About the tour

Join us and discover the origins, the history and the present of the Argentinian capital on our Free Historical Center Tour of Buenos Aires. Enjoy the few examples which are left of the colonial hispanic architecture and understand through the buildings constructed after the independence the strong determination of the ruling classes of the 19th century to turn Buenos Aires into a modern European capital in South America.

Hear at May Square , the main square during the Spanish colonial times, the account of the insurrection which took place right there, in which a group of citizens made the most of the power vacuum in Spain, due to the napoleonic invasion, to declare independence and set the foundations for a new republic: Argentina. Hear too how after 6 long years of war, once independence was fully achieved, they found themselves in a period of Civil Wars that would last nearly four decades.

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!
