    The tour was a highlight of our trip to BA. It was off season and we were 2 of 3 on the tour. The guide was knowledgeable about the art and history. I highly recommend this tour.

    My guide was Kat. She really knew great detail of the history of the painted houses, artists and the meaning behind each work of art. Every question was answered. I would really recommend this tour to see the true highlights of the area. As a side note, Kat was more than helpful with getting me back to the city and other tourist information.

    We enjoyed this tour - got to see a lot of artists and understand the origin and history of the graffiti movement in Argentina. Learned about the different styles and the other cultural aspects of Graffiti. Lucresia is very knowledgeable, nice, courteous. Would suggest that she gets a small mic because at times its really hard to hear her given all the noises on the street. Kathleen the apprentice was nervous but did a great job with the small part she spoke about. Her English is great. I would recommend that we spend a bit less time at the beginning with all the history - felt long - maybe weave that in along the way as we see more graffiti. Glad we did this tour.

    Great tour of northern Buenos Aires street art including informed commentary on the genesis and development of street art in BA and opportunities to visit galleries profiling the work of the artists seen on the tour.

    Excellent tour. Really informative and fascinating, and really enhanced our time in Buenos Aires.

    Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and connected to the street art world and gave us an insight into the different aspects of streetart and what it all meant. She was great at describing some of the pieces as well, making you see what the artist wanted to represent. Only disappointing thing was we didn't see a great load of the art. Stopped in at a gallery for way longer then needed in my opinion, i'd much rather have been on the street looking at the art.

    We very much enjoyed the art work on this tour and I doubt if we would have seen any of it if not via this tour. We arrived in Buenos Aires around noon and the afternoon tour fit in perfectly.....just enough to make the day worthwhile, but not too long after a lengthy flight.
