After exhaustive searching and reading of tripadvisor reviews, we decided upon Marcelo for our first trip to Argentina and to Buenos Aires. He was everything and more the reviews discuss below. He is not just a "guide" but a passionate, intellectual, engaging, and super-friendly person to customize your BA experience. Marcelo is able to discuss politics, history, culture, traditions, modern-day... More

Marcello provided an excellent tour of the city that truly made the rest of our trip even more enjoyable. Prior to arriving, Marcello provided prompt replies to any questions we had along with a few recommendations he had. His tour is unique in that he builds the itinerary when he meets you that morning and based on things that specifically... More

Marcelo is, in a word, phenomenal. From the very first, Marcelo proved himself to be consummately professional yet also warm and engaging. I sent him an email a few weeks before traveling to Buenos Aires and his reply was prompt and informative describing his philosophy and approach to guiding visitors through his city. Specifically, he met up with my partner... More

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work in Buenos Aires for the first time. I added a few extra days onto the trip for sight seeing in BA. I contact Marcelo based on feedback in Trip Advisor to learn more about his services. He responded immediately and provided a detailed agenda (at my request). You never know... More

Marcello is equal parts historian, linguist and color commentator. His English is perfect, and his knowledge of the history of Argentina and Buenos Aires is professorial. He's engaging and fun, and my 1/2 day walking tour has been one of the highlights of my trip to Buenos Aires. I recommend Marcello without a single reservation.

To be honest, I don't know where to start! Everyone seems to have said what I want to say about Marcelo! ...enthusiastic and very informative when it comes to what he does. ...warm yet very professional. When I first contacted him, all I wanted was photos of what I see, but right from the beginning he told me that there's... More

Marcelo is amazing. We were referred to him by friends who had used him on several occasions. He was prompt in his response and gave us a great tour of the city. Marcelo really finds out what you want to get out of the tour and the city and customizes it to your needs. He is a wealth of knowledge... More

My family and I had an amazing experience having Marcelo show us around Buenos Aires What sets him apart from others is his amazing responsiveness to all questions and requests before and after the tour. He helped us plan our trip, aside from his own tour, booked restaurants and tango show for us and answered our questions after the tour.... More

I cannot say enough about Marcelo. He's very prompt, very professional, very personable and probably most of all, an excellent communicator. We were most interested in learning about the people of Argentina as opposed to the sights. The two days we spent with Marcelo delivered much more than we had hoped for and, allowed us to make a new friend... More

Marcelo was great and very accommodating to my parents who were with me on the trip. I love the fact that he tailor makes the tours from your requests. The fact that he picks you up from your hotel is also amazing. He just gave us some much general information that we would have never thought of that made our... More
