My name is Richard Jabs, and I live in Wilsonville, Oregon. I am writing you as I would like to recommend the services of Marcelo Mansilla, a private tour guide I hired during my stay in Buenos Aires - Argentina, last May 08.
Buenos Aires is a very interesting, eclectic city, but at the same time really overwhelming- so many neighborhoods, sights and history. I highly recommend Marcelo‘s services: after discussing all the possible touring options and hearing his suggestions, he organized an entire itinerary according to what I was interested in doing including history, arquitecture, gastronomy, art and shopping.
Marcelo is a one in a million: he gave me the best tour I could imagine! His knowledge was quite extensive and I learned much about Argentina from a local perspective and not just some generic tour.
Marcelo Mansilla is a professional with an University degree on Tourism, extremely fluent in English, and can be contacted through his website, http://www.ciceroneba.com.ar , or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org
I definitely would recommend his services to anyone who is traveling to Buenos Aires and does not like big group tours, but would rather see the city through the eyes of a local.
