Walking Tour In Buenos Aires

Highlights of Walking Tours

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

Our tour is done on foot and traveling by public transport.

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

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

You will live an experience of unique and real contact with our beloved metropolis exhaustively visiting the Center and its Casco Historical, San Telmo, La Boca and Recoleta.

Throughout the tour you will taste typical foods such as empanadas, have a coffee in the colorful Caminito and, for those who took the option, finish the tour in a spectacular bar and viewpoint overlooking the square Congress and the avenues s colorful sights of the city. 

Ideal walking tour to take photos and explore areas outside the massive tourist circuit of 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.
