My name is Elisa. I am a Buenos Aires native who loves interacting with people and sharing my deep knowledge and passion for this city: its history, art, architecture, food, literature, etc.
I am proud to have achieved the Certificate of Excellence on TripAdvisor.
Also, I am pleased to say that Buenos Aires Off the Beaten Path Tours has been selected as the winner for : ” Innovative Tour Company of the Year 2018 in Buenos Aires” by Travel & Hospitality Awards. Travel and hospitality is a guide from the UK of the best hotels and tour companies around the world.
The tours I offer are meant for people who love to explore places off the beaten track, and for those who enjoy discovering hidden gems. Also, for those looking to get the personal attention that can only be achieved in a small group tour.
Each tour is tailored to the travelers’ pace and interests as they get the perspectives, information, and history that are most interesting to them.
My tours are not done in the traditional big group style. Because we enter most of the buildings that we visit you will receive a truly personal experience of each place that most large walking tours won’t be able to offer.
The tours include city landmarks that deviate from your typical must- see tourist stops, so you will have an authentic local experience. I am pretty sure that you will enjoy discovering unique places that are not on the touristic circuit or included in any guidebook, the places that the locals enjoy every day.
My Past and Present occupations: I was a bilingual assistant for a medical tourism company, history research assistant, and an adviser to a travel magazine about places and activities in Argentina. I have taken classes in Argentine literature and history, tourism, History of Art, Latin American Art, architecture and the history of Buenos Aires and its neighborhoods.
I speak fluent English having lived, worked and studied in the US. for 16 years. My native language is Spanish.
Each of my offbeat tours lasts around 3 hours. We could take longer, as I am flexible to accommodate the needs and questions you might have. And if you want to linger a while, don’t worry — this is your tour and, because I only do tours for small parties, you can linger all you want. This is not your typical “hurry-hurry” tour. Also, I am able to provide you with a private or with a customized tour.
NOTE: I won’t be doing tours from June 16th to June 29th.
