The Old Buenos Aires is literally filled with stories, but you may get lost without a private guide in Buenos Aires. The oldest part of the city is called San Telmo. It is a place, where all the tourists go in the first place, when they arrive to Argentine. It is distinguished by its colonial buildings, different cozy cafes, antique shops and tango parlors, which could be easily found along its streets.

We begin our guided tours in Buenos Aires from the Lezama Park. It is believed to be the place where the famous Spanish conquistador landed, and where Buenos Aires was founded in 1536. Then we will move to Defensa Street, which happens to be the oldest street of the city. Here we can enjoy the site of beautiful colonial architecture and find out lots of interesting facts about Argentinean history and culture.

This lovely neighborhood is filled with various traces of the past. Afterwards we will pass to La Boca, where we will explore several most interesting and significant landmarks. You should definitely take your camera, as far as it is one of the most picturesque places in the whole Buenos Aires. La Boca is the place where tango dancers gather and perform. It is also visited by different sports fans, as far as there is a well-known football club.

Among other attractions you may find La Ribera theatre, various Italian taverns, and tango clubs. You should definitely visit the Quinquela Martin Art museum, which contains numerous paintings of Benito Quintela Martin.
