Terry McNAIRUnited States
We had a wonderful experience with Fabian. We had a tour totally customized to our interests and so were able to see and do so much in such a short period of time. His knowledge of Buenos Aires specifically and Argentina in general provided us with great context and enhanced our experience. We have no hesitation in recommending him and would gladly use him again should the need arise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Terry, thanks ! You and your wife are excellent travelers, and for me it is a pleasure to work with people like you. You have made everything easier and pleasent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
Fabian is a very experienced guide. We visited the city for 2 days & he was able to tailor 3 tours to ensure that we maximised the flavour of the city & country. He has fantastic knowledge of the local history & geography including fascinating tours of 2 famous cemeteries. He also showed us many suburbs with beautiful tree lined streets & related the history of the tango. We also sampled local cuisine& travelled on the local subway which was a highlight
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorna, thanks a lot for your words. We had the chance of doing things many tourists can't do as you stayed more than one day , and, therefore, we could enjoy the city by car , on foot and by subway. I have enjoyed both days too! Warm regards.
Scott HendersonUnited States
This was my first Tours by Locals experience and it was a great one! Fabian is an excellent tour guide and fun to spend most of the day with. We were interested in the Another Buenos Aires trip and we were doing a separate bike tour the next day. Fabian customized our trip and made sure we didn't have any overlap. Between those two trips, we got a great overview of many different parts of BA. We will be back and we will get Fabian to show us some other interesting parts of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Scott, thanks for your words, I will be here waiting to go on showing more of this beautiful city. Best regards.
My wife and I made a Customized tour for 6 hours with Fabian. Fantastic tour. Walked through 4 parts of the city, Fabian explained everything. Totally the best way to enjoy Buenos Aires and know the city. Tired feet but amazing tour. We were picked up at our flat on time!!, and started walking and enjoying the tour. Even helped us with tickets to Boca game at Bombanera and a Tango show at night. Totally worth while picking 2 extra hours, however tired feet and legs. Thanks Fabian from couple fro Denmark!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brian and Tania, we have walked a lot, indeed, but the day , the temperature were fine. Tired feet for me too, haha. All in all , we have spent a very nice day.

We disembarked from a Silver Seas cruise on 6/2/18 some 2 hours late delayed by port congestion.Fabian was to pick us up give a tour of Buenos Aires and deliver us to the airport to fly to Iguazú.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your words! Be sure we have covered as much as we could, you can say now you know Buenos Aires. Warm regards.

I give this tour a 5 star rating. Fabian was fantastic!! He was informative about Buenos Aires and its people. He also knows about the Jewish Heritage and the relationship of the Argentinian people between them. I would recommend anyone to use Fabian. He is considerate to his clients and was on time when he picked us up at the pier, Finally, he went above and beyond making sure we saw everything we wanted to see, and making sure he didn't leave anything out.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lynette, thanks for your review. We have definitely spent a wonderful Sunday summer day in Buenos Aires. All the best for all of you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Amanda, thanks for your words. 6 walking hours really flew , as we cross all over the city joining buildings and people through the stories. You were great.
Bill BanholzerUnited States
What can I say about a Super Star tour guide. We loved Fabian. We had 8 from the USA and it was like a party all day with education, laughs, and a great time with a wonderful person. We all learned so much. I have had guides all around the world and have never had one more diverse (and easy to understand) his English was GREAT which meant a lot to us all. We went to lunch and everyone knew him and it was the best we had eaten in all of South America. Fabian earned our respect of knowledge, was diverse.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bill, thanks for your words. I'm speechless... Whenever my self esteem is low I will read this review again and again. You and your group were fantastic, always ready and eager to listen to my stories. I will never forget you.

