Safety tips

Buenos Aires is a big city so you need to know some important tips:

Don´t wear expensive watches (Rolex) or jewelry.

Keep your bag/wallet in the front.

Don´t walk in the streets when it gets dark. Take a taxi.

Drink plenty of water, especially in the summer.

Wear sun glasses.

As the sun is stronger every day, TPS Buenos Aires highly recommends you to use sunscreen, mainly if you are visiting us in summer. In our Private Tours we walk as well as ride a comfortable vehicle so, be ready!! The ideal filter would be 25 and up. In this way you will be able to enjoy the sun with your local tour guide without any mark in your skin.
