Buenos Aires Free Tour offers two DIFFERENT tours per day. One in the morning and the other one during the afternoon. Local guides show you the city that never sleeps, with their stories and secrets. We also offer private tours which is a great way to see the city if you have limited time and are unable to join their regular group. For the free Buenos Aires tours you have to show up at the meeting points, no booking required: -11 AM PLAZA DEL CONGRESO (Rivadavia Ave and Rodriguez Pena St) -3.30 PM at PLAZA SAN MARTIN (Santa Fe Ave and Maipu St, beside the horse monument). Both tours are different!

We went on both tours a couple of days apart. Our guides were fun and full of info. We had a great time on each trip and after each one our guide was able to recommend a great place to eat nearby.

this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