Fabian is extremely knowledgeable of the history of Buenos Aires. He was very pleasant and flexible. He took us to the key places in Buenos Aires. We were a small group of seven and we enjoyed the personal attention. Buenos Aires is a great city and he pointed out interesting facts of the history of the city and the men that made it great.The van that we were transported in was big and comfortable. He also recommended some restaurants that turned out to be very good. We would definitely recommend him agai

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Brian, thanks for your message ! I also had a fun day, you were very kind. Best regards. Fabian
Dennis OsbornUnited States
Fabian was a most excellent tour guide and was very accommodating on our recent Buenos Aires tour. He arrived on time and in exactly the location he told us to meet him. We had a very informative and entertaining day with Fabian exploring a city he clearly loves to talk about. We asked for and got a chance to eat a typical Argentine lunch at a great place. You will not be disappointed with Fabian!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dennis, thanks for your words, what a nice group and experience for me too! Kind regards.
Carol MayersUnited States
Fabian was far beyond a five star tour guide. He catered to every one of our special requests, including stopping at specialized souvenir shops and going out of his way to seek food for our specialized diet. Fabian made us feel especially comfortable at every planned stop and even more so at the extra places we requested. If any visitor needs special treatment, we recommend him in the highest regard. Fabian explained each stop in detail, and was very patient with our eight year old grandson. Great job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol, thanks for your kind words, it has been my pleasure too, as I have learnt from you too. I love your love of Buenos Aires... All the best .
Fabian was a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide. I would highly recommend him for a tour of Buenos Aires.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really enjoy a tour when I see an united , respectful and curious family , eager to learn about the city and the country. I thank YOU for the possibility of having been your tour guide in BA.
Fabian was one of the best guides we have ever had. We had the pleasure of having him show us around Buenos Aires for three days. His knowledge is incredible and he is an amazing story teller. He not only took us to the touristy spots but also showed us the less touristy places so we could experience a little of the local life. As we were travelling with older parents he always made sure they were comfortable and that they could keep up with the pace. Thank you Fabian for making our trip so memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Arianna, thanks for your kind words. You and your family were great and easygoing. I really enjoyed those days, learning from all of you too. And thanks a lot for letting me practice my Italian...Grazie mille e buone vacanze!
Fabian was prompt, pleasant and professional with good fluency in English. He was knowledgeable and passionate about Buenos Aires. He not only provided us with good information about the sites that we were visiting but also gave us insights into the culture and lifestyle of Buenos Aires. We all (group of 8) enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend Fabian.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments, I will take them into account. I have spent a wonderful day with all of you.
Fabien is a professional and personable guide, who demonstrates an obvious love and passion for Buenos Aries. Thanks for a wonderful and informative morning. Thoroughly enjoyable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Howard, thanks for your words. I'm happy when my travelers are happy. Best regards.
Dev M.United States
This was an outstanding tour. Food is so intricately linked to the culture of Buenos Aires that if you really want a feel for the city this is in my opinion a major component. Fabian has great knowledge of the food and the history behind the meals, and he'll take you to a number of outstanding establishments representative of all aspects of the B-A food scene. Be prepared to eat some great food!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dev and Cathy, thank you for letting me show you all about BA food culture. Your words and advice help me to improve my service every day. Hope to see you again!

Fabian, was prompt and accommodating. One member of our group was limited to light walking and Fabian carefully took that into account. His information was delivered as conversation, not narration. He was flexible as our focus changed during the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marcos, thanks for your words, you have been very kind to me, and I also enjoyed the tour and your company.
Jon L.Dorena, OR, United States
From reading Fabian's reviews, I anticipated an informative tour of Buenos Aires. What we experienced, however, was an encyclopedic presentation of Argentina and Buenos Aires! Negotiating the city's horrific traffic - no problem. Combining driving and walking to maximize our time - efficiently accomplished. The restaurant for lunch, with empanadas to die for - a veratible "Hernando's Hideway"! Fabian welcomed our questions, expounded on topics of our interest, and regaled us with his stories. A+++!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias!!!! What a day we have spent! All the best!
Alexis SermenoUnited States
Fabian, is an excellent tour guide! He knows the history of Argentina, was very insightful about the places we visit and flexible to accommodate my interest and needs during my 1/2 day private tour! I highly recommend Fabian to anyone who is looking for a fun experience in Argentina. Will definitely pursue his services when I return to Argentina to visit with my family!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias Carlos, definitely, we have spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon, probably, the best time of the week to visit it. (By the way, Boca lost the game ) I look forward to meeting your family. Abrazo!
We took a full day Buenos Aires The B side tour with Fabian. What a great choice we made. He showed us things about Buenos Aires we would have missed otherwise. His knowledge was expansive,and able to give us great insights about Argentina. He was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend him.

