Owner description: Buenos Aires Free Tours offers two DIFFERENT tours per day. One in the morning and the other one during the afternoon. 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!

This is absolutely a must! You will have the chance to know part of the city and some histories as well, from a local. It was awesome, absolutely recommended. Note: use comfortable footwear.

Victoria's 5pm tour impressed me so much I did the morning tour with Gaston the next day! I would highly recommend them.

This was the best walking tour that I and my wife have taken. Guillermo made the tour outstanding because of his knowledge and energy. He not only explained everything but encouraged discussions. You had to be impressed.

We took both tours on the same day. The guides (Gaston and Maggie) were very informative and spiced up their walks with amusing anecdotes. It gave us a very interesting insight into the history buildings and people of Buenos Aires and Argentina. They really earned their 'tips'!

we did the 11AM BA tour and it was fun, entertaining, informative and relaxed. Vicky (Victoria) was a very clear, funny, enthusiastic and knowledgable guide and I think this is a must for everyone who is interested in BA and the history/daily life/secrets etc.

We went for the morning tour with Maggy. Lots on informations in a decontracted way. She has a good sense of humour and excellent knowledge of BA. 2 days later we went for the 5 PM Recoletta tour and surprise Maggy was doing that tour as well. Keep up the good work

This was our very first 'activity' in BA and it was the right decision. It gave us the context behind Argentina and we saw all the key buildings with great explanation and opportunity to ask any questions. Our guide was also great fun and made it an unforgettable experience. He even pointed us in the direction of a food market... More

This review is long overdue. I took the Walking Tour with Maggie in July upon first arriving in Buenos Aires. She was incredibly energetic and friendly, and very thorough in her attention to detail. I did not know much about Argentinian history prior to this tour and I learned so much after three hours on the evening tour. This free... More
