I did a great tour of Teatro Colon. It was very animated and the guide really knew the history and had a love for opera. Was a wonderful experience.

We took the guided tour in English (130 ARS for foreigners) that lasts about 50min. English tours leave every full hour, but with 30 people max. The guide was funny, knowledgeable and told stories, history and facts in a very entertaining way. You get to see the entrance, the auditorium and the "golden hall". Unfortunately, we only had 3 people... More

We thoroughly enjoyed taking the tour of the theatre. There was a short impromtu performance that was delightful. I would highly recommend taking the tour! It made us want to come back for a full concert in the future.

You must visit it when you come to Buenos Aires. The architecture is really fantastic and its accoustics is among the best in the world. You can either take a guided tour or even better assit to an opera or a ballet. Don´t miss it

Among its many outstanding attractions, the Colon theatre is, undoubtedly, one of those places you wouldn't want to overlook. Brilliant, luxurious, totally renovated and appealing to any voyager who appreciates the beauty of art, the theatre won't disappoint you. Choose a guided tour and make the best of your visit and then head off for a delicious coffee nearby!

Small children might find "Swan Lake" for example maybe a little too long, but the classic mis en scene is beautiful and the music very "easy" ... For concerts all seats are good,... More

One of the best acoustics in the world. One of the best theatres in the world. Do not miss the opportunity if you have the chance. They offer guided tours in Spanish, English and not sure, but think that also Portuguese.
