The segments of the walking tour of the city of Buenos Aires include:

  • 10:00 Meeting with the private guide for the walking city tour of Buenos Aires. During the tour I will narrate everything about Argentine history, Argentine culture and daily life. The first stop is the Plaza de Mayo in the historic center. Old Spanish City Hall (Cabildo), Galería Güemes (The litle prince), the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Banco de la Nación, the Pink House, the May Pyramid, the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, the Jesuits, the Church of San Ignacio, the oldest shops: De Ávila Bookstore, La Estrella pharmacy, decorated with walnut boiserie, Carrara marble and Murano glass.
  • At 11:00 the changing of the guard in the Metropolitan Cathedral takes place, this is where General José de San Martín, the national hero of Argentina, Chile and Peru has his grave, he is known as the Liberator of Argentina, Chile and Peru. Roverano Gallery. Old Italian coffee shop Fernet Branca. We get to the first metro line in Latin America (from 1913) to travel a station and visit the Café Tortoni, one of the most elegant in Buenos Aires.
  • We leave for La Boca. Walking tour through La Boca. El Caminito street, where the dance of tango was born. The immigrants. Boca Juniors Stadium Lunch break does not have to be at an elegant restaurant or a special lunch. You can choose a very cheap, normal, elegant or extra-exclusive restaurant in Puerto Madero. I usually recommend having a choripán lunch on a typical grill in the same way that Boca Juniors fans do, near the Boca stadium and a little away from tourists.
  • We leave for Núñez. On the way we will pass by the Plaza de los dos Congresos. Then we will arrive at the Memorial Park (Disappeared during dictatorship), River Plate Stadium, Chinatown. Then we leave for Palermo, we will pass by the Hippodrome and visit the Garden of Roses (Rosedal).  Optional visit to Japanese Garden / Graffiti.
  • We leave for Recoleta. One of the most important Masonic cemeteries in the world. Tomb of Evita Perón. We will discover the oldest, the newest, the most expensive, the strangest tomb. On the way to San Telmo, we will make a stop at the El Ateneo Bookstore, regarded among the most beautiful in the world.
  • The tour continues in San Telmo. Formerly the neighborhood of wealthy Argentines, after the plague of yellow fever was rented by poor unemployed Italian / European immigrants who came seeking jobs in America. National historical museum. Russian church. House of the Ezeiza family. Lot of French (The patriot). Goldsmith Juan Carlos Pallarols. San Telmo Market. Minimal house (Narrowest house). House of Mafalda.
  • We leave for Puerto Madero, the newest neighborhood in the city. “Puente de la Mujer” by Spanish architect Calatrava (torso in Malmö, Sweden; Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin). Natural reserve. Transfer to the hotel. End of services.

  1. Diggy, Diegooooo, you are so good at what you do! Keep it up and WATCH OUT!

  2. Diego was a fantastic guide. Always helpful, professional. Attentive to our needs. The walking tour is well thought out and touches all the main tourist attractions. I recommend ArG Tour to everyone.

  3. Very happy to have met Diego, a nice and very helpful prepared guy! From Italy I have planned various activities from the transfer upon arrival (very convenient to have a person waiting for you after several hours of flight) to the city tour (visiting all the salient places of the city in one day with explanations and not missing out on the details ) to the wine tasting and tango evening (not to be missed) to the trip on the Tigre! Very useful phone sim card! Thanks Diego!!!

  4. We have felt very comfortable with Diego, in fact due to a flight delay we’ve had another half day in Buenos Aires not initially budgeted for and we called him again. On both occasions precise, organized, available. An excellent option, we highly recommend him.

  5. I went on a trip alone and wanted to visit Argentina, Iguazu Falls and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. In particular, the guide Diego Núñez from ArG Tour in Argentina was incredibly helpful and I had some incredibly nice days in Buenos Aires. Was very pleasantly surprised when he spoke Swedish and was learning Norwegian. It made everything much easier, especially for me who was traveling alone. He arranged for me to get a trip to Uruguay as well, which was in addition to everything else I got to experience. Iguazu Falls from both the Argentine and Brazilian sides was an incredibly wonderful experience. Very happy with the trip and Latin Reiser and many thanks to Diego who made the trip extra special. He also followed me up on the phone after I left Argentina to make sure I had arrived safely at Iguazu and Copacobana. Can really recommend traveling with them!

  6. Diego was a great guide. we had a really fun time .I recommend him highly.

  7. Diego was beyond helpful for my friends and I. My friends left the evening before admist the celebrations of Argentina winning football. I left in the morning. He was early by a few minutes, polite, helpful, speaks English very well and explained areas we were driving through. Highly recommend Diego for a private driver to or from the airport and even for his tours! Thanks again Diego for all your help!
