Acerca de la experiencia

Descubriremos lugares únicos que muchos porteños aún no conocen. Caminaremos por la primera avenida de América del Sur que refleja fielmente el estilo europeo de la arquitectura de finales del siglo XIX en Buenos Aires. También visitaremos magníficos palacios y otros edificios y aprenderás la historia interesante detrás de ellos. Descubriremos donde tenían a los criminales durante la época colonial, cuando no había cárcel para retener a los presos. Te mostraré hermosos monumentos y esculturas incluyendo una escultura original de el pensador de Rodin. También verás otras esculturas que fueron diseñadas por un arquitecto belga que fue uno de los artistas más destacados de la época. Visitaremos la tienda más antigua de la ciudad: una fantástica farmacia (la primera en la ciudad) que es un museo vivo. Admiraremos pinturas relacionadas con la industria farmacéutica. Nos dirigiremos a una de las estaciones de metro más antiguas del mundo para ver su estructura original. Disfrutaremos de un viaje a un increíble palacio lleno de analogías y referencias a la Divina Comedia de Dante. El constructor pretendía que este lugar fuera el lugar de descanso de las cenizas del poeta. Entraremos en la interpretación del infierno del artista. Nos detendremos en la sede de las Madres de la Plaza de Mayo y visitaremos un bar político lleno de objetos y referencias a figuras como Evita, El Che , Martín Luther King, Fidel Castro, Chávez, Gandhi, etc. en una especie de Salón de la Fama . Además, colgando de las paredes podremos ver fotos, afiches y objetos históricos que muestran a las madres en muchos años de lucha y su relación con el resto del mundo. Finalmente, terminaremos nuestro viaje en un lugar de té y café místico, tranquilo y acogedor. La duración del tour es de aproximadamente 3 horas.

Elisa

Buenos Aires, Argentina. Miembro desde 17 nov 2016
Soy un nativo de Buenos Aires que ama interactuar con la gente y compartir mi profundo conocimiento y pasión por esta ciudad: su historia, arte, arquitectura, comida, literatura, etc. Mis ocupaciones pasadas y presentes: fui asistente bilingüe para una empresa de turismo médico , Asistente de investigación de historia y asesor de una revista de viajes sobre lugares y actividades en Argentina. He tomado clases de literatura e historia argentina, turismo, historia del arte, arte latinoamericano, arquitectura e historia de Buenos Aires.

Cada uno de mis tours dura alrededor de 3 horas. Podríamos tomar más tiempo, ya que soy flexible para acomodar las necesidades y preguntas que pueda tener. Y si quieres quedarte un tiempo, no te preocupes, este es tu viaje y, porque sólo reservo fiestas pequeñas, puedes quedarte todo lo que quieras. Esta no es la típica "prisa-prisa" tour.

    As someone who has led historical walking tours in his own home town, I can tell you that Elisa really knows her stuff. Doing this kind of tour well requires many, many skills, and Elisa`s good at all of them. She has a love of history and architecture (and how they intertwine), and she communicates her love of Buenos Aires well. Taking one of her tours is like ambling around town with a friend, rather than a tour guide. On this tour especially, you`ll see sights that most tourists don`t see, because on most tours, you can`t wander in and out of buildings without causing a fuss. Elisa`s tours were the best part of our visit to BA.

    Este fue mi segundo tour que reservé con Elisa después de "Caballito..." y lo disfruté mucho igualmente porque plantea un interesante recorrido arquitectónico por la Avenida de Mayo y lugares aledaños y nos dirige la mirada hacia edificios que quizá pasaran desapercibidos para nosotros y nos da también la posibilidad de entrar en muchos de ellos para descubrir los detalles arquitectónicos al tiempo que nos habla sobre las costumbres y la historia de Buenos Aires a finales del siglo XIX y principios del XX.

    This is the 2nd walking tour that I took with Elisa & as before, she was great - very knowledgeable & full of insights & historical facts of the places visited, the underlying events & people from the past that made the sites interesting & notable. Again, I had the privilege of her undivided attention (since I visited BA in May, it was a relatively low season for tourism) & she was very patient & good jumpers in answering all my questions - even rangrntial questions that were not directly related to the tour! The 3+ hours I spent in her company was well worth any number of hours Iight have spent trying to read up & visit the sites on my own. I highly recommend Elisa`s walking tours - they are enlightening, fun, insightful & well-paced. I certainly hope to revisit BA and take her other tours next time!

    This is a great tour to do to get a local´s insight in to the micro centre of Buenos Aires. Elisa has an in depth knowledge of the country´s history and shows unique places and provides the history & stories to go with it. She showed me places I walked past and had no idea of what waited inside. Can´t recommend enough! Dante´s Building and the Revolutionary´s bar were personal favourites!

    Elisa was a lovely tour guide. She grew up in the city and knows it well. Her English was very good. She`s well-traveled and could discuss the history and current events of Buenos Aires. She was very flexible to the group`s needs and interests. We had an unplanned coffee break, because we hadn`t had much sleep the night before, and Elisa was happy to accommodate us.

    Loved Hidden Treasures of B.A. walking tour! Our guide rocked! The tour was unforgettable and interesting for the whole time! I would not have discovered half of what I did on my own. The tour groups are also very small making the experience even more personal It`s not some stuffy tour with a bunch of bored tour guides. Our guide was funny, charming and full of interesting information and great stories. Love this tour! I was intrigued not only by the architecture of our tour but by the volume of knowledge that Elisa shared with us. Elisa is so full of local knowledge which can’t be replicated by the big tour companies. And not only did she know a lot about her city but we could all tell that she loved her city and enjoyed sharing it with us. She also showed us beautiful and eloquent buildings, ones I would never have known were there but now I know would be devastated if I had missed. She is passionate, super nice guide very charismatic, opinionated and lively. She is the best guides ever!! If you want to get to discover and all kinds of secrets, gorgeous places ands see the Buenos Aires that Porteños keep for themselves, then book this amazing tour of a lifetime!

    We loved this walking tour. It was informative and we got to see things we had just passed by on the Hop On Hop Off bus. Elisa was friendly, easy to understand and knew interesting stories about the history of buildings in BA. She was open to questions about Argentine politics, both current and past. I definitely would recommend this tour early in your stay in BA