Ron GinsburgUnited States
Very Organized and Knowledgable We had just 1 day to get our list of sites seen and Fabian helped us see things on our schedule in our own way which in this case was "fast". When time permits we will come back and use him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leon!

Steve C.Portland, OR, United States
My wife and I enjoyed three days with Fabian, covering a lot of the city of Buenos Aires and surrounding countryside, and in the process learning about the people, history, customs, politics. Fabian speaks excellent English, is friendly, punctual, skilled, knows the city intimately and was a superb guide. He tailored his services to our needs and desires and what could have been three days wandering around blindly became three profitable days well spent. We highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Steve, muchas gracias for your lovely words. I have enjoyed your company as well as your wife Adrienne's. We have covered many aspects of Buenos Aires and surroundings , it seemed that time flew! Best wishes ! F.

Thank you Fabian for far exceeding our expectations!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Margaret, thanks for your kind words to me. As you , and you party, have noticed , the B side tour is a special one, and it not for any one ...I'm so happy you have enjoyed as much as I did. Muchas gracias! Fabian

Excellent tour. Fabian had a great overall plan to show us the highlights of the whole city. He flexed the plan to spend more time and provided more info on sights where we showed more inteest.

Certainly I would love to show more about the city when you come back, believe me, there is much more to see... See you! Fabian
Cindy StephanUnited States
Fabian was not only an excellent guide of the city but it was great to talk about Argentinian life with him as well. Being a tour operator in the US, I am always searching for that "perfect" guide who doesn't have a script but rather shows you their city through their eyes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cindy, thanks for your kind words. Your mother and yourself are very interesting people to talk to. It has been a pleasure to me too. Hope you can come back to Argentina some day. Saludos! Fabian
Robert MaysUnited States
Our guide Fabian, was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and passionate about Buenos Aires and Argentina. This tour was at the beginning of our 3 day pre-cruise visit in BA. It worked well as our additional days in BA allowed us to explore more of the highlights we originally experienced with Fabian. One on one...it's your time and no one else's. Yes, a little more expensive but worth every penny. It was an enriching and quality experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert and Jamie, you have been outstanding passengers, and therefore, everything is easier and more pleasant. All the best!!
Nadav SharirRaleigh, NORTH CAROLINA, United States
Fabian was an excellent tour guide, one of the best ones we ever had. I have a walking disability and taking this into consideration, he always brought us as close as possible to the city attractions. He also helped us physically as needed since we have limitations. He showed high knowledge and expertise in the area of the city of Buenos Aires. He speaks perfect English and we definitely recommend him for a private tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nadav, it has been a pleasure to be you guide in BA, and I am so glad you have enjoyed the tour as much as I did. Kind regards, Fabian

We had a wonderful day touring Buenos Aires with Fabian on Saturday, February 27, 2016. Fabian took such good care of us and we really feel we saw as much of Buenos Aires as we could in one day.

