What you'll do

We are going to discover Buenos Aires, with a local vision. It will not be a traditional tour, but I will tell you the true history of each place.
The objective is to tear down all the myths that usually accompany our history. You will leave Buenos Aires, knowing our true story. And you will have the opportunity to ask everything you want. Is a semi private activity.
We will start the tour in La Boca, where we will talk about Italian immigration, and why tango was not born there. Then, we will go to La Recoleta, to meet our presidents and different leaders in the cemetery.
From there, we will pass through the Abasto neighborhood, where the tango was born.
By subway will arrive at Plaza de Mayo, to see if San Martín was a Mason, and we will finish at San Telmo.

Hello! I'm Cata. First of all I'm Buenos Aires, and I'm a historian. I love walking through my city, looking for those little details that make it wonderful.
I dedicate myself to study and investigate history beyond what books tell, study from its architecture, which for me is the most human demostration.

Catalina es culta y amable, conoce bien su ciudad y es la mirada insider que yo estaba buscando más allá del típico tour superficial.

Amazing experience with Cata! She is really knowledgeable and takes time to explain all aspect of Argentinian lifestyle. She answered to all our questions. She gave us a sense of Tango culture and the unique vibe in Buenos Aires. She also speaks fluently French to facilitate the communication. We went to the most interesting places in Buenos Aires. It was an unique experience.
