Greg, the General Manager, is an Irishman and New Yorker who fell in love with Buenos Aires long ago.
Eduardo, the Marketing Director, is a Colombian architect-artist and alchemist who lives in New York, Buenos Aires and Berlin. Eduardo's Artworks have been exhibited in galleries and museums. His works are in several corporate collections. Both Greg and Eduardo enjoy the city life, whether they are in New York or Buenos Aires, there is always time for a cafe con leche, conversation with friends and discovering new things in an old city. In Buenos Aires going to the flea market on Saturdays and Sundays is just a treat. "All visitors to our place can always tag along" says Greg. Both love to show tourists and guests the non-turistic sites, the unknown places and the gems that old cities inherit through time. Eduardo has the "architect" glasses, so it's always nice to "see and hear" the comments through his lenses. Cities like Buenos Aires are cities to loose weight, one walks all the time and eats little to no carbs at all. It's the perfect diet-city to be! You come as a guest to our home but we assure you, you'll leave as a friend, that is, if you leave at all. Our reviews are true testimony of who we are, what we love doing and what make us happy.