Terry SharpeUnited Kingdom
This was a very interesting, informative and fun tour. Our tour guide Fabian, informed my wife and I that he was brought up in Buenos Aires. Therefore, as you may expect, he was very knowledgable about the history of the city. I am certain we would not have visited some of the areas Fabian took us to had we attempted this on our own. Overall this was money well spent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks !!
David EmanuelNew Zealand

Jean PerlmutterUnited States
We have used private tour guides dozens of times. Fabian is right at the top of them. He designed the tour to meet our needs and requests. He was extremely polite, professional, and helpful. He designed the tour to accentuate history which was our main request. We are four retired teachers spoke English better than any of us. His knowledge of the facts of the city kept our interest at a very high level. As you can see I would give him the highest reccomendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jean! Thank you for your very kind words to me...It has been a real pleasure , spending my birthday working for you... I loved your questions and true interest! Muchas gracias!!!
Fabian was waiting for us at Buenos Aires port. We immediately warmed to him as he was very enthusiastic about showing us his beautiful city. One of the people in our tour was very interested in some 2nd world war history and asked if we could go to the German cemetery. Fabian fit this in, no problem, even though it slightly changed our original tour. Fabian took us to a very nice Argentinian steak house after checking what we wanted to have for lunch. I would highly recommend Fabian as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Jackie! and thank you very much for your words. Honestly, the visit to the German cemetery has been something very special and unique, I'm glad that you have enjoyed as much as myself....and also the steak house ... Muchas gracias! and enjoy life.... F

Joel PlotnickUnited States
Fabian was an excellent guide for our cruise disembarkation tour of Buenos Aires. He is extremely knowledgeable of this incredible city and is a excellent story teller. He was extremely flexible in putting together a customized itinerary. This was the first visit to BA for my nephews while I have been a regular business traveler since the 1980's. Fabien was very security conscious and in where he parked the vehicle. BA is a very save city but having someone like Fabian put us at ease.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Joel!
Charles FleischmanUnited States
Our guide was the wonderful Fabian. We were met by Fabian at the pier . We arrived earlier than the time we told Fablan but he was there first. We had about 6 hours to see BA before we needed to get to the airport for our flight. We had an enjoyable, informative, and thorough experience on our tour. The van easily accommodated us and our luggage and our driver was very professional. He is everything you could hope for in a tour guide. I highly recommend him and his organization
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Chuck, your party was wonderful! We have spent a beautiful day in BA. Hope you can come back... All the best. Fabian
John MooneyUnited States
Fabian was AWESOME ! He truly went above and beyond to show us the city and do what we wanted to do. He arranged for NY Eve so that we could have a wonderful evening along the river with fireworks. We were delayed getting off the boat but he still gave us a full tour. He not only could tell us history but also political insight into the country in a neutral manner. He was very easy to understand. He was also candid about not recommending some things we thought we might want to do.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh John, muchas gracias for your very kind words to me . Clients like you are really friends who help me to improve my job tour after tour. I have also spent a wonderful day together. Hasta pronto! F.
Fabian was very helpful in maximizing our short time together. He was very informed and made our time with him enjoyable. We got a first overview taste of Buenos Aires and feel that we would highly recommend him to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas Gracias! Keep on enjoying BA! Happy New Year~!

Fabian planned a wonderful day for us in Buenos Aires and even had umbrellas ready for several brief interludes of liquid sunshine. He was very knowledgeable about Argentina's history and past. We had a busy and interesting day and felt we saw a good part of the city. His English is excellent. If you use him as a tour guide we feel you will be well taken care of!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh! Muchas gracias Barry...Only you and Jill could make this rainy and cloudy day a real sunshine day....You have made everything easier! Good luck with your Spanish, and have a wonderful cruise!

Margaret MeyerUnited States
Fabian was a wonderful guide to introduce us to Buenos Aires. He was there at the appropriate time and patiently waited while our delayed luggage finally arrived. Even though we which were a bit late, he gave us a full tour... He had to be flexible in order to pass around the congestion in the center city due to political demonstrations. He individualized for us, and pointed out places near our hotel that we might want to visit later in our stay. His English is very easy to understand...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Margaret, thank you for your words. And thanks for the information provided later, that will help me to improve and update my speech. Muchas gracias! F.

Fabian right on time to meet us at airport. Nice and clean transportation. Great history lesson of the city. We went to a street fair. Fabian was very attentive to making sure we were comfortable. Took us to the best restaurant in Buenos Aires for empanadas!! Couldn't stop eating them. "Delicious". Would use him again for sure.

