Hidden Graffiti And Urban Art Tour
Back on our bikes, we venture well off the beaten path towards Barracas, where we can marvel at the elaborate mosaic walls in Pasaje Lanin, and later let our eyes wander along the mural depicting the meeting of Styles Street Art Convention representing several collaborations between artists. After several brief stops to appreciate pieces by artists such as Pol Corona, Mart, Pum Pum, Martin Ron, and many more, we visit the Metropolitan Design Center - a hotspot of innovation and design technology - where we can take a small break to explore. Finally, we learn about the story behind Cooperativa Vieytes (the former Ghelco ice cream factory) through its mural laden with symbolism.
Our tour ends back at our meeting point in San Telmo where we recapture the day and recommend some BA tips. Lasting approximately 5 hours, we mostly streets with some bike trails and stop around 8 times to appreciate murals, see different neighborhoods, drink and learn about Yerba Mate, take photos, and enjoy a fun, creative and informative tour led by expert bilingual guides.

Wonderful informative and “off the usual tourist pathway” half day bike tour of some iconic Buenos Aires street art in the inner south suburbs. Definitely worth doing if you enjoy street / contemporary art.
AMAZING! If I had missed this bike tour, I would have missed an amazing side of the city. We felt safe with our guide strolling through all sections of the city. We learned so much about graffiti and artists we now recognize the importance and beauty of it all over the world. Highly recommended.
