Our tours will show you the biggest murals in neighborhoods that aren’t in the tourist guidebooks. See huge murals by international street artists like Blu, Fintan Magee, Alice Pasquini, Martin Ron and Alfredo Segatori. Having organized more than 100 murals around the city, BA Street Art takes an active role in the community and supporting the local graffiti and street art scene.

Our expert tour guides hope to offer you an unforgettable experience discovering new parts of the city, learning about the artists, the stories behind their artworks, explaining how murals are used to combat vandalism, the connection between public art, politics and history, and different techniques of painting.

We took a short cab ride from our hotel in Palermo to the meeting point, which was a cafe a little off the tourist trail, and it enabled us to see another side of the city, which was great. We had...

We were surprised how much and fast a person can talk but Lucia seemed like an infinite well of information that she wanted to share with us. We really got into the mood when she explained all the different types and styles of street art and shared stories that show she's clearly involved in the scene. In the end we... More

Buenos Aires is like no other city in the world in its love of street art. The people seem as passionate about it as they are about the tango. Almost any walk where there are buildings will connect you with street art, and the messages conveyed are varied and highly distinct. BA Street Art Tour unravels the styles, messages and... More

We were looking for something to do in Buenos Aires besides the museums and cemetary. We saw this tour online and thought it would be a cool way to explore an "off the beaten path" neighborhood and it did not disappoint. Matt was a fantastic guide and very knowledgeable about the amazing murals and graffiti that is around the city.... More

I had a cracking afternoon spent admiring the numerous murals in Villa Urquiza. Thanks to a very knowledgeable guide, I was talked through the motivations behind all these incredibly impressive murals/graffiti. Highly recommend it for anyone even if art is not of interest normally. Top marks x

We did a few tours in the BA and this was by far the most interesting and fun. The ever-changing world of street art in BA comes alive with a great tour.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