Theodore KolvaUnited States
We scheduled Fabian the night before when we found we had extra free time. He was very gracious to accept on short notice, and we were lucky he did. A native of Buenos Aires, his tour was customized to our desires, he covered history, government, politics and showed us many different parts of the city, covering both affluent newer areas, and traditional middle class areas. His knowledge was impressive, and his manner easy going, congenial and humorous. We recommend his services highly. Terrific tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your very nice words. We accomplished a wonderful tour thanks to your curiosity and your attitude of wanting to know as much as you can of my city. Gracias! Fabian

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ron, thank you for your words, they encourage me to go on bringing the best possible service. We have spent three special days through the streets of BA, which I will never forget. You and your wife were awesome. Get well! Best regards, Fabian
Fabian provided a wonderful tour of Buenos Aires for us. We visited fabulous places that we never would have found ourselves. We covered 5 major districts and their attractions. Fabian is very knowledgable about his city and history and shared with us some fascination stories. He took us to a a great restaurant where we got top service and enjoyed a great steak lunch in a local atmosphere. I highly recommend you include a tour with Fabian when in Buenos Aires. Gracias Fabian

Richard BellCalabasas, CALIFORNIA, United States
Second day so we focused on the northern part of the city, Recoleta cemetery, etc. Fabian is a great storyteller and made his historical knowledge memorable. He drove us in his car which was most convenient. Even dropped us off at Teatro Colon so we could take a guided tour. Thanks, Fabian!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and your wife! We have spent two wonderful days and I'm sure now you have a very good notion and knowledge of my city...Kind regards... F
Richard BellCalabasas, CALIFORNIA, United States
Fabian was terrific. My wife and I scheduled two 4-hour tours with him on different days, starting at 9:00. He wanted us to see the original city and less glamorous southern areas the first day so that we would have a more authentic flavor. He certainly knows his political history and exudes the pride of being a Porteno. Great command of English. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias Richard!
Fabian was a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. He was there as promised to pick us up from the cruise terminal in Buenos Aires. We took our luggage to the hotel first and continued on our way. We left the itinerary entirely up to him and were not disappointed. Tip - We did our tour on a Sunday which meant traffic was greatly reduced and we therefore covered ground much quicker and were able to spend more time at the tourist sites. We would have no hesitation recommending TBL and Fabian Ali. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words. Kind regards! F
Dave CottinghamUnited States
Fabian was great. His knowledge of history was appreciated while keeping descriptions easy to understand. The tour was as described.

Hope ElliotUnited States
My husband and I were absolutely thrilled to have such a knowledgeable and personable tour guide as Fabian. He was extremely thorough, knew every inch of the city, and the best part was when he took us to eat lunch in an area where there were no tourists. It was the three of us and we were the only tourists. Everything about the tour was extremely enjoyable. We also liked the idea of going in his car rather than a tour van. I would highly recommend him. His English was excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hope , thank you for your kind words , they help me to bring a better service every day! Cheers! Fabian
Cathy RobertsUnited States
We had Fabian Ali as our guide in Buenos Aires and it was the best city tour we have ever been on. He gave us a thorough tour of the various districts and high lights of the city which he made interesting and fun. We have recommended Tours By Locals along the way and since I have been back to work I have told everyone in the office how wonderful Fabian is as a guide. Fabian made us feel like we should have stayed in the city longer to enjoy more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words to me! Thank you for your recommendations too! You were great! Muchas gracias! Fabian
Kathy McGloneUnited States
Fabian was most accommodating to seeing that our checklist of sights was met. He was proud of his city and we loved his enthusiasm. He was well versed in history, city geography, folk lore and modern economics. Would ask for him again and again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias Kathy! Your words encourage me to go on giving the best to my clients. Kind regards! F
Tom BaileyUnited States
Fabian was on time picking us up from the port and planned our tour efficiently to visit the places we wanted to visit while he took us to many sites that he usually shows. His English was very good and he delivered us to the airport with time to spare. I would definitely use him again and I would highly recommend Fabian.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tom, thank you for your kind words to me. We have spent a wonderful day together. All the best! Fabian
Ann WilliamsUnited States
Highly recommend Fabian! We learned so much and can't wait to come back. Loved La Boca, his Recoleta Cementry stories, and the lunch we had in San Telmo based on his recommendations. Very informative, enjoyable, and prompt. He also set up a great tango show for us the next night.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words, you made everything easier and more enjoyable! You both were excellent listeners, I will be here when you come back to BA. Cheers! Fabian
Fassil BelayUnited States
Fabian is one of the nicest tour guides I have ever used. He is very kind, patient, and easy going. He has rescheduled one of my days on my request due to cloudy conditions. He even brought me "mate", a traditional Argentinian drink just to show me how it tastes, isn't nice? I recommend Fabian for anyone who wants to see Buenos Aires! Thanks Fabian
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Fassil we spent two wonderful days in BA, you now can say you have a wide knowledge of my city! Kind regards.

