Full description
How many times have you returned from a trip with so many photos of those beautiful, historic landmarks but with a feeling that you never really got to know its people? Its pretty easy to find tours that will take you around town to see the sights, but, if you're looking for learning about the locals, this is the tour for you. In 4-hours, an expert will share with you the defining elements of the culture, including the origins, beliefs, traditions, passions, foods, routines, etc., all while visiting the city sights important to Porteño. Begin with a pick-up, and then visit Boca, Caminito, San Telmo, Plaza de Mayo (main square) and then Diagonal Norte up to the Obelisco and Avenue Corrientes. During this part of the tour, you will walk, take subways and buses, but during these 4-hours you will dive into the Porteño/ local idiosyncrasy, talking about topics such as football, politics, religion, influences, mate, music, food and much more.

Great introduction!

My family of 5 with 3 teenagers had a lovely day out in the city. It was a great introduction to the different neighborhoods, the culture and history, and the people of Buenos Aires. Also made it easier to get around the city the rest of the trip with an introduction like this. Mariana was our guide and she was perfect. Recommend this very highly on your first day in town.
