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

We had a superb day with Marcelo in Buenos Aries. His knowledge and love of his city was outstanding. We saw all the iconic sights during our day with him whilst learning much about the history and politics of the city. His English is excellent, even understanding our northern humour. He advised us what to do in our own time... More

On our recent trip to Buenos Aries, we hired Marcelo for the day. We found him to be very knowledgeable about all aspects of the city and Argentina, we all enjoyed his company and patience. We walked all over the city and can honestly say he is a first class guide and should we travel again to the city, I... More

We have traveled to many countries and have had many very good tour guides. Marcelo has a degree in Tourism meaning he could work for any large tour company of even own his own travel agency. But, Marcelo has decided to carry on his love as a tour guide in the city he loves so much. He speaks English without... More

My partner and I recently spent five days in Buenos Aires and, to help orient us to the city and its history, we decided to spend our first day with a guide. With Trip Advisor's assistance, we discovered Marcelo. A great find! With Marcelo's assistance, we came to know BA's culture and history. Not only did he share with us... More

We took a four-hour tour with Marcello on the day we arrive in Buenos Aires. I would have liked a longer tour - but we were fully booked with a tango show at night, etc. It was such a wonderful way to be introduced to the city. (It is a large city.) We were traveling with our two teenage boys... More

We spent a full day with Marcelo and it was a most enjoyable and informative experience with a local entrepreneur and guide. He shared very interesting historical facts and actively discussed the politics and culture of this diverse country and city. We walked the entire day except for a short cab ride and found our time with him to be... More

Marcelo is one of those gems you want to show off for all to see but keep for yourself because you know he is that good. But for Marcelo's benefit, I know I have to share. He was easy to contact and work with via email and flexible in putting together a half day tour of Buenos Aires. He hit... More
