Our tours will show you the biggest murals in neighborhoods that aren’t in the tourist guidebooks. See huge murals by international street artists like Blu, Fintan Magee, Martin Ron and Alfredo Segatori. Having organized more than 100 murals around the city, BA Street Art takes an active role in the community and supporting the local graffiti and street art scene.

Our expert tour guides hope to offer you an unforgettable experience discovering new parts of the city, learning about the artists, the stories behind their artworks, explaining how murals are used to combat vandalism, the connection between public art, politics and history, and different techniques of painting. For fans of photography it's also a great chance to document some of the best street art in the world.

If I could do any tour again in Buenos Aires again it'd be this one! Grizzly old rainy day but it certainly didn't put a dampner on our afternoon. Met at a traditional style cafe so make sure you go a bit earlier and have some lunch before the tour. Matt was great and very passionate about the street art... More

Matt was extremely friendly & knowledgeable and works in partnership with a lot of the local artists and therefore was able to explain the artists motivation for each murals we saw. At the end he even extended the tour to show us some extra stuff as we were a small group. Would highly recommend the tour!

I was very pleased with how knowledgable the tour guide was about street art, in general, and Buenos Aires street art, specifically. The tour varied in the size of pieces viewed which made for an more interesting tour, especially if you plan on photographing the pieces. Also, I'm disabled, so I was particularly pleased with how accommodating Matt was to... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
