What To Expect

Plaza de Mayo
Set off on a half-day walking tour with your own private guide, learning all about the history and culture of beautiful Buenos Aires. Your guide will be a real porteño (resident of the city), who knows every barrio like the back of his/her hand.
Together, you'll head off to explore some of the city's historical hotspots, as well as some of the favorite local hangouts of your guides. It's a great mix of experiences thrown into one. Getting an inside glimpse of Buenos Aires, you'll go far beyond the guidebooks and swerve the tourist crowds, allowing you to see a different side of the city.
At times, you'll take public transport to cover the larger distances, while most of the tour will be on foot. After a few hours with your personal guide, the tour will finish at one of his/her favorite restaurants, where you can grab a well-deserved bite to eat (lunch not included). It's a brilliant way to get a peek into the real porteño way of life.
