The tour was great. Neighborhoods and buildings transformed by street art. We went to a suburban area of BA, and walked through a neighborhood where there were breathtaking murals on every block.

I had such a great experience with BA Street Art Tours. They were very professional, but also showed us some very unique and inspiring works in two lesser-known areas of Buenos Aires. It was a great way to see other art, besides the ones you always see walking down main streets in BA and our guide was extremely knowledgeable about... More

Sofia is a passionate street art tour guide. She explains everything incredible and she has a very deep knowledge in all related to street art artists and the city of BA. I highly recommend this tour to everyone! A tour for people who don't like tours! :-)

This was a really enjoyable tour, taking in some lesser known residential parts of the city, that happen to host some great street art. The tour guide's knowledge of the art and the artists behind it was first rate. We got to learn about the history of the city, the political context for the art and the social context for... More

Excellent tour. It may seem ironic that behind the burglar bars of these upmarket neighbourhoods of BA there are people dying for graffitti street art. Many of the works are commissioned by the house owners. In fact on our tour one octogenarian from the neighbourhood was complaining that someone had defaced the paintings done the night before. Interesting and informative... More

Buenos Aries has some amazing street art and this was the tour to go on to learn about the art. Matt and Sophia were both very passionate about street art in BA and supported the local artists. They did a great job explaining the art work, the artists, and showing off the beautiful pieces. There was possibility of rain the... More

This tour was the best $20 I spent on this trip!! Sofia was amazing and was so passionate about the street art in Buenos Aires. I enjoyed spending my afternoon (even though it was scorching), wandering through the more residential parts of the city. The street art is everywhere and thanks to this tour, I understand it a bit better.... More

This is a definite worthwhile tour that gives a flavor of the Buenos Aires culture and an unique art form. Small groups so you don't feel like you are traveling around in a huge tourist pack or being rushed around. Guides very friendly and knowledgable. Great tour!
