About the guru Nicolas

I am passionate about knowing other cultures and helping people discover Buenos Aires. Curious is the best word to define me, I am studying sociology and I am a professional tour guide. I see the trip as a great book (only if you are interested in learning!). Founder of "La Otra Bs. As."(@laotrabsastour), alternative tours project.

About the tour

Tired of the "traditional style" tours? So do I. My name is Nicolás, I am a tourist guide and a sociology student Born and raised in Buenos Aires, I invite you to visit the most well-known neighborhood in the city through a different route. We starts in Caminito to walk through the "not for tourists" streets of the neighborhood. We will talk about the origins of La Boca, learn about its inhabitants and the problems of the past and present.Further, we're going to visit one of its famous bakeries (you can try some of its delights) and we'll finish the tour next to the Bombonera (my favorite place in the world!)

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Excelente descripción del barrio de la boca, rescatando la importancireque tu vieron tanto en su desarrollo y fisonomía como en su arte, los trabajadores.

La Boca obrera es un tour diferente que ve más allá de las vidrieras para turistas.

Si quieres saber de la identidad de este barrio no dejes de hacer este tour.

Ha sido una caminata muy entretenida, me ha entregado una bella perspectiva de lo que es La Boca, creo que justamente la perspectiva que buscaba, fuera de lo turístico, pude entender el barrio desde su origen migrante y la fuerza de la organización social que aún persiste aquí... y como si esto fuera poco, pude comer las facturas más ricas que he probado en mi visita a Buenos Aires. 100% recomendado

Nico nos conto sobre el barrio de la Boca desde una mirada alternativa a la cual estamos acostumbrados. Tematica social y actual. Descubrimos calles por las que nunca habiamos transitado. La panaderia la frutilla del postre. Muy bien informado y con datos especificos y curiosos. Ultra recomendable!!!
