Details of Day Tours

The walking tour begins at our office in the San Telmo neighborhood. This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires and has a vibrant tango and arts scene. Its antique markets, street lighting (known as "lanterns"), cobblestones, ancient buildings and decoration Original, they add to the unique bohemian atmosphere of the place. Sundays are the busiest days as the street market comes to life around Plaza Dorrego. 

Once the excursion begins, we will enter the San Telmo market, a building inaugurated in 1897 to supply the large wave of immigrants who arrived at that time. Today, you can still find some stores selling meat, vegetables and other groceries, although most of the stores offer local cuisine and specialties from around the world. Here we will taste some delicious empanadas.

We will continue our way along Defensa Street , in the heart of the San Telmo neighborhood, until we reach Plaza Dorrego and, after observing the various stalls selling crafts, we will take a bus to reach the La Boca, known for the stadium of the Boca Juniors team and the colorful Caminito street. We will be enchanted by the dancing and singing performances of street tango and we will learn how tango, soccer and different immigration influences have made Buenos Aires one of the most irresistible cities in the world. Here we will take a break while we enjoy a coffee and a snack.

On board another bus we will enjoy the views of the modern skyscrapers of Puerto Madero until you 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, symbol of Buenos Aires, going through the real experience of the daily life of an Argentine citizen and walking along the lively Avenida 9 de Julio, the widest avenue in the world. Historical buildings, monuments and streets will show the changes that the city has undergone since its founding.

On board the subway, We will arrive at the Recoleta neighborhood where we will find beautiful architecture, a large number of museums, elegant cafes and restaurants, exclusive avenues and shopping centers. 

We will tour the impressive Recoleta Cemetery, the resting place of a large part of the country`s aristocratic families and recognized figures in history such as Eva Duarte Perón. Here we will end the tour, having the rest of the afternoon to walk and explore on your own.

Denise was outstanding! It was good to have her all to ourselves. She was very sensitive and set a perfect pace. This very important for my husband who walks with a stick. We were given some very interesting information about the history of Argentina in addition to what life is like living here. I would thoroughly recommend this activity.

It would be helpful to note in the description of the tour that this is not a private tour and the tour does not allow time for taking multiple selfies, shopping along the way and so on. WE were a group of 5 persons and we had to wait for a couple who stopped to shop 2 times, took selfies multiple times and the rest of us had to wait. The guide let them know that we had to get to the Recoleta cemetery by 1700hrs and that we had many things to see before that but this appeared to fall on deaf ears. In fact, they told me the tour should start earlier to accommodate for shopping and so on.

En lo que respecta a la atencion prestada por el personal de tangol no tengo ningun reparo, por el contrario destaco la oportunidad de sus servicios y la buena disposicion asi como de la orientacion permanente. De mi ultimo destino en ushuaia bueno quedo pendiente una noche que no utilice por el tema de los vuelos suspendidos, no se si eso tenga alguna devolucion o se pierda.

Fantastic walking tour in Buenos Aires Reviews

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.

The guide was informative, but very careless and did not warn me about pickpockets in San Telmo Market. I was robbed of my camera with all of my photos of Argentina, this being the last day of my holiday. After I was robbed she then suggested that she looked after my video camera in her locked bag......why she didn't do this befoe entering the Market is unforgiveable.
