Details of this Activity

Our walking tour begins at our office in San Telmo.

We will meandre down calle Defensa to the very heart of San Telmo. One of the oldest barrios in Buenos Aires, this lively area is boasts a vibrant tango and artistic scene. The antiques markets, street lanterns (known locally as faroles), cobbled streets, old-fashioned buildings and original décor give the place its unique bohemian atmosphere. Sundays are the busiest days as they see the famous street market come to life in Plaza Dorrego.

Our tour then moves onto the bus which we’ll take down to La Boca neighbourhood, home to the Boca Juniors stadium and vibrant Caminito. Be captivated by the different versions of street tango and learn about how tango, football and other immigrant influences have shaped Buenos Aires into one of the most intricate and entrancing cities in the world.

Coming back dowtown Buenos Aires by bus, we will arrive to the Plaza de Mayo, the main square in Buenos Aires and the political heart of Argentina, we will visit the Catedral Metropolitana and see the Cabildo, Ayuntamiento Colonial and Casa Rosada, the core of governmental power.

Then, we will reach the Obelisco, a monument which is itself a symbol of Buenos Aires. We will be a part of this incredible city, getting a glimpse of what everyday life looks like for an Argentinian and making our way down the widest street in the world: the avenida 9 de julio. Historical buildings, monuments and streets reveal the story of the city and the growth it has experienced over the years.

Enjoy the views on modern Puerto Madero skyscrapers from the bus, which will take us down to the sophisticated area of Recoleta, known for the striking Cementerio de Recoleta. Here we will see incredible architecture, countless museums, chic cafés and restaurants, exclusive streets and shopping centres.

Our tour will come to a close at the Cementerio de la Recoleta, a central area close to many transport links.

Fantastic walking tour in Buenos Aires
We did a one day walking tour through Tangol San Telmo which was perfect introduction to the city. The tour was a mix of walking, subway and public bus. Our guide was lovely, spoke beautiful English and had huge knowledge of Argentinian history and current affairs. As a qualified architect, she was able to provide great information about the buildings and monuments we visited. It was more like wandering the town with an intelligent friend than taking a tour. This tour would be perfect if you only have a short time in the city or as an intro to orient yourself. Couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Staff in the San Telmo Tangol office are also very friendly and extra helpful.
