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!

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....

We took the daytime tour with Victoria and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. She spoke clearly and loud enough for the entire group to hear, all the time engaging the individuals taking tour. She was patient with questions and time for photographs and really knew her city. We highly recommend this tour. There is no charge for the tour but she... More

Had a wonderful city tour with Adriana--four hours of walking our legs off but a great intro to the city. She is extremely knowledgeable--especially in regards to the history of the city and country. She tailored her tour to our interests and we would highly recommend her for your introduction to Buenos Aires

We had Magdalena for both tours. We loved her energy and love for her city that we decided to do the morning tour with her as well. (We werent the only ones who turned up to both). The afternoon tour is great if you love architecture. You look at all the amazing palaces and how society used to live. The... More

Our walking tour was one of the best free tours we've ever taken. Fernando did an incredible job with history, architecture, and humor to engage the group and teach us plenty about BA. He is clearly proud of his country's history and did a wonderful job sharing. Thanks for a fun day!

The tour is made in English and the guides are all funny and relaxed. You van learn a lot about Buenos Aires culture and history. I really liked it even though it was my second time at the city.
