We enjoyed this tour - got to see a lot of artists and understand the origin and history of the graffiti movement in Argentina. Learned about the different styles and the other cultural aspects of Graffiti. Lucresia is very knowledgeable, nice, courteous. Would suggest that she gets a small mic because at times its really hard to hear her given all the noises on the street. Kathleen the apprentice was nervous but did a great job with the small part she spoke about. Her English is great. I would recommend that we spend a bit less time at the beginning with all the history - felt long - maybe weave that in along the way as we see more graffiti. Glad we did this tour.

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.

Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and connected to the street art world and gave us an insight into the different aspects of streetart and what it all meant. She was great at describing some of the pieces as well, making you see what the artist wanted to represent. Only disappointing thing was we didn't see a great load of the art. Stopped in at a gallery for way longer then needed in my opinion, i'd much rather have been on the street looking at the art.

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.

Who knew Graffiti had so much meaning! Loved the tour and the history that came along with it. Didnt love the art gallery plug or focus on local art scene along the way, but hey I guess every body gotta make a living haha. Would definetly recommend, I got amazing pics that I would otherwise not have been brave enough to venture into this neighbourhood it is safe, just wouldnt have gone by myself.

The tour was supposed to commence before 9 am and end at noon. We were not picked up until 9:20 am and there was another pick up after we were picked up. The tour was supposed to be in English, but there was a non English speaker on the tour so our guide spoke in 2 languages. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable, but we saw very little. I would not recommend this tour.
