Know More about this tour

We find that Buenos Aires is best explored on foot and by hopping on and off its unique public transport. There's so much going on in the street that you get a real feel for the life of the city just by walking around. During the tour you'll experience it accompanied by your private local guide. He/she will meet you at your hotel in the morning and you'll head off to La Boca to see this classic Italian neighborhood. It also houses the famous Soccer Stadium where the legendary Diego Maradona started his career. From there you'll go to San Telmo, home to the working class and a place where Porteos (inhabitants of Buenos Aires) gather to dine and dance. Then you wander down to Plaza de Mayo, the main square with its pink government building where Evita once stood on the balcony. It was here that the May Square Mohters demonstrated for years, demanding the government an explanation of what happened to their lost sons during the Videla dictatorial regime (1976-1983). Then you hop on the subte (metro) to Recoleta, with the stately old homes of the wealthy. This is the neighborhood where charismatic Queen Maxima of The Netherlands grew up. And it is also the location of the famous Recoleta Cementary, with the grave of Evita Peron. Then you bus to fancy Palermo with its many French influences, including great restaurants. Along the way your guide will show you tucked away secrets of each area, be it a backstreet cafe, some interesting architecture or a specialist shop. They'll plan the route depending on your interests and will seize the moment with suggestions on where to grab a tasty Argentine wine or the best ice cream, depending on what takes your fancy.

  • What a nightmare !! Would never book anything with this company again beware. Never got to do the tour. Our plane was delayed so couldn't make the booking spent hours trying contact them to let them know impossible to contact and once contacted. Not willing to dicuss problem said we needed to pay again if we wanted to rebook. Tried contacting viator to pass on messages and everthing absolute nightmare so please be careful booking a tour with them. You can't contact them by email. Very sad as this was our first experience with people in Argentina lucky we meet some good people doing the city on our own.

  • While I have been on a private tour of Buenos Aires before I thoroughly enjoyed this walking and sometimes hop on a bus tour. Whereas my previous tour focused primarily on the historical aspects of Buenos Aires, this tour includes many of the social and contemporary cultural aspects of life in Buenos Aires. Our fabulous guide Gisela Reynoso took us to key social spots such as La Biela in Recoleta for coffee and Filiberto Cafe Bar in La Boca for lunch. Be prepared to walk though as we covered 5 miles over the course of 6 hours did we get some bonus time, thanks!. Despite the distance it never felt rushed and the pace was quite relaxed. Highly recommended.

  • Max was a brilliant guide and was able to answer all our questions about Buenos Aires. He made an effort to take us places we had not already seen and didn't bother with places we had been to already, which was great. Cannot speak highly enough of him,
