Buenos Aires Walking Tour and Palacio Barolo

Our Buenos Aires Walking Tour is the best way to get to know the city!

Our tour is conducted on foot, as well as in public transport: the Metro and Bus.

We go in small groups of a maximum of 12 people in order to ensure a unique and personal tour.

We aim to take you to the most striking and interesting parts of the city in the most eco-friendly way possible, all the while showing you the true Buenos Aires of a Porteño.

Walking through all the top locations, from the centre through San Telmo, La Boca and even Recoleta, and finishing the tour with a spectacular visit to the Palacio Barolo is a unique experience we want to share with you. You’ll learn the story of this striking building as well as explore its allegories to the Divine, and end our tour with the best 360° view in Buenos Aires from the top of the old lighthouse in the palace dome.

Comprehensive, unique and even spectacular, this is a tour you don’t want to miss!
