Explore one of the most emblematic neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires, home to tango poets, writers, artists, and most important of all: Footballers! On our Free Tour of La Boca you will walk through the most colourful neighbourhood of the Argentinean capital – one that has contributed the most to the country’s strong popular culture since the 19th century.
Discover how the neighbourhood developed during the 19th century due to the arrival of countless immigrants.
Visit one of the most important and legendary football stadiums in the world, La Bombonera. Dig deep into River Plate and Boca Juniors’ passionate football rivalry.
Understand the magnetism that the neighbourhood has had for artists in the last century, which led to the creation of La Boca Pictorial School, and learn how the opposition to most artistic movements helped root the popular and proletariat culture of the immigrants who arrived from Europe to the neighbourhood.
On our Tour of Las Boca you will understand the origins and the ingredients that helped give shape to the eclectic popular culture of Buenos Aires, which arrived to the rich New World from all corners of Europe – but most especially from the Mediterranean.

I joined La Boca tour and it was amazing!! There was only 5 of us in the group so it felt like a private tour. Mariana was our guide and she was amazing, full of knowledge and she really inspired me to learn more about BA history. Highly recommend it!! The other tour I went to had too many people so I couldn't hear anything, this one was perfect.
We had an excellent time exploring history of La Boca with Pablo, whose passion was amazing and made to experience awesome. We learnt about the history of Buenos Aires, La Boca as an area, tango and the colorful art surronding the area ...not to mention the anegdots around the local football's team history that would intrest even those who arent into sport!
