“Wonderful, Customized Tour of Buenos Aires”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Four of us (adults over 50) hired Marcelo for a 9 hour walking tour of downtown Buenos Aires in February 2013. We met with Marcelo, at our hotel ahead of the tour, where we explained our interests and objectives for the day. He then detailed where he planned to take us and provided a verbal itinerary... we agreed and set off on foot.
The tour Marcelo provided was fantastic! He showed us spots in BA we would never have found on our own and provided fascinating insights into each hi-lite. His knowledge of Argentinian history, politics and society are next to none. His commentary, english and tour pace were excellent! At the end of his tour day he provided great tips on other sightseeing and activity we could do on our own while in BA. We followed his advice and had an amazing 2 days afterwards... thanks Marcelo!

We are avid world travelers from Canada and by far this tour ranks among the best we have ever taken anywhere in the world. I was sorry the tour had to end and we could not have continued traveling with Marcelo. Marcelo is a master at his job and we highly recommend him for your touring needs in BA.

“Marcelo is the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Marcelo Mansilla is the best!”

March 8, 2013 NEW

Just returned from a week's visit to Buenos Aires spending two days touring with Marcelo. It is a walking-taxis-bus tour covering the city. Marcelo provides private tours based on your choices and his recommendations of what to see in the time-frame and pace you set. He was most accommodating with every aspect from planning to providing wonderful suggestions for dining and entertainment. In addition to his in-depth knowledge of the city and history, he has a most enjoyable personality and a wonderful sense-of-humor. It was like touring with your best friend taking care of everything! The tour was informative, relaxed, interactive and just a wonderful time spent in BA. I can't wait to return soon! I highly recommend Marcelo!

“Excellent. Designs tour to your wishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Our group spent a day walking Buenos Aires with Marcelo and it was the most informative interesting tour we have ever had. He designed the tour to our interests. He helps to understand the history and personality of the city, country and its citizens. He also assists with other attractions, restaurants, tango shows and shopping recommendations. Marcelo made our vacation memorable.

“Great city tour guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

From Europe we contacted Marcelo by email and arranged a whole day to guide us. It was a day we would never forget. He showed us his city with stories... history... funny things... everything.
We would recommend Marcelo to everyone...

“All of the reviews are correct!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

If you've read the glowing reviews for Marcelo Mansilla, just believe they are absolutely accurate! My husband and I spent 3 days in Bs As and our only regret is that we had booked Marcelo for only one of them. Unfortunately for us, Marcelo was busy and we could not add any additional tour days once we arrived. Don't hesitate to contact Marcelo and book at least one full day, more if you have the time. Ditto, ditto, ditto to all the wonderful, positive comments about Marcelo and about the service he provides. He is the real deal!!
