La Boca Walking Tour
Welcome to La Boca, a relic of Buenos Aires' vibrant past.
Join us for a private walking tour through one of the city's oldest neighborhoods: La Boca. La Boca is a barrio like no other in Buenos Aires. Along with its bohemian San Telmo neighbor, working class La Boca is the birthplace of art, work, and commerce in Argentina. Home to some of the city's most important historical figures, it is experiencing a rebirth as the city government has named it the new 'arts district' and has poised La Boca to become the new voice of contemporary Argentine art with a slew of new galleries, museums and street art initiatives.
This three hour walking tour will trace the history of the country and the cultural heritage of the La Boca neighborhood by exploring both the lesser-traveled areas of the neighborhood as well as its tourist attractions.
What does the tour include?
- A private tour for your group with a professional English speaking guide familiar with the ins and outs of La Boca.
- Traditional lunch at a family run restaurant that has been a neighborhood fixture for more than 60 years.
- Guests will have the option of making modifications to customize the tour to their preferences (museum or gallery visits, time changes, hotel pick-up). Modifications may incur extra costs.
- Following the tour, your guide will provide you with a customized map filled with recommendations for restaurants, bars and other attractions for the remainder of your stay.
When and where is the tour?
