Visited Boca first really informative with good guide, downside of this tour there was a match on at River plate that night so only got to see museum and not ground tour. I felt this was really bad of the tour company for not checking this out and giving me chance to change date.
Great stadium to go through. Take a jacket. Even on a sunny day this part of BA gets a cool breeze. Exhibits have English translations. There was a bit of waiting around before going through the stadium proper but a very good museum. A translator for the stadium guide would be good but we had a tour guide to assist. Fun tour and very informative. Well worth seeing to understand how high and steep the stands are.
The tour was not in English as sold. The guide translated but it loses something. Not enough time to look around. The tour was combined with those doing the second tour so we had to hurry and be dropped off not at the starting point but a t another spot. I think the tour could be arranged on your own for less and with bettter results.
The tour gave a really interesting insight into the two clubs and my guide Walter was fantastic. Not only did he give me a guided tour of the grounds and the explain their history, between the grounds in the taxi he told me lots more about the city and pointed out sights and areas of interest!
If you're a football fan and visiting Buenos Aries I would definitely recommend this...
Eugenia was an excellent guide. She knew a lot about the teams and stadiums, and she also told us a lot about Buenos Aries as we passed various sites in the taxis on the way to and from the stadiums. Seeing the Bombanera and Monumental stadiums from the inside was a real treat. I would recommend this tour to any football fanatic like me.
I´m a passionate football fan so I was really looking forward to visiting both stadiums.
My tour guide Claudia was brilliant.
Not only did I learn from her knowledge of the history of the two clubs, Boca and River.
But she also taught me much about the history of Buenos Airies and Argentina.
She also acted as my personal translator and photographer,
taking well over a hundred photos for me on my phone.
I cannot praise her enough, she was great company for 5 hours and an excellent tour guide.
