I was in Buenos Aires with my boyfriend about a month ago and spent a day and a half with Marcelo. He is not only charming and friendly, but very organized and knowledgeable. He emailed back and forth with me before the trip (always responding promptly) and dutifully answered my many questions. He had some really helpful advice regarding exchanging... More

On our first day in Buenos Aries, we met with Marcelo. He is a well mannered young man, who speaks English fluently and has a great sense of humor. He gave us a detailed overview over the city, sights to visit, where to eat and what to do. Not only did he explain but he handed us a folder as... More

I was referred to Marcelo by a friend and I am glad I took the recommendation. The weather was cold, rainy and windy but we continued as planned. Marcelo called to confirm the morning of and was flexible with the schedule in order to keep us out of the weather. We visited Recoleta area ended in San Telmo at the... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about our tour with Marcelo. We took a half day tour with him on our first day in Buenos Aires. He gave us a fantastic tour of the Recoleta cemetery and helped us with all of the very practical needs that we needed for the rest of the trip (e.g. How to use the... More

We were in Buenos Aires and spent half a day with Marcelo on July 19, 2014. We wanted a historical tour of Plaza de Mayo and the Recoleta Cemetary. He met us at our hotel and then we took the subway there. He told us all the history, special back stories, talked about the Argentinian government and economy, and all... More

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.
