Take the city’s top rated walking tour of Buenos Aires!
Better than a free tour! Pay What You Want to be expertly guided around the city on foot, by public bus and subway, unlocking the secrets of getting around like a local for the rest of your stay. Starting near Plaza de Mayo in the city center, our friendly U.S. and U.K. guides will cover the key points in Argentine history, and some cool lesser-known local stories along the way.
You’ll begin with the President’s pink offices, the Cathedral & Parisian-style Avenida de Mayo, and finish right by the landmark Obelisk monument, the “widest avenue in the world” (Av. 9 de Julio), and the stunning Colon Theater – you’ll take in many of the major sights. In-between you’ll catch a bus to off-the-beaten-track Abasto, a unique area full of tango history and street art, and a subway ride to our final flourish, where you’ll get insider tips on what to see/do/eat in the area after the tour.
