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.

Gordon Shalom!
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
I hope to receive you again!

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.

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...)

Salito is a great story teller (in a positive way) and told us about the Argentinian Jewish experience from a personal family perspective which made it so much more interesting than just a recital of facts and figures.

We saw the Jewish neighborhoods and many of the sites of interest.
We were walking down the street and were called into an historic synagogue that needed to complete an Orthodox minyan.
When we completed the tour, Salito drove us to the pier so that we could begin our two week South American cruise.

Salito realmente es una 'enciclopedia andante'!!!...respondió todas nuestras preguntas con mucha amabilidad (y teníamos muchas preguntas), nos llevó a lugares emblemáticos judíos en Buenos Aires, y nos habló de mucha historia del pueblo judío, hasta nos habló sobre la historia Argentina.

Y realmente le dió un valor agregado al tour el hecho de que Salito haya compartido algunas historias personales suyas cuando nos hizo conocer la sinagoga.Es un tour que definitivamente recomendaré.

This Jewish tour with Salito Gutt Is a wonderful birdseye view of Jewish Buenos Aires from the eyes of an insider who has the pulse of the Jewish community and whose family history mirrors the evolution of Argentine's Jewish history. He showed us monuments to sadness as well as institutions of joy where memorials and celebrations go hand in hand. Salito tells a mesmerizing tale backed by a company that is easy to deal with. Services are exactly as described and the company communicates well to ensure everything goes smoothly. My wife came asking specific questions and Salit did not disappoint. He even took us to the airport for our flight later that evening when our tour ended, making the morning tour worry free. He picked us up from the port when our cruise ended and the excursion lasted from 9-1. Since we went on a Sunday, traffic was light and Salito took us to another Jewish neighborhood in the Belgrano section that we might have otherwise missed out on I highly recommend Salito as a guide and his company for the Jewish excursion.
