Buenos Aires Walking Tours

Buenos Aires Walking Tours, buenos, aires, walking, tour, tours in Buenos Aires, buenos aires city toursThe best way to see Buenos Aires is by walking or on a Buenos Aires walking tour. It is just that simple. This is a walking city with everything densely stacked and most of the treasures are above your head. Hard to see on a bus unless you are stuck in traffic. Which you certainly will be. Everyday I see tourists lined up outside the large hotel chains. They have bought the bus tour ticket. There are generally 2 different bus tours. The $20USD or the $30USD. I have taken both of these tours and was shocked at the lack of quality of them.

Here is what happens on a Buenos Aires City Bus tour. You wait at your hotel for about 30 minutes to be picked up. You then go around to a few other hotels and pick up more people. Then the tour begins. You whiz by the obelisko and if you blink, you will miss it. Forget being able to take pictures of anything. Same around the government buildings. Some Buenos Aires city bus tours will stop at the Cemetery. You are rushed in to see Evita, a few other grave sites, and rushed out.

Some of these Buenos Aires City tours are being translated from Spanish to English the entire time which means you miss out on even more information. Then you drive around dropping people off, then you get dropped off. Simply put, you are wasting your time and money folks. Trust me.

Buenos Aires walking tours are less expensive, give you the chance to take pictures, ask questions, and are usually private. Plus they are healthy too. As a traveler, its nice to stretch your legs.

    There are many great restaurants in Buenos Aires in Sna Telmo. One of my favorites is Mitico Sur. It is very interesting with an old feel and has gret Beunos Aires tappas. It is a little pricey but worth it. A very unique Buenos Aires restaurant. Check it out. Mitico Sur in San Telmo.
