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! « less

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

We are extremely happy with the tour conducted by our guide Gaston. He took us to various parts of the city and provided interesting historical events that shaped... More

We did both the 11am tour and the evening tour. Maggie was our guide for both. She was very entertaining and very informative. She helped me to understand the culture, portenos, and even gave a few tips on how to blend in. She gave a great history lesson. The tour wasn't strenuous. it was a nice walk around the neighborhood.... More

I went on the tour in the morning with Maggie (Magdalena) and it was fantastic!! She was very entertaining, had wonderful knowledge and was very approachable. It was a great tour (despite the freezing cold day!) and I highly recommend it!

I came across these walking tours via Google. I was in Buenos Aires for a limited time and thought they would be a good idea to take in. I joined both the day and evening tours and was pleasantly surpriesed by them. The tour guides were nice and informative and the group was a decent size without being too large.... More

We did both the morning tour with Vicky and the afternoon tour with Maggie, and they were both excellent guides. The tours were a great introduction to the Centro and Recoleta neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires, and gave us great insight into the city as well as its people. Highly recommended.

Did the morning city tour and it was fantastic. Gaston was very informative and kept things lively and interesting (despite it being a historical tour). He also has a wealth of information when it comes to getting the best coffee, steak, ice cream, etc in town so ask him lots of questions. Had the best time, and made a whole... More
