Don't miss the opportunity to visit Palacio Barolo Rooftop with this Walking Tours in Buenos Aires, the best way to get to know the city 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 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 foods such as empanadas and other inherited (and improved) such as ice cream, 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.
