I never go on guided tours. This was an exception I'm incredibly glad I made. The opera wasn't in season, so there were tours of the recently restored jewel of Buenos Aires. The tour guide was amazingly knowledgeable and fielded questions in at least 3 languages although this was supposed to be a Spanish language tour. We went everywhere and... More

We went we a few friends just for the simple tour. The fee is not to much just 60 argentine pesos. Inside this place is just majestic, really beautiful. I would love to go to see the opera here some day.

This was an unexpected pleasant way to spend a few hours while it was raining outside. We had the English guided tour and although it was a large group, we got to see some great architectural features and examine the details of the marble, tiles, box seats, etc. They could beef up their souvenir art shop and make some money!

As opera addicts we had to spend an evening in the beautiful Teatro Colón, in the first half of the 20th century one of the most important stages of the world. We thought it could have lost some of its brilliance, but the performance of Verdis "Falstaff" was a joy in every field - great singers throughout, the orchestra in... More

English tours run daily at 2pm and 3pm during September,(not sure of other months). Book tour in advance in ticket office in Opera House. Really excellent tour with a guide who knows how to build up to the climax of seeing the actual theater. It was truly magnificent as was the Gold Room used for ensembles. Well worth the price...

Tourists are not allowed to enter the Opera House unaccompanied. Several English tours are offered daily. The tour lasts approximately one hour. It was worth it to see this gem.

We arrived at the opera house with about 20 minutes to spare before the English walking tour, and were able to have a quick cafe y medialuna in the small cafe in the lobby while the rest of the group gathered. Make sure you have a map or good directions to the theater, as we arrived when a practice was... More

I attended a symphony and also took the tour in English on a different occasion. I enjoyed both very much.

It is a piece of history that went through a long remodeling effort. They have succeeded in a great way
