About the tour

We go on strolling the streets and parks of this fancy part of the city. This time we start at the doors of the second oldest church of BA, and from there we will pass by a Cultural Centre, and it's always an interesting facade. Green parks, wide avenues, and lots of trees will lead us to the big metallic flower, the sculpture called Floralis Generica. If you like to walk the nice bright side of the city, this is the tour for you.

Meet your local guide


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
