My guide was Kat. She really knew great detail of the history of the painted houses, artists and the meaning behind each work of art. Every question was answered. I would really recommend this tour to see the true highlights of the area. As a side note, Kat was more than helpful with getting me back to the city and other tourist information.
Great tour of northern Buenos Aires street art including informed commentary on the genesis and development of street art in BA and opportunities to visit galleries profiling the work of the artists seen on the tour.
Excellent tour. Really informative and fascinating, and really enhanced our time in Buenos Aires.
We very much enjoyed the art work on this tour and I doubt if we would have seen any of it if not via this tour. We arrived in Buenos Aires around noon and the afternoon tour fit in perfectly.....just enough to make the day worthwhile, but not too long after a lengthy flight.
The Viator Small-Group Buenos Aires Graffiti Art Tour was very informative and enjoyable. My husband is a Graffiti-enthusiast and we were both impressed by the knowledge and depth of the guide in explaining the graffiti of Buenos Aires. Our only slight problem with the tour was the fact that we had to take a cab from our hotel a 45 minute ride to the place of departure. As we had just arrived in B.A. it was a bit of a surprise to find out we needed to do this, but we do understand the reasoning as the graffiti was centered in a distant area of the city. All in all, we enjoyed the tour and also the stops at the galleries where some of the art was sold.
This is a must do!!! Our tour guide was amazing! Very informative of current and history of BA Graf and local artists. Get to see ALOT of different types of street art. Tour has something for everyone's tastes! The tour not to be missed!
This tour was amazing. Both tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and personable. You really get a great sense of the cities history and will view some absoutely amazing and inspiring pieces. I highly recommend this tour.
My middle-aged husband was surprised how much he enjoyed this tour. We saw a wide variety of street art, from geometric handwriting to painting with several layers of color and design. Our guide's explanation gave depth and helped us understand the way street artists interact and how they chose where to paint. Our tour group had more young people than most tours, which gave the tour an extra dimension. To our surprise by the end of the tour we each had discovered a favorite among the artists. We went on the North tour so we didn't see the 3D turtle, which was my one disappointment. A little off the beaten path. Worth the time and money.
This was a great overview of Graffiti Art in Buenos Aires. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She discussed the art as well as the subculture behind the art.
Our guide was very knowledgable about the different ways people use graffiti art to convey their messages. A great way to learn more about this style of art and how Buenos Aires has embraced it.
Loved this tour! The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the evolution of street art in Buenos Aires. Most of it was walking with some time on the bus. Highly recommend this tour - there is some super unique art.
A very interesting tour, who would have thought that graffiti can be a high level art form. Very enjoyable tour, presenting different types of graffiti as social comment and art. Highly recommended.
Interesting to learn the differences between different kinds of graffiti and street art. Guide was excellent
The tour was amazing and very informative!! Anna was excellent!! I would recommend to anyone. I learned so much about graffiti and street art! This tour was very knowledgeable:)
This was truly a fun tour. We were extremely happy to learn about the history of graffiti in BA, see several non-tourist parts of the city, and see interesting art. It completely changed the way we look at graffiti, particularly in the Argentine context. This is a tour for people who want an inside view, not the same old same old tourist bumf.
Guide was very well informed and has "street cred", and we could tell that this was clearly an area of great personal interest. She was very friendly and forthcoming, and all this made the tour a very unique cultural experience. Highly highly recommended.
The Graffiti art tour was excellent. Our Guide knew a lot about art and gave us information on the
art, the Artists, and its relationship to the history of Buenos Aires. We saw many interesting and different examples of Graffiti. We learned so much. We would highly recommend this tour. It is a true Buenos Aires bargain.
