Took the local tour with Ceri. We definitely got our money's worth. Ceri was very knowledgable about Buenos Aires. He took us on the subway and showed us how it worked. He gave us hints for sightseeing in Buenos Aires. We covered a lot of ground in one morning. Ceri was very enthusiastic and made the tour fun and enjoyable. There were 12 of us on the tour, which was a very manageable number. Would highly recommend this tour.

Alex gave us a wonderful full day tour of Buenos Aires. We zipped around town and he could tell our interests were history, culture and architecture. He knew it all. He organized it. He pickup us up at the ship and got us to the airport. Thanks Alex.

Referred to us by our host at our B & B. Patrick took us on a city tour, a trip to Tigre, and airport transfer.
He is knowledgeable and fun to tour with. He knows the in's and out's of the city and
navigates the crazy traffic! We appreciated that his english was great and we learnt so much. We could not have done this on our own. He made our experience in this city
memorable.

I went on the “Pay What You Want” Walking and Public Transport tour with Ceri, this past November and it was a very worthwhile experience. There were only 6 of us on the tour and we met Ceri at Puerto Rico Cafe in the city center.
While we had a bite to eat Ceri gave us all sorts of useful information on how to enjoy and navigate the city. That alone was very helpful but the best was yet to come.
For the next three hours Ceri showed us some of the highlights of Buenos Aires history, architecture, culture and off the tourist route dining on foot and via the Subte. He even helped one couple to exchange money on Calla Florida.
This was worth the going of other walking tours plus a tip, which, in November of 2015, came to around $40.00. But you get to "Pay What You Want" ....

This is the second time in a year that I've done the morning microcenter tour with Ceri, and it didn't disappoint. You can expect a friendly, funny, and knowledgeable tour guide who will show you around and give you advice on money exchange, restaurants, and tango places, as well empart his knowledge on the important historical events of the country. But what you wouldn't expect from a tour guide is for him to go out of his way to help you out in a luggage situation at the airport, which is what Ceri did for us, and it was greatly appreciated. His philosophy on how to treat people was spot on and because we followed his advice to be friendly and respectful to the people we met, we found the Porteños to be very genuine and friendly. I will definitely take another tour with Ceri if I get the chance to return to BsAs some day.
