    Visiting Buenos Aires really helped me get settled in the land that I have never set my foot before. Coming to South American continent for the first time in my life, I was excited but scared at the same time. However, even before I left my hometown for Argentina, Visiting Buenos Aires offered a ride for me from the airport to my accommodation. My parents were actually worried about my arrival but after this friendly e-mail from Visiting Buenos Aires, my parents were relieved and I no longer feared the new world. The accommodations that they provide to the students are all beyond what you would expect from the most of South American countries. The families are all open to any background you might be from and they are all willing to provide you with the most comfortable housing as possible. They are not business-oriented which really benefits us, students, to share cultures with true Argentineans. To make things short, you will not feel alone in the strange country with Visiting Buenos Aires and Visiting Buenos Aires will transform you into real Porteño upon your departure!

    Choosing “Visiting Buenos Aires (VBA)” was one of the best decisions I ever made in my 6 months studying abroad in Buenos Aires. Coming to a huge city, all by myself, I have never felt so lonely before in my life. VBA was very welcoming and warm when I came to BA. They made me feel comfortable almost immediately. Being known to ask too many questions, I had no one to ask but VBA, and they took the time, patience, and energy to explain everything to me. They never made me feel like I was being a burden. They literally walked the blocks around my apartment and showed me where everything I needed was. They helped me buy the first few things to get me started. They helped me get a cell phone working immediately. They were simply amazing. Throughout my 6 months in Argentina, whenever I had a question about anything, I would immediately text VBA and I would get an immediate and detailed response. They were the family that I didn’t have in Argentina. They go over and beyond one’s expectations and take the word “hospitality” to a whole new level. I HIGHLY recommend you choose “Visiting Buenos Aires”. Nowhere else will you find such a nice and welcoming group of people willing to help you transition into their country so quickly. I was able to explore Argentina because I knew there was someone close by looking out for me. I owe my amazing experience and my love for Argentina to VBA.

    My experience with ‘Visiting Buenos Aires’ was extremely positive. Right from the start, the team at ‘Visiting’ were helpful; searching for a host family that would best suit me as a person which enabled me to feel more comfortable once I arrived in Buenos Aires and also to improve my language skills. Living for a year in a foreign country is a unique opportunity but can at times be challenging, especially at the beginning, yet throughout my stay in Argentina , ‘Visiting’ were always on hand to support me and offer any practical advice I needed. It was very useful to have help and information from ‘insiders’ which made my Argentine experience a better one. I cannot thank ‘Visiting’ enough for their guidance and friendship!

    "I spent two months this past summer living in Buenos Aires. Through Visiting Buenos Aires I was able to rent a beautiful apartment in Recoleta, one of the loveliest neighborhoods in the city. The apartment was brand new and beautifully furnished, including internet, television, and a kitchen with anything you could possibly need to cook with. However, the best part of Visiting Buenos Aires is that it is a family business, run by a couple born and raised in Buenos Aires, who know the city very well and are very well-organized and reliable. Moreover, they were very kind in helping me with all of the details of my trip, from securing a cell phone to figuring out where to buy groceries, and even helping me out when I got sick and had to go to the hospital briefly. As a woman traveling alone, I felt much more secure knowing that I had such contacts in the city".
