Learn why the world calls Buenos Aires the 'Paris of the South' during this 2.5-hour walking tour of Argentina's capital city. Take an entertaining stroll with a guide who is knowledgeable about its history, culture and architecture, and discover what makes Buenos Aires so special. You'll cover at least 25 must-see attractions and learn about the early days of Buenos Aires.

Stroll Florida Street, view the French splendor of the Paz Palace and hear about how Argentina was born at San Martin's Monument. Take in the architecture of Buenos Aires while passing the Kavanagh, Mihanovich and Strugamou buildings. Visit several churches, including Nuestra Señora del Pilar and a private cathedral called the Holy Sacrament. Check out the British Clock Tower while learning about the Falklands War, and see Arroyo Street with its art galleries and Alvear Street featuring palatial mansions. 

Visit Recoleta and Barrio Norte with the knowledge that most Buenos Aires walking tours don't go this deep into little-known facts. Your guide will leave no stone unturned as you're introduced to places most visitors don't take the time to experience.

This ended up a private tour as just the two of us took it. We met at a cafe and the guide introduced himself and we were off at cracking pace. The tour included the historical area of BA with lots of. Information about the buildings we saw. The tour is about 2 1/2 hrs of solid walking. The final stop was Recolata but did not include the cemetery. My only complaint was that we were left there to find our way back to our hotel, anther hours walk.

It was a morning start on a hot Sunday in January and it was just the 2 of us but I'm not convinced my guide's heart was in it. The good: she was charming and well-travelled herself so there was enough to talk about and she clearly knew her city. The bad: she told me she needed to make an important call which was fine but disappearing off for over 5 mins to make a personal call just to arrange a lunch date was taking liberties. The average: the whole tour.
