Our most popular private walking tour will take you on a comprehensive walk around the diverse neighborhoods of Buenos Aires over the course of a full day, from south to north, telling the city’s story as we go. The recommended start time for the full day tour is 9.30am. However, as this is a completely private tour, you can of course request a different start time if it suits you better. If you wish to do so, please make this clear when booking. You get approximately 7 hours with your guide from the walking tour start point to the end of the day tour. Your guide will meet you at your accommodation (within the city of Buenos Aires) to accompany you to the start point, usually by taxi. This means that your total time with the guide (including transport time to the start of the walking tour) will be between 7 and 8 hours, depending on the location of your accommodation and traffic on the day of the tour. If you wish to just spend 7 hours with your guide or meet at the tour start point for any other reason, let us know when booking and we’ll send you clear instructions for meeting your guide at the walking tour start point.
