Buenos Aires Free Tours offers two DIFFERENT tours per day. One in the morning and the other one during the afternoon. Local guides show you the city that never sleeps, with their stories and secrets. They now also offer private tours which is a great way to see the city if you have limited time and are unable to join their regular group. For the free Buenos Aires tours you have to show up at the meeting points: -11 AM PLAZA DEL CONGRESO (Rivadavia Ave and Rodriguez Pena St) -5 PM at PLAZA SAN MARTIN (Santa Fe Ave and Maipu St, beside the horse monument). Both tours are different!

I did the tour of the city center with Vicky and she was great! Very knowledgable, funny, and friendly. I'm a tour guide too (for a completely unrelated company in Prague) and really enjoyed the tour! PLEASE tip your guide!

We took two tours from this tour company and they were both great. The morning city tour covered most of the downtown area and included many of the fancy homes in recoleta. We also took a tour of the artist community out of town. That was also informative and fun.

We took 3 pm English tour with Martin. He gave us a very thorough and detailed tour . His passion for the subject was very evident and we all learned a lot about Argentina. The political and economic woes were well covered and gave us all an excellent insight into the Porteño both past and present. So grateful to have... More

My girlfriend and I opted for the 11am tour of the City, and were not disappointed. At first there was a little confusion about who was running the tour as we arrived early (around 10.45am) and couldn't see any apparent tour guide. But then Jimena popped out of no-where and gave us a warm welcome. Her knowledge of BA was... More

Jimena's morning tour was phenomenal. She was so personable, spoke excellent English, kept the trip at a good pace, spoke with such passion about the city she loves and made the history come alive with her stories and wit. We were a group of 8 which allowed us the opportunity to get to know each other and to ask questions,... More

We did the Recoleta tour with Vicky. This is a great stroll to take on the first or second day of your stay in Buenos Aires. Vicky provides great information on the culture and character of the city. This is a very different tour compared to the downtown/Plaza de Mayo tour. It felt like a little less walking too. The... More

We took two tours, one with Vicky and one with Jimena in different parts of the city. Our guides were fun and well informed. Jimena gave us a good tip of a restaurant for dinner, Rodi's. Our group was a nice size(10-12) so you felt you were being personally led. We learned our way around the area very quickly after... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
