Walking Tour In Buenos Aires

Highlights of Walking Tour

The Walking Tour of Buenos Aires is the best way to get to know the city.

Our tour is done walking and traveling by public transportation.

The idea is to get to know, in a sustainable way and without losing sight of the daily reality of the porteños, the most beautiful and interesting corners of the city.

We go out with small groups, with a maximum of 8 people, prioritizing the quality of the excursion.

You will experience a unique and real contact experience with our beloved metropolis, visiting the Downtown and its Historical Center, San Telmo, La Boca and Recoleta.

Throughout the tour you will taste typical local food such as empanadas and take a cup of coffee at the colorful Caminito, ending the tour in a spectacular bar and viewpoint overlooking the Plaza Congreso and the most colorful avenues of the city. 

This walking tour is ideal to take pictures and visit areas outside the massive tourist circuit of Buenos Aires.

Details of Day Tours

The walking tour starts at our San Telmo office. This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires and boasts a vibrant tango and arts scene. Its antique markets, street lighting (known as "faroles"), cobblestones, old buildings and original decor add to the unique bohemian atmosphere of the place. Sundays are the busiest days as the street market comes to life around Plaza Dorrego.

We will visit the San Telmo market, a building inaugurated in 1897 to supply the great wave of immigrants that arrived at that time. 
Nowadays, you can still find some shops selling meat, vegetables and other groceries, although most of them offer local gastronomy and specialties from all over the world. Here we will taste some delicious empanadas.
We will continue our way along Defensa Street, in the heart of San Telmo neighborhood, until we reach the park. 

We will take a bus to La Boca neighborhood, known for the Boca Juniors stadium and the colorful Caminito street. We will be enchanted by street tango dancing and singing performances and learn how tango, soccer and different immigration influences have made Buenos Aires one of the most irresistible cities in the world.

On board another bus we will enjoy the views of the modern skyscrapers of Puerto Madero until we reach the Plaza de Mayo, the main square of Buenos Aires and the political heart of Argentina. We will visit the Metropolitan Cathedral and observe the Cabildo, the colonial City Hall, and the Casa Rosada, the seat of the executive power.  

After touring the square, we will go to the Obelisk, a symbol of Buenos Aires. Be a part of this incredible metropolis, going through the real experience of the daily life of an Argentine citizen and walk along the lively 9 de Julio avenue, the widest avenue in the world. Historical buildings, monuments and streets will show the changes that the city has undergone since its foundation.

We will arrive at the Recoleta neighborhood by subway where we will find beautiful architecture, a large number of museums, elegant cafes and restaurants, exclusive avenues and shopping malls. 
We will visit the impressive Recoleta Cemetery, resting place of most of the aristocratic families of the country and of well-known historical figures such as Eva Duarte Perón. 

OPTIONAL: After touring the cemetery, we will take a bus to Montserrat neighborhood and visit the Barolo Palace, inaugurated in 1923 and declared a National Historic Monument. Its architecture has a rigorous symbolism and includes numerous analogies and references to the Divine Comedy, by the poet Dante Alighieri.

The tour ends with a visit to a beautiful viewpoint at the top of the Barolo Palace, where we will be able to observe from above the Plaza Congreso, Avenida de Mayo and its surroundings. Here we can relax at the bar located on the rooftop, having a drink and enjoying a snack.

This tour gave us a great sample of the various parts of the city. Anna was our guide and her English was very good and her knowledge of the area was excellent.

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.
