Recommendation Came Through
A friend who had visited Buenos Aires recommended this tour and, on that basis, my husband and I booked a half day tour.
Like others here, I feel that that this was an excellent tour.
We saw the site of the bombing of the Israeli consulate, the Jewish downtown neighborhood, a synagogue and the Jewish community center, that had been the subject of a bombing itself, with many casualties.
My husband and I got a real feel for Jewish life in BA. Salito knows his community; this isn't just "see this or that"--there is a running personal, heartfelt commentary.
Agree with a prior comment that on the expensive side, but the tour is by private car with pick up at the hotel and drop off at the museum or hotel in a major city, which should be factored into the equation.

Outstanding tour by fantastic guide
I had the good fortune of touring with Salito in 2011 and he was our "go to" guide for our recent trip to Buenos Aires.
He is so personable, knowlegeable and resourceful! He is a wonderful general guide, but his knowledge of the Jewish community made our tour come alive.
We had an absolutely outstanding day with him and would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Like having a friend show you the city
Salito showed us as much of Buenos Aires as we could possibly have absorbed in one day.
Good mix of driving and walking.
He is very knowledgeable and gave us the history and context we needed to understand what we were experiencing.
The opera house and Recoleta cemetary were highlights.
Helped us find good restaurants and took care of all our transportation from airport to airport and everything in between.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for a personal tour of the city.

Overview of Buenos Aires Jewish Community
Salito gave us a wonderful, broadbased insight into the current Jewish community by visiting two synagogues, the Jewish Museum, a shopping district where the orthodox live and the Memorial to the terrorist bombing of the Jewish administrative offices.
His knowledge and perspectives were insightful and interesting - so glad we saw things that we had some knowledge of.
It was a wonderful 4 hours.

This was an amazing and informative tour. Salito Gutt was very knowledgeable about Jewish life in Buenos Aires. We especially loved his personal history stories.

In addition to Salito being a great tour guide, the company he works for is also very helpful. I was in contact with Silvia when booking the tour. I wanted an opinion on the hotel area we were booked in. Not only did she advise that we switch location but she also sent me the link to several other hotels. This was very helpful.

Thank you!

A note of caution, although we were told there would be entrance charges, we did not expect to pay close to $100 Canadian for a family of 4 to enter the JCC. That being said, the art inside the JCC was impressive but the cost was excessive.

Thank you for your review and comments
I'm happy you enjoyed your tour and had a good time.
It was our pleasure to help you with your hotel location
Regarding entrance fees: That's not our decision to rate them. Each institution charge as much as they think is correct.
Not only we advice our guests in advance by email about entrance fees not included in our rate, but also before entering the JCC or any Institution I always advice my guests there is an entrance fee to visit it. How much it is. That is not included in our rate, and of course you have the choice to not enter if you consider it excessive.
Thank you for visiting my city and my country

We actually engaged Salito for two days of tours.
First day was a Tigre Delta tour, second was a Jewish Buenos Aires tour.
Most of the organization was done several months in advance from home, including deposit, lists of names for synagogue visits etc.
The Delta tour was the best Salito could do considering it is winter there now.
The day was interesting, and he accomodated our requests for additional venue visit too.
The second day was far more information packed - as we expected and requested.
In addition, Salito added more time and more places to visit on my request a night before.
Very much appreciated, considering this revolved around his time and minivan rental (there were 7 of us).
Punctual, very approachable, very knowledgeable - outstanding tours you will not regret!
We did these on spare days from a guided Trafalgar tour, and we could modify our time with Salito on the fly to avoid duplications.
Ask him for recommendation of Jewish guides in other cities you plan to visit too.
We got an outstading reference for Pedro Landsberg in Rio de Janeiro from these guys.

“Superb Tour with Salito Gutt”

Reviewed November 25, 2015
My wife and I contracted Jewish Tours Argentina for October 22 of this year to give us a half-day, private tour of Jewish Buenos Aires.
The visit to various sites was expressly designed to meet our interests and preferences.
We feel fortunate that Salito Gutt was our guide. Salito arrived in his car ten minutes before our appointment, and he was unconcerned when the tour went well beyond the time allotted.
We were pleasantly surprised that he had done research on and was able to gain access for us to specific sites in the neighborhoods of Villa Crespo and Once.
At all times Salito proved to be very knowledgeable, and he conveyed information in a pleasant, warm, and precise manner.
We were deeply moved in particular as he recounted the horrific events associated with the last two sites of our tour—the AMIA building and the former site of the Israeli Embassy.
In Salito’s company, we felt as though we had re-established a connection with a long-lost friend.
Jewish Tours Argentina in general and Salito Gutt in particular exceeded our expectations.
Highly recommended.

I booked this tour for myself several months ahead.
On the scheduled day of the tour it was raining and it was a holiday, thus the museums were closed (a major disappointment but certainly not the company's fault).
In fact, they emailed me ahead so I was prepared.
At all phases of the reservation process, Silvia responded to my emails cordially, and especially promptly.
I'm sure she doesn't sleep.
On the day of the tour, Salito Gutt pick me up promptly in my hotel lobby and off we went.
It turned out that because it was a holiday there was no traffic therefore we were able to leisurely get to all of our sites and spend extra time.
The areas of Belgrano, Villa Crespi and Once were quite special.
We went to 3 different synagogues representing Orthodox Conservative and Reform.
We saw the very moving sites of the1992 Israeli Embassy bombing, and the 1994 bombing at AMIA.
At every site and throughout the entire four hour tour Salito was informative, engaging and humorous.
Overall it was the single best experience I had in Buenos Aires.

This was our first visit to Buenos Aires and a friend recommended Salito's tour to us.
I'm so glad we booked it...
Salito doesn't just give facts and show buildings...
He is a wonderful story teller and gives a lot of personal stories as well as stories of the Jewish people in Argentina---a very interesting history and not very well known to those of us who have been steeped in the history of Israel...
We had no idea what a large Jewish population lives in Argentina and what an interesting story of a Jewish Diaspora is here.
Sylvia of Jewish Tours contacted us before our visit to inform us that there would be a community Chanukah candle lighting in a plaza while we were in BA and we decided to go.
I never thought that Happy Chanukah could be "Feliz Januka"
Remember to bring enough money to pay about $15 per person at AMIA and about $5 to leave at the synagogue. (There may be some other places that require a donation but these were the ones on our tour...)
