Good information, but outdated

Has a lot of good tips and pointers but since the book is from 2017, the list of restaurants and shops can be quite outdated. We unfortunately had bad weather on the weekends and the Feria de Matadero so highly recommended by the guide was a disappointment (the food we ate there was excellent though).

Many of the recommendations are now closed or have moved to outside of Buenos Aires. Also, as the economic situation in Argentina is changing quite rapidly, tips about changing money may not be relevant any more).

Received ok. The odds are…,
Since brexit delivery takes longer and there is customs tax to pay

Which guidebook is right for me?
