It is advisable to book ahead, we got our tickets a day in advance for the tour. The theater is stunning, and we had a very enjoyable tour, with a knowledgeable English speaking guide. We even managed look in on the Rigoletto rehearsals too!

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
