Our Buenos Aires Walking Tour is the best way to get to know the city! Our tour is conducted on foot, as well as in public transport: the Metro and Bus.
We go in small groups of a maximum of 12 people in order to ensure a unique and personal tour. We aim to take you to the most striking and interesting parts of the city in the most eco-friendly way possible, all the while showing you the true Buenos Aires of a Porteño.
Walking through all the top locations, from the centre through San Telmo, La Boca and even Recoleta, and finishing the tour with a spectacular visit to the Palacio Barolo is a unique experience we want to share with you. You’ll learn the story of this striking building as well as explore its allegories to the Divine, and end our tour with the best 360° view in Buenos Aires from the top of the old lighthouse in the palace dome.
Comprehensive, unique and even spectacular, this is a tour you don’t want to miss!

Our walking tour starts at our office in San Telmo. We will take Defensa St. to the very heart of San Telmo. One of the oldest barrios in Buenos Aires, this lively area 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 the famous street market come to life in Plaza Dorrego.
Our tour then moves south to La Boca neighbourhood, home to the Boca Juniors stadium and the vibrant "Caminito" street. Get enchanted by the tango's dancing and singing and learn how tango, football and different immigration influences have made Buenos Aires one of the most irresistible cities in the world.
We will take in the views of the modern skyscrapers at Puerto Madero and the Puente de la Mujer from the bus, which we will take down to the sophisticated area of Recoleta.
We will cross the bridge towards Plaza de Mayo, Buenos Aires main square and the political heartland of Argentina, visit the Metropolitan Cathedral and observe the Cabildo (the Colonial Town Hall) and Casa Rosada, the Pink Presidential Headquarters Office.
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 9 de julio Av. Historical buildings, monuments and streets reveal the story and growth the city has experienced over the years.
We’ll spend about 15 minutes exploring the famous cemetery, after which we’ll hop on the bus for a short ride to the Palacio Barolo.
At 4pm we will meet with our guide in the entrance hall of the palace. Our tour of the palace will begin in the ‘9 circles of hell’, continue on to ‘purgatory’ and then lead us into ‘paradise’, all the while our professional guides tell the story of the palace and explain the significance of the divine symbols throughout. 6 floors up, we can look out from the best 360° view in Buenos Aires: the top of the old lighthouse in the palace dome. The views from here are utterly unforgettable. After this Dantesque experience, the palace takes us back in time to explore a 1920’s office. Our tour comes to a close at the entrance of the palace after 90 minutes inside.
