I hire guides whenever I travel abroad, and Marcelo is simply excellent! His understanding of BA is first rate and I am learning so much. His prices are very reasonable -- he should charge more!! He's that good. And I have never worried that he may be getting kick backs from any hotels, stores or restaurants. Hire him!!!

When planning our vacation to Buenos Aires, I wanted to see as much as possible in the three days we had. I found Marcelo on trip advisor and booked him for our three day visit, six months before we came to Argentina. Marcelo is a wonderful guide, our three day itinerary was very busy. Marcelo speaks perfect English, is very... More

I can’t say enough good things about Marcelo. What a wonderful introduction to the city of Buenos Aires. He was entirely flexible, knew the answer to every question on every topic and was easily able to tailor the adventure to me and my 16 year old son. We had an awesome day. He was worth every dollar and if you... More

I wish I knew about Marcelo when I first visited Buenos Aires. For my second visit, March 19th, I was referred to Marcelo by friends who had spent a month in BA last year. He arrived at our hotel right on time and we were off on the most excellent, walking tour. I already knew his written English was impeccable... More

You certainly won't be disappointed with a very knowledgeable & enthusiastic Marcelo to show you the highlights of Buenos Aires! He speaks English & gives you the historical perspective of Buenos Aires & of Argentina. We walked to most of the highlights, including the cemetery where Eva Peron is buried. You can choose to go by taxi, bus, etc. &... More

well I do not have any basis for the caption because we only used his services. A polite, educated young man with fluent English. He met us at our hotel and asked us our interests and how we wanted to do them - foot, taxi or? We chose taxi/foot. He had a number of routes & destinations for us. All... More

A group of 8 of us had contacted Marcelo over a year ago about a tour but we could not decide whether we wanted a tour guide or not. Arriving in BA, we decided we did want a guide so we contacted Marcelo and he was able to give us a half day tour of the Recoleta Cemetary and a... More

Marcelo was an excellent guide for 2 days, well organized (he showed us on a city map where we went, for example), his explanations were perfect: historical but not boring and his English is excellent. Besides, he helped us, gave us useful addresses and info on Buenos Aires. He is like a friend now for us. Don’t hesitate to make... More

Marcelo is a wonderful wealth of knowledge and a charming personality. He met us at our hotel and helped us customize our tour for the day and off we went. We started at the Recoleta cemetery where we zigzagged through a maze of mausoleums until finally coming upon the ultimate mausoleum of 'Evita'. From there we jetted around the city... More
