Overview

What about getting to personally know the place where it all started for Diego Maradona? This tour around the streets of La Paternal covers it all: the Diego Armando Maradona stadium (the same ground in which he played for the first time and at his best in Argentina), the Argentinos Juniors’ museum, located under one of the terraces and the Sanctuary, built by the club after Diego’s passing away to collect and protect the thousands of souvenirs that everybody left there for him.
We’ll also get a look of the tranquil neighbourhood in which Diego used to live, walking down the same streets he walked. Things haven’t changed a lot there since he moved in the early 1980s, so you’ll feel how his day to day was. Also, we will learn how big his impact was both in the club and the local community and what is his legacy. The surroundings and the outside walls of the stadium are packed with cool street art not only about Diego but also about other idols of the club we’ll also learn about.

Last but not least, we will visit the Argentinos Juniors’ museum and we’ll tour the stadium. “El Bicho” is a traditional side from the argentinean first division, worlwide known as the craddle of the stars. It has a vigorous academy that provides first class footballers for the national team, from Maradona to Biglia, from Redondo to Nicolas González, from Cambiasso to Riquelme and from Sorin to José Pekerman. We’ll not only know about them all, but also about the history of the club, the link it has with the community, how it became so important and how Maradona made history there. All that with a beautiful and exclusive view of the pitch, the same piece of ground where Diego made his first appearance and sacred soil for Maradonians!

FAQs

Will the Stadiums be open in 2022? At what capacity?

Argentina’s stadiums will return to 100% capacity in November 2021.  We cannot guarantee that restrictions will not return but we will keep all customers up to date on any developments.

Will I have to demonstrate I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

Argentina is in the process of reopening and a range of trials are underway, all of which involve checking customers vaccination status.  We have linked to these requirements above.  While the restrictions may ease we advise all customers looking to travel to Argentina to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 30%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date

What happens if COVID-19 means I cannot travel?

Your deposit can be transferred to a later date (with no time limit), transferred to another tour, or even given to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

Can you cater to dietary needs or requirements?

Our local hosts will do everything they can to cater to travellers’ needs. It’s a good idea to share your requirements at the time of booking so that our host is able to make the required preparations

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room (this is available under extras in the booking flow).

Unique Experience

As a football fan this is one of those days I will always remember. This tour is a roller coaster of emotions while you are traveling back in time. It's really a unique experience that everyone must have if you love football. And if you don't you will also learn about the origins of one the most important personalities of our time. Can't wait to go again. Thanks Tomas (a great storyteller) and Argentinos Jrs for this tour.

Football and Maradona lover? This tour is for you.

Great experience in every step of this tour and thats due to all the knowledge and all the passion which Tomás takes it forward. A journey that has Maradona constantly present and on every moment can be felt the passion of AAAJs fans for their club and sense of belonging. A privilege visit the museum with incredible collection pieces and also access some exclusive sectors of the stadium.

Siempre hay más del Diego

Cuando uno cree que ya sabe muchísimo acerca de Maradona se encuentra con este tour excelente lleno de anécdotas, camisetas usadas por él, un santuario, fotos nunca antes vistas. AAAJ es una parte enorme de su vida y también del fútbol local. La pasión de Tomás en el recorrido se transmite en cada momento, y te hace sentir la historia en cada pasillo de la Paternal. Excelente

Tomás shared with us his infinite knowledge about Maradona, Argentinos Juniors and the neighbourhoods of the stadium. It was thrilling to visit the Maradona's sanctuary and being able to see all the items in the Argentinos' museum. Can't wait to visit the stadium on a Match Day full of fans!
