Howard was a great guide. We had only a couple hours between flights and he showed us the nightlights of the beautiful city ans managed to get us to the airport at just the right time. Be sure to see the rose garden and cemetary. Asks for Howard!

Howard Crowston is a fabulous guide
Kurt_S
, Dec 2021
Our guide was Howard Crowston, originally from England but has lived in Argentina for 17 years. He is completely conversant in English and Spanish. Originally, we signed up for a driving tour of Buenos Aires since our plan was to arrive in the morning, spend one night, and depart the next day to catch our Antarctica cruise. The day we arrived, the cruise company announced that the cruise was going to be cancelled due to crew members testing positive for COVID, but we would get a full refund, and the cruise company would cover our hotel stay and hotel meals for 7 nights. We opted to stay and see more of Buenos Aires. Howard made a huge difference our enjoyable stay! He picked us up at the airport and returned us to the airport at the end. Besides providing a superb city tour as contracted for through Viator, he took us to other locations on another day to allow us to get a better sense of Buenos Aires. He was vital in helping us get COVID PCR tests for our return flight since the cruise operator, who was originally going to provide these tests our last day on the ship, was leaving it to each traveler to figure out how to get this test done in Buenos Aires. Howard is super pleasant, outgoing, and caring. We learned about him meeting his wife, his relocation from England to Argentina, his two children, his work activities, his tennis and other fun activities, and more. Simply outstanding! Be sure to ask for Howard.

Howard gave my wife and I the best 1 day tour of BA. He picked us up at the airport, and showed us his personal perspective of BA. Howard was very knowledgeable about the history, culture, and cuisine. In addition to the all the tourist highlights, we visited the monument to Argentina's "The Disappeared", a very moving experience not normally visited by tourists. When I mentioned that I collect Hard Rock T-shirts, Howard drove to the Hard Rock store, helped me buy a shirt, and took pictures of me in front of the store! He showed us a great lunch place near La Boca where we had parilladas, a BBQ meat lovers feast! If you want to see the real BA, look no further to Howard and John's Private City tour! Thanks Howard!

This was the highlight of our visit to Buenos Aires
Sally_L
, Mar 2019
From the moment John met us at our hotel, we became immersed in the culture, history and beauty of the city and the country. Without his explanations we would not have had the understanding of what we were looking at and why it was important. And it was a lot of fun! The traffic in the city is crazy and he maneuvered around everything to get to all the places we visited. He never rushed us so we had plenty of time to take photos. It just could not have been better and if you are visiting Buenos Aires, this is the tour to give you the most. John even took us to see a sculpture of a racing car when he found out that my husband is into cars. I think his tour would be good for couples and those with children as well.

Harold was a dream. Exhausted from our long flight he picked us up at the airport so we had no worries about getting to know the town. He knew the best place for lunch then proceeded to fill the balance of our day with interesting history, beautiful rose gardens and a local market to get the most unique of gifts.

We feel that we were shown a wonderful cross-section of Buenos Aires on this tour. Our guide John was very knowledgeable and taught us a great deal about the history and culture of this lovely city. The pace of the tour was great...we had an adequate time to tour each stop and were able to get our questions answered. Saw enough of Buenos Aires to make us want to visit again in greater depth!
