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

My travel companion and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Marcelo. Buenos Aires is an amazing city, and it really requires a tour guide like Marcelo who reflects the charm, excitement, and passion of the city. Marcelo tailors the tour to the travelers he's showing around town, which really made the experience personable and still very professional. I highly recommend... More

We just spent tow days touring Buenos Aires with Marcelo Mansilla and without a doubt, he was the best guide we've ever had... anywhere in the world. He's multi-lingual, has a deep love of country, but also a willingness to reveal its weaknesses. Thus, we were provided an in depth understanding of Argentine history while seeing the sights which link... More

Read the other reviews about our new friend Marcelo and you will hear how well he responds to his clients. Marcelo treasures his beautiful and complicated city, and after a day of touring with him, you feel that you are not alone in this huge city. Marcelo personalized our first day in Buenos Aires to help us to understand all... More

My husband and I visited Buenos Aires in December 2014 with our 3 children. Prior to the visit, Marcelo immediately responded to all my requests for information and inquired about our interests in preparation for our tour. He also set up transportation for us to visit the Lujan Zoo on a subsequent day. Marcelo provided us with a wealth of... More

Spent two weeks in Argentina including a week in Patagonia at Perito Moreno and Chalten. Then on to Iguazu Falls and BA. Finally got to meet Marcello. And what a pleasure it was. He is such a great guide. I found him to be very personable, informative, and flexible. He moved the date when the original one had a 90%... More

Not much more to say than what has already been said by others - Marcelo is an exceptional tour guide and a great ambassador for Buenos Aries! First day in BA was with Marcelo and he provided all the info one could need for a great adventure in a city we knew nothing about. After a great tour, he reviewed... More

My husband and I (30's from NYC) were debating between Marcelo and another top rated private tour guide, and ultimately chose Marcelo: His responsiveness was super quick, thorough, and clear. Even after our tour was over, Marcelo continued to be available to answer various questions we had throughout our stay in Argentina. What a great choice we made choosing Marcelo!... More
