowledgeable historian and had good command of The English language.
Richard GonzalesUnited States
Mirta is very knowledgeable about Buenos Aires and Evita Peron. She is very professional, personable guide who shares her wealth of information in an easy informal manner but by the end of the day you realize how much you have learned. We went to a variety of interesting sites throughout the city and saw everything we expected to see and more. She was totally flexible on how we wanted to spend our time while on our tour and we enjoyed her company and insightful stories. Thanks Mirta for a great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Richard and Carol for your nice words. I also had a great time with both of you . Regards from B.A

We had a very enjoyable tour and and a nice day. We found Mirta very informative and learnt a great deal about everyday life in Buenos Aires. Even though one of our group was wheelchair bound we didn't have any problems getting around and visiting the sights.
Charles Delle DonneUnited States
Tango dancing was a first for us and wonderful because Mirta is an accomplished dancer. Loved every moment !
Charles Delle DonneUnited States
Going on a boat tour was complimentary to her planned city tour. She gave us a great picture of Buenos Aires.
Charles Delle DonneUnited States
Marta is so professional and very personal about her city. She made it exciting for our first visit.
She was exceptionally well read on history, interesting and clearly a wonderful human being,

Dr. Lynn BlairUnited States
Mirta showed us a good variety during our day together. To have a driver to expedite the process was nice. Mirta has good knowledge of the City. Would recommend.
Sehr symphstisch, extrem interessant. Mirta wusste viel wissenswertes zu berichten. Ihr englisch war sehr gut, sie ging auf unsere Wünsche ein und zeigte uns ein wunderbar ursprüngliches Argentinien. Wir empfehlen diese Tour jedem weiter.

