Itinerary

Ushuaia is known as the city at the End of the world and it holds many interesting stories of natives, missionaries and explorers. It’s located between the Andes mountain range and in front of the well-known Beagle Channel, a natural crossing between the Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean. Discovered by captain Fitz Roy, it’s home to  incredible wildlife including penguins. 

During this virtual tour we will go around the city, visiting the Old Prison which started this city, the Malvinas War memorial and the Ushuaia Sign.  After driving through the Old Mission area, we will take you to different residential neighborhoods to have a look to the typical architecture and to learn how people live in this part of the world. During the drive I will offer you beautiful views of this amazing place, just as if you were here with me!  At the end of the tour we will visit my house where me and my husband will offer you a virtual taste of our Mate tea tradition!!! 

Join me in this virtual tour and let me tell you all about this unique city!

Barbara Avalos

My name is Barbara and I've been working as a Professional tour guide for over 20 years.

Ever since I was a teenager I've wanted to be a tour guide. I love meeting new people and being able to share part of my culture and history.

I studied in Buenos Aires and graduated as a Tour guide in the year 2000.

After doing a Masters degree in Spain I came back to Argentina and decided I didn't want to live in a big city anymore. 

So I prepared my luggage and moved to Ushuaia in 2002.

I soon started working for local companies and after a few years I was hired by Grand Circle Travel, a company based in Boston, to work as a trip leader taking American groups to Antarctica and Patagonia. After 2 years, I stopped traveling to become a mom so I kept working as a freelance local guide in Ushuaia, that means I´ve been a local guide here for 18 years!

Last year, I re started my job as trip leader and I was able to go to Antarctica once again.

As this years has been very difficult for the whole travel industry, I decided to start offering live virtual  tours of my beautiful city, not only as a job but mostly to show Ushuaia and to encourage travelers to visit us one is possible.

    It was wonderful. Our guide Barbara was so personable. Besides seeing the sites of Ushuaia we got to visit at her kitchen table with her and her husband while she explained the drinking of Mate.This was the best Beeyonder trip I have taken to date.

  • Michael G - Adventurer

    Barbara was extraordinary! She really went the extra distance to make tour enjoyable and fascinating for myself and my friends.  It’s the second tour I’ve done with her and look forward to going on another.   I Highly recommend her and her tours!  Mike

    Thank you Barbara (and family) for the great tour of Ushuaia!  The personalized method of showing off your city was very well done!

  • Oren S - Voyager

    Great tour. It is very interesting to learn about the history of places you have never even heard of. I had a few questions and Barbara had all the answers. She is a great host and the mate tea is a nice addition at the end.

  • Clare B - Voyager

    Barbara was an amazing and professional guide with incredible knowledge of the history and culture. We were so honored to be guided by her and to be invited into her home at the end for a matte demonstration. She was worth every penny!
