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!

Vicky was very friendly, informative and a perfect tour guide for the city of BA. She gave us plenty of opportunities to take pictures and showed us a few secrets of buenos aires. Perfect for any English speaking tourists. It was free however we gave Vicky 150 peso each at the end...well worth it :)

You will enjoy this tour! Jimena was an excellent guide and enjoyed sharing your love and knowledge about Buenos Aires. For the evening tour I was one man crowd due to a rain and she still did the tour even know she didn't have to. That's what I call "Above and beyond". She spoke better English than anyone I cam...

Our guide Victoria was absolutely FANTASTIC taking us around the city and talking about the history and current life in Buenos Aires. Her style is laid back yet informative and very funny. She kept us interested the entire time. Thank you for a great tour!

Did the Retiro/Recoleta tour with Jiména, she was great! Spoke very good English which was very helpful to me as my Spanish isn't excellent. Brought us to many different monuments around Retiro and Recoleta and had great stories and information about them all. Would definitely recommend

I did a city walk with Jimena. I also did a walk with the other free walking tours company and much preferred her style and tour. She was very knowledgeable and personable. Lots of facts and interesting titbits. Helpfully answered other questions about the city and how to do things too. Would definitely recommend.

From the very first moment, Adriana provided me with excellent and professional service, patient and friendly. She was personally the tour guide of the city tour.

Our guide Gonzalo was just what you could wish for! He was engaging, full of knowledge and happy to answer any questions! It starts at the Plaza San Martin and ends at the cemetary about 3 hours later. What a perfect way to see the city!! Oh... It starts at 11 AM. Don't forget to tip the guide as well... 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.
