About the tour

A good excuse to look over, practice, or learn your Español while you virtually visit a bookstore, a square, a market, or a cafe in Buenos Aires. In a quiet and funny way, we will be discovering the secrets of this beautiful city trying to feel it like a local, like a porteño. You can be a part of the fourth-most spoken language in the world, and, as a bonus track, we will speak out some words in Lunfardo, the BA argot- slang, just for fun. Vamos che!


Meet FabianBA

FabianBA

Almost a decade ago, Fabian kickstarted his career as a tour guide after leaving a cushiony corporate role as an HR Manager. Since then, he has enjoyed spinning exciting stories to travelers and taking them through one of the most European cities of Latin America. Through his lens, you will discover the city that's home to the widest avenue, the widest river, and brimming with people who love football. Buenos Aires was a British colony for a little over a month, but it carries with it a hint of different cultures. "Argentineans are Italians who speak Spanish but they think they live in France!" Fabian laughs. Through his tours, you might hear him sing a tango (or humming to U2’s “With or Without You”), learn a couple of magic tricks (fun fact: he's an amateur magician!), and check out yerba mate, a super healthy herbal tea that's a local popularity. "Being a tour guide is a bit like a teacher, and I enjoy telling stories. Buenos Aires is full of stories, bizarre, strange, hard to believe stories," he says.

Hi Fabian Apologise for the lateness of the review. Have been busy getting organised for the trip to Iceland. Anyway. The two tours that I did with you The Bookshop with a bit of Spanish and the tour around Puerto Madero were both done with the utmost professionalism and with great curtesy to all who attended. Mochos Gracias "Che". See you on the next tour when I get back from Iceland. Don B Dorset UK

Fabian is an excellent guide, both in English and Spanish. The pace was great. Even though I'm a Spanish speaker already, I found it nice to hear Argentinian accent and learn some Argentinian slang. Buen trabajo!
