Make your way to the San Telmo neighborhood, one of the city’s oldest, to meet your guide in the early afternoon. Get an orientation to your bike, urban riding tips, and an overview of route highlights before pedaling south to La Boca, a historically Italian and working-class neighborhood best known as the home of the Boca Juniors football club and for its brightly painted buildings. Along the way, stop to see murals by creative collectives like Red Sudakas and Triangulo Dorado and get the inside scoop on Argentinian street art. Continue on through backstreets and bustling thoroughfares to reach the Barracas neighborhood. Here you can feast your eyes on the detailed mosaics of Pasaje Lanin and the world’s largest street mural, a masterwork by artist Alfredo Segatori that spans three buildings.

Wonderful informative and “off the usual tourist pathway” half day bike tour of some iconic Buenos Aires street art in the inner south suburbs. Definitely worth doing if you enjoy street / contemporary art.
AMAZING! If I had missed this bike tour, I would have missed an amazing side of the city. We felt safe with our guide strolling through all sections of the city. We learned so much about graffiti and artists we now recognize the importance and beauty of it all over the world. Highly recommended.
