Guide had a small speaker which made it easy to hear. He literally talked for 3 hours, and had such great info to share. In-between stops (and at the end), he was happy to answer questions about where to go and what to do. Many thanks!

Our tour of the Recoleta and Retiro neighborhoods with Mariano was great! He was very professional and knowledgable, and did a great job conveying a lot of information to a large group of people while also shepherding us all through the bustling city streets. This is an especially beautiful part of the city, and it was fascinating learning about it from Mariano as we walked. He included a stop halfway through the tour for refreshments and a restroom break, which is always a very welcome feature of a long walking tour. I would definitely recommend this tour to anybody visiting Buenos Aires, especially if, like us, you are visiting for the first time and are staying in the Recoleta.

Cannot recommend this service enough. If you're trying to get your feet wet in the city this is the perfect start; they pair all the major sights with history and cultural perspectives you won't find yourself. The experience lets you determine the price of the tour so the flexibility of pricing paired with the ridiculous amount of information you get on the city and country make this a no-brainer. Look for the orange shirts!

City Center covers Palacio Congreso, Barolo, Casa Rosada, Plaza de Mayo, Obelisco, and more! La Boca covers Caminito, La Bambonera and Boca Jrs, and more!

We did two of their tours — one in Recoleta and the other in City Center — and both were very good. The guides were informative and entertaining, and the tours were the right amount of time and covered a reasonable amount of distance & sights. Despite the large number of tourists on the tours, we could hear the guides OK. And I guess my only complaint is that there were just too many people on the tours. So it required a bit of jockeying around to make sure we were in a position to hear what the guide was saying. Regardless, for a $20 donation (for two people), it was an affordable way to get an introduction to the city.

There are a few tours offered by BA Free Walks which we have joined, and this City Centre is the best because Martin was the guide. He has exceptional passion, knowledge and integrity to tell us more than just a tour. Places we have visited included Palocio Barolo, National Congress, Plaza d Mayo, Government House, July 8th Avenue, etc. He has elaborated each landmark with stories in real life. He would give us tips where to avoid tourist's traps and where locals go to. In particular, he has told an amazing and touching story about the Mothers of May symbol engraved on the ground. That showed his relentless patriotism and hope for the future. Argentina has gone through many rough times, with incredibly high inflation, corruption from government officials, big gap between the rich and the poor, etc. However, regardless of these issues, Argentinians like Martin continue to believe in building and fighting for their rights and a better future, which is very admirable. This is the best free walks ever!

I'm leaving Buenos Aires with a big smile in my face. Having the opportunity to explore the city guided by a warm and knowledgeable guy as Esteban was truly a privilege.

Without his knowledge on history, politics, geography and architecture our visit to Retiro and Recoleta wouldn't have been the same. I'm also really impressed by his ability to handle questions from so many people without losing track haha,

Thank you Esteban, you really made us connect with the city!

We did a congress afternoon tour. This tour is named as the national congress tour and sounded like it was a tour of the government buildings but it was much more than that, very informative and entertaining. Our guide Martin, gave so much information about Eva Perón, politics, interesting economics, art, history of the buildings and their architects in such a short time he was more like a teacher of history and art then a tourist guide. Highly recommend touring the city with his narration of Buenos Aires and understand more of this beautiful city and people. Martin was a very good and very friendly tour guide.

My partner and I did the Free Walking Tour around the city center of Buenos Aires. Vicky was a great tour guide, she spoke English super clearly and was very knowledgable about the history of the city, which helped contextualize the stories she told and the buildings we saw. She had a zillion recommendations of things to do/places to go after the tour as well - would definitely recommend, especially on the first day of your trip.

Taking a walking tour of the Recoleta and Retiro neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires with Victoria was an absolute delight! She was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the city, providing us with interesting facts and anecdotes as we explored the streets and parks.

Victoria was incredibly attentive to each guest, taking time to answer all questions and make sure that everyone was comfortable. Her enthusiasm for Buenos Aires was contagious, and her storytelling kept us enthralled throughout the tour.

I highly recommend taking this tour. It's the perfect way to get a taste of Argentine culture and history. An experience that is not to be missed!

Excellent walking tour, Santi was extremely knowledgeable about the city and very friendly. He went out of his way to ensure the large group kept together, could hear him clearly and had an opportunity to ask questions. Can highly recommend taking this tour, is a great way to get a feel for the city.
