Well, in summary: - the artworks selected were nice and in a part of town you wouldn't discover otherwise. - most of the times, though, the tour lacked depth and social perspective. - we were herded from wall to wall, only to hear that the guide "was not sure exactly what the piece meant, but he thought it related to"......

This is a must during a Buenos Aires trip, people. You will walk through neighborhoods you never would have known otherwise; you will see a form of art that is unfortunately not very common in the United States; you will feel like you can grasp just a bit of this big, beautiful city. I highly recommend this tour.

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

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
