Good Private Tour for people in a rush to see key attractions
, Mar 2020
Nice if you want to visit all the key places in limited time. Guide and driver are professional :). Guide is knowledgeable.
Great way to get a quick overview of the city
, Feb 2020
We only had a day and a half in the city so this was a great option. Our group included a somewhat agile 95 year old so this was the better choice for our group of 6. Anna was a great guide and shared much of the history, which was so interesting. It gave "grandma" an opportunity to get out and see the city and walk about a bit and gave us all an overview that many used as a starting point togo back to personal areas of interest in the afternoon.
Stolen Jewelry
, Feb 2020
The local tour operator was Bs As Travelers. The tour guide was Mirta and the driver was Alberto. The overall experience of this tour was overshadowed with the theft of several expensive pieces of gold/diamond and sapphire jewelry that were removed from a carry on bag that was located inside the driver's trunk. Of course the company denies any responsibility by claiming that the theft of this jewelry could have been done by professional pickpockets at the airport. However, the jewelry was placed inside an individual pouch in the bottom of the carry on bag with other costume jewelry in pouches on top with other personal items and zipped closed. A pickpocket would need a great amount of time to sort through the bag and remove only the gold/diamond and sapphire jewelry. Besides, the bag was always in our possession except for the 4 hours it was in the trunk of Alberto's vehicle. Additionally, Viator does not accept any liability or responsibility for this situation. We have asked Viator to: 1. Bar Bs As Travelers from receiving any future business from Viator; 2. Notify other third party providers of the situation with Bs As Travelers; and 3. Place a warning to those individuals who have already booked this tour. No response was received from Viator. It makes us wonder how many other local operators do they employ who are as untrustworthy as Bs As Travelers. The purpose of this review is to warn other travelers so that they can avoid experiencing the very same situation. Please do not trust the tour guide and/or driver when they tell that everything will be safe in their vehicle. If you have a tour booked, we would strongly advise that you reconsider unless you do not have any valuables that need protection. Emil and Alice Maslanka
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Maslanka We are very distressed by your loss and we are really sorry. Two days after your tour we received a message telling that the driver stole you the following: The items were; 1 gold bracelet lobster claw closure, 1 gold + platinum twisted style bracelet 1 gold blue sapphire + diamond bracelet, 1 gold ring square blue sapphire surrounded by diamond baguettes 1 blue sapphire ring -style shaped like pyramid 10 sapphires. At first I thought it was some kind of bad joke made by some hacker and referred the matter to the company. But now I see your review and it is something very serious and I need to clarify some points: 1. If you enter the country with that amount in jewelry you must declare them at customs when you enter and when you leave the country, showing them to the customs officer, otherwise you may be suspected of money laundering, obviously this was not done because otherwise you would have discovered the loss before leaving the country and not two days after. 2. If you bring that amount of jewelry or values you must tell us beforehand and we would take the necessary measures such as hiring a security guard or canceling the tour taking you directly to the airport, because it is a big risk (and a crazy idea) to drive for four hours by the city with such jewels in the car. In 20 years working in tourism, I have seen many strange things (from passengers pretending to be disabled people to avoid forming a line or paying tickets to a museum to simulated robberies to collect insurance). Also when you meet the tour guide she saw that Mr. Maslanka had a Rolex and immediately she advised him to keep it in his pocket and don’t show it, even the places we visit are safe we always try to avoid dangerous situations. 3. Unfortunately, in our airport there are great security deficiencies, please search google for information about "abrevalijas en el Aeropuerto de Ezeiza” (suitcases-openers at Ezeiza Airport), there are news and videos about criminal organizations working at the airport that you won`t believe. 4. About your accusation about our guide Mirta and especially about driver Alberto, both are adult people, they are 65 years old, they have been working in tourism for 30 years in this company and in many others and there was never any complaint about them. Alberto is a very well-known driver loved but everyone in this small community of tour guides and drivers in Buenos Aires. It is difficult to believe that somebody who has been honest and responsible during all his life suddenly becomes in a thieve. They feel so bad about this shadow over them 5. In Buenos Aires the professional drivers has to renovate the license every year and they have to provide information as to their background, as far as their criminal record .(“Certificado de antecedents penales”) and if there is any suspicion about them, the government does not renew their license. 6. We suggest you to ask the recorded of the security cameras to the airport and to the airline 7. You are accusing us of a very serious crime without presenting any evidence, causing us harm in our good name and in our work, and in Argentina this is illegal and is a cause of lawsuits. For all this, please, we kindly invite you to take your comment out of TripAdvisor. 8. Finally, I repeat we are very sorry about your loss, and I hope it is only a mistake and they are still hidden in any suitcase (please, check it again, inside the shoes, in hidden pockets, etc). Kind regards, Andres

The best tour guide
, Feb 2020
Ana was the perfect guide-she was very knowledgeable and made every effort to customize the tour to our interests. She spoke English very well and gave us such a great understanding of the history of Argentina. She additionally assisted us with dinner recommendations . The dinner at Puerto Cristal was fabulous. Our group of 4 would highly recommend her as a guide.
Wonderful Private Tour with Marianna
, Feb 2020
Our guide Marianna was excellent, friendly, professional and courteous. Probably best private tour we’ve had in 30 years of travelling the World. We were driven by Betty who was courteous and friendly. Certainly very good to have a separate driver. Marianna was known to many other guides who greeted her like a celebrity and it was clear she was held in very high esteem. Would not hesitate to recommend Marianna(hope I’ve spelt her name right)
Great Expectations Met!
, Jan 2020
Ana brought her enthusiasm and excitement for the city and it’s history! She arrived promptly and began introducing us to BA ! Her English was excellent and knowledge of the history of BA, Argentina and the world amazed us. Ana brought maps and historical pictures to use as references which helped explain the sites. We would highly recommend Ana, the best we could ask for.
