1/2 day tour of Buenos Aires~ Cemetery tour and city highlights. Anyone used a company that they liked? We are 4 people and would like a private tour.

We'd like to hire a private guide for a 1/2 day tour of the cemetery and city highlights.
I've emailed buenostours.com twice but no one responds to my email.

Any suggestions?

You can buy a guide book/map (in English) at Recoleta Cemetery before you go in. You really don't need a guide there.

Hi,
OK...that's something to think about...would could do that at the cemetery.
I know there's also city walking tours listed in the frommer's website but it's such a big city that I think we'd also like an overview.

Have you marked the email for receipt acknowledgment? Sometimes they have server trouble in Argentina, but if we keep trying they do usually get through.

Two options:
Robert Wright offers individualized tours and has an excellent reputation.
www.urbex.com.ar

I have used this agency on a number of occasions for study abroad students in Buenos Aires. They offer a number of different tours for private groups.

The eternautas site has an English option. Click on the picture of the British flag in the upper right hand corner.

Thanks, Laurie Ann, for noting the English version of the site. The English speaking guides do an excellent job...better than the English on the site, which appears to be the product of an on-line Spanish to English translator....lol...
