Today we had a wonderful tour by Marianna in Buenos Aires. She far exceeded our expectations and made us very comfortable and most impressed by her knowledge of all the things and places we visited. We were able to meet local residents who she is friends with which made everything very personalized. We give her a 5+!

We were with Mariana for 2 days. She is fun, knowledgable (if not idealistic), communicates well, very accommodating. Very happy we booked our tour with her!

Mariana was one of the best tour guide I've had in all my years of traveling. Her passion for leading tours is supported by her vast knowledge of the country's history and personalizing the experience with us. I strongly recommend her. You will not be disappointed.

Mariana's foodie tour was one of the best tours we have ever taken. She is engaging, knowledgeable and witty and her English is terrific. She related food to history, geography and social changes while also showing us many different parts of the city. Highly recommended

As first time visitors to Buenos Aires and to Argentina we had lots of questions. Mariana answered all of them and more. From history of Buenos Aires to recent cultural happenings, she was a wonderful guide. Besides all the information, Mariana took us to great examples of Argentinian food and drinks. It is obvious she loves the San Telmo neighborhood and has developed personal relationships with the people there. I would highly recommend this tour and Mariana. Do it!

Mariana was FABULOUS! SO knowledgeable and personable as well. She told us she can also arrange any kind of tours in Argentina, not just Buenos Aires. Five stars out of five.

Mariana met us promptly at our hotel for our Jewish tour of Buenos Aires. She is a history wizard! We learned so much. Visited the site of the attack on the Israeli Embassy, the Jewish Museum, and much more. Mariana is friendly and outgoing and her English is impeccable. Despite the rainy weather we had a wonderful morning. Hope we come back!

We did a walking tour of San Telmo and La Boca with Mariana and, while there, she taught us about life and food in Buenos Aires (BA). She is very knowledgeable about the 2 areas. We learned of the history and saw areas that we would not have discovered or understood without her. Best of she introduced us to mate, steak and dulce de leche. All-in-all I would recommend Mariana- she is organized, loves BA, and is very knowledgeable.

Lisa PerkinsMadison, WI, United States
Mariana was a great tour guide. Her carefully coordinated and curated tour allowed us to see so much of the city, without having to walk the entire day. The car picked us up and drove us between neighborhoods, allowing Mariana to focus on what we were seeing, whether from the car or the sidewalk. She also provided insight into the current political climate, as well as her family's experience in the recent decades through different governments. Her recommendations for restaurants and shopping were amazing!
Jeffrey GreenUnited States
Mariana was one of the best, if not THE best guides we have had on Tours by Locals. She knows the City well and was especially informative about the history of the Jewish people in Argentina. She wove the greater/broader Argentine history and experience into the story of the Jews to give it a very understandable context. What we probably appreciated most, however, was her openness to share her personal experiences as a 20-something living in Argentina. She is a fascinating young woman.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words!! I look forward to meeting again next time you're in Argentina. Happy Hannukah!

Great tour! Mariana was a gracious host and worked with our schedule and luggage. We loved all the spots and everything was delicious.
Mariana provided us with the PERFECT customized tour. She got to know our interests and preferences and designed a 2-day tour of Buenos Aires that was exceptionally good. We saw so much, did so much, ate so much. She is a wealth of information about the country and its history. The car and driver she'd arranged were great as well. We highly recommend her!
Anthony Van SchaickUnited States
Had a wonderful tour with Marina in February, 2019. She is energetic, interesting to talk with as she explains both the relationship between food and history, as well as the current state of politics in Argentina. Highly recommended.

Mariana was a terrific guide. The coordination between her and her driver was precise and wasted no time or steps. She worked with us to develop a tour covering the highlights we most wanted to see and her insights, history and personal stories about each destination made it s special event that we will remember! She also has a great personality and speaks perfect English.