Mike ScanlinUnited States
Great tour and recommended guide. Very knowledgable about Argentina history and sites! Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mike. I also had a great time with you and Jeff. My regards for both of you
Allen WilsonUnited States
Mirta showed us how real people live in the Tigre Delta. We loved the shops and the water excursion. These are not just tourist shops but real stores where the many people in the delta secure provisions for ordinary life. The boat of supplies being loaded and unloaded, the buildings at the ports and all along the waterways provide a colorful backdrop for the life here that is very different from BA. We highly recommend this tour. Thank you Mirta for leading us through this adventure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Allen for your nice words
Mirta was personable, professional, knowledgeable and flexible. She spoke English clearly. The driver, Alberto, was attentive. We saw everything that we wanted and we want to do so many things that we were a little rushed at the end.
Michael NowakUnited States
Great tour of Buenos Aires. You can see that she really loves the city and sharing her knowledge with visitors. She had a great knowledge base and could answer all of our questions. We saw many parts and sides of the city and she was very accommodating to our requests.
Cindy CarrilloRidgway, CO, United States
Mirta is a wonderful guide who takes her job very seriously and ALWAYS puts the needs of her guests first! When we asked questions, needed to pay for something...or even needed to find a bathroom, Mirta was there to help! She has so much information to share and does so with great passion and warmth for her country and culture. We highly recommend her as a guide and would certainly call upon her again upon a return visit to Buenos Aires!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Cindy!! Í wish you could have stayed longer as well . Thank you very much four your kindness. My regards for you and Mathew
Cindy CarrilloRidgway, CO, United States
Best. Tour. Ever! If you want to experience the real Tango in Argentina...with all of the personal attention and kindness possible...then boom this tour with Mirta (including the private tango lesson). Mirta is so knowledgeable and eager to share her love of Tango, that you can't help but get swept up in it all. And...getting to go to a Milanga with a professional...who can explain all of the customs...makes it so enjoyable and educational. An amazing night from start to finish!!! Thank you Mirta
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Cindy and Mathew!! Thank you very much for your nice words. Í was also very happy at watching you enjoying and appreciating everything ! Welcome to tango!. I know you will try it again and you will success. Thank you again !
Anita FitzgeraldUnited States
Very knowledgeable and friendly. She was on time, listen to our wishes and kind. We would highly recommend her and use her again.
Len Ganotemill Valley, CA., United States
Mirta is an excellent guide and provided us with an in-depth tour of Buenos Aires. She shared the history of the numerous places we visited with a zeal and knowledge beyond expectations. She was open to modifying her agenda to fit our needs since we were not feeling up to extensive walking. She even helped us find an apothecary where we could find medicine for our ailments. Her driver was also phenomenal as she wove her way through the busy streets of BA. I highly recommend Mirta and will use again.
Michael RissoUnited States
This is an interesting tour with a view in on BA's local river lifestyle and a drive through the wealthy northern suburbs. The drive is about 2 hours, boat ride around the delta an hour or so and just over an hour back. With lunch and sightseeing stops, it's a comfortable 6-7 hours, we had a small but roomy SUV with a careful local driver. Mirta is very knowledgeable about everything BA has to offer and knows Argentine history very well. Her English is excellent and she is very accommodating.
Michael RissoUnited States
Would have been a 5 except for major construction limiting access to part of the tour (Puerto Madero). Marta is very knowledgeable, speaks excellent English and is enthusiastic about her city. Roomy small SUV with careful local driver. Recommended for a one-day overview of beautiful BA and a synopsis of Argentine history.
Gary TrattUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Gary! Thank you very much for your feedback. I had also a nice time with you and your wife Helen. My regards for both of you
Jeff GetzUnited States
The tour was very interesting to see as a contrast to the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires. Mirta is very pleasant and easy going; and as a former teacher, we all very much enjoyed her story telling about the history and relevant events. The tour was very well organized; she was very responsive in advance of the tour.We recommend Mirta for an enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jeff. Thank you very much for your nice comment. Í ve enjoyed my time with you, and your partners, Cindy and Christine. Kind regards for the three of you. Thank you again
Leslie Anne ShackaPanama
This tour exceeded our expectations. Mirta is extremely knowledgeable and having a driver saved time looking for parking places. We visited all districts in BA and got a great overview of this beautiful city as well as much of the intriguing history. Mirta has many stories to tell, which brought the tour to life. We would definitely ask for her again.
Judith BrownUnited States
Mirta was a wonderful guide, and we felt quite safe with Alberto as our driver. Buenos Aires is a beautiful city, and we felt with Mirta we received an excellent introduction. As my husband says, " She really knew her stuff!" She was very knowledgeable and informative. We learned much about Buenos Aires history and the influence of Eva Peron. We have done several ToursByLocals, and we both agree that this has been our favorite!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Judy. Thank you so much for your nice words. Í ve enjoyed this day with you and your husband. Have a good night and a nice last day in Buenos Aires. Thank you again
Robert CrowleSAINT MICHAELS, MARYLAND, United States
We were in Buenos Aires for a brief visit en route to a cruise. To maximize our time we chose Mirta to provide an overview of the city. As a local we found her very insightful on Buenos Aires and Argentine history and culture. In addition to the most prominent attractions she also exposed us to some of the less well known neighborhoods and a few local shops. She speaks fluent English and is very personable. We highly recommend her. Thank you Mirta!
Mirta and the local Manager Andres picked us up at our apt at 10:30pm and took us to a Milonga in Palmero. It was a great opportunity for us to see how the Argentinan people spend many of their evenings. There was also a performance by a Professional Tango couple from Mexico, who were excellent. We'd recommend this outing to someone who wants to see more than a Tango Show when they are in Buenos Aires.
Mirta was excellent. Would definately recommend her for a tour of Buenos Aires . Her english was perfect and her stories and history lessons were entertaining and excellent. Traveling from area to area in an air conditioned car was the best way to tour as it was an extremely hot day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joe for your comment. Í appreciatte your words. Í ve passed a great time with you and your wife too. Happy new year!
Thomas MehlerUnited States
Thank you Mirta for a wonderful tour in Buenos Aires. We loved the little stories, and will never forget this amazing city. Sorry we missed your Tango dancing event. David Sudry Shoresh, Israel
Howard BergerUnited States
Mirta was extremely knowledgeable and demonstrated her love for Buenos Aires. We accomplished a great deal in 7 hours and commend her for time allocation and meeting our needs. If you need a guide in Buenos Aires we Harding recommend Mirta
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Howard for your nice words. I also had a great time with you and your wife. Kindly regards from Buenos Aires.
Graham TamsettUnited Kingdom
Mirta is an excellent guide and tailored our trip to suit what we mainly wanted to see, which in our case was cafe and plaza tango dancers / musicians.The car was used to cover larger distances but we were able walk around the areas which were of most interest to us.She has excellent English and is interesting to talk to. Many thanks Mirta. Marian & Graham
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Graham and Marian for your comment. Í ll send you an e email address where I can receive that panda video you talked about. Happy new year!
Danny ChangUnited States
We enjoyed this tour with Mirta. It's really not a tour, more like going out with a friend. I recommend instead of going to the "for tourists" Tango dinner show, to visit the Milonga hall with Mirta. It was a joy to watch locals danced the Tango in a local setting. Mirta is a Tango reacher which makes it ever better as she shared her experise.
a very interesting personalised tour containing both countryside as well as a very interesting in view on life in the past on the ranchos and having enjoyed the real barbecue..
Beautiful tour with some much more than "only" the tigre delta
Mirta knows all the interesting high lights of Buenos and interesting (historical) backgrounds related to it. It has been a wonderful day!
Haley BarbourUnited States
Mirta was a delight during the two days she gave my wife and me an excellent tour of Buenos Aries. She was well informed about the history of the city and the country and discussed with us the sites and areas related to that history and people who played great roles in it. She recommended excellent places to eat and shop, and was a fine guide all around. We were very pleased. And our driver was not only competent but very accommodating. We will certainly recommend Mirta and her team. Haley Barbour
Michael BaileyHOUSTON, TX, United States
Very nice, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating.
Lisa GregorianUnited States
Mirta's tour was fantastic. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. She shared the history and culture with us and at the end of the day we felt like we had an understanding of the city and people. If you have the time and money, it is worth asking Mirta to include a car and driver. Also, Sunday was a perfect day to take a tour since the traffic is much lighter and you can go to the many outdoor events happening around the city.
Merry EvansUnited States
We had a wonderful day seeing all the sights of Buenos Aires! Mirta is very knowledgeable and does a great job bringing the history of the area to her guests.
Michael HopkinUnited Kingdom
What a fine tour. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I couldn't have asked for better.
Charles DoyleTexas City, TX, United States
My son and I toured Buenos Aries with Mirta on January 17th for eight hours...It was one of the best tours that I have taken anywhere in the world..and I have visited all seven continents and almost every major city! Patient and considerate as well as making arrangments for us to attend the very best Tango show!
Peter BoswellUnited States
Just a wonderful Tango tour! Mirta and her driver/tango partner were excellent teachers and gave us a fantastic understanding of tango dancing. The milonga we attended was fun and gave us a real insight into how the people, young and old, of Buenos Aires tango. We recommend this tour to anyone who can dance at all.
Samuel HathornUnited States
Mirta was excellent, timely, knowledgeable, personable and helpful. She has a wealth of knowledge about the city and it's history.
