The AM tours finish around 1.30PM at our shop, which is sorrounded by really cool places to grab a bite. In the PM tours we will have a break around 4.30PM, where those who want can have snack or sit down for a coffee can do so. In any case, we recommend you to have breakfast or lunch before joining your tour (except of course if you booked for our delicious food tour: in that case come very hungry!)
Our tours are not to be cancelled in case of rain. That is why we recommend you to come to our shop even if it rains, because is highly probable that the tour will run anyways.

For those who want to do the south and the north circuits (strongly recommended!) and wish to pay in advance for both circuits, we offer a 25% discount on the price of the second tour.

Both circuits are really different one from the other. Trust the travelers on our TripAdvisor page when they say they feel as if they have visited two different cities on each tour. That’s why we strongly encourage you to join both our daily guided tours around Buenos Aires, to understand the reasons behind these contrasts. Also, by doing both tours you will have a great overview of the city in only two afternoons or even in the same day, saving time to go back to the places you enjoyed the most!
