I couldn't let an all too brief visit to Buenos Aires pass without a visit to a football match. The tour was very well organised and our guide and the other tour participants were extremely friendly. Picked up before the match and dropped back to the hotel straight afterwards, tickets etc all looked after and some great eating recommendations by our tour guide. Best of all, the football was of very high quality - and the reaction of the Independiente fans to the home side's late equalizer to Patronato first half opener is something that will stay with me for a long time!
Really enjoyed our football game ( last of the season) at Banfield despite the fact the final score was 3-2 against them. Wonderful to experience the atmosphere generated in a local game
Many thanks to Matthieu and Pablo for guiding us so well through the experience.
They were excellent.
The atmosphere was electric. Our guide Mathew was excellent and looked after everybody in group. Felt completely safe. Was picked up and dropped off perfectly as planned with a good sized group. I would totally recommend.
We were able to see a match between Racing Club and River Plate. The atmosphere of the Estadio Presidente Juan Domingo Perón was the most memorable part of the day. Walking to the stadium, you could feel the fans' energy. People were singing, drums were pounding and the smells of food vendors were around you. When the match began, the home Racing Club crowd really poured their heart into every chant. The victory showed how much the home field advantage helped out.
Our guide gave very thorough explanations on how to keep you and your possessions safe. It would have been nice if he filled us in on some of the chants so we could sing along, but he admitted that he was a fan of the away team. Overall, a fantastic experience.
Interesting and fun evening. We saw River Plate which is not as wild as Boca Junior; very quit and family friendly experiance. A lot of police agents and no alcohol permitted in stores and restaurang within ten blocks was one of the reason.
It was an exciting evening and the tour guide was great...he picked everyone up at about 4 different locations right on time...he was a nice guy...gave us good insight into the two teams playing (River Plate and All Boys) and was very organized about keeping us all together. We had perfect seats on the centre/sideline. I would recommend viatour and their people in Buenos Aires to friends going there. The booking was easy, friendly and a fair price. We felt secure and well looked after.
A once in a lifetime experience! It was great being able to get to a football game in Buenos Aires and seeing the famous River Plate take on the All Boys! The atmosphere was crazy and the fans sure do love their team. If you're a football fan, this is not to be missed!
