Definitely one of the top 5 things to see in Montevideo. The tours run pretty frequently and there's an English speaking one that'll always be a bit smaller and easier to ask questions in. Definitely enjoyed it.

You can't visit Buenos Aires without taking a tour of this fabulous 100 year old theatre. Stunning design with many interesting features.

This is considered one of the top 5 concert halls in the world in terms of acoustics so I believe a visit to Buenos Aires would be incomplete without a visit here. Apparently, Luciano Pavarotti once said that to perform at the Teatro Colon one must be a very brave singer because the acoustics are so fine that if one... More

My husband works in theatre in London so we always have to visit the one local to where we visit. This is a beautiful building, it speaks it's history and is very well cared for. The tour is really interesting and you get to see everything and hear some great stories.

A trip to Buenos Aires is not complete without a visit to Theatre Colon. It is after all one of the worlds famous opera theaters. Try to book well before your visit as seeing a performance of opera, music or ballet is a much enhanced way of visiting the Theatre. You really must see a performance to truely appreciate the...

This is a very pretty theatre and definitely worth seeing. But, unless you go thru with a tour guide that can tell you about what you are seeing, you'll miss the important and interesting parts of the building and you probably won't leave satisfied. It's not the Palais Garnier in Paris, but I am glad I did a tour. While... More

As a classically trained musician, when I heard that Teatro Colon was ranked as the opera house with the 3rd best acoustics in the world, I decided I'd rather see a concert than go on a tour. When I went to the box office, I was amazed to find that they were selling tickets for that night's performance for the... More
