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!

We landed in Buenos Aires at 5 in the morning and somehow made to this tour at 11 in the Plaza Del Congreso. Our guide was Maggie. The tour was only partly interesting for us. We expected a lot more historical view of the city. We were also expecting hints at the end for travelers like public transport, food, safe... More

We took the 11am city tour that starts at the Plaza del Congreso. The tour took about 3 hours in total with a short break in front of the pink palace. Victoria was our guide. A group of about 20 showed up for the tour, which worked fine. We could always hear Victoria at the various stopping points. Victoria was... More

I like free tours. The tour was ok but what I was missing is small treats, advices on which restaurants and other places to visit. The guide Magdalena was over dramatic.. I was feeling like she was acting all the time.. I preffer natural behaviour.

We took the 11 am tour with Victoria and had an excellent time! She was a great tour guide and made it obvious that she loved her job and Buenos Aires and it made our time with her that much better! She is very knowledgeable about all the sights we visited and even provided a little insight into living in... More

BA is a unique South American city, one with many bright historical highs and some shocking lows. This 5 pm tour with Vicky introduced us to it all- never getting too in depth (which was a bit of a shame, but with so much to see and learn, it makes sense), we learned the general history of the city from...

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.

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
