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!

We did the 11am tour on our first day in BA. It was a great introduction to the city and really helped us get our bearings. Victoria was entertaining and knowledgeable.

My husband and I came across this by chance and are so pleased we did. Chris, our guide, was both really knowledgeable and had a great personality. When we turndup it turned out it was only the two of us that day - which meant we really got the most out of it. Although Chris had only lived in BA... More

You can tell the people they have working for this company really enjoy what they are doing. The tour lasted approximately 2 hours and they gave a great in depth discussion about the history, stories and myths about the various locations and buildings. They answered everyone's questions and were overall incredibly enthusiastic and friendly. I went to both the morning... More

My hostel offered some free walking tours. I did 5 of them. They are excellent. Lasts about 2 hours and you can do the second 2 hours for a small fee which I did as well. The guys are great and very knowledgeable. You can tell they enjoy their work from the passion they display. Most of the people I... More

I did the 5pm tour at Plaza San Martin. It was a great way to meet other people visiting the city (one of the other tourists and I knew someone in common, small world!) and to get more history. Our guide was very entertaining and did a great job telling stories about the sites we walked past. It did get... More

We covered a lot during this tour and it was a great way to see some wonderful buildings and learn about the history of the city Martin was a very interesting guide and although the tour was quite long it was paced well enough for us to keep up. It was well worth taking. We asked Martin to recommend a... More

We enjoyed our visit to Buenos Aires and our walking tour of La Recoleta. The guide (we didn't catch his name but it wasn't Martin or Fernando, who are often mentioned by others) was knowledgeable and shared interesting personal insights and experiences. Unfortunately, he tends to speak quickly and with a fairly strong accent, so some of the people in... More

What is better than free and the word tour? We always google the words "free tour" when we are in a city. So many wonderful people love to share their city with tourists and this was no exception. We took the 10:30 tour. It was offered in both Spanish and English. The Spanish group went separately. The tour is long... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
