My husband and I highly recommend Elisa. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she tailors her tours to the aspects that most interest you. She also is helpful in any way possible, and I really put her to the test with my many emails (which she answered promptly and fully).

My Jewels Off the Beaten Path tour is the tour to discover the architectural jewels of Buenos Aires outside of published guidebooks and traditional highlights that most tourists miss! This is also the tour for people who like architecture, history, culture and for those who want superb photo- ops. In this distinctive walking tour, we connect some unique spots that are not in the touristic circuit. I’m glad that you enjoy the jewels of Buenos Aires (not listed in guidebooks) that you would never had the opportunity to explore without knowing a local. Thanks for the nice review!

Elisa is a very kind and fun tour guide. We saw things we would have never thought of and found out about the architecture and historical meaning. The art was great, and we had some good laughs as well. It was a great experience, thanks, Tim
