Cultura Cercana (culture from within or close culture) was born with the idea and the intention to show the other face of our culture to people visiting Argentina. After ten years, we now focus on the entire southern region of the continent, offering a wide range of activities in many locations around Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay.

We already have a fixed team of valuable people from different cities, towns, and ports, and we are constantly working as a team to make the best customized experiences for our guests, who trust us in many different locations during their trip.

For any visitor, it is easy to travel to a city, but you do not always get the chance to live and experience it from the inside just like another local. This is the distinctive value that we add to our trips: You get to live, to discover, and to have fun just like another local.



Because we are an alternative to conventional tourism, always seeking to provide top-quality service in local ambiences. In order to achieve maximum professionalism, we are a  T&T Co. – Travel & Tourism Company – authorized by the Secretary of Tourism of Argentina. We also have licensed guides and vehicles in Uruguay and Chile.

We believe that city guides for foreign individual travelers are a good option to get know the main places the city offers and to get excellent recommendations about places and about some programs. Nevertheless, what guides frequently lack is the most authentic thing that a place may have within a short stay: its valuable people. It is through its people that we actually get to know the place. Guides with an elevated cultural level, who are well prepared, specialized in their area, and open-minded are indispensable for us.

We are sure that the best services are those carried out by their owners, and for that reason, we offer diverse activities, each and every one performed in a personalized manner for closed groups of any size. In this way, it is possible to create a warmer atmosphere and a special bond between passengers and us.

We want visitors to become involved with our culture. Because of this, our service is to meet with native people in certain places, at certain moments, and performing certain activities. However, there is no previously prepared speech or anything of the kind: The magic and the exchange of knowledge spontaneously arise. Each person who makes up the Cultura Cercana team is himself/herself the entire time.

We are at your disposal after your tour to email you any recommendations you wish about places and local activities we, the locals, love.
