We completely enjoyed the tour by Matt and learning about his efforts to support and foster street art. He is highly knowledgeable and well spoken. We also learned what life is like for a expat in BA, discussed the current politics, and so forth. We enjoyed getting to see a different, more residential neighborhood in BA as well.

We had done a street art tour in London and jumped at the chance to do one in Buenos Aires. Matt was a very passionate and enthusiastic guide. Our tour lasted over 4 hours. He could sense our appreciation of the art and gave us a grand tour. We saw A LOT of beautiful street art. His company helps to fund street art in Buenos Aires so the money is well spent. We got more than our money's worth. Great way to see another side of Buenos Aires.

Excellent guide and view of local middle class neighborhood in Buenos-Aires and their love for the arts! We even saw graffiti in the works by 3 men from New York. It was very Banksy.

We were lucky enough to book a private tour by car with Matt, the founder of this incredible organization. Matt is gracious, very knowledgable, and well connected in the global street art community. He didn't just show us dozens of works of art; he told us the historical, aesthetic and personal stories behind them. In many cases, he had organized the commissions directly with the artists and city or private residents. I began photographing street art in the Southern Cone in the late 90's as a hobby and it's been 10 years since my last visit. Matt made it a rich and insightful experience tailored to our interests. My family (husband and 6yo son) agreed it was a major highlight of our 2-week trip. Perhaps the best part: Matt surprised us by offering my son a chance to do some spray painting of his own on a wall in a park along the way. Don't miss this opportunity!
