Explore the palaces of Buenos Aires

Get skip-the-line access to one of the world’s most popular opera houses, the Teatro Colón (Colon Theater), on this 2.5-hour guided tour.

Renowned for its phenomenal acoustics and stunning architecture, the Colón theatre is considered one of the best opera houses in the world, together with La Scala in Milán, the Opera Garnier in Paris and the Royal Opera House in London.

Designed by Francesco Tamburini, Victor Meano and Jules Dormal, and built over 20 years, the theatre opened in 1908 and went on to host some of the most important conductors, singers and dancers of the twentieth century, including Igor Stravinsky, Herbert von Karajan, Daniel Barenboim, Maria Callas, Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, Rudolf Nureyev, Julio Bocca and Maximiliano Guerra.

It reopened to the public in 2010 following an ambitious restoration and renovation project undertaken by the city government.

After visiting the Opera House, you will continue with a walking tour with your local tour guide where you will get the chance to dicover the palaces of Buenos Aires.

Excellent tour. The theater is dreamed. And Graciela, a genius when it comes to telling the story.

Where culture and architecture collide Eduardo - Apr 2018

The walking tour with Laura was excellent. She was very informative and flexible with the programme. We arrived at the Colon theatre with time to spare and sadly that's where we parted. The tour of the theatre was also very interesting. It's a little sad that they can't take you behind the scenes but all in all a very interesting and enjoyable tour.
