“Street Art Safari”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Matt is a great guide; genuinely enthusiastic he shares a great deal of knowledge about the Latin American street art culture in general and of Buenos Aires in particular. Street Art could use some ambassadors like him. As to the tour, even if you don't like the paint you will enjoy being off the beaten track.

“A great street level way to view street art”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Matt runs a very informative tour. He is a native English speaker with a deep insight into the current street art scene. The tour is well worth the money. You can do an alternative tour for free by zigzagging the streets on San Telmo bounded by Independcia, 9 De Julio, Humberto Primo & Defencia

“Don't miss this tour!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I really enjoyed this tour and was really impressed by Matt's knowledge and insider information. I'd recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in street art. Wear comfy walking shoes - there's so much to see, you don't want to limp :)

“Personable and excellent tour guide.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Matt was a well spoken and personable. He is someone you want to take you on a tour. The street art in BA is fantastic and his in depth explanations really made me think and appreciate the time and effort he has made to put this tour together. Too bad it had to come to an end.