Heinz LuckPerak, 30020, Malaysia
Fabian has been very flexible, very informative and has delievered us a wealth of cultural, political and historical information and views. Fabian also has been very adaptive to our "on-the-spot" questions and requests, no matter whether they have been aligned or not with the instant situation. He is a very entertaining host with a professional, and the same time, very approachable and warm personality. We can highly recommend his services to anyone interested.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words! Enjoy the rest of your trip!
We had a 4 hour tour of Buenos Aires with Fabian. The tour was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Fabian is a very good guide with fluent English. He did not just show us the sights, he talked about how all relate to the history of BA and Argentina. Fabian is very knowledgeable and passionate about BA, and no matter what you asked he took time to answer and explain whether it be political history, economics or football! We would highly recommend Fabian to any others seeking same experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rob, thank you very much for your kind words! Time really flew in a wonderful conversation with the four of you. We spent a very nice Sunday morning ,though a bit rainy! :) Kind regards! Fabian

Eleanor FiumaraUnited Kingdom
We really enjoyed our tour with Fabian. He took us to all the places we wanted to visit in the limited time available. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We opted to visit the places that would have been time-consuming to get to by public transport during our time with him. He was knowledgeable about the different areas and kept things light and interesting for us. We should have stayed for longer in Buenos Aires. Thanks Fabian, for allowing us to make the most of our short visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias Eleanor! As I have told you , you need a couple of days at least to come to know my city hahaha. Best regards!!! Fabian

Susan StallardPALM BEACH, FLORIDA, United States
Understood what we wanted to see and do; one item on our wish list was to visit a jazz club. Fabian, having little experience in the world of jazz, researched the possibilities thoroughly and presented a number of options. His English skills are very good, he is knowledgable, personable; we thoroughly enjoyed the tour with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words, next time we will visit a good Jazz Club! Best regards!

Lynne ScarboroUnited States
Fabian is fun, funny, smart, patient, and accommodating - the perfect guide. As we built our knowledge and interests over our three days with him, we were able to modify our tour as we went along. It was great to so quickly build a rapport with someone who thought on his feet and adjusted to us constantly. By the end we were saying goodbye to a friend. Thanks, Fabian, for sharing your city with us. It was a great way to learn BA!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynne, thank you for your comments indeed, I also had the feeling of saying goodbye to three wonderful friends; we have spent three great days!.See you in LA! Best wishes, Fabian.
Lynne ScarboroUnited States
We loved our time with Fabian! He made BA so very accessible and understandable. He helped us dig deeper on understanding Argentina and BA in particular than just site seeing. He gave us great advice on how to spend our time when we were on our own as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lynne! And Happy New Year for you all! Fabian
Lynne ScarboroUnited States

While this was an airport pickup not a tour our guide was very informative and gave us a number of good ideas for the next few days of our trip. Bases on this experience I will look for tours by locals drivers for future airport pickups. This was a great way to start or trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you indeed ! Hope you have enjoyed BA ! Kind regards, Fabian
