Buenos Aires Free Tour 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. We 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, no booking required: -11 AM PLAZA DEL CONGRESO (Rivadavia Ave and Rodriguez Pena St) -3.30 PM at PLAZA SAN MARTIN (Santa Fe Ave and Maipu St, beside the horse monument). Both tours are different!

This was a great tour for free (pay a tip at the end). Our guide was an architect teacher so very knowledgeable. Did a slow walk through a lot of the city.
