About the tour

Join Fabian, to cross together on the 9th of July, aka the widest avenue of the world! 140 meters, 22 lanes, and located in the heart of Buenos Aires. We will also visit (the outside of) the Teatro Colón, one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world. All the itinerary, surrounded by eclectic architecture, a feature of one of the most populated metropolises of the Americas.


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
