Located in the southern part of Buenos Aires, the barrio (neighborhood) of La Boca comes alive with color, music, and tango beats. Join our guide Fabian as he takes us on a tour of this kaleidoscopic neighborhood, and learn how immigrants coming from Italy helped give the area a European flavor. On this tour, we’ll visit one of the most photographed places in the world: Caminito (little street), which got its name from the famous tango, composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto in 1926. If we’re lucky, we may even see some dancers in the streets!
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.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Buenos Aires with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Buenos Aires. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

I learned a lot of things about the city and the history of Tango, and even if this time we didn't see anybody dancing tango, we had a glimpse of other traditional dances and that was maybe enven more interesting for me.
