We found Marcelo through TripAdvisor and decided to book a day tour with him....best investment ever. Buenos Aires is a very difficult city to navigate if you don't speak Spanish and Marcelo's excellent English, his knowledge and love of Buenos Aires, and flexibility make it so worth the time and money. He tailors the tour to exactly what you want... More

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
