As stated in Frenchly article "With its grand buildings, European architecture and Parisian-style café culture, it’s no wonder that the capital of Argentina sparks frequent comparisons to Paris." Thus, this is why the city is often regarded as 'The Paris of South America.'
International Travellers at different areas of the City
With its rich history and architecture, it is definitely a "MUST-VISIT" City if you are travelling to Argentina. If you are a solo or first-time travellers to Buenos Aires, we would encourage you to join a tour with a local guide to have a better understanding of the country. Not only that, you will get to listen authentic tales and discover hidden gems that only the locals know.
One of the company that we would recommend will be Buenos Aires Free Walks.
In total, there are five different tours that is conducted separately in both Spanish and English speaking. Out of the five, two of which are free tours that occurs in the morning and afternoon for three hours long. The morning tours cover the architecture and monuments while the afternoon tours cover historic and origins of the city respectively. This is a tip-based tour thus, it allows you to decide the amount to tip the guide based on your experience during the tour.
The remaining three tours are paid tours and each tour will take two hours long. Per tour it cost only 700 ARS or 10 USD per person (which is very affordable). The amount can be paid directly to the Tour Guides and we would encourage you to bring exact change too! The paid tours cover different areas such as streets arts, famous cemetery and colourful building or houses within the City.
