We did a half day tour with Marcelo who had been recommended by friends. It was just me and my two kids, 11 and 9. I chose the private car option. It was all well worth it. Marcelo showed us some of the local highlights and answered all of our questions. For those traveling with kids, you should know that... More

We were very pleased to have had Marcello as our guide in Buenos Aires. When he came to the hotel he firstly spent time explaining the city to us and in order to establish what was and would be of particular interest to us. We spent the whole day with Marccello and explored the city mostly on foot with Marcello.... More

We visited Buenos Aires for 2 days at the beginning of March before embarking on a cruise and we were very fortunate to have Marcelo as our tour guide over those days.. Before our visit he replied very promptly to all my emails and questions and made excellent recommendations for our hotel, airport transfer and a tango show. On meeting... More

We found Marcelo based on positive TripAdvisor reviews and booked him for a half day tour of the city on the first afternoon that we arrived. Marcelo met us at our AirBNB right on time and we started off with a quick bite and drink where he taught us some local customs, culture, and quick Spanish phrases as we discussed... More

Marcelo led four of us on a walking tour of the city. Marcelo met us at the cruise terminal and we walked into town, avoiding the protest marches going on that day. Marcelo loves his city and gave us many insights into its culture and people. He accommodated our wishes to see certain sights. His understanding and explanation of Argentine... More

I was in Buenos Aires in February and had booked Marcelo as my guide. before I arrived I actually contacted Marcelo to cancel my booking with him as I had decided that I did not really want a 'walk around' guide as I did not think that it would be that great. How wrong was I. When I contacted Marcel... More

In July 2016 I reserved two half day tours with Marcelo for February 2017. If you want to learn and appreciate Buenos Aires, Marcelo is your guy and should be your guide. Marcelo's passion for sharing the history, culture and his personal knowledge of Buenos Aires and Argentina is heartfelt and deep. Marcelo is considerate, and worked with our group... More

We had very high expectations after reading the great reviews and we weren't disappointed. From first contact he was impressive with prompt and full replies with very helpful information and suggestions. We spent 4 days with Marcelo and as others have said it felt as if we were being shown around by a friend. It took all the stress out... More

Marcelo organized a half day city tour. We met Marcelo in our hotel lobby where he asked us about our specific interests and suggested a possible time table for the tour. Marcelo exceeded in every way our expectations. Not only did he know and explain a lot about the past and curent history of Argentina and Buenos Aires, but he... More

Our group of 4 booked Marcelo for a half day and full day tour of Buenos Aires (very easy to book and so prompt in replying to e-mails, sending gentle reminders, etc). Due to changes in travel plans, only my partner and I were able to do the 2nd (full day) of touring. Marcelo was extremely flexible and was able... More
