ToursByLocals Celebrates Official Opening of South American Subsidiary

(back to blog)

Most people know ToursByLocals is a Canadian company, headquartered in Vancouver, BC. But did you know we also have staff working in London, Montreal, Montevideo, New Delhi and Buenos Aires? Our office in Buenos Aires is the largest of the 4 international outposts, with 9 Argentinian staff members working on our "Tour Experience" team.

Tour Experience dedicates itself to making sure every one of our guides is offering the best service possible to travellers, the most imaginative and informative tours, and options to suit our travelers' many different needs.

Last Wednesday night, the Buenos Aires team, along with company founders Paul Melhus and Dave Vincent, hosted a celebration on the rooftop of Hotel 725 Continental, one of the city's most historic hotels. The reason? Our BA Branch is now officially "ToursByLocals SA", a Canadian-owned company operating in the heart of Buenos Aires.

Canadian Senior Trade Commissioner Sandra Shaddick (from the Canadian Embassy) attended the event, along with the BA office staff, guides and their partners. It was wonderful to see a couple of our Buenos Aires guides, Elisabet and Fabian, and an unexpected guest all the way from London - our British guide Edward, who's a fan of spending his winters in Argentina!

Congrats to our team in Buenos Aires for all their diligence, hard work and enthusiasm. It's always a delight to visit our southern colleagues!
