Where you'll be

We start in the Two Congresses Square, then go through May Avenue, stopping in the largest Avenue in Latin America: the 9th of July. We get to May Square, surrounded by the Pink House (the Presidential Building) and the Cabildo. As a closer, we enter a craftbeer bar and have some pints (or you can have whatever you want).

We spent a wonderful afternoon and we went to a very special building to take pictures from the roof (Galería Guemes). It was great for my son.

I loved the photo tour. Javier and Gaston were so welcoming and taught me a lot about the composition of photos to help me get some great shots. we talked a lot about buenos aires and made some great conversation. after, we stopped for a beer together to chat, and it felt like sitting and chatting with friends!

I would thoroughly recommend javier and Gaston’s photo walk. Firstly they were so understanding of me having to reschedule after coming down with a cold after walking in the snow in ushuaia. I do have some photography experience but there is nothing like walking the streets with a local. I was lucky enough to have a one on one session with Gaston and from the moment we met on the street corner the conversation flowed and the opportunities kept coming. It was probably my best afternoon in my stay in BA

It was a nice experience. They even made it just for me because there was no one else booking their experience on that specific date. So they gave me some tips and tricks and shared their knowledge with me, i would say i've definitely learned something that will help me getting better in photography. Thank you guys :)

We had a great time learning about photography and Buenos Aires. Javier and Gaston were both very knowledgeable in both areas and made it a really great day. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough. A must do if you’ve just arrived in BA and are looking for a way to learn more about the city.

Javier and Gaston were super guides! I would highly recommend this experience. They met me at a cafe and firstly we went over photography guides to talk about the proportions that make up a good photograph. Even though I knew a lot of this theory already it was really helpful to prepare to go into the experience thinking about what we were aiming to do. Then we spend the next three hours adventuring around taking photos which they gave me really good directions to get me to think outside of the box. I was roaring with laughter as we were having so much fun together. They are two super chilled, super kind, and both really talented guys. They made me feel right at home and made me want to hang out with them as friends. Make friends with these guys too when you have the chance!
