Interesting Plaza Dorrego is the site of the famous San Telmo Antiques Market and a place with many interesting cafes and antique stores.

Learn about life in Buenos Aires, both past and present, during this in-depth walking tour with an informative guide. Spend ample time on the streets of Argentina's bustling capital, listening to your guide's commentary about the architecture, traditions, and local history that many visitors miss out on.

Visit the historic downtown and Plaza de Mayo, including stops at Casa Rosada, the Cabildo (Town Hall), the Cathedral, and Puerto Madero. Trek on toward San Telmo, the oldest neighborhood in Buenos Aires and home to many colonial-style houses and churches. Follow your guide on foot to San Telmo's famous Dorrego Square and its antiques market to learn about the dark history of the open-air Slave Market.

Cover the area around Plaza San Martin Park, which gave Buenos Aires its 'Paris of the South' reputation. Your guide leads you through Palermo, Buenos Aires' largest and most populous neighborhood, to get a taste of everyday life in this vibrant city. You'll also pass through tiny Recoleta toward its heart, the Recoleta Cemetery, where Eva Peron and many other famous Argentinians are buried.

Along the way, your guide stops for a coffee and lunch break (own expense). Your tour concludes at one of the main restaurant districts so you can continue exploring on your own.

On March 26th my wife and I took what was supposed to be the 6-hour guided walking tour in Buenos Aires. We met Carlos and one other couple at the right time and place. Carlos, as previously reported, was very interesting and knowledgeable. Then the rather quicker than expected walk commenced. What happened next truly upset us and hope that it never happens to anyone else. At noon, the other couple took off guess it was a half-day tour and Carlos proceeded to dump us close to the Recoleta Cemetary and told us to wait there until 1:00 pm for Soledad to meet us for the second half of the tour. Not what we expected or appreciated. For some unknown reason, we still gave him a tip for the morning portion of the tour. When she did show up, she produced a map of BA and pointed out a couple of places close by that we would visit - - and then informed us that we were to take, at our expense, a cab to some other areas way beyond walking distance. We told her that was just not going to happen and tried to explain to her what walking tour meant. We did end up having to take bus transportation to some other section of town. My wife and I were just too disappointed in the whole affair to even begin to enjoy the rest of the day. And, when she finally left us at the end, because we were so far away from our original starting point, we had to take a cab back to our hotel. And, for some unknown reason, we tipped her as well. It was a total disaster and we were very disappointed with the whole affair because weve taken Viator excursions when travelling thru Italy and they were all well and professionally done.

Well recommended for a solo business traveller, first time visitor to Buenos Aires, with only limited leisure time but seeking to absorb as much of the city's vibe, character and life from the street level. Our guide, Carlos, was a charming and knowledgeable host with many stories about every street, corner and building we walked by. I'll do this tour again if I return to the city with a companion who needs an introduction to this fascinating place.

Brisk tour of central Buenos Aires. Lots of information. I was the lone guest on this tour. If I could change one thing I would encourage the guide to deal with questions when they are raised rather than saying he would explain later in the tour. The tour did give me insight into much of the history of Argentina and Buenos Aires.

The first half of the walking tour, in the morning, was very good. I enjoyed the guide and the range of interest. However, I was somewhat disappointed when, at lunch time, I was joined by another guide who took me to Recoleta where I thought we spent too much time. The second guide was also less fluent in English than the first guide.
