Meet your local guide

Fabian

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.

Fabian has been guiding since Jan 2012

I found it very interesting, as I lived in BA during the 60's and it has changed so much, the part we toured was obviously not built during my time, but most beautiful. La Bocca was my entertainment area although we lived in Olivos and my husband worked in the city. We were very much ex-pats!!!

Another great tour by Fabian in Buenos Aires. Even though it was a rainy day, there was plenty to see on the tour by the river and across the Woman's bridge. Fabian presented this tour very well, hinting at his upcoming tour for Women's Day, which I already booked. It was so enjoyable to walk along and hear him talk about the city and the area. I always try to get in on his different tours as I can!
