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!

Did the morning your with Gaston and the afternoon tour with Maggie. They were both wonderful hosts of the city, very knowledgeable about the sights and the history. This was a great way to get acquainted with Buenos Aires.

Did both morning tour (11:30 at Parliament) with Maggie and afternoon (5pm at San Martin Park with Vicky) and they were both great! Interesting and funny guides with lots of information, which is very helpful in a huge city like Buenos Aires where it is hard to know where to start! Would highly recommend! Make sure you are getting the... More

We did both the morning (with Vicky) and the afternoon tour( with Maggy), both were interesting and fun. They incorporated historical elements with cultural particularities: such as ordering coffee without speaking. Buenos Aires is a huge city and 3 hours is a short time to cover everything in details. These tours give a good overview. More details about our trip... More

I'm a bit surprised by the overwhelmingly gushing reviews. We left half way through. Maybe it improved and they saved the best till last. I wasn't willing to risk another hour to find out. We went on the morning tour with Maggie / Magdalena. She was very sweet, enthusiastic and clearly very passionate about BA. Ultimately the content was lacking... More

A fantastic 2 hour walking tour which is fun and packed full of local information. We did the morning city tour with Magdalena who made the city come to life through her passion and knowledge of the city. Suits all budgets. Very highly recommended.

We did two tours with Magi on one day - just because we couldn't get enough. Magi was outgoing, friendly, motivated and made the tour really personal. We did the city tour in the morning and the aristocratic tour in the afternoon. We visited nice spots, learned a lot about Argentina and its people and history. It was a great... More

Although the tour started 15 minutes late (on time for Argentina) it was an excellent, informative tour. The guide combined history and humor which made the 3 1/2 hour tour go quickly. There is no charge for the tour but a tip is given at end of the tour (US dollars preferred)

We took both tours that are offered and had Magdalena as our guide both times (she remembered our names from the day previous!!). We considered ourselves very fortunate as she has so much passion for her city. Each tour focuses on a different aspect of the city and, if you have time, both open your eyes to a beautiful city....
