About the tour

Bored of traditional tours that only repeat what appears on Wikipedia? We too. We invite you to know the most famous quarter in the city through a b-side tour focused on its social history. We start in Caminito and then walk through the non-tourist streets of the neighborhood. We are going to talk about the immigrant origins of La Boca, the peculiarities of the neighborhood artistic style, the importance of football and the problems of the past and the present. We will also visit one of its famous bakeries (where you can try some local pastries) and we will finish the tour next to the Bombonera (one of the most famous stadiums in the world!)

Ame el tour, el lugar, al guía a su país y la gente. Soy de México y escuchar la historia de la Boca contada desde alguien que vive el día a día como es el caso de Nicolás simplemente no tiene palabras, te hace sensibilizarte y crear consciencia sobre la grandeza y riqueza de los pueblos. Sin duda alguna tienen que hacer este TOUR, es increíble.

Aunque el tiempo no nos acompañó, el tour estuvo muy bien y la guía, Jazmín, fantástica! Aprendimos mucho tanto sobre el origen y evolución de La Boca, cómo de la historia de Buenos Aires. Lo recomiendo 100%!
