Passionate about knowledge and human relations, History, Politics, Philosophy, Art and Gastronomy. I love sharing my knowledge and exchanging experiences with people. I am a History Professor, Graduate in Journalism, Announcer, almost Technician in Museology and Cook. I believe that beyond the classroom, opening one's eyes to reality, going where human activity stands out, where the noises of life are heard, going to the sources themselves, is the best formula for developing a plural and multicultural thought that encompasses a message of peace and harmony. The best place to learn and get to know, to understand reality is the reality itself that is in the streets pulsating the life of the towns. I like to work in a flexible and creative environment in which I can develop all my knowledge, which gives me the opportunity to learn and absorb experiences, as well as create relationships, meet new people and develop lasting bonds over time.

Tour description

A walk along Avenida de Mayo from the Casa Rosada to the National Congress carried out with a respectful and friendly spirit to get closer to the history and secrets of Buenos Aires and Argentina.

Architecture, Art, Philosophy, Photography, Gastronomy, Stories, Indiscretions, Urban Legends, Literature, Myths, Politics and Society of the capital of an empire that never existed.


We will visit the most important civic-political axis of Argentina: Avenida de Mayo from the Casa Rosada to the Palace of Congress.

On our tour we will see emblematic places and monuments:
- Government House.
- The Council.
- The Pyramid of May.

- Cathedral.
- Notable coffees.
- Hotels, restaurants, passages and monuments.
- The Barolo Palace.
- Realestate.
- The Palace of Congress.


We can enter the Cabildo, the Cathedral and the Bicentennial Museum for free whenever they are open.

Each one of those old palaces contains stories of love, madness or death, each one of them has a mystery or a legend. Untangling the threads of those legends or those upset loves is also part of this experience.

We are waiting for you to make new friends and experience the splendor and magic of Buenos Aires with all your senses.

Gabriel es una persona extremadamente amable, buen conversador y con un conocimiento profundo de la historia e idiosincrasia del país. Totalmente recomendable, eso sí, mejor no tener planes para después del tour porque realmente merece la pena tomarse el tiempo en hablar con él.

Gabriel ha sido el mejor guía que podíamos haber tenido; no sólo sabe mucho sobre lo que habla, además lo hace muy ameno.
