*What the experts say*
“This app brilliantly guides you through the baffling labyrinth of Buenos Aires’s barrios. Expertly covering every aspect from tango to tearooms and dulce de leche to discotheques, it demonstrates remarkable depth of knowledge combined with a whimsically subjective approach to Argentina’s beguiling capital.”
Andrew Benson, co-author of the Rough Guide to Buenos Aires
“The handy sort function and accompanying interactive maps with tips for getting around make this app a perfect complement to - or replacement for - standard Buenos Aires city guides. More up-to-date info and better recommendations are tough to come by.”
Elizabeth Gleeson, NileGuide.com Local Expert for Buenos Aires
"I couldn't recommend it more to tourists heading to Buenos Aires for the first time. All the vital information you need is condensed - good tour guides, meeting points, what to do in an emergency. It will allow you to plan your holiday in a matter of twenty minutes."
