Our guide Victoria was great. Very enthusiastic. Personally we didn't find the tour fulfilling. Quite short at around 2hr15mins. However the sun was shining and its always nice to chat with other people from around the world.

Did the afternoon Recoleta tour with Victoria. It was a lot funnier and more personally tailored than the other free walking tours I've done. Highly recommend.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
