Discover the origins of the Argentinian capital on our Free Tour City Center. Enjoy the colonial hispanic architecture and understand the strong determination of the ruling classes of the 19th century to turn this city into a modern European capital in South America.

Hear at May Square the account of the insurrection in which a group of citizens made the most of the power vacuum in Spain due to the Napoleonic invasion to declare independence and set the foundations for a new republic: Argentina. Hear how they found themselves in a period of Civil Wars that would last nearly four decades.

Admire the Casa Rosada (The Pink House), marvel at the stories of San Martin, and be moved by the May Mothers, who every Thursday gather to ask for the return of their lost children during the 1970’s military dictatorship, the darkest period in the country’s recent history.

On our Free Tour City Center you will walk through the most history charged area of Buenos Aires, and we will give you the keys to decipher the bloody development of Argentina, helping you understand why one of the countries with the most natural wealth is incapable of overcoming its social and political issues.

City Centre tour was great

5 out of 5

Great tour all round! We did the City Centre tour at 3pm. Victoria our guide was great - funny, articulate, very knowledgable and great at speaking to the group. When we turned up there appeared to be far too many people there for the tour (perhaps having people to reserve a place beforehand could control this better?) however we could hear Victoria very well, she controlled the group well and lead us all safely to each location. All discussion points were very interesting - a must do!

Afternoon ‘City Centre Tour’

5 out of 5

Did the afternoon ‘City Centre Tour’ with Martín in the rain. He was very informative and interesting, with lots of useful advice for around Buenos Aires. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Buenos Aires, and is pleasant and enjoyable to listen to. The fact it was raining did not put him off! The tour was definitely worth doing.
