Discover unique places that many porteños don’t even know exist!
We will walk along the first avenue in South America that is a faithful reflection of the European style of late 19th century architecture in B.A
We will also visit gorgeous palaces and other buildings and you will learn the interesting history behind them. You will discover where the criminals were held during colonial times when there was no jail to hold prisoners.
I will show you beautiful monuments and sculptures including an original sculpture of “the thinker” by Rodin. You will also see other sculptures that were designed by a Belgian architect who was one of the most prominent artists of that time.
We will visit the oldest shop in the city: a fantastic pharmacy (the first one in the City) that is a living museum .We will admire paintings related to the pharmaceutical industry.
We will head into the station of one of the oldest subways in the world to view its original structure.
Enjoy a journey to an amazing palace full of analogies and references to Dante’s Divine comedy. The builder intended this place to be the resting place of the poet’s ashes. We will enter the artist’s interpretation of Hell.
We will stop at the headquarters of the “Mothers of Plaza de Mayo” (mothers whose children disappeared during the last military dictatorship) and we will visit a quirky political bar loaded with objects and references to figures like 'Evita', the 'Che', Martin Luther King , Fidel Castro, Chavez, Gandhi , etc. , in a sort of "Hall of Fame". Also, hanging from the walls we can see pictures, posters and historical objects that show the Mothers’ many years of struggle and their relationship with the rest of the world.
Finally, we will end our journey at a mystical, quaint and cozy tea and coffee place.

I am a Buenos Aires native who loves interacting with people and sharing my deep knowledge and passion for this city: its history, art, architecture, food, literature etc. The tours I offer are meant for people who love to explore places off the beaten track, and for those who enjoy discovering hidden gems. My Past and Present occupations: I was a bilingual assistant for a medical tourism company, history research assistant, and an adviser to a travel magazine about places and activities in Argentina. I have taken classes in Argentine literature and history, tourism, History of Art, Latin American Art, architecture and the history of Buenos Aires and its neighborhoods. Each of my tours lasts around 3 hours. We could take longer, as I am flexible to accommodate the needs and questions you might have. And if you want to linger a while, don't worry -- this is your tour and, because I only book small parties, you can linger all you want. This is not your typical "hurry-hurry" tour. Full profile
