Joy is hands down the best tour guide you can find in BA! Not only does she know the city super well (including all of its history, facts and architecture),... read more but she's also so enthusiastic and truly amazing at what she does.
She'll take the time to answer all your questions, organise tailor-made tours and really pays attention to the group.

The most fantastic tour guide in Buenos Aires, possibly the world. Joy’s name really fits her personality and her enthusiasm for this beautiful city and country. She shaped the tours... read more after what we wanted to see and was incredibly flexible around time. She introduced me to some places I would never have been able to find on my own, including some wonderful food places. I would go back to Buenos Aires just for Joy.

Argentina was a last minute trip and spending time in Buenos Aires didn't become an option until the day before my flight. I didn't want to waste my one day... read more I had to explore B.A., so I took a chance on a tour guide recommendation from a FB group.
Upon landing I reached out to Joy. She was quick to respond and listened to my interests in order to build a customized itinerary. Joy talked me through the safest transportation options at the airport and met me at my accommodation in a matter of a couple hrs.
I chose a whole day walking tour. No regrets. Joy has a high level knowledge of the history, architecture, culture, art music,language and food of Argentina. We visited all the main attractions, along with things most tourists may not know about.
As our day was coming to an end, so did the sun and clear skies. We got caught in the rain. My umbrella could not withstand the wind. Joy was so gracious to lend me hers as she tried to avoid becoming drenched herself in arain jacket.
I would HIGHLY recommend Joy. Even after the tour,she continued to help me with setting up Covid test for my flight home. She has endless recommendations for not only B.A. but other regions in Argentina. I could not have asked for a better certified guide to help me fall in love Argentina.

You truly get the feeling of what it means to be an Argentinian, and Joy does a phenomenal job of conveying a holistic perspective of both the culture and rich history of Buenos Aires!

Joy was a fabulous tour guide who described the culture and history of "the Paris of South America" in her own charismatic fashion.

Joy showed us around Recoleta cemetery and shared the stories of the people of interest buried there such as Eva Peron and the Irish-born admiral William Brown.

I was super excited to visit Buenos Aires, and I am so happy that I chose Joy to be our private guide for the day!
Joy and I started texting... read more a few days prior to our arrival and she took a lot of time helping us define the scope of our tour since we only had about 5 hours available.

She gave us a wonderful tour and showed us many of the must sees of this incredible city.
Joy is extremely knowledgeable and her love of Buenos Aires comes thru beautifully in every stop we made.
We truly left with a new love and appreciation of the city and are dying to go back!
