Fantastic walking tour in Buenos Aires

We did a one day walking tour through Tangol San Telmo which was perfect introduction to the city. The tour was a mix of walking, subway and public bus. Our guide was lovely, spoke beautiful English and had huge knowledge of Argentinian history and current affairs. As a qualified architect, she was able to provide great information about the buildings and monuments we visited. It was more like wandering the town with an intelligent friend than taking a tour. This tour would be perfect if you only have a short time in the city or as an intro to orient yourself. Couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Staff in the San Telmo Tangol office are also very friendly and extra helpful.
