Comodoro Rivadavia invites residents and visitors to participate in the program "Tourists for a Day" which aims to assess the main attractions and city tours to learn about the history of the city and its main economic sources that are oil and port.

This program was first performed during the 2006-2007 season with great success with the participation of over 2000 people throughout the season. It was originally designed for the segment of older adults in the city, but the impact was so great that they decided to adapt the proposal for the community.
