Join a unique walking tour that explores the hidden gems of Buenos Aires that you will not find in guidebooks. This tour includes uncommonly visited city landmarks that deviate from the typical tourist locations. If you’d like some insight into local life or would like to learn about the local food and see what the locals do, come explore this authentic local cultural experience in a non-touristy barrio. Your guide, Elisa, is a native to the area and will divulge all the important aspects of immersing yourself into and coming to understand Argentine culture.
Throughout the entirety of the tour, she will explain immigration, gauchos, tango, and the historical and architectural evolution of the neighborhood. You'll travel back in time to the 19th and early 20th century to discover amazing places such as: a historic market built in 1889, an incredible old-fashioned barber shop that is also a living museum, a pulperia or gauchos’ bar, a truly impressive 19th century tea/coffee house; a legendary tango salon that was once used as a grain silo, and one of the most beautiful churches in the city and where Pope Francis was baptized. Because you enter several of the buildings that you visit, you’ll get an extra personal experience of each place that most large walking tours won’t be able to offer. Let Elisa show you around her native barrio!
Participants must be able to walk at a leisurely pace for about 3 hours.
This is a group tour. You may be in a group with other travelers. If you would like a private tour please contact email@example.com
I am a Buenos Aires native who loves interacting with people and exploring hidden gems off the beaten path. I love attending to smaller, more intimate tour groups where each tour is tailored to the travelers’ pace and interests. I am flexible, friendly, and love to accommodate to your needs and possible questions. My tours aren’t your typical “hurry-hurry” tour - feel free to take your time and explore! I want to make sure you will receive a truly personal experience with each new location. My tours include city landmarks that deviate from your typical must- see tourist stops, so you will have an authentic local experience.
I am certain that you will enjoy discovering unique places that are not on the touristic circuit or included in any guidebook like the places that the locals enjoy every day. If you seek off the beaten path locations instead of the common tourist attractions, love to listen to stories you might otherwise never have the chance to hear and are looking to experience the real Buenos Aires then join me on one of my tours for a very memorable experience!
