Went to: Boca Juniors – Arsenal
There is nothing like a Boca match, and the experience with Ignacio and Valentín was wonderful. The pick-up was prompt and the pre-game meal and beers were at a delightful restaurant near the stadium. Ignacio and Valentín were top-notch guides, taking time to answer any questions we had and engaging in soccer-fandom conversations with the group. The guides helped make the entry and exit from the stadium as smooth as possible.
Went to: River Plate v Boca Juniors
Ramiro took me to the Superclásico in El Monumental and it was an experience I will remember till the day I die. The word Superclásico says it all and words fall short of describing this experience. I visited hundreds of football matches around the globe, but the pre-match atmosphere in and around the stadium was beyond comparison. I am very glad to have met him and that I experienced the Superclásico together with him!
Went to: Racing Club Matchday Experience
Mariano was our host and one of the best I can think about. His english was great and was knowledgable about Argentinian football and Racing in particular. I like the fact we had a Choripan at the traditional BBQs outside the stadium (never seen that before in Europe or in Argentina). The spots in the stadium were great.
Went to: Buenos Aires Bike Tour
This was the best way possible to end my trip. Barbi is a super knowledgeable, and fun guide to lead the tour. She was able to give us a great amount of interesting information about each neighbourhood’s history, the football, the people and the culture.
Went to: San Lorenzo v Huracán
Great experience! Fabio was a fantastic guide. With fluent English, he guided us through the Boedo neighborhood, home of San Lorenzo, before the game and had an incredible amount of background knowledge and funny anecdotes about the history of the club. After visiting a local restaurant, we headed to the stadium. Again, Fabio was always attentive, taught us songs of the club and celebrated the game with us.
Went to: Racing Club v Independiente
I had a great time again in South America and this match was on the bucket list for many years and lived up to the hype. I had gone to San Lorenzo earlier in the day with a friend and these guys waited for me after the game to take me to Avellaneda. They are obviously well connected in terms of football in Buenos Aires and I would highly recommend booking a trip with them to any game. They will look after you. Do not hesitate to ask them a question prior to booking. Thanks to Valentin and Alvaro, two top lads.
