This is not a tour!
It is an immersion experience.
Sense the city of Buenos Aires by learning some Lunfardo and merging with locals... hop into designer shops of porteños creative minds, taste some of the gourmet Argentine food, fascinate yourself with the current street art scene in Buenos Aires.

This is not a tour!
It is an experience for you to not only meander around to learn about street art in Buenos Aires and see some amazing pieces, but then we go to the proper artist's cave of magic, and there in a short workshop we make ready for making our street art stamp on a public wall of Buenos Aires :)
Are you ready?

Born and bred "porteña" I am a Lawyer and Political Scientist from the prestigeous University of Buenos Aires.
Fortunate to have travelled around the world, I believe every time I become more in love with my country, our traditions, excentricities and people.
I have founded MATE experiences to invite visitors to fall in love with Argentina just like me: through experiences that offer adventure, reality and a superb way to access the best of what we have got: our people.
I believe tourism is an agent for enhancing world peace through breeding empathy... I invite you to hop on this idea ;)
