Local guides show you the city that never sleeps, with their stories and secrets. They now also offer private tours which is a great way to see the city if you have limited time and are unable to join their regular group. For the free Buenos Aires tours you have to show up at the meeting points: -11 AM PLAZA DEL CONGRESO (Rivadavia Ave and Rodriguez Pena St) -5 PM at PLAZA SAN MARTIN (Santa Fe Ave and Maipu St, beside the horse monument). Both tours are different! « less

This free tour was great! Unfortunately, we had picked a day in the Easter week and there were round about 50 people. As it's free and everyone can join, it's needless to say that we all came along ;-) It was a little bit too crowded for my taste and Gaston (the guide) had to scream to reach out to... More

I've taken paid tours before and this is just as good as any of them. The guide (Gaston) was knowledgeable, pleasant and funny. The guides work for tips so it's not actually free (assuming you're the decent person type) but overall it's totally worth the money. I had a great time and got some good intel on the city.

We did this tour with my fiancé one morning as we wanted a quick overview of this part of the city and it was great. Our tour guide Gaston had a lot of knowledge and could answer all our questions, he also gave us great tips of where to go etc which helped us on our other days. Unfortunately we... More

We took the evening tour with Gaston, and I have noting less than good things to say.. He is extremely knowledgeable, with very good english speaking skills. It was a fantastic tour; and I would recommend everyone take it on the first or second day of your visit to BsAs. It is a great way to see the city and... More

Went on both of the tours. Both were very interesting and highly recommendable. Both guides, Gaston and Maggy were very interesting. Due to the fact in the afternoon, Aristocratic tour, the group was smaller, we were able to ask lots of questions which Maggy responded very well. The tours are free but if you were happy with the tour and... More

I've been on both the morning (BA the city) tour and the evening (aristocratic BA) tour and both are well worth your time. You don't need to reserve ahead of time and you don't need to pay a dime (or peso) to go on the tour so just show up at the meeting point (on their website) on time and... More

Loved getting little stories about the buildings. Gaston was energetic and friendly, taught us some funny sign language and gave good recommendations for further activities. A great was to get to know the city.

I did the morning city tour. Vicky was a fantastic guide who spoke loud and clear, and was very captivating. This was not just a tour about the history of the city but also the culture of the porteñoos (people from Buenos Aires). There were lots of picture opportunities. I would recommend doing this tour on your first day in... More
