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.
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.
Patricia Jean A.South Africa

Thanks much to Fabian! You made our group trip unforgettable! Fabian was a wonderful tour guide and his knowledge of history and architecture served to enhance our experience and appreciation of Buenos Aires, Argentina. We highly recommend him!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jenny, thanks a lot for your lovely review. It's been a wonderful group, and I will always remember my birthday , with the whole bus singing the Happy Birthday in Korean. Magnificent.
Wonderful city tour! Fabian was prompt, energetic and very enthusiastic about sharing his city and country's history and culture. His tour was all encompassing as it took us all over the city and allowed us to immerse ourselves in its past and present. His passion for Buenos Aires was infectious - we loved our time in the city and had such a fun day. Our driver and mode of transportation were great! They made us feel very welcomed and took good care of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Brian, thanks for your message ! I also had a fun day, you were very kind. Best regards. Fabian
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 .
Marcos MarchenaUnited States
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!
Henry BaggettUnited States
Fabian was truly an outstanding and professional guide, who imparted his significant knowledge and love of Buenos Aires to us!!! He personalized our tour, combining Highlights of BA with his Side B Secrets of BA and it was a perfect tour!!! Thank you, Fabian, for bringing your lovely city to life for us!!! Gracias!!! Mary and Cliff Baggett
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary and Cliff, many thanks for your words! All of you made things easier by being so kind! Gracias!
Leon OlverUnited States
Fabian met us at the BA cruise terminal, and spent the day with us, showing us around and taking us to San Telmo for their street market. (It was a Sunday, and this was at my request.) He is a wonderful historian, extremely knowledgeable, and fun to visit with. We enjoyed our time together, and he dropped us at the airport exactly on time. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leon!
Dan LaurenUnited States
Fabian did a great job. Knows the area, history, and speaks great English. Our ship docked late, he was right there to meet us, and he altered the tour so we could still see the highlights and got us to the airport in time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dan, thanks for your words. The four of you were great, and we spent a wonderful day together! F
Maryann A.United States
Fabian is an extraordinary guide. His professionalism coupled with his knowledge and his operating style are of the highest standards and should be replicated throughout the tour guide industry. His personal consideration for us ,his clients, never waivered over almost 9 hours. His historical knowledge and ability to engage and maintain our interest in his descriptive narrative made out time with him amazing and so valuable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Maryann...what can I say after your words?...gracias!! muchas gracias!! Together with John , we have spent a wonderful summer day in Buenos Aires. Safe travels to the White Continent!

Fabian Ali is an excellent guide. His Buenos Aires city tour is the best city tour we have ever done.

Andrea LatishUnited States
Fabin was a fabulous guide! He was so knowledgeable about everywhere we went to in this city. We were lucky the city was closed, traffic was little. We ate at a steakhouse yummo! We saw all the districts of the city, the colored bldgs, old area with tango in the street. A totally fun day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Andrea, it has been a wonderful way of finishing 2016. Happy 2107! Thank you very much.
James McLellanMontgomey, TEXAS, United States
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. He has a broad knowledge of lots of subjects so he was able to answer all of our questions and provide details. We would recommend him without any reservations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias Jim, we have spent a wonderful time . Your words help me to improve myself every day and give the best to my customers. All the best! F.
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
William BrownfieldUnited States
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. We were picked up at the port and then at the end of our day, Fabian dropped us at he airport. He is so knowledgeable and entertaining. Fabian was very accommodating to us and we would recommend Fabian to everyone who wants a great day in Buenos Aires.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank for your kind words. I have also spent a lovely day with the four of you! Fabian

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 picked us up at the airport and took us into Buenos Aires.He gave us a great tour of the highlights of BA and gave us a lot of history and local flavor. We had a great lunch at a local restaurant and he was exactly what we needed to get our trip off to a perfect start.

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 a wonderful guide. Informative and knowledgable, very easy and accomodatingand very friendly. He showed us some interesting and unusual spots a gave us an excellent perspective on Buenos Aires. Arrangements were easy and straight forward to make. He was prompt and his vehicle was quite comfortable Arrangements were through Tours by Local and they were likewise very easy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Howard , thank you for your words. You and your group were fantastic, your curiosity to know about my city , made everything easier. Muchas gracias!
Ron MeltsnerUnited States
Fabian was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable which made the tours more interesting. His command of English is very good since he worked in Florida for 2 years. He is also a very good driver. I would highly recommend him
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 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. We loved his personality and ability to customize the tour to fit our requests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias!
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
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
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!
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!
