We were a party of eight people. Marcello is not any tour guide, he is the very very best. He knowledge of the history, the people the places to visit and in general all of Buenos Aries
He is very personable, always with a smile, and so polite. We felt that there was not anything he would not do for us. We made each of us really feel like family.

We had a delightful day with Marcelo. He knows tons of wonderful stories about all the sites in B.A., and he will customize your day to suit your interests. It was just two of us on our tour so I worried it might be a bit awkward, but walking around with Marcelo was like walking around with a good friend. Highly recommended !

Two of us and two of our in-laws had a great day long tour with Marcelo. We've used guides on nearly every continent and we usually wrap-up our tours early out of exhaustion, data overload or - frankly - boredom. In this case, we spent more than a full day with Marcelo.

He starts by sitting down to learn your group's interests so that he can tailor the day to your preferences. He then uses his remarkable way to share information without dryly reciting dates and facts the whole time. He has good humor, mixes in history and current events and even throws some quizzes your way throughout the day to keep things fresh. One of the other things we really enjoyed was his willingness to discuss "touchy" social subjects fairly and candidly, presenting all sides and views in each discussion.

We enjoyed every bit of our day with Marcelo and would absolutely use him again when next in Buenos Aires! Gracias, Marcelo!

Marcelo is highly recommend as your tour guide in Buenos Aires.

We engaged Marcelo, via email exchanges, for a full day walking tour of Buenos Aires. When we met with him he wanted to know what our interests were before deciding what his tour would include.

Marcelo displayed an extensive knowledge of the history of his country and city and enthusiastically shared that with us during our walk. He was always mindful of our wishes and showed us great respect throughout the day. We genuinely enjoyed his company, his caring ways and the information he provided about life in Argentina.

Marcelo recommended further sites for us to visit on our own which we were unable to incorporate into his tour due to time constraints.

If you are seeking to engage an English speaking tour guide in Buenos Aires then you would be well advised to contact Marcelo. He responds promptly to email enquiries and is happy to answer any questions that arise.

Our time with Marcelo was the highlight of our six days in Buenos Aires.

From the history of the city to the history of the country, Marcelo knows Buenos Aires and Argentina. We felt like we really got to know the city. Marcelo is also personable and easy to be around. We loved the city and Marcelo!
