While a lot of guides will tell you that they’d always wanted to become a guide, I didn't always know. Yet, I’ve been a guide for nearly 20 years now, and I can still remember the exact moment I decided it was for me. I used to be an avid mountain climber, and my favorite climbing destination was Bariloche in the south of Argentina. I was on a trip and resting at the main little square in the city, carrying my backpack with all my equipment, my rope, carabiners, and what not. Before I knew it, I was surrounded by a group of women asking me a series of questions about climbing. One woman then asked if I was a tour guide. I wasn’t at the time, but I remember wondering to myself, why not? That year, I started studying for my license in tourism, and the rest is history.
I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, so I love hosting tours here in my home city. But even before I started offering city tours, I was a mountain guide in Patagonia. After five years guiding in the south of Argentina, I returned to Buenos Aires because I wanted to help travelers explore the city like a local instead of as a tourist. I wanted to lead unique tours that would take travelers to the best hidden restaurants, show them the city’s rich history and culture, and bring them to parts of the city that only the Porteños (Buenos Aires natives) knew about. I also wanted to return to my second home, Tigre Delta, where I spent part of my childhood on a farm, living in the fresh air and nature. I love how through my tours I get to show both of my worlds: the bustling city of Buenos Aires and the quiet, peaceful town of Tigre. I can take you on a private boat ride through the islands of Tigre, and in the same day, show you the Porteño customs and culture shared amongst the residents of Buenos Aires.
I am a major history buff, and since I have a lot of Argentine pride, I especially love my city's history. Buenos Aires is full of fascinating art and architecture shaped by its tumultuous past, making it a great place for history lovers like me to live. I am especially fascinated with the history of Evita Peron because her story has really shaped our country and is such a controversial debate still today!
I have never traveled to Europe, so for my 50th birthday I’ve decided it’s about time to finally make this dream come true. It will be absolutely amazing to go to Barcelona and see the incredible works of Gaudi that I've admired for so long. After seeing all of Gaudi's most famous art in Spain, I’d love to go to the homelands of my grandparents, France and Italy, and experience firsthand the cultures I grew up hearing about.
