Comparable with the most important lyrical rooms in the world, such as the Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, the State Opera of Vienna, the Royal Opera House (Covent Garden) in London and the Paris Opera, it is an unequivocal place of consecration for those who present themselves in it and an inescapable place for music lovers.

Our tour guide, Romina, was excellent. She was knowledgeable about the history, culture and politics of Buenos Aires. She tailored the tour to our specifications. The tour bus was clean and safe. We highly recommend this tour for families with kids and teenagers.
This was simply the finest private tour I ever took. Natalie was our host and was the most knowledgeable, accommodating and interesting guide we ever had. She was there to greet us as we arrived at the Buenos Aires airport and promptly gathered our belongings to start our tour. She had a general plan in place to visit all of the key sights but first asked how she could tailor it to meet our desires. It wasn't just a driving tour either. We got out and visited locations such as La Boca, Plaza de Mayo, Buenos Aires Cathedral, and the Recoleta Cemetery. While we were able to see many fun and fascinating locations she also took us to small cafes and other locations to get a feel for the culture. I highly recommend this tour and especially Natalie if she is available.
Marcela from Signature was FABULOUS. Thank you for such a great tour. Her English was wonderful! This was the perfect tour!
