This place is incredibly beautiful. They take tour groups every 15mins (the tour lasts about 45-50mins), but only seem to do English language ones 3 times per day. If you want an English language guide it is best to book online ahead if time -...More

There are some good reasons why Teatro Colon was ranked one of the top 5 opera houses in the world. The best part is that tickets cost little compared to those other great houses in Europe, so you should take advantage by picking good seats....More

If you’re in Buenos Aires this venue is a surprise, it must be one of the greatest opera houses in the world. The tours can be done in English and when you finish you’re left feeling that you’d discovered something really special. Definitely worth the...More

Matias was a great guide in a terrific tour of a historical and cultural landmark. If his purpose was for me to want to watch an opera here, he certainly succeeded.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
