What people are saying about Buenos Aires

The visit to the stadium was wonderful. Organization, guide, security, all perfection. For a few years I have visited the Real Madrid and Barcelona stadium in Spain, so it was possible to make a coparacion and to conclude that the visits, undoubtedly, are at the same level. Gracias, River Plate. We are Brazilian and my childhood is River River and it has been very happy with the visit. I recommend it to everyone.

First tour doesn't start till 10:55. Tours are in Spanish and English. Very helpful and friendly guides. You get to walk round the pitch, through changing rooms an press area. There's a small museum as well.

All very well, the museum is very nice, we regret not being able to enter the court due to renovations, but everything else very well
