Caballito is one of the city's largest and most populated barrios. It is filled with a rich history, beautiful architecture, and neighborhood treasures that make it one of the most interesting boroughs in the city. It is a neighborhood, unfortunately, that many travelers to Buenos Aires do not get to experience.
The Locals Only Tour will take to the streets of Caballito to visit the sites you won't find in your travel books. Elisa, a local neighborhood resident who has studied its history and architecture, will guide you through a tour that will you show you local culture and porteño daily life.
You will visit a local food market that dates back nearly 150 years, one of the southern hemisphere's only remaining traditional barber shops which today functions as a living museum, the church where the Pope was baptized, a traditional elegant cafe, and a tango bar that was once a silo.
This is a three hour private walking tour that moves at a comfortable pace, stops often, and steps inside all of the spots visited.
