Scott HarrisUnited States
We really enjoyed our short tour with Elizabet. Prior to the day, we were in regular communication, and she responded quickly. She was right there even though our flight was early. Having a driver saves so much time and walking in Buenos Aires, and Elizabet's driver was excellent. We were able to see all the important sites (they are spread out), take a walk, enjoy some lunch, and get to our ship with time to spare. All in all a great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Scott, thank you so much for your review and rating! I hope to see both of you again soon :) Elisabet

We toured Buenos Aires for 3 days w/ Elisabet. She is a delightful, generous, experienced guide, w/ a great sense of humor. She accommodated our special interests in gardens as well as showing us the special sites of the city. She prepared Mate for us, took us to KANOO restaurant for a divine lunch on the river. Absolutely wonderful guide. Our memories of BA will always be sweeter because of her

Diane B.Arlington, VA, United States
Another amazing day with Elisabet. She knows all the unique places along the way like the lemon shop (buried among the usual souvenir shops), restaurants where you can eat great traditional cuisine in a short time. Elisabet knows Buenos Aires well and shares nuances as well as mainstream information in impeccable English. I really liked that she uses a driver allowing you to get in and out of the car, which provides more quality time to see the sights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice words Diane! I hope you enjoy Ushuaia and the Iguazú Falls as well. You will see breathtaking views.

Elisabet was a wonderful tour guide. I only had half a day in Buenos Aires due to travel arrangements. Elisabet made the arrangements to pick me up at one airport and deliver me to the other with a great tour in between. I learned about the history, culture, harbors, governments, parks, arts. It was a great day with a nice lunch as well. Elisabet's knowledge of the city is comprehensive and I fully enjoyed my brief tour.

This tour was a wonderful start to our trip to South America. Elisabet, our guide was excellent, as was the driver, Carlos. They were prompt, professional, yet friendly and most flexible and accommodating. The stories were plentiful, interesting and the places we visited were colourful and lively. I especially loved La Boca. It was so colourful literally and fun. I could have spent a couple of days there. It was magical!

From the time that Elisabet met me in my hotel lobby, I felt very comfortable and at ease in her company. We has a wonderful 1/2 day in Buenos Aires and I thoroughly enjoyed going in and out of the various vendors stores and experiencing the art and culture of the city/country. The afternoon was great and I looked forwarded to my next day with Elisabet as she provided me with indepth history of the city of Buenos Aires and the whole country of Argentina.

We had three days with Elisabet and she was always on time. The tours were well planned and routes were thought out depending on time of day to avoid traffic. English is very good. Elisabet uses a driver who is also very pleasant. She gave us a lot of inside info into everyday life and politics, economics and personal experience. To us this was even more interesting than regular tourist info. Please thank the "Tours by Locals" on our behalf for selecting excellent guides.

Ellie was there to meet us at the cruise ship terminal and her method of using taxis to hop around the city was both fun and innovative. We had a great time in her company, saw all the beautiful sights of Buenos Aires and gained lots of information on the City that a normal tour would not provide. A true highlight to our holiday.
